Patek Philippe 5065a

Introduced in 1998 following the successful 1997 launch of the ref 5060 - the 5065 Aquanaut has since become somewhat of a classic with collectors. Inaugurating the Aquanaut line with the first jumbo iteration, many collectors prefer this ref. 5065 for its more conservative size (38mm) and richer dial. This present example is part of the very first batch of 5065 watches made in 1998 and has developed one of the most incredible patina we’ve seen on a 5065. With its steel case and rubber strap, the 5065 pairs well with just about anything you throw at it. Accompanied by its Extract from the Archives of Patek Philippe.
