Patek Philippe marked the 20th anniversary of its Aquanaut this year with the introduction of a white gold model that Aurum Holdings head of watch buying called “a real showstopper”.
Who are we to disagree?
The sportiest of Patek’s current men’s line up is a little larger this year at 42mm.
Its design pays tribute to the original 1976 Nautilus of the same size that is often called the Jumbo by collectors.
The £38,000 timepiece uses a new night blue colour that darkens to black toward the outside.
Its delicately embossed structure has Arabic numerals in white gold that complement new luminous five-minute markers, also as appliques in white gold.
