Patek Philipe continues to wow us with their luxury wristwatches and the Aquanaut Chronograph Reference 5968A is no different. A great addition to the Aquanaut Collection and the first self-winding chronograph---how can one not salute this classic timepiece? Not only is it visually appealing, but it epitomizes a contemporary chic aesthetic and draws the attention of younger watch enthusiasts. Patek Philippe pushed the envelope with an eye-catching bright orange strap that's guaranteed to turn heads wherever you go.
Of course, the brand did not forget the signature octagonal shaped case, but they've also added features to this style that we just can't get enough of. Let's start off with the movement--it is equipped with the CH 28-520 self-winding movement which elegantly integrates the chronograph function into the existing Aquanaut design. The hours and seconds from the subdial were removed--but for good reason! This beautiful construction helps to give the dial a cleaner and sharper look, which is a definite plus. It is highlighted with orange accents and water resistant up to 120m (no wonder why this collection is the holy grail for water activities). Lastly, if orange isn't your thing, don't worry because the brand has you covered. There's also a black composite strap than can easily replace the orange style for the simple laid-back individual. Which style will you be adding to your collection?
