Replica Patek Philippe Aquanaut Jumbo 20th Anniversary 5168G-001 Watch

The Case

The 42.2mm cushion shaped case uses a combination of a finely brushed and polished finish with a polished screw-down crown for added water resistance. The case is made of 18kt white gold. It features a satin-finished bezel and polished crown guards which protrude on the right side of the watch case to protect the polished crown. The crown, like the buckle and the self-winding rotor found on the watch’s movement, is emblazoned with the Calatrava cross; a symbol and testament of Patek Philippe’s commitment to horological perfection.

The Dial

The dial features a blue color fade that runs in a radial gradient with a slightly lighter blue center and darker blue edges. This design gives an even more three-dimensional look to the already 3D dial design. The applied polished index hour markers are thick, and the Arabic numerals are bold. They are both coated with a luminous material allowing for excellent visibility in low-light conditions. A white, finely printed seconds track encircles the perimeter of the dial. The hands are polished and filled with luminescent material.

The Movement

Automatic, rubber strap.

Replica Patek Philippe Aquanaut, launched in 1997, was developed by Patek’s then-president Philippe Stern as a slightly more accessible version of Patek’s more famous luxury-sport watch. The Aquanaut’s slightly rounded octagonal bezel, with vertically satin-finished flats and chamfered, polished edges, offered an aesthetic nod to that of the Nautilus, but its bold Arabic numerals and embossed checkerboard pattern on the dials and strap, gave it a sporty identity of its own.
