The history of the Patek Philippe Aquanaut

The Patek Philippe Aquanaut range launched in 1997 and created a sensation throughout the industry. Although heavily inspired by the Nautilus, the Aquanaut was designed to appeal to a younger, sportier crowd that had just found itself flush with cash thanks to the dot com boom.

The Patek Philippe Aquanaut Ref. 5060A kickstarted the story with an unusual design and a bold, rubber strap. It was followed by the 1999 launch of the Ladies’ Twenty~4, and around 10 years later, the first Patek Philippe Aquanaut Chronograph arrived.

Every new and used Patek Philippe Aquanaut represents a modern and unique take on the Swiss luxury watch market.

FAQs about Patek Philippe Aquanaut

Why is a Patek Aquanaut so expensive?

Patek Philippe watches, in general, are rare and exclusive - and this is what hikes up prices. The Aquanaut has a reputation for being a great investment choice. That, and its ability to shake up the whole brand, has proved it’s worthy of a high price tag.

What is the waiting list for Patek Philippe Aquanaut?

The Aquanaut has a waiting list of around 3 to 5 years for new models. You can purchase a used Patek Philippe Aquanaut at Trilogy Jewellers. Our sourcing service is second to none, so we’re confident we can help you find whatever model is on your radar.

Can you swim with Aquanaut?

Patek Philippe Aquanaut watches are built to withstand water - including salt water. You can swim with an Aquanaut but should avoid using functions such as pushers or setting the time while the water is underwater or still wet. It’s recommended that you pressure test your watch every year to make sure it’s sealed.
