Here we go...

Oct 11, 2018,08:42 AM

I’m extremely happy to have got the phone call from my AD saying that my Aquanaut Chrongraph 5968A has finally arrived

It’s a special watch and I guess it will take some time getting used to it’s case dimensions (actually, I wore my 35 mm Calatrava 3445 today when I’ve picked up the Aquanaut).

As I will leave for a beach holiday on Sunday I went for the orange strap. Later on I will change to black.

A lot has been said about this new model and I am very curious how the honeymoon will develop. Most probably I will bother you with lots of pics of an orange strap from the Spanish beaches 😄

How did the pushers and chrono feel?

Great choice !

post some photos from Spain !

Very many congratulations!

It looks superb on your wrist and I definitely agree with your decision to go for the orange strap!

Excellent!!! [nt]

Agree, as I expected they are easily going for 2x on C24, with a current 'record' of $95k, which is pure insanity (of the buyers) for a steel watch!

 By: FabR : October 12th, 2018-01:51
Prices will probably adjust a bit after the first few months, but IMO this piece has all the right features to remain in huge demand..Never let it go, you bought a real winner!😉

Cool 👍 [nt]

Send us as many photos as you wish!!

I have seen this watch in person and I must say it does not look half as good as the one on your wrist. And I know exactly why!!! This watch was made for your wrist - it fits like a glove!! Congratulations!!! I was wondering whose wrist Patek was aiming f... 

Gorgeous - that combo is made for the beach

if you get in trouble in the water you just have to raise your hand and every life guard will see you instantly! Cazalea ...  

Huge congrats!

Realy like the orange 😘

I wish you great holidays in Spain

 By: dr.kol : October 11th, 2018-12:32
and enjoy your new watch. I like it a lot and it would be great to have one on my wrist here in Greece. Best, Kari

Like nearly always

5960A. I do not really visit the beach but rather enjoy the poolside in the shadow. For me my 5960 is simply the most comfortable watch. It has ’everything’ I need and it does not bother me to adjust it once every year. Furthermore, the watch is very very...

Wonderful choice. My chrono says hi 👋 ...  

This 5980 is top cool. [nt]

Nice pick up

 By: ThomThom : October 11th, 2018-13:17
Orange band really adds a beautiful overtone to the aquanuat. All the best enjoy

Huge congrats! Stunning pictures 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

You wear it well- lots more pics please

Really Fun Watch!

Could well be my next Patek. Congratulations!

Huge congrats! [nt]

Show us your orange swim trunks too.

 By: jomni1 : October 11th, 2018-18:30
Enjoy the watch.

I just realized

 By: roger.goodgion : October 11th, 2018-19:10
The chrono minutes display is not round. It mimics the aquanaut case shape. Cool touch.

Congrats! Enjoy!

 By: KSP : October 11th, 2018-19:19
Looking forward to getting one soon too. Curious to hear your feedback, I have some concern it may be too big for me.


 By: Greenwatch : October 12th, 2018-04:07
Orange strap changes the personality of this piece. Aquanaut and Chronograph - an “oxymoron” combo for me IMO but love the design and the utility of that timepiece. Please wear the watch in good health!

A Great Looking PP

 By: vicunaman1 : October 12th, 2018-07:43
The next generation of the brand still in it's infancy> If I acquire another watch, that will be the one... Have fun with it!!!! Steve

Very cool watch

 By: beejo : October 12th, 2018-11:01
And suits your wrist perfectly ,Enjoy. Best, Ahmed

Beautiful watch & a lucky man you are !

 By: Horology75 : October 12th, 2018-14:32
I’ve been told 1/2 years wait on it ...the orange and silver combo is just perfect and so wearable .

As promised... some more pics.

 By: cayenne1200 : October 16th, 2018-07:16

Orange. How can you not love it?

 By: Arie - Mr Orange : October 16th, 2018-08:21
Congratulations, would love to have that one in the collection too. Enjoy!

More orange

Superb pics

 By: ChristianDK : October 17th, 2018-22:54
you are obviously having a great time with your new friend. What area are you in? We are on the south coast over Christmas. Can’t wait....

Aah, ok. We want to try that...

 By: ChristianDK : October 18th, 2018-01:16
But we went for the easy solution to go back where we were last yeat. We are not THAT south ;-) we are going to be near Castel del Ferro, Spain Have a great time

Wow, you are on a roll, my friend:-)

 By: ChristianDK : October 17th, 2018-22:49
This one is so cool. Have a great Holiday

Congratulations!! Looks great both in black and orange and fits your wrist well! Was wondering ...

 By: patekova : October 28th, 2018-04:14
How easy is it to change the strap? And how do you do it? Best, patekova

I’m surprised they didn’t do a quick change system on this since it is sold with two bands.

 By: BMR : October 28th, 2018-07:31
Both look great. Orange definitely gives it an even more “sporty” vibe.

That makes sense.

 By: BMR : October 28th, 2018-09:46
I just think that fit and ease of use don’t have to be mutually exclusive of each other. There is always room for improvement. To me, this would be an improvement opportunity.

Yes, Fab, definitely more like standard Aqua with the black strap. But still a beauty. Orange is more like the USP of the chrono.

 By: cayenne1200 : October 28th, 2018-09:44
I’m happy with both and will change between the colours depending on the situation.

Thank you, Joe [nt]

 By: cayenne1200 : October 28th, 2018-09:45

My deepest congrats!!! Waiting for a call from my AD...

 By: luca.rev : November 5th, 2018-13:56
... enjoy at the max oh health, I must say that also in black is very nice, especially for the working time Best Luca

It's a GREAT watch!

 By: Mean Solar Time : November 5th, 2018-15:48
Casual elegance. The orange is a perfect orange too!

My favorite Aquanaut

 By: vicunaman1 : November 25th, 2018-08:57
This will give you much sunshine and margaritas+++++++++++++ The orange strap gives that extra 'kick'..
