My First Patek

Well, after a few months of hunting I was able to attain a grail watch, a 5066 Aquanaut.

I decided to consolidate my collection (mainly Rolex) and thanks to the awesome TRF seller jharris888 / blueline_watch_guru (IG). I was able to put this baby on my wrist. And wow, it feels great and the details are stunning.

Thinking of doing this myself for a 5726 or 5712. The Aquanaut looks great!

Congrats! I own the 5066 in gold and it's a stunner. The dial pattern is just so cool compared to the latest flattened-dials ones imo :)

So good looking. Were you looking at something else while looking at this?

I actually was, I was trying to decide between the Aquanaut, Royal Oak, or Kermit.
