Description

The sporty Aquanaut collection has been launched in 1997 following two decades of success by its “Nautilus” sibling.
The story began following a special-order in the mid-90s for gifts to be given to best army officers so the design had to be something robust and for action.
It was intended for a younger customers base but older generation adopted it immediately, becoming an instant success due to its easy-wearability with the new “tropical” rubber strap and bold dial.
In 2004, the diamond set ladies Aquanaut Luce reference 5067A found favour among the female wrists.
To mark the 10th anniversary the extra-large 40.8mm reference 5167A was introduced and in 2011 the Travel-Time reference 5164A.
For the 20th anniversary they released the first white gold 42.2mm jumbo size, the reference 5650G Advanced Research Travel Time and two ladies versions; The Aquanaut Luce Haute Joaillerie 5062/450R and 5072R.

*The present model bears the “Advanced Research” badge and showcases two technical innovations, a Spiromax® balance spring made of Silinvar® with inner terminal curve and a flexible mechanism for the setting of the second time zone, which is visible on the left side of the dial.
The dual-time complication is very simple to use, just press the two pushers on the left side of the case to increase or decrease the hour hand by one hour at a time.   Perfect for frequent flyers to keep track of their local and home time coupled by a useful aperture with respective day/night indicators.
It is a limited edition of 500 pieces only.
