Lot Essay

Christie’s is thrilled to offer to our international collectors and clients the first ever example of the current production white gold Aquanaut Flyback Chronograph to appear at auction. Almost impossible to obtain on the open market, the present watch from the extraordinary Champion Collection provides collectors with perhaps the only opportunity for the foreseeable future to possess this latest white gold Aquanaut reference 5968G. Furthermore, it is presented in like new condition and with full set of accessories.

Reference 5968G
Described by Patek Philippe as “reasserting the contemporary casual chic of the Aquanaut Flyback Chronograph”, the white gold reference 5968G was launched in 2021, three years after the immensely successful stainless steel reference 5968A. Still the current production model, it features hours, minutes, date, chronograph and 60-minute register. The 42.2 mm. case, water-resistant to 120 metres, houses the 35 jewel automatic caliber CH 28-250 C movement which has a power reserve of 45-55 hours, the movement is visible through the sapphire crystal case back. The blue dial colour with black gradient is embossed with the ‘Aquanaut’ pattern and has white gold applied luminous numerals. The watch is complemented by the elegant midnight blue matching composite strap secured by the patented fold-over clasp secured by four independent catches.
