For this weeks Spot the Watch, we decided to focus on wearers of two particular models from Patek Philippe. The models are the Aquanaut and the Nautilus.
Now the Aquanaut can be viewed as the Nautilius’ little brother but it is still a versatile timepiece with its rubber strap that matches the texture of the dial. The first two owners of the Aquanaut are from the Beatles. They are Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr. Pretty interesting they both like to wear the exact same model which is the Ref 5167/A in stainless steel.
Another wearer of the Aquanaut is the famous investor George Soros and his smaller Reference 5066A.

Now onto the Nautilus wearers. The first owners are from the Iron Man series of movies. Robert Downey Jr who plays Tony Stark aka Iron Man and Don Cheadle who plays his best friend Lieutenant Colonel James Rhodes.
Robert Downey Jr has been spotted wearing the Ref 5712/A, featuring moonphase and power reserve indicator.
Don Cheadle owns the classic time only model Ref 5711/A. He also likes Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and Offshore models. Coincidentally the Royal Oak and the Nautilus were designed by same man: Gerald Genta.
Claudio Marchisio, a Italian midfielder for Juventus and Karim Benzema, a French striker who plays for Real Madrid both love their timepieces. They own the same stainless Patek Philippe chronograph the Ref 5980 in stainless steel.
