No, it isn't a Nautilus......

Well I did purchase my first Patek Phillipe rep.  After reading DC's review from 2016, and chatting with him about this rep I was convinced and purchased a 5070r. Thanks DC for your input and awesome review of the 5070r!   Also, just so anyone looking into that 5070 review, even though his links appear to killed by the cursed Photobucket fiasco you can still click on Pic icons and they will open.  There are some great pictures of the gen variants.  

I am thrilled with this rep!  The RG with the exquisite gray dial is an excellent addition to my collection and is a perfect accent to my current black, white , & blue dial reps.  I really wanted a rep with a Venus HW movement and was originally looking at an OM alternative but was on the fence with that direction as I wasn't taken by the style.  Another watch fanatic friend of mine suggested looking into the Patek complication alternatives as some came with the Venus HW movement.  I'm glad I did. This watch to me is much more ..... unique in look, style and is simply an impressive looking watch and is indeed a classic representation of Patek style.  

I am not going to attempt a review of this rep as it has already been expertly done.  Everyone already knows about the sub dial size/spacing differences between the gen and the rep but that doesn't bother me at all as this watch simply looks amazing and is a quality tribute toward the brand design.  But I do definitely want to share some pics of my recent addition.  

Hope you enjoy!

There is no cure for the Patek bug.

Agree totally with Brent

If anyone ever pulls you up on the sub dial spacing, ask to see their gen Patek, and when they don't produce it, tell them to fuck off

Watch looks beautiful mate 

Pair it with a nip of Louis the 5th Cognac and you're ballin'

Thanks for the comments.  I am totally stoked on this watch.   Sooooo glad I chose it over  the OM SM alternative I was originally contemplating.  

I imagine there will another PP at some point in the future once I recoup some funds.   I ordered 4 reps in the last 2 months.  Spouse suggested I go for electro-shock therapy.  It didn't work.....

Yes indeed. A final touch on this rep would have been some Patek engravings on the venus movement  similar to the gen.  That would be the icing on the cake.
