Patek Philippe’s Aquanaut Collection: Sporty Elegance in Luxury Watches
Twenty-five years ago, the launch of a new sports watch by Patek Philippe created a sensation in the watchmaking industry. Its name was Aquanaut, drawing inspiration from an earlier 1970’s model, the Nautilus. The rounded octagonal shape was also inspired by the Nautilus. Its contemporary and sporty looks continue to captivate luxury watch enthusiasts. The ‘tropical’ strap is crafted from a composite material that is highly resistant to UV radiation and saltwater. The Aquanaut Collection distinguishes itself from some of Patek Philippe’s more traditional watches in terms of appearance and style.

The cases are available in stainless steel, white gold, and rose gold. Some of the popular models include:
- 5167A-001 Stainless Steel
- 5167R-001 Rose Gold
- 5167/1A-001 Stainless Steel
- 5168G-001 White Gold
- 5168G-010 White Gold

One of the standout models is the Aquanaut Chronograph 5968A. It’s a dynamic stainless-steel watch featuring a 60-minute counter and a black dial. It comes with two straps: one orange and one black, both made of an ultra-resistant composite material.
The first chronograph in the Aquanaut collection is the Aquanaut Chronograph (Reference 5968). It features a self-winding flyback chronograph movement, an aesthetically appealing display with orange chronograph features against the black dial and is sold with two straps, one in orange and one in black, both made of ultra-resistant composite material.
The newer series of Aquanauts (references 5165 and 5167) have shallower dials, and the hour marker at 3 o’clock has completely disappeared. The 5165 was offered in traditional stainless steel, while the 5167 was offered in rose gold, providing a more luxurious option.
Among the currently popular models is the Aquanaut 5167-1A-001, which has a stainless-steel casing and a black dial. Designed for everyday wear, its attractions include luminous Arabic numeral hour markers on the textured black dial and super-LumiNova-coated central hands. It features a date window at 3 o’clock and is powered by Caliber 324 S C, offering a 45-hour power reserve.
