COVER-Patek-Philippe-Aquanaut-Khaki-Baselworld-2019

First we got it in blue now for Baselworld 2019 Patek Philippe returns with an audacious khaki green colored Aquanaut that “evokes a sense of adventure and far horizons”, as stated on their official press release. It’s actually not the first green Aquanaut they’ve put on the market, but the previous limited-edition 5167 version, released in 2011 came in a smaller 40mm case.

Aquanaut quite recently celebrated its 20th anniversary with the reference# 5168 G time-date model & “Travel Time Advanced Research” (Ref#: 5650 G), back in 2017. These models managed to showcase the most rudimentary and complex complications the brand has to offer, as you can learn more about here.
