Still think that the Patek Philippe Aquanaut Replica is some kind of lesser cousin to the Nautilus? This handsome, top-drawer version in white gold to commemorate the collection’s 20th anniversary ought to make you reconsider the notion.
Housed in a 42mm case – upsized from 40.8mm of earlier collections – the Copy Patek Philippe Watches Ref. 5168G is the largest Aquanaut ever. Stern remarked that it is a size that customers had been asking for and while he had finally acceded to their request, a 42mm case is “the maximum” the Aquanaut would go.
Nevertheless, this is a case of the customer being right, as the Ref. 5168G feels solid and weighty on the wrist, like how an ultra-luxury sports Patek Philippe Replica watch ought to. While heavy, the white gold case is slim at just 8.25mm thick.
Buffed with satin and polished surfaces to accentuate the signature profile of the Patek Philippe Replica Swiss Movement, it is beautifully complemented by a gradient blue dial, an execution previously used on Nautilus dials. Incidentally, the 42mm case size is an homage to the original Nautilus of 1976, which had the same dimensions and was nicknamed ‘Jumbo’.
