The Patek Philippe Aquanaut Travel Time is the perfect watch for the frequent flier who already has everything.The 1990s saw the arrival of smart-casual and business-casual clothing in the workplace. The Patek Philippe Aquanaut—which drew inspiration from the midsize ref. 3800 Nautilus—was launched in 1997 as the quintessential watch for this era: it was suitable for diving and other sporty activities but could be worn equally well in the boardroom or, in case of this particular model, on a private jet.The Aquanaut bears a striking resemblance to the Nautilus with its porthole-inspired octagonal bezel and with alternating satin-brushed and polished finishes. Nevertheless, it has a uniquely sporty look thanks to the rubber strap and the matching embossed black dial.The ref. 5164 was introduced in 2011 and was the very first Aquanaut with a complication. The watch features a dual time-zone function, which means that the local time can be read on the regular hands and the home time is displayed by a skeletonized GMT hand. Two pushers on the left-hand side of the case allow for the easy adjustment of the GMT hand in one hour increments. Moreover, two small apertures display day/night indicators for the local and home time zones.The watch features a 40.8 mm stainless case and a height of 10.2 mm. The see-through sapphire caseback provides an uncensored view of the expertly finished automatic movement with a 21k yellow gold rotor.The watch dates back to 2013 and is in excellent condition with only a few scratches here and there. It comes as a full set and a black rubber strap with stainless steel Patek Philippe butterfly clasp. 


Patek PhilippePatek Philippe’s ultra exclusive timepieces have usually been reserved for the lucky few. Its mechanical masterpieces are traditionally made from precious metals and worn by an elegant lady or gentleman.Patek Philippe 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.
