Our opinion

Very rare reference in yellow gold, we appreciate the Aquanaut 5066J for its sporty-chic design in a reduced size of 35.6mm and for its rubber strap available in many colors... A watch with a magnificent yellow gold case and already a collector's item.

For over 25 years, the Aquanaut has been one of those watches that leaves no one indifferent. Its young, modern design is above all unexpected; characterized by its rounded octagonal case - inspired by the Nautilus case - it is also a technical evolution with its "tropical" bracelet, made from a new composite material that is waterproof and ultra-resistant to both traction and ultraviolet rays.

The Aquanaut is a traditional luxury watch, even if it doesn't necessarily fit in with the image we have of Patek Philippe. Before it, Audemars Piguet's Royal Oak and Patek's Nautilus also broke with the conservatism of the high-end watchmaking industry.

The Aquanaut, celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2017 with the launch of a model with a blue dial in white gold, is one of the brand's benchmark models.

L'entreprise fut fondée à Genève en 1839 par le Polonais Antoine Norbert de Patek et l'horloger tchèque François Czapek. Antoine Norbert de Patek avait fui la Pologne et était arrivé à Genève. Les deux associés étant en désaccord croissant, Czapek céda sa place à l'ingénieur français Jean Adrien Philippe que Patek rencontra en 1844 à l'Exposition Universelle de Paris. Cet ingénieur est à l'origine de la création d'une montre de poche remontable plus facilement que ses concurrentes de l'époque avec l'aide d'une couronne exterieure.

La marque fut reprise en 1932 par la famille Stern qui est toujours aux commandes de la manufacture à l'heure actuelle.

Autrefois sise à Genève, l'entreprise a regroupé toutes ses activités dans la peripherie genevoise, à Plan-les-Ouates et à Perly ainsi qu'à la Chaux-de-Fonds.
