This ref. 4960J is a smaller execution of the Aquanaut and features a handy quartz movement. Sized at 30 mm it’s the perfect version for ladies or even gentlemen with small wrists. The characteristic octagonal Aquanaut case is executed in 18k yellow gold and comes with an embossed black dial, painted Super Luminova hour markers, 18k yellow gold applied Arabic indexes and matching 18k yellow gold hands. The 4960 also features a useful date window at the three o’clock position.

This watch dates back to 2006 and comes on a new black rubber Patek Philippe strap with an 18k yellow gold Patek Philippe butterfly clasp. The watch has just returned from our trusted Patek Philippe service center where it received a new battery and a fresh polish. The corresponding service papers as well as an extract of the archives are included.

Introduction

Patek PhilippePatek Philippe’s ultra exclusive timepieces have usually been reserved for the lucky few. Its mechanical masterpieces were traditionally made from precious metals and worn by an elegant lady or gentleman.AquanautThe Aquanaut was first released in 1997 as a Nautilus variant with lugs. That's right, a Nautilus with lugs. This limited edition ref. 5060J in yellow gold came on a leather strap. Clearly influenced by the Nautilus, it had the same porthole-shape case and similar dimensions as the midsize ref. 3800 Nautilus, but lacked the integrated bracelet and iconic ears on the sides of the case. The successor, the 5060S, was the first proper watch to be advertised as an Aquanaut. This stainless steel Aquanaut was the first to be fitted on a durable rubber strap and black embossed dial with the texture matching the strap, giving the impression of continuity like the Nautilus. The 5060J and 5060S were released in limited numbers only, but were soon followed by the 5065A and 5065J ‘Jumbo’ references with a slightly larger (38 mm) case in 1998.
