Totally agree - PP offer(ed) a wide range of coloured rubber straps to previous generation of aquanaut. The profit margin should be rather high given the price point, so why not do it for the latest generation

I called into the London Patek Salon last week and asks about the green straps.
Firstly I was told that the strap was originally fitted to a limited model. But that the traditional black one and the brown strap were available at £180.00 each.
When I pushed on the availability of the green one, the staff member said that they could send a request to Geneva, but that it may get turned down.

Tony, just tell them to simply order the product code Iīve posted on page 1 of this thread. The green strap is officially listed in the PP catalogue.

Hi Rollee1,
I have a friend who is now in HK. I'm hoping that I can ask him to get it for me. When u said "boutique".... did u mean PP AD?

We know the product code for the green khaki strap is H970.1202.VT. What is the product code for the black strap? What does the code "C09" underneath the black strap represent?

Yes - some people in the US have managed to get hold of one.

I haven't had much luck.

As for the green one - its simply a matter of quoting the product code. It may be easier to get this ordered from an AD rather than the PP Salon.

This is a watch that did not look good to me in photographs, was even worse in person, a real Emperor's new clothes. A green or coloured strap has done nothing to elevate this dismal design.

I personally think it looks really classy like it's not a bright green so much so they call it khaki and not green it goes superbly with a grey suit for example.

I really hope it is possible to buy the blue strap from an AD in the same way as the green (which I now have purchased from an PP AD here in Europe)

Old bump, but wondering what people thought of this blue on black combo.

Looks good. Not sure if this is aftermarket or the 5168 version. Can that fit on the 5164?

5650 has a different pattern but is the same size.

5168 version fits - I have one which I will fit to my 5164 when i get around to it.

I think they have now become almost impossible to source.

I like it. Pretty sure Patek won't sell me one for my 5164. Its all part of their evil plan to get me to add a 5168G... for the strap.

Thats because PP is no longer accepting orders for that strap. No AD is going to be of any help either

pretty sure they will sell you one if you own a green aquanaut. Otherwise PP cant really promise to restore every watch they have ever made. Thats 1/2 of the watch right there and a black strap isnt really a substitution. It seems like a Rolex move in not allowing modifications they dont want, like how you cant order a glide lock clasp for a GMT.

Just ordered one. They took my order.

I'll report back on whether it's accepted by PP.

Baller! I think the green would be much much more though. I wish you hadnít said that now I want a 5168
