TIFFANY PATEK PHILIPPE AQUANAUT STEEL “TIFFANY & CO.” DIAL 5167A-001

The Aquanaut  steel was released in 1997, as the first Patek Philippe to be fitted with a rubber strap. Initially limited to just 1,000 pieces (as the ref. 5060A and 5060J), the model was introduced shortly after the brand’s first highly-successful sports watch, the Nautilus, celebrated its 20th anniversary.

Manufactured in 2016, this watch also has a rare double-signed dial by Tiffany & Co, the original retailer. Double-signed dials from Patek Philippe have a special appeal to collectors, given their exclusivity. Made available by a select group of retailers around the world, few are more coveted today than Tiffany & Co. – with others famously including Beyer Chronometrie in Zurich, and Gübelin in Lucerne. Examples like this reference 5167 with “Tiffany” on the dial are a testament to the deep bond shared by retailer and manufacturer.

The Aquanaut steel re-interprets a number of signature design elements from the Nautilus – most notably, the octagonal rounded bezel. It displays a high level of finishing, with brushed surfaces on the case front, and polished, beveled edges. The steel, three-piece case provides water resistance up to 120m, further featuring a screw-down crown.

The black checkerboard dial has luminova-filled index markers and is embossed with silver applied numerals, matching the texture on the rubber strap. The original strap is uncut and fitted to the new style clasp, accompanying the 5167.

The movement inside the reference 5167A is the self-winding calibre 324 SC, introduced in the early 2000s, as a marked improvement on calibre 315. The calibre beats at 28,800 A/h for improved accuracy, with a larger solid-gold rotor for increased power-generation – finished in classic Patek Philippe style, with circular Geneva stripes. The power-reserve is 45 hours.
