Re: Ugly looking new Patek Aquanaut

I agree it’s not pretty, but It’s a limited edition 5167, apparently only 500 will be produced and no doubt every single one will be spoken for very soon...

So many watches, So little time...

Ugly it may be, but if you can get one at MRSP then investment it definetly will be, as the demand for this and the Nautilus carries on with its crazy upward spiral.

PP could sell a piece of poop with a red strap and it would sell. Oh wait...

I don't like rubber straps, but I would definitely go for that watch on a nice bracelet. Mind you, the current Aquanaut bracelet is not one that I consider "nice."

I’m not a fan of the Aquanaut (or Nautilus, for that matter) to begin with, but with a normal strap or bracelet, I think the red on the dial would work just fine. Mind you, I still have no interest in one, they simply don’t excite me, even at non-inflated prices.

thats an understatement, the PP bracelet is something I'd expect to see on a fossil

Price aside, I like it. I have always enjoyed how the waffle dial carries right through into the strap and then if you add red, it gives it the pop it was always lacking before.

I actually do like the Nautilus bracelet, particularly the older one that had screws (instead of pins). The Aquanaut bracelet is not nearly as nice.

Re: Ugly looking new Patek Aquanaut

I find it funny how the Aquanaut currently sells grey in the 40s, the Nautilus sells grey in the 70s now, but no one says boo to this. Yet a GMT Master II sells in the teens and everyone loses their minds crying conspiracy.

Because 'normal' people never assumed they could get a Patek in the first place. So there's no difference between $40k or $400k. Note, I have no problem with this at all, nor the current state of Rolex.

I hear ya. I once had a chance to buy a Nautilus Annual Calendar for $35 and passed; I stupidly figured one would pop up again sooner or later for around that.

Also passed on an Aquanaut for $28, a Batman for MSRP, and - I s**t you not - an APRO 15400 for $13.

*sigh*

thats the because the number of people who can afford a Patek is much smaller than that of GMT...so the crowd of people complaining is much higher

I dig it the dial, but to my eye a brown or black strap would be better.

Ugly looking new Patek Aquanaut

On the contrary, it looks gorgeous to me. Very subjective...
