Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5167 Review – Entry Level Patek

http://www.crmjewelers.com – Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5167 Review – Entry Level Patek

In this video, I will review the Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5167A, which I consider to be an entry level Patek Philippe because of its lower, more accessible price.

The Patek 5167 Aquanaut is one of my favorite entry level luxury timepieces from the Patek Philippe brand.

The Aquanaut 5167A comes with a stainless steel, 40-mm case with a sapphire-crystal case back. The clear case back provides a glimpse at the stunning and sophisticated Patek mechanism. The watch sports an automatic movement, a date function and easy-to-see Arabic numerals.

The Patek Philippe 5167 is a great casual attire type watch that comes with a black rubber strap and a deployment type clasp. The overall subtle look of the 5167A does not make it the ideal watch for those who want to stand out in the crowd. The watch’s low profile case makes it very comfortable on a man’s wrist, but if you like conspicuous style watches, the Aquanaut 5167 is not for you.

Patek Philippe and NATO / Calf Straps

One thing I do not like about this Patek Philippe timepiece is the rubber strap. The reason for this is because I don’t like watches with straps that hug or lie too close to the case. However, changing the strap on the watch, in my opinion, completely enhances the look of the Aquanaut for the better.

On the video, I show you how awesome the Patek Philippe 5167 looks with a black NATO strap. I also recommend opting for a nice calf strap to make the overall combination a lot more visually appealing and cooler – a huge plus to strengthen your Watch Game!

Patek Philippe Aquanaut Price

The retail price of the 5167 Aquanaut is ,300. If you do not mind wearing a pre owned Patek, you can buy this watch used (in like new condition) anywhere from ,500 to ,500 if you know where to shop.

The reason there isn’t much margin between the new vs preowned versions of this Patek Philippe is because the company’s watches do not experience a lot of depreciation. They preserve their value really well. Nevertheless, if you’re a smart shopper, you can still save some money on this entry level Patek purchase.

After wearing the Patek Philippe 5167A watch for a few days, it really grew on me. I got so used to it’s casual look and high level of comfort so much that, at times, I would forget I was even wearing it!

If you are looking to purchase your first Patek Philippe watch, but don’t want to spend a lot of money in the process, I strongly recommend the Aquanaut 5167.

    I certainly remember when a 'normal' mens watch was about 33-35 and now a 40 is almost considered small or the minimum for the average guy to wear. My Dad was in WW2 and he brought back a few watches from Europe, most were barely 34 MM, now that's certainly considered a ladies watch

    Two words:  Travel Time.  Eric, another fantastic video!  Again, I love how you keep it concise and talk about the IMPORTANT points.  Some watch reviewers run on for days about stuff that's really not important.  If we want to get tech specs, we can look it up on the company's website.  Again, nice job!

    This is a very cool watch! but the design doesn't speak to me, I much prefer the Nautilus, maybe because I'm such a fan of Royal Oak design 🙂 Maybe in person I would change my mind

    Great review and great look on the NATO strap. Can you share the width size of the NATO strap to fit on this 5167 and also the 5164 ? Also, where can I find that NATO strap to fit the dimensions ? Thanks !
