Thanks, enjoyed the video. Always a pleasure seeing your productions.

The Pepsi is punching way way above its league $ for $.

Personally I donít see this as a reasonable comparison, but if you put the price tags and brands aside, the Pepsi has the edge for me.

Indeed, in pics you can't capture the fine details but in real life esp with the sun shining to bring out every shade and subtlety you can see it is in a different league in refinement to any Rolex.

5164 is as durable as any rolex watch. 5164 /5167 can be easily as 1 and only watch for me. Wear mine almost everyday and dont even let the power reserve stop in almost 2 years.

Patek always a special purchase and this is one of their recent best pieces.
Plenty of Rolex GMT out there if you ever decide you want one later for a ďbeaterĒ traveller.

Thanks .. Means a lot man!

Yeah the Patek definitely comes with a hefty price tag.. but for a unexplained reason the moment you have it on (as with other Patekís) everything suddenly makes sense and life becomes complete

Couldnít agree more with that Patek reference!

The same way that the moment you put your Rolex on you immediately feel ready for whatever the world throws at you, itís like having a loyal, dedicated and unconditional companion on your wrist.

Look at us getting all emotional here...

P.S : big fan of your channel, congratulations and well done! very useful to showcase the watches in 4K to my wife to convince and educate her on the next purchase...or not!

I have both 5164 and BLNR. I have worn both as daily watches and traveled with both internationally. I have to say I would choose the Patek all day long. If money were no object, Patek is the choice. It's extremely comfortable, the travel time function and movement is much better IMHO, it's stealthy (99.9% of people have no idea that it's an expensive watch) and very classy. Walk into a Rolex shop and the sales guy probably has never seen one. Patek is in different league. But of course it's a lot more money. But I bet you will never sell your 5164 if you get one.

Thank you for the "insider" feedback, nothing beats firsthand experience.

5164, not even close. Have been wearing it as a daily beater for 4 years, no problems.

Also wears much smaller than the Rolex due to thinness.
