I own this watch and I love it. I wouldn't trade it for any other modern chronograph. I, too, changed the strap but went with a PP matte black alligator.

I bought mine recently at a Phillips auction and have a question. The start/stop pusher and reset pusher require very different pressure to engage. The start/stop requires more force and engages with a click. The reset is extremely smooth and a newborn could engage it. Is that typical of the PP5170g or do I need to send it in for repairs? Mechanically, the watch keeps perfect time and the chronograph works perfectly; crisp movement between minutes in subregister, etc.

yeah I think it's normal. I've heard of similar action on some PP chronographs. Don't know why it's like that. Anybody else with PP chronos wanna chime in?

The resistance of the stop/start and reset pushers are quite different on my 5170p.

the start stop vs reset have very different pressure tactile feel is correct
I felt this personally on
5170
5172
5204
5370
5270
also on one of the hondikee 3vs3 (5170, dato and a VC harmony) this action was mentioned as well

That strap looks awesome. I love a simple strap change can transform a watch from dressy to casual.

Thanks, I think the NATO gives it a more fun joyfully look

This watch can be fun with different straps , like a new watch every time you swap

Cheers

Thanks!

My wrist is +/- 17-18 cm.

To compare 3800 next to 5711.

I think the 3800 looks much better.
