   The Aquanaut series men’s watch was born in 1997. With a youthful and vibrant stainless steel or rose gold case and a composite material strap, it has become a representative of modern sports fashion. In 2017, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the collection, Patek Philippe broke through the boundaries and launched its first platinum watch. With a diameter of up to 42.2 mm, this new product features the midnight blue dial and strap, the largest size in the Aquanaut series.

   This year, Patek Philippe launched a new khaki green version of its platinum “Jumbo” Aquanaut watch. The bold color matching not only highlights the long-distance exploration spirit, but also elegant and exquisite, highlighting the temperament of Patek Philippe sports watches. The dial is decorated with a delicate and unique checkerboard embossed pattern that sets off Arabic numerals, 5-minute scales, Barton hour and minute hands, and these numerals and hands are made of platinum with fluorescent coating. The large second hand at 3 o’clock and the date window complete the time display.

   The sapphire crystal transparent case shows the precision components and elegant style of the self-winding mechanical movement, as if dancing the ballet of time. The thickness of this movement is only 3.3 millimeters, which makes it very thin. The finished watch also has the exquisite appearance of Patek Philippe timepieces, with a water resistance of 120 meters, but its performance is not inferior to outstanding professional models.

   The rounded octagonal case, the flat part is polished, the sides are frosted, the flat part of the bezel is decorated with vertical satin, and the sides are polished.

   The waterproof strap shows the advantages of composite materials: extremely resistant to friction, abrasion, seawater and UV radiation. Also equipped with the new patented Aquanaut folding clasp, four independent locks to optimize the switch device.

   The new khaki green Ref.5168G-010 is a new addition to the existing model with a blue dial and strap.
