THE AQUANAUT COLLECTION
Modern, sporty and chic
The Aquanaut, young, modern and unexpected created a sensation when launched in 1997. Its case was a rounded octagon, inspired by that of the Nautilus. And it sported a “Tropical” strap, made of a new composite material ultra-resistant to wear, salt water and UV radiation.
For more than 180 years without interruption, Patek Philippe has been perpetuating the tradition of Genevan watchmaking. As the last family-owned independent watch manufacturer in Geneva, it enjoys total creative freedom to entirely design, produce and assemble what experts agree to be the finest timepieces in the world – following the vision of its founders Antoine Norbert de Patek (1839) and Adrien Philippe (1845).
Thanks to its exceptional know-how, Patek Philippe maintains a tradition of innovation hailed by an impressive repertoire of more than 100 patents. In the hands of the Stern family since 1932, Patek Philippe remains at the leading edge of watchmaking technology and research into material sciences, thus contributing to the continual improvement of the long-term quality and reliability of its timepieces.
