Following the Aquanaut Ref. 5168G-001 in white gold with a 12 PM blue dial and blue elastic tie that we introduced two years prior, in 2019 Patek Philippe presented the new Aquanaut 5168G-010 portrayed by a khaki green shading which improves the liveliness of this model.
The dial’s emblazoned checkerboard design makes way for the applied Arabic numerals, applied five-minute markers and cudgel style hour and moment hands, all in white-gold with a glowing covering. A breadth seconds hand and a date gap at 3 o’clock complete the time signs.
With a measurement of 42.2 mm, this model is the biggest in the Aquanaut line and nicknamed “Enormous” thus. The adjusted octagonal case is upgraded by a cleaned finish on the level and a silk finish on the caseband, while the bezel switches back and forth between vertically glossy silk completed pads and cleaned flanks.
The sapphire-precious stone case back uncovers oneself winding assembling type 324 S C. Simply 3.3 mm in tallness, the development is level to such an extent that even with its intricate seals and gaskets, the complete watch is simply 8.25 mm thick.
The focal rotor in 21K gold gives a force hold of as long as 45 hours and it is beautified with perlage and Geneva roundabout graining just as an engraved Calatrava cross, an enrolled Patek Philippe brand name.
Water impervious to 120 meters/400 feet, the watch is coordinated to a khaki green elastic lash with a protected overlay over fasten, whose four autonomous gets improve the opening/shutting security.
The new Patek Philippe Aquanaut Ref. 5168G-010 with khaki green dial has a cost of Euro 36,610/US$ 39,690. patek.com
