Nomos Club Campus Group

Nomos Campus – the name tells the story

That¬īs a¬†mechanical wristwatch for a great start in life!

Either to celebrate academic achievement, starting a career or to set a clear signal against digital- and/or smart-watches as a young chap.

To own a Nomos Club is not a question of money, but a question of personal conviction! 

So listen dear parents, there is no reason why your kids should not continue a tradition and not wear a mechanical wristwatch!   

Patek Philippe Aquanaut Ref. 5168G

Patek Philippe celebrates the first 20 years of its Aquanaut with the new Ref. 5168G


1997 – 2017 … as time goes by!

I still remember when Philippe Stern, President of Patek Philippe at the time, presented the Aquanaut in Basel in 1997. The Aquanaut Ref. 5060A was a very sporty, chic, and contemporary wristwatch for men in stainless steel designed to appeal to a young generation of active people.  

This year Thierry Stern, President of Patek Philippe, presented the Aquanaut Ref. 5168G in a white gold case to celebrate the first 20 years of the Patek Philippe Aquanaut.
