Thoughts on the 5168G-001

Simple question: Any love for this aquanaut (talking about the blue not the green) or in that price range something else should/could be considered?

Thanks for your feedbacks.

Yes I love it. Gorgeous dial. For me the 5164/A must be considered.

5168G-001 is a beautiful watch, I prefer it to the 5168G-010.

I am still not sure how durable the white gold bezel is and I'm waiting my friend Aquaman to give me feed back on it.

The 5168 collects scratches like any other PM watch, but it's not terrible. I wear mine regularly and they both still look fantastic. Bracelets end up taking the brunt of an active lifestyle and that is alleviated by the rubber strap. Except for the clasp, that is completely scratched to hell on mine

Does it seem like a 40K watch? Not to me but I think it looks great.

One of the most beautiful Patek’s imo. I prefer it over the 64a, which I find a bit too thick compared to the 68. But many people feel the 68a wears too flat...

Recently tried the green 68a, and blue is definitely nicer.

The 5168G is really nice...

That blue dial really shines. I've had one on, and I would say, even though it is 42mm, it wears really well, even if you don't have a large wrist.

5168 over 5164 for me. But a steel 5167 over all of them as it’s a sports watch.
