Remember when nobody wanted an AAA fake Patek Philippe Aquanaut? I do. Remember when they actually depreciated? Yep, definitely remember that. Oh well — the past may be in the past, but now’s the present, and presently we have the green-themed 1:1 replica Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5168G to tide us over instead.
But where the material combo of the Panerai made sense, this perfect replica Patek Philippe Aquanaut in green and gold doesn’t so much. If it were yellow gold, perhaps it would, but it’s not, it’s white — which very much looks like steel when partnered with such a casual color. I suppose it means you’re unlikely to see someone else wearing one when you’re riding the tube.
Peasantry aside, if the price boost warranted by the use of precious metal elicits no cause for concern, then what you’ve got here is a properly sporty cheap fake Patek Philippe. The Aquanaut has always resided in the shadow of the monumentally popular Nautilus, but this gives it a flavor distinctive enough to be appreciated as an entity of its own.
Don’t be under any false impression that this is a poor man’s Swiss movement replica Patek Philippe; it’s got all the bells and whistles, including the exquisite caliber 26-330 S C, all housed in a case that, at 42.2mm, actually wears like a modern sports watch rather than a retro callback. With the matching rubber strap, it almost feels like a watch you could do the gardening in. Almost.
Right, so you would probably need to be the kind of person who mops their brow with a thick roll of Microsoft stock to actually wear one of these whilst attempting any kind of manual labor. However, the sentiment still rings true. The bold green color accentuates the simplicity of the Arabic numeral-laden dial, the refined balance of the case. Gone are the flappy ears of the Nautilus, the broad, tapering bracelet. Instead, you’re left with a luxury copy Patek Philippe that feels like it was actually designed to be a watch, rather than trying to be a rip-off of a competitor from the 1970s.
So, don’t fear any Boxster/911 comparisons, because with a simple flick of the color wheel, high quality replica Patek Philippe has whisked the Aquanaut out from behind the Nautilus and sat it in the jeweler’s window directly beside it. Well, it would if there were any actually left for sale.
If you do ever decide to go green, these top super clone watches uk are a great place to start. I’m no fashionista, but green is one of those colors that will be forever popular, and what better way to brighten up your watch than with a splash of the old 490 nanometer light wave. They say green is a calming color, so maybe it’ll even help make your day a bit brighter too.
