Patek Philippe, the most famous independent watch maker in the world. Every Patek Philippe watch is completely handmade, they are the art treasure, people who are wearing Patek Philippe must be the noble. Besides its complicated models, the sports series Nautilus of Patek Philippe is also well known to the watch industry, in my opinion, its popularity is second only to Rolex Submariner. Because Patek Philippe Nautilus is highly welcomed, so it became the watch which a lot of watch factories competed to replicate, the earliest two factories that made replica Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 are BP and MK, now the latest version from MK is V6. In recent two year, another two factories named PF and JJ also started to make this replica, today, the watch I am going to share with you is the newest V2 edition from PF. I have compared the replicas from these four factories, the 5711 from PF and MK belongs to top level, while BP and JJ’s quality is only moderate. Compared the 5711 replica between PF and MK, I think the dial color of PF replica is closer to genuine. So, in the following article, I will give a full review.
This is the V2 edition, so some details have been upgraded, which include the case thickness. In the past, whether the Nautilus 5711 made by BP or MK, its case is very thick, because the movement equipped inside was an Asia ETA, the thickness of the case is more than 12mm. Now on this V2 edtion from PF, the case has been made to the same thickness as genuine watch, it is 9mm, which looks very thin. The case is measured to be 40mm in diameter, it is brushed. The bezel has the same brushed finish on the front face, while on its round edge, it is polished. The shape of the polygonal bezel is also improved, whatever you measure the bezel from any angle, the proportion will be very close to genuine case.
Besides the correct case thickness, the dial also has some big improvements. PF not only makes this replica watch in blue dial, but also in black and grey dial, whatever it is, the dial color of PF 5711 is closer to genuine than that of BP and MK. Besides, check the horizontal stripes on the dial, the spacing between each stripe is same, the height of stripe is also built according to the size of dial stripes on genuine watch. The dial looks very simple, featuring three hands on the center and a date window at 3 o’clock, you can get all of its functions just at your first glance. The hour markers and hands are applied with Swiss grade lume material.
The case back is see-through sapphire crystal, the movement could be seen clearly, which is an Asia clone Patek 324 automatic movement. In order to make this clone movement look 99% the same as genuine, PF factory imported movement bridge and plates from the Switzerland and installed them in this clone 324. Look at the Geneva Stripes on movement plates, they are beautiful. There are correct golden emblem on movement plate and rotor.
Now, the review of this Patek Philippe Nautilus replica is done. What is your opinion about it? I can not find any flaws on the watch, what will be the improvement made next time? Let’s expect.
