Patek Philippe is adding a little more color to its sporty Aquanaut watch aka the Nautilus’ younger brother. Based off a highly-limited green version of the Aquanaut that was offered to special clients in 2010-2011 — one example was auctioned off by Sotheby’s for ~$52,000 USD in 2015 — Patek Philippe has decided to revisit these green hues once again for 2019.
Working off the larger 42.2mm 5168 Aquanaut, the news 5168G-010 comes made in a full white-gold case and is defined by a matte Khaki Green dial and Khaki Green “Tropical” rubber strap with a metal folding clasp. The highly legible face features Arabic numerals, contrasting hands, large luminescent hour markers, and a date window at the 3 o’clock position.
Powered by a 324 S Caliber movement, the 5168G-010 Aquanaut has a power reserve of 45 hours and is water resistant up to 120 meters. This will most like be another watch to end up on Patek Philippe’s waiting list, but those who have the connections can expect to pay $35,000 USD for retail.
