The luxury brand’s latest steel watch is the limited-edition Patek Philippe Aquanaut Singapore, limited to just 500 units. This gets the ref. 5167A, with red accents and a red strap, to boot. The new timepiece made its debut along with others at the Grand Exhibition in Singapore.
Patek Philippie released its first Aquanaut watch in 1997, though model 5167 came later. As such, this doesn’t technically qualify as a new model given its historical underpinnings. That said, this has increasingly eluded even the most dedicated timepiece seekers due to the rising interest in steel sport watches.
The classic watch measures 40mm in diameter and comes with a rubber strap and a time-and-day display via the caliber 324 SC.
Much like equally the luxurious Nautilus and Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, the Patek Philippe Aquanaut has stood the test of time as a classic option. The watch features a signature crosshatch black dial with a red minute track. Plus, a matching red handset. Complementing the red rubber strap are red accents. This nods to Singapore’s signature color.
Again, only 500 units will be sold. And it’s not hitting the global market. If you want one, you’d have to have a unit shipped from Singapore or Southeast Asian markets. No surprise there, though. Some Patek Philippe watches comer harder to get than others. If you regard yourself a serious timepiece collector, this one should be easy. The trick is being super quick, though. Act now unless you don’t want to snag one of only 500. Hit the link below to learn more.CHECK IT OUT
