Our opinion: The Aquanaut model is from the waterproof sport range from Patek movement with automatic winding, caliber Patek Philippe 315 SC. The first aquanaut reference ever produced ref 5060 by Patek Philippe. The original model. They are even cheaper than modern ones so don't hesitate, the same phenomenon has already happened in nautilus with the explosion in the price of old references. This one has the particularity of having a tritium dial which has a superb and sought-after patina. A true modern collector's watch in perfect condition! Watch delivered with its archives confirming its production in 1997 during the first year of its launch! Moreover the nautilus signed clasp very collectible on this specific reference.
