Dimepiece Patek Philippe Aquanaut Stainless Steel
A stainless steel Patek Philippe Aquanaut on rubber bracelet. This is perhaps, alongside the Nautilus, one of the most iconic and sought after wristwatches in the world. When it comes to steel sport watches, trust Patek to deliver one of the most recognizable, desirable and expensive options!
A child of the 1970s, The Nautilus had already paved the way for Patek Philippe to enter the luxury sport watch market. Fast forward to 1997, and it was time for Patek to add a new design to its offering. Welcome to the world: the Aquanaut, a true child of the 1990s. Its design reinterpreted the Nautilus’s signature porthole shape but made it feel a little more modern and a suitable foil for those that either had a Nautilus or looked for something different altogether – all sitting on a new brick pattern rubber strap which references the dial’s design. This was then paired with a beautifully made stainless steel butterfly deployant buckle.
The watch appears to be unpolished. There is wear to the case (at the top of the brushed bezel) and some caseback wear to the tool spaces. However, the watch is in overall strong condition and is commensurate with age for a piece that is over 20 years old. The distinctive and unique dial is in perfect condition, and the Tritium on the dial has already aged into an attractive warm lemon colour with matching original hand set. The band and deployant are in excellent condition.
