For a week’s post, where I compare the modern and vintage IWC Ingenieur Automatic, click here.Caleb Anderson is the Director of Outreach in the internet vintage watch souvenir theoandharris.com. Since starting at Theo & Harris, he has garnered extensive knowledge on vintage watches, and spends much of his time sharing his remarks within the field. Currently located near New York City, he is a persistent student in all things historical, a writer on watches, and a casual runner.Usually seen on its own dark rubber ‘tropical’ strap beneath reference 5167A-001, the Patek Philippe Aquanaut Steel Replicaon stainless steel bracelet ref. 5167/1A-001 is a timepiece that’s seldom seen around. Since we’ve already reviewed the mention Patek Philippe mention 5167 right here, for this particular insider review, we’ll concentrate on the stainless steel necklace, its structure and overall appearance of the watch with it. The Aquanaut was initially released in 1997 under reference 5065A and mention 5066A –full history on its launch and the reference 5065A right here — since the only Patek Philippe watch fitted with a rubber strap and prepared to take on all kinds of actions inside or outside the water.While for all, the Aquanaut ref. 5167/1A-001 on bracelet makes the watch less of a true Aquanaut –originally conceived with a rubber strap –, we feel that the look on the stainless steel bracelet makes the Aquanaut resemble the Patek Nautilus to certain extent and that is something we totally love.Just such as the Patek Philippe Aquanaut ref. 5167A-001, the mention 5167/1A-001 on stainless steel bracelet is fitted with a stainless steel case measuring 40 mm in diameter. Featuring an embossed black dial –ruthenium looking having a brown and greyish hue– the opinion includes white gold applied Arabic numerals with luminescent substance, a white minute track and also a date apertuere at 3 o’clock with all the conventional typeface utilized by Patek Philippe round its watches.

Up to now, the Aquanaut has been available in the classic 40mm three hand and date model, the travel time version, and also the very trendy white gold 42mm released for the version’s 20th anniversary last year in 2017. The chronograph is a natural next step, also there are a lot of individuals around who desire the newest image of a Patek but at a bit with a contemporary dimensions and sporty design to feel natural on the wrist. This is that piece, in my opinion.The 42.2mm wide and 11.9mm thick case keeps from being the typical chronograph since the flyback chronograph CH 28-520 C caliber movement permits the chronograph hand to serve as the seconds hand as well, with Patek crediting the friction-free clutch for this. As a flyback chronograph with no seconds sub-dial, you see that the 60-minute chronograph counter that is aesthetically similar to the instance shape of this watch at 6 o’clock. Again, the orange chronograph hand, 60-minute sub-dial hand, along with sub-dial minute markers include just enough color to the watch. What disturbs me no end is the fact that the window can not match the dial color. It’s a shame, and one that carries across several Patek models including the Nautilus.The CH 28-520 C grade is created of 308 components, operates in 28,800vph, also has a power reserve that ranges between a minimum of 45 hours to 55 hours depending on use. Turning the watch round reveals the exhibition caseback, showing off the motion using a 21k gold central rotor. On the right side of this case are just two pushers and the crown, together with both o’clock pusher for starting/stopping the chronograph where the 4 o’clock pusher is employed for its chronograph reset and flyback functions.

In addition, the opinion has extra thick hour and minute hands, a 120-meter water resistance, Arabic numerals and boxes for every hour and, finally, an understated square date indicator at the 3 o’clock mark. From the porthole-inspired circumstance, to the movement and date index, to the somewhat similar hour mark and thick hands — no one will argue the fact that this view comes with a forefather. But interestingly, the Nautilus is not the only one.A very interesting feature in this show is in the non-integrated bracelet together with all the watch; while at first this might seem just practical — a rubber strap is easier to clean, replace, etc., especially with the daily beatings Patek motivates you to provide this watch — it is also a bit of a hat trick to the long history of rubber straps, divers, and summer. It is a reference that becomes a little more obvious with understanding the title of Patek’s only composite strap: “Tropical.” There is a reason the Aquanaut remains controversial with Patek purists — it is, like the Nautilus many years before it, a watch that did not, and does not, match the standard idea of a luxury timepiece. Similar to the AP Royal Oak and the Offshore (previously) launch in 1993, all of these series defy what we think a watch needed to match a particular price tag — and therefore we should be grateful to Patek Philippe for maintaining horology interesting. While, personally, even if the cost wasn’t a determining factor, I do not think I would ever own one, I fully understand why many want to. The Aquanaut is bold, it is interesting, and — unlike the Offshore’s connection to the Royal Oak — Patek wanted it to be independent enough of the family while still giving the watch a very interesting history.

Patek Philippe continues to surprise us in this 2018 variant of Baselworld. Following a rather unexpected perpetual calendar around the Nautilus, the brand now has a chronograph version of this Aquanaut — a first since the coming of the model in 1997. And there is more as the Aquanaut Chronograph 5968A comes with bold touches of colour on the dial and the strap. Like or not but Patek is shifting forward.The Aquanaut was the very first Patek to be purpose-built for an active life, for sport and for aquatic purposes. It is not that the Nautilus was considered a dress watch, but it was more of a mixture between elegance and sports. The Aquanaut hasn’t hidden its raison d’être. It was even the first Patek to feature a rubber strap — and in 1997, which was pretty rare. For the first time in its history, this modern icon receives a chronograph, alongside the two other existing versions — the time-and-date and the traveling time models.For the occasion, the newest goes marginally rampant with the Patek Philippe Aquanaut Chronograph 5968A spruced up with a colourful dial and smart straps. However, for the rest, the integration of the chronograph has been done in a subtle manner, without altering the overall style of the Aquanaut.Even with the addition of the two chronograph pushers, the octagonal form of this situation remains intact — and the integration, without being radical (whatsoever) is pleasant and balanced. The case measures 42.2millimeters in diameter — and is quite streamlined on the wrist and 11.9mm in height — a very good depth to get an automatic chronograph.
