Patek Philippe was founded in Geneva, Switzerland. It is the most famous Swiss watch brand, you can not buy one Patek Philippe watch even you have enough money. Patek Philippe has always been the synonym of nobleness. Most of watches produced by Patek Philippe are very complicated, some are even custom made for special persons. However, there are also sports models Patek Philippe made for the public, such as Nautilus, Aquanaut. These are two popular sports series of Patek Philippe, they are also the mostly replicated Patek Philippe watches in our market. A lot of factories has released high quality replica editions of Patek Philippe Aquanaut and Nautilus, they are BP, MK and PF. BP is the earliest factory that made a moderate quality Patek Philippe Nautilus replica, but there is a big disadvantage on BP version, the auto rotor is too noisy. MK factory makes good quality replicas of Patek Philippe Nautilus, but still not the best. So, today, I want to show you the best Patek Philippe Aquanaut replica made by PF factory, which also makes the full gold Nautilus replica I reviewed here before.
The case looks very unique, it is like a square shape but the corner is polished so smooth and round, the case shape is very similar to that of Nautilus. The frontal face of bezel is brushed, while the side is polished perfectly to be like a mirror. The lugs are polished, while with brushed sides. Check the right case side, the crown has meticulous Patek Philippe logo, two guards that protecting the crown are polished. The whole case has a beautiful arc shape, the curved case design makes it fit your wrist well. Besides, you will find the case is very thin, which is only 9mm.
Octagonal dial is in black color, the unique patterns on the dial looks like “grenade”. The dial is very simple, you can read its three basic functions of the watch from the dial, hours, minutes, seconds and date. Hour markers use Arabic numbers in white, next to each Arabic hour marker, there is also big square markers in patina color. These Arabic numeral hour markers and patina square markers are applied Swiss lume material, so are hour and minute hands, so the dial has a very strong lume that also lasts. The “grenade” patterns make the dial look more three-dimensional. At 3 o’clock, there is a very small square window showing current date, which features black font in white background. The dial is not like the style of any other Swiss watches, it has exclusive features that only belong to Patek Philippe Aquanaut.
The replica is equipped with a clone Cal. 324 that is based on a Chinese Automatic movement, which we also call it Asia ETA 2824-2. The movement has beautiful decoration and golden seals on plates and auto rotor. BP uses a Miyota modified movement, but a lot of clients complained it has a big noise from its inner mechanism coming from the rotor, so PF factory adopted an Asian ETA 2824, which completely solves the noisy issue, the Asian ETA 2824 also works very stable.
About the band, it is made of premium rubber that is imported from Malaysia. By the way, the rubber band has the same unique pattern design as black dial.
The Patek Philippe Aquanaut replica has three models in stock, in different dial color, please see the collection below.
