Introducing: The 2021 Aquanaut Collection

Aquanaut and Aquanaut Luce
Patek Philippe is revisiting the collection known for its modern, sporty chic – and launching a new travel watch for women. Building on more than fifteen years’ success, Patek Philippe is presenting a new development in the design of the ladies’ Aquanaut Luce, namely a larger diameter (38.8 mm) and a new integrated strap in a composite material. This model of casual chic is available in steel (Reference 5267/200A) or in rose gold (5268/200R) with a choice of dial colors and coordinated straps. Also making its debut in the ladies’ Aquanaut Luce line is a completely new travel watch, as elegant as it is practical, powered by a quartz Travel Time movement (Reference 5269/200R). The Aquanaut models for men, meanwhile, are enriched by the arrival of the first white-gold version of the Aquanaut Chronograph, with a color scheme of midnight blue or khaki green (Reference 5968G).

For fifteen years, the Aquanaut Luce has enjoyed outstanding success with women, who delight in its unique style and the elegance that it brings to every occasion. It has become a cult watch and Patek Philippe is now adding to its allure. It is revisiting the original design of 2004 in a new generation of quartz-powered models in steel and a self-winding model in rose gold that together will take over from the previous models. The manufacture is also introducing the first additional function to join the Aquanaut Luce collection: the Travel Time dual time zone

The Aquanaut Luce quartz in steel, Reference 5267/200A:
a larger case with a new integrated strap in black, white or khaki green. Since its launch in 2004, the ladies’ quartz-driven Aquanaut Luce in steel Reference 5067 has appeared in a range of colors (including black, safari brown, pearly white and blue-gray). Patek Philippe is giving fresh allure to this flagship model of modern sporty chic by endowing it with an enlarged diameter of 38.8 mm (previously 35.6 mm) and an integrated strap whose contours follow the curvature of the case and the lugs. From now on a new, larger case and an integrated strap will equip every Aquanaut Luce (except the Haute Joaillerie models)

Aquanaut Luce automatic Reference 5268/200R-001:
A larger diameter and a new integrated matt-white strap. The Aquanaut Luce with a self-winding mechanical movement was launched in 2010 by a rose- gold model with a chocolate brown dial and strap (5068R-001), joined in 2013 by a version in white (5068R-010). Today it affirms its feminine take on sporty chic with a new model measuring 38.8 mm in diameter (up from the previous 35.6 mm) on an integrated strap that continues the visual harmony of the design.

Aquanaut Luce Travel Time Reference 5269/200R:
A new practical and elegant travel watch for women. Reliable, accurate and dynamic, the Aquanaut Luce is renowned for its special brand of casual chic, an asset on every occasion. To be the perfect travel companion for today’s active, cosmopolitan woman it lacked only the display of a second time zone. That wish has been granted with the new Aquanaut Luce Travel Time Reference 5269/200R.

The rich collection of Aquanaut models for men ranges from simple models in steel, rose gold or white gold to those equipped with complications that are useful in everyday life. This year it has acquired a new version of the Aquanaut Chronograph. A new take on sporty elegance for the modern man.

Aquanaut Chronograph Reference 5968G:
the first version in white gold, paired with midnight blue or khaki green. In 2018, Patek Philippe launched the first chronograph to join the men’s Aquanaut collection – a complication ideally suited to this line’s dynamic sporting spirit. Reference 5968 made its debut in a steel model with a black dial mounted on a black strap in a composite material and delivered with a second composite strap in orange (5968A-001).

Now, the manufacture is introducing the first white-gold version of the Aquanaut Chronograph, with either of two colorways for the dial and matching strap: an elegant midnight blue shading to black on the dial (5968G-001) or an audacious khaki green (5968G-010)
