This is an Aquanaut Patek Phillipe watch (Ref # 5968A) for the new millennium. This one is a little newer than the Nautilus, but it was formerly more modern than the Calatrava. It is a type of sports watch that is compact and understated in appearance. People who want a touch of luxury with their everyday clothing without yelling about it should get it.

However, that subtlety is not for everyone, as Patek Phillipe has realized in recent years. The current generation Daytona, for example, with its ceramic bezel carries more visual weight than its predecessor despite being the same size, and there needed to be something from Patek Phillipe to move on up.

The Patek Phillipe Aquanaut chronograph, technical reference 5 9 6 8 8 0 0 1. It's made of stainless steel, it's fairly huge, it's both technically and artistically remarkable, and it's a full-service strap-worn sports chronograph for the summer of 2020. This watch is still pitching two years after as you can see forty two point two millimeters in stainless steel so reasonably slim approximately as thick as a Rolex Daytona at 12 point two millimetres.

So, while it appears thicker, it is not; it is a thin watch that will fit beneath the cuff from lug to lug. The clock measures 49 point 7 millimetres with a 22 millimetre space between the lugs and the strap has a gorgeous geosphere design moulded in you can see that similar pattern has been cut into the dial itself let's throw it on the wrist and then take a look at the hardware and software.

The timepiece is thin and you can see how thin it feels when it's on youur wrist it will easily slide underneath any cuff including a type dress shirt and brought across the wrist but not oppressively. So, We could recommend this watch for a risk as small as 14 centimeters circumference now the timepiece includes what Patek Phillipe calls a composite strap you may call it a rubber strap regardless it's a good-looking piece that's well matched.

This reference was created primarily for daily wearers. It was designed to be a sports watch that can also be used as a daily watch with aquatic feel. It was designed to be a mix of elegance and athleticism.

The main progression occurs on the dial, while there is no drama and a very clear inclusion of the chronograph function can be seen. This reference employs Patek's in-house Calibre CH 28-520, which has a single subdial for the 60-minute counter. The nicest aspect is that there are no seconds or 12-hour subdials to run across the watch. It's a deliberate decision by the watchmakers; it's not popular, but it's very neat.
