Released in 1997, the Patek Philippe Aquanaut was created to lead Patek Philippes expansion into a new market segment containing a younger, newly minted clientele. Aesthetically inspired by the Nautilus, the Aquanaut divided opinion amongst collectors thanks to its clear attempt to speak to a market that Patek had never spoken to before, the young. With its release as a youthful luxury sports watch echoing that of the Nautilus in 1976, the Aquanauts design was modeled after the tastes that Pateks usual collectors did not favor, and so it aided in bringing about the modern era of Patek Philippe. Featuring a more straightforward case shape, a tropical rubber strap, as Patek called it, and a svelte 35.6mm diameter, the Aquanaut was looked upon as a kind of Nautilus Junior. However, this comparison was somewhat justified at the time as the Aquanauts octagonal bezel is similar to the Nautilus, with just rounded over edges. The so-called Tropical rubber strap was also a point of contention as the Aquanaut was the first-ever timepiece from Patek to feature one. As the rubber strap could not be physically integrated into the case, Patek mirrored the dials tapestry design onto the surface of the strap to give the Aquanaut an aesthetic flow and sense of continuity, much like the Nautilus has with its integrated bracelet. Limited to only 1000 pieces, the Aquanaut ref. 5060 speaks to Pateks drive for the exclusive, luxurious, and meticulously crafted. Powered by Pateks automatic cal. 330 S C movement, the Aquanaut was a commercial success, and so it entered regular production with the ref. 5066A and 5060J following. The Aquanaut now stands as one of Pateks most popular offerings, and it is the ref. 5060 that we have to thank for that.
