The Nautilus that was to become the Aquanaut

The genesis of the Aquanaut

The link between the Nautilus and the Aquanaut is the yellow gold Ref.5060. Secretly introduced as the Nautilus 5060S in 1996 it could be seen as a test from Patek to have a Nautilus on a leather strap. This led the brand in the following year to introduce an all new collection of sports watches based on this reference, later to be named Aquanaut. A new model line which was designed to appeal to a younger audience that had a decidedly more casual approach to luxury. After the official launch of the Aquanaut collection in 1997 the reference of the watch changed from 5060S to 5060J.

Men's watches

Everything used to be better in the old days, honestly, this saying already got rather on my nerves when I was with my parents. It's unthinkable that I would ever use it myself. After all, today we live in times of the internet, with all kinds of information at our fingertips, and so on and so forth.

Rolex' Left Hand

Rarely could a Rolex collector feel so - excuse me - made fun of as at the start of the Watches and Wonders Geneva 2022. Instead of new models, new innovations, Rolex actually comes - again - with a GMT-Master II in stainless steel. However, the Rolex novelty of the year is not adorned by a really improved movement or a slimmer case, but simply by a new bezel colour. Again!
