Patek Philippe released the first chronograph Aquanaut, a fitting complication for the sportiest line from Patek. It was introduced 21 years ago in 1997 as an entry to the brand less expensive than the Nautilus and less stuffy than the simpler Calatrava models. This new Patek Philippe Aquanaut Chronograph Ref. 5968A Replica is a very cool looking watch, appealing to a younger demographic interested in contemporary touches like a 42.2mm wide case and touches of color, as there are orange accents as well as the option for a full orange-colored rubber strap in addition to the existing black rubber strap.
The 42.2mm wide & 11.9mm thick case copy patek philippe keeps from being the typical chronograph since the flyback chronograph CH 28-520 C caliber movement allows the chronograph hand to function as the seconds hand as well, with Patek crediting the friction-free clutch for this. As a flyback chronograph with no seconds sub-dial, you see the 60-minute chronograph counter which is aesthetically similar to the case shape of the watch at 6 o’clock. Again, the orange chronograph hand, 60-minute sub-dial hand, and sub-dial minute markers add just enough color to the watch.
The CH 28-520 C caliber is made of 308 parts, operates at 28,800vph, and has a power reserve that ranges between a minimum of 45 hours up to 55 hours depending on use. Turning the watch around reveals the exhibition caseback, showing off the movement with a 21k gold central rotor. On the right side of the case are two pushers and the crown, Patek Philippe Replica Men Watches with the 2 o’clock pusher for starting/stopping the chronograph where the 4 o’clock pusher is used for the chronograph reset and flyback functions.
Of course it wouldn’t really be an Aquanaut without the composite rubber strap, and the chronograph comes with both the black and the orange straps. While the black one looks great, I would probably go all out and wear the orange one until I start to get bored of it. It’s also worth noting that Copy Patek Philippe Watch has updated the strap and it now features four catches to improve the clasp. Of course, the watch isn’t just sporty by design, it’s also got a water resistance rating of 120m, so go ahead and wear it out on weekend trips.
While I appreciate the Aquanaut Travel Time for what it is and the fact that it is indeed a useful piece for frequent travelers, it’s a complication that I would never use as much as I’d like to and honestly I don’t find it all too attractive. For all but a select few it’s tough to make the Travel Time an everyday Patek Philippe Replica Swiss Movement while at the same time the three-hander lacks a certain edge or attitude, so Patek is right on the money with this more mass appeal watch.
