PP Aquanaut (Sale?)

Recommended Posts

Good evening all, 

What do you guys think of this Aquanaut Rep from Josh? http://www.pf-818.com/watches/patek-philippe/aquanaut/ppaq01022-aquanaut-men-ss-ru-blue-num-sticks-a-2824-special-offer.html
Seems to be priced much lower than usual at $168 with A2824 movement that seems pretty good if I remember correctly. Feel like pulling the trigger on this for it to be my first PP Rep (and first rep watch, previously only bought homages or Gens). Not too picky about details (Like super rep details, not a detail whore, just decent quality and well made will do as long as its reliable and keeps good time.)

Cheers!
JJ2

I often wait until these bargains pop up but you have to be quick. The movement is the 280000 bpm 25J 2824 so that alone makes $168 even more of a bargain.

I would make some quick enquiries and get it bought otherwise you will regret not doing.

Pulled the trigger and paid for already. Fingers crossed it comes with no issues. Can't wait!

Good buy! Thanks for the heads up, too - tempted by the black-faced one!

I have never ordered from PC before, but at that price, I may just pop my cherry!

Even on a SS bracelet it's that price too!  I'm so in :)

Just a shame about the closed caseback, but still...

It says display caseback but doesn't show a picture, will it definitely be closed? With or without seems a great watch at the price

If you click on sample qc pics it show the display back. Looks like an un-decorated A2824 to me...

Exactly right!

Only the Oscillating weight (Rotor) has the Patek Logo!

The rest of the movement is a sterile 2824-2.

Yup.

 

Anybody know if the blue dial ever came in the 40mm Aquanaut? I thought it was only in the white gold 42mm jumbo version?

I've found that I usually regret things I didn't do, more than things I have actually done.  Go for it.

No, I don't think the blue dial ever came in 40mm. If you check PP's webby blue dial came only in the WG 42mm version like you said. But I don't really bother too much buying it to enjoy as a rep :happy:.

Seems the SS bracelet version has a closed caseback

The dial looks significantly less sharp compared to gen on the white version

Might just go with the black dial/rubber band OG version
