Patek Philippe Aquanaut Luce Watch 38.8mm 5267/200A-011
When launched in 1997, the Aquanaut watch created a sensation and it remains every inch as daring today. The case and the rounded octagonal bezel, both inspired by the Nautilus, stand out by their instantly recognizable shapes and alternation of polished and satin-brushed finishes. The dial and strap in matching colours, embellished with an embossed checkerboard pattern, lend an original, dynamic touch.
The strap is a feature in its own right. It is made of a high-tech water-resistant composite material that is supple, comfortable and pleasant to touch and noted for its extreme resistance to traction, wear, saltwater and ultraviolet radiation. In short, it was made to partner with the most active lifestyles.
Patek Philippe reinterprets the quartz Aquanaut Luce watch in stainless steel with an enlarged 38.8mm case and a new integrated strap in a composite material, whose contours follow the curvature of the case and the lugs. This epitome of contemporary casual chic is attired in an elegant shade of green adorning the dial and matching strap. Water-resistant to 120m, the rounded octagonal case is enhanced by polished and satin finishes. The bezel has polished bevelled edges and is lit by a circle of 48 round-cut Top Wesselton Pure diamonds (~1.11 ct). The patented folding clasp is secured by four independent catches.
This new shade of khaki green is identical to the color introduced on the men's Aquanaut Reference 5168G-010 in 2019 and seen this year on the new Aquanaut Chronograph Reference 5968G-010. It is also a nod to the original model of 2004, 'Adventurous Khaki', a slightly different shade, which created such a stir with its unexpected alliance of steel, diamonds and zest of daring.
