Why We Love it

Now here’s something you don’t see every day.

What we have here is clearly a Patek Philippe, but is it a Nautilus or an Aquanaut? The answer is: yes. The reference 5060J is a moderately scarce watch — introduced in 1996 for the 20th anniversary of the Nautilus, it was a piece that completely changed that famed model’s profile, adding lugs, a solid gold case, a leather strap, a glossy black dial with Roman indices, and removing the famous Nautilus case “ears” that were inspired by the hinges on a porthole. It was produced in a run of only a few hundred pieces and was meant to be a dressier version of the ref. 3800 Nautilus. Then, a year later in 1997, Patek released the first official Aquanaut, the 5060A — a watch clearly based on the 5060J’s profile.

This particular piece is the successor to the short lives 5060J, a Reference 5066J. Dating to the 2000s it features a 35mm 18K yellow gold case with a sapphire crystal, a signed crown, a deep glossy black dial with applied luminous 'Roman' indices and matching 'feuille' handset, a date window at 3:00. It comes fitted to a black alligator leather strap with a signed 18K gold deployant clasp and is powered by Patek's automatic winding Calibre 330/194 automatic movement - visible through the sapphire exhibition caseback.

A steel Nautilus is practically impossible to buy at retail, and the Nautilus isn’t much easier to come by. But the 5060J is a bit of both, and what’s more, is a historically significant model within the Patek Philippe catalog.

What more could a collector ask for?

Brand Story

+
Patek Philippe.

Founded in 1839, Patek Philippe is one of the oldest watch manufacturers in the world with an uninterrupted watchmaking history. Few luxury brands in the world carry the gravitas of their name, and for good reason. The firm's commitment to excellence in horological manufacture is unflinching, and their track record of innovation in design without peer.  They continue to lead the industry, and even their fiercest competitors have nothing but the utmost respect for the company.

Owning a Patek Philippe is for many the ultimate goal of timepiece collecting, and for a certain type, the only timepieces they collect. Whichever way you look at it, there is no questioning the elegance of design, superlative manufacture of their cases and movements, or the sheer elegance and emotion that comes from owning one.

Of course for a brand that is steeped in heritage, we are told ‘You never actually own a Patek Philippe…”

Well, you know the rest.
