5167 Vs 5164

Hello
Im planning to jump in the Patek’s world. First I wanted the 67, its simole and beautiful. But now I have doubts 64 is gorgeous and love its complications.

I think the 5164 is the perfect travel watch.

If you’re willing to spend more, I’d go 5164. And eventually add a 5711 (/1a or /1r) and you are set.

5164. Its a great travel watch and a great everyday watch as i wear mine way more often with the 2nd time zone hidden. IMO the dial is more interesting with the date dial vs the 67.

I was just farting around in my photo studio when I saw this thread.


my choice...



I'd consider thickness. I used to own the 5167 but it was far to thin for me - not what I envision for a "sports watch". The 5164 is a good bit thicker and has more of a sporty masculine feel - while the 5167a was thinner than some of my dress watches.

You really can’t lose. If funds permit I would get the 5164

5164 easier to acquire I would think.

I have a 5167r but I voted 5164 because i think in steel at least its a nicer watch.
but my 67r came to me used and at a good price.

tbh I love them both for different reasons.

5164 if you can pony up the premium. It's a lot of money for a complication you might not use. Even then, it has a more interesting dial, more symmetrical case and better proportions IMO.

A few years ago, the same poll had nearly a tie. I love when this happens with a sizable number of votes. It shows that these watches are great and very coveted.

https://www.rolexforums.com/poll.php...ts&pollid=2921

I like both references almost equally, maybe with a very slim preference for the 5164.

I'm on the fence between this, 5712 and 116500. Flipped the 5711, too boring.

5164 is the best but 5167 is the only one that’ll be in my budget ��

I’d get either on in RG instead of SS. I voted for the 5164 because it’s more useful for traveling.

Both are great. I’d rather take the 5167 and add a Reverso or GMT.

Love the 5164, it is a big premium over the 67 but very worth it.

I didn’t even think about the 5167A, went straight to the 5164A. I had to decide between 5712/1a and 5164A at the time though.

Agree with the boring point and does apply for 5167
I also have both 116500 and beleive me daytona C is a tremendous watch !
5164 + 116500 will suit perfectly well

Agree with this. Even if you will never use the second time zone function I think the 5164 is more interesting visually and horologically.
