Today we have a look at the Patek Philippe Aquanaut in stainless steel. I really wish I never ran into the Aquanaut, because I fell way too hard for this watch. Much more than can be considered healthy. The second I put this on the wrist you could stick a fork in me, because I was done. To see why, check out the video review below:

Patek Philippe initially released the Aquanaut to attract a new audience. The Aquanaut certainly looks very different to any other Patek in their collection. So the question is then, do you like it? Do I like it? No, I absolutely love it.
