3KF Aquanaut 5167 - Yes or No?

Recommended Posts

kaykay

So, looking to buy an Aquanaut and chatted a bit to Joshua at Perfect Clones.

He recommended their 5167 for $528.

Movement is Miyota 9015 Modified Calibre 324SC and according to what I read it's a reliable movement.

 

Has anyone got one of these? Or something better?

I'm not that price sensitive so if there's anything better out there I'm open to it. 

 

Would very much appreciate any feedback from all of you wonderful people.

Been a member for a long time but just recently returned from a long absence. Looking forward to this.

 

Cheers all!

Sorry to reply in a non-helpful way, as I don't have one or have bought from PerfectClones, but I have been thinking about the same model and am curious if you ended up ordering it, or getting any decent feedback from people and decided to go with something else?

Sorry. No replies or feedback and I haven't pulled the trigger. Would really like some feedback before I do. So I guess this serves as a bump? :)

Do U have Link for this "528 Dollar Aquanaut"? 3KF and ZF are good choices , 3KF has the Clone mvmt , ZF decorated miyota. KMF also Not Bad , but DW is crappy

OK, i suppose Josh has wrong description Here, afaik 3KF are only available with the super Clone mvmt while Others have the modified miyota . There has been a V6F Version with ETA Clone , but it is no longer available

Aquanauts on the Market does all have flaws but they are not that bad. I would Go for ZF , CG is wrong but the Rest Looks OK. I dont like the 3kf DW

It’s a great watch but the clasp and strap aren’t good, you’ll need to get a ZF strap and buckle, just make sure they don’t send you the strap from the smaller 38.5mm aquanaut

didnt know if you can just buy one at a Patek Retailer? If so let me know.

He didn't - he bought a Gen Rubber B strap if you read what he has said. Rubber B straps are sometimes repped and sold by AliExpress etc.....

Madness of the highest order - even Gen PAM and Breitlings are only $150-160

It is expensive no doubting that but they are stunning quality (even more so when you consider I cut off about an inch from each side lol)

I’ve bought quite few gen rubber b’s in the past and they definitely add something to the overall feel

Looks great though doesn’t it !!

I’m just about to buy this one for my gold aquanaut

Will share pics when it arrives
