I know what it feels to go for another hunt even when you just finished getting a kill. Your two watches are the most sought after at the moment and together make variety and class. Iíd keep them and continue working on finding that 5164 at MSRP! That would be the biggest catch. Good luck.

I wouldn't do it for a 5164A but I would do it for a 5164R. Apparently 5164R is not that difficulty to obtain.

The BLRO is a lot more durable for every day beater. The travel time, just like my nautilus I find it so easy to scratch.

My 5167 is fairly minty after a year as my daily (dont do anything daft with it mind)

I would

Sounds like a great set up
Two pateks, one for nice, one more wearer, still with travel time complication box ticked

And keeping the daytona (obviously) makes sense

Would love to try on a 5164R - never actually seen one. Just feel not the best for travel as blingy but maybe Iím wrong!

On another note been offered 5712 for what amounts to my 5711 and BLRO combo going out the door

I don't own a 5164R but I have seen it few times, it is very beautiful and quite understated. It is easily obtainable too

I prefer the 5712A compared to 5711A, it is a perfect daily and very understated.

I would clearly do the trade. The 5164 ease of wear and ease of travel function makes it a much better travel companion than the BLRO.
I own both a 5164 and BLRO but if I had to keep 1 it would be the 5164.
The 5167 is a no brainer to move in this transaction.
For sure keep the 5711 ,though a 5711 for 5712 is something to consider. Ive done that as well :)

I'd seriously think about doing this.

I also do not need or want travel time/GMT pieces so I would definitely keep the 5167. The Pepsi is too colorful along with weak shades for my taste so I would not miss one if I sold it.
