Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5065, "Jumbo"


The Aquanaut marked the beginning of a new generation of luxury sports watches for Patek Philippe, inspired by the unmistakeable lines of the Nautilus. First introduced in 1998, this Aquanaut 5065 combines a "Jumbo" 38mm case with tritium lume on the dial, which has developed a warm patina over time. This example was recently serviced by the Patek Philippe Japan in May 2021, and was only unsealed from its servicing pouch for the purposes of photography.
