Patek Philippe 5168G ‘Khaki Green’ Aquanaut
With a 42.2mm diameter, this 2019 and the 2017 Jumbo are the largest models in the family to date. You can tell that our perception of large watches has altered since 1997 and a 42.2mm sports watch these days is pretty standard fare. The slim case height of 8.25mm, the flat profile and the almost weightless rubber strap make this Patek Philippe Aquanaut Jumbo 5168G extremely attractive to handle. Plus there is the reassuring and luxurious weight of white gold. The finishes are superlative – vertical satin finish on the bezel and polished flanks – and underline the watch’s pedigree. The choice of white gold is also smart because it can always be downplayed as steel.
