Nautilus and aquanaut are two best-selling models of Patek Philippe, both also have a high popularity among those sports watches, especially Nautilus, which is considered to be a must-have stainless steel watch. In fake watch industry, there are several full stainless steel watches that are worth buying, Nautilus is one of them. Many factories made Aquanaut and Nautilus in our market, the most famous are two manufacturers, ZF and PF, both of them have made good quality replica watches of 42mm Patek Philippe Aquanaut, in the future, I will write one post to compare the 42mm Aquanaut between ZF and PF, however today, I will introduce the new watch from ZF, it is a new Aquanaut with 38.5mm in case diameter.
Compared the 42mm model, this Aquanaut is much smaller in case diameter, which is only 38.5mm, the case thickness is also only 8.6mm, less than 9mm on 42mm Aquanaut. So, for this Aquanaut 5165A, it is more suitable for people who like a samll size sports watch. The bezel of the Aquanaut looks unique, it more looks like a round, a bit slightly octagonal. About case, it has a high quality finish, compared with the finish on PF Aquanaut, I think ZF’s is better. The entire case is slightly curved, and every corner is smoothly polished without scratch touching, so the wearing comfort is highly guaranteed.
The dial is black, the texture on the dial makes Aquanaut unique and famous. The high legibility is another big selling point of the replica watch, besides the big square markers, there are also Arabic numbers, each marker is applied Swiss luminescence, so is hours hand and minutes hands. The white markers and hands are clearly readable not only because of the black background, but also due to the strong green lume light in dark situation.
About the movement, ZF uses an imported Japanese Miyota 9015, on its basis, some modification has been made on the auto rotor and movement plates to make it closer to genuine PP324 Calibre, actually ZF made it. The golden SEALs on the movement plate are correct, the jewels are also in right color, this is also the only one clone PP324 movement in our market whose balance wheel is in right position. So, even this is a replica with see-through crystal back, you will not be afraid to show it in front of your friends.
In conclusion, this new 38.5mm Aquanaut from Z factory is a replica watch that worth buying, it is exactly the perfect replica you are looking for, although the price is much higher than replicas from small factories.
