Dear Friends,

They include three new references for Ladies (5267 in three declinations, 5268, and 5269), and two new white gold declinations of the 5968, previously only available in steel.

Thank you, Fab.👍😊

Am I the only one being underwhelmed here?

 By: Centurionone : May 27th, 2021-07:39
I expected something more exciting for the Aquanaut line, like a different colour , metal 🥴

I think we have a pretty large variety here -- seven models are really a lot, but certainly the focus has been more on the Ladies offerings this time (which I find pretty remarkable in breadth)...

 By: FabR : May 27th, 2021-07:57
I can agree though that those that have been following the usual online rumors and were expecting a 5267 for men (e.g., a larger 5167!) will be pretty disappointed ;-)) The two new Men's offerings (even if they include no new reference) I'm sure will be a... 

All amazing watches .

If only they are available for a normal collector without a history at the AD 😬

I like the 5968G-001

 By: DOCSF : May 27th, 2021-08:02
I have asked my AD whether he could get me one

logical move from PP ...

The chronograph Aquanauts won’t disappoint when you see them.

2021 Aquanaut & Nautilus

 By: RGS : May 27th, 2021-08:15
New Aquanaut and Nautilus references are all fine. But PP needs to be careful moving forward. Too many different colors (dials, straps) of the exact same references are starting to show up each year - or every 2 years. Either discontinue earlier variation...

I don't know J, it must be an error, request other references

PM sent.

Love the 5968 Khaki....

 By: JBP99P : May 27th, 2021-09:21
FabR referring to the rare handcrafts or something else?

Both ;-)

Imagine the 5968G-010 without that white date window.

 By: Geo : May 27th, 2021-08:37
Patek could at least have made the date-disk in the same color as the dial. George

There should always be room for improvement.

 By: Geo : May 27th, 2021-10:22
I know it is a common feature for years and that was the reason why I never pulled the trigger for the Aquanaut and I do like the concept, with the rubber strap.

The point is that what you consider an improvement would make it look worse for others. No universal truth here.

 By: trs : May 27th, 2021-11:31
In my view, the white date window steps in nicely for the big white 3 numeral. In contrast, a color matched date would look like a black (or blue) hole in the dial, as if they forgot the big white 3 numeral there. Trying to hide the date window makes it s... 

about 5269, I dont know how to adjust the home time hand?

 By: anaroku : May 27th, 2021-09:09
there is not the push button , is this by using the crown?


 By: FabR : May 27th, 2021-10:49


 By: RGS : May 27th, 2021-09:37
The 5267 is what the modern era Ladies (or even unisex?) Aquanaut should be. Great case size, diamonds, updated and more fitting strap and clasp. Quartz or mechanical. Perfection. Bravo for that.

green green again

here it is live

 By: chris7509 : May 27th, 2021-12:16
Blue one, seen this morning in the Salon. Quite thick, heavy.. you need a real wrist for it... A priori the same as the steel one, but in gold with a specific dial. Price is 150% of the steel ... Good luck for those looking for it ... ...  

At almost 39mm, if there will be watches without stones in the future I can see many men going for the “ladies” watch.

 By: Jay (Eire) : May 27th, 2021-12:37
It’s kinda like the Pilot, in reality the smaller Pilot wears better for a lot of people.

Ahem, ahem….

 By: Clueless_Collector : May 27th, 2021-17:37
This one is more gender neutral than the new Aquanaut…but honestly, I don’t mind wearing the Green version 5267 🤣 ...  

Lol…sorry to say I think by now if I don’t get the call…it’s over.

 By: Clueless_Collector : May 27th, 2021-21:01
Sorry Fabrizio, but you have to go back to your Mama p

I feel bad my friend, so if you can help nudge the PP Gods in your connections and …

Point them to my directions, I’ll reserve a Michelin restaurant now 😂


 By: FabR : May 27th, 2021-21:21

As for the men’s releases, the green & blue are appealing. But I think the steel version with orange accents is still more desirable.

 By: BigAppleBill : May 27th, 2021-13:06
Though I continue to be extremely happy with my choice of the 5164. Pleasingly symmetrical while being a very useful complication for travel.


 By: TheCollector1688 : May 27th, 2021-13:22
I also prefer the 5968A version. These watches are meant to be worn sporty and having a G version doesn’t go with the everyday wear mantra. It will be a scratch magnet…


 By: keks : May 27th, 2021-14:23
I would really enjoy wearing the green 5968g but madness in demand makes this a rather unlikely purchase unfortunately... for me that is... but if given the opportunity would be delighted to wear!

Many thanks, Fabrizio.

 By: Pretty Boy : May 27th, 2021-14:34
🤔 Not for me. There are many other PP 2021 novelties that are more convincing, IMO. Best, V.

wonderful !

good with the 5167 !

Love the Blue white gold chronograph

 By: socal to az : May 28th, 2021-13:36
I can understand the point of view of those that say there is nothing new under the sun here. If you were only to look at this current release, I might agree. But look back to just a few months back where there has been release after release after release... 

Glad you enjoyed the releases, and thanks for your feedback. I think there's little doubt the combination of quality, breadth, and depth of Patek's offering is unique and unparalleled...just to mention one factor that make it the undisputed #1! ;-)

 By: FabR : May 28th, 2021-16:31
And we are not even done for this year! I agree that since you're already covered in terms of green Aquanauts (even before this color got "rediscovered" by everyone this year, hence double congrats! ;-)), a good choice for you next might be a blue sports ... 

Very much on expected lines..

 By: chintu : May 30th, 2021-02:24
Go with a green dial; plonk existing calibers into a ready cases ; change a strap and there you go; Another Aquanaut set is born; and perhaps being positioned by Patek as a Nautilus alternative to some extent. Good marketing strategy from Patek to exploit...
