If you like to know the price, simply click on the links in the description below. We greatly appreciate if you purchase your next watch from us at jaztime.com. So we'll be taking a look at the Patek Philippe 5167/1A that means this one is the Aquanaut but on a steel bracelet. This one with the full bracelet here, again the reference number 5167/1A if you want to include the dash 0 0 1, that's part of it as well. So that basically means this is a full stainless steel Patek Philippe Aquanaut with the black dial, as they call it, the black dial with the steel bracelet. I'll be going over all the aspects of this watch the case, bezel, dial, the crown functions, as well as the movement and the bracelet. And I'll be giving you my thoughts on these throughout this video. So starting off with the case we have the 40.8 millimeter case sets from the two to eight o'clock position. Same as what you'd get from the 10 to four o'clock position. Generally that diagonal same distance same 40.8 millimeters. It's 8.1 millimeters thick meaning it's more thin than it is thick. It'll slide directly under a suit cuff incredibly nicely. Now this one is obviously, well, maybe not so obviously but it is widely considered at least colloquially as sort of like an introductory watch into the Patek Philippe line. And I tend to believe what be believe other people when I hear that, because if you do take a loop and you look at the all the very tiny details of this watch, you'll notice that there are some slight imperfections but don't let that deter you because this is, even though sort of like an imperfect watch it's still perfect and quite charming in its own, right? So we'll, let's get into that. If we take a look here, we have a full stainless steel case satin brush finish across the sides here and with that nice interesting high polished bevel leading into the tapering down of the lugs also a high polish on the very front sort of echoing outward from the bezel itself the bezel being the rounded octagonal bezel. I, it looks more like a 12 sided bezel to me but I could be wrong on that because I do see large sides with little corners here and there. There's also a satin brush finishing across the front of the bezel, makes it very, very unique in its design here very much fitting in with the Patek Philippe, the sports lines at least. Now the dial itself nothing too new or different from the Aquanaut line. It has sort of like the longitudinal and latitude lines there sort of evoking that sense of you know, traveling across the world or just, you know keeping track of time across the world. And that's also given with that sort of like, well what they call the black and boss style but something that they don't mention is that it does have sort of like a smokey look to it. It has like a sort of like a grayish, sort of like a mid tone gray toward the center of the dial and becomes darker toward the edges. And that actually gives you the higher contrast for the index marks and the sort of applied index marks at the very edge of the dial. You also have Arabic numerals, which altogether actually work very nicely with the luminescence here. The hour and minute hands actually clipping my highlights. They're the brightest part there. So you'll be able to actually keep track of the luminescence and the time in any lighting situation very, very easily actually. So, and it's actually quite long lasting. I tested it myself. It lasts for quite a long time, honestly. Okay. The hand for the seconds, Lance style, not loomed doesn't really need to be Patek Philippe don't really put too much emphasis on seconds because let's, let's face it when someone asks you what time it is you give them the hour and the minute but not so much the seconds because the seconds are constantly changing and basically what matters is what the time is now, not what the time specifically is going to be in one second. So very interestingly and quite actually thoughtful from Patek Philippe themselves. So the hands themselves, the hour, and minute hands 18 carat white gold, the rest of this all, you know, the the typical white gold applied Arabic numerals with the luminescence on them. There's also a date window at the three o'clock position sort of right behind that minute hand you can see there black text on a white background makes it very easy to see in any lighting situation. The best sense of contrast is always with white background, black text. All right. Now taking a look here at the crown functions simply unwind the crown at the three o'clock position. This allows you to wind the launch at the base position so if you're at a dead stop, about 20 or 30 full winds gets you to the full power reserve. Pull the crown out to the next position and there we go. You can advance the date by one. It's about a half turn to advance the date so it feels like you'll be turning it for quite a bit before the date does actually actuate and switch over to the next. So there you won't have any, you know accidental overshooting of the date if you need to quick set it should you so desire or, you know actually need it. Going through the entire month here. It takes a while. All right, pull the crown out to the final position. The seconds hand does not stop, it just keeps going but if you are familiar with Patek Philippe watches you can actually sort of apply a tiny bit of pressure backwards on that minute hand, rotating that crown clockwise just slightly. Placing just enough pressure, you can actually stop that second's hand right where it is. And in some cases actually push it backward a little bit depending on how much pressure you you place on there. All right, so if you are experienced in the world of the 324 movement from Patek Philippe, this is no different. You can just set the time nicely and precisely doing so to, you know, once you are ready, just simply press that crown in and screw it back tightly against the case ensures water resistance down to 120 meters so definitely a good waterproof watch from Patek Philippe. It keeps it water ceiling much better than most other luxury watches that do have the same sort of form factor of also being doubling as a dress watch. Now, as I mentioned earlier, the movement is the 324 SC, basically sort of like the bread and butter of Patek Philippe watches here. Let me pull, pull up my notes here. Gives you the option for the date, the sweep seconds, that center mounted seconds hand with the Lance style on there. You also have a diameter of 27 millimeters thing is if only 33.3 millimeters, 217 total parts, six of them being bridges and 29 of them being jewels. The power reserve for this between 35 and 45 hours, depending on the, you know obvious differences in workmanship, because you know this is sort of like the roll Royce of luxury watches. They sort of have this, you know, well, they, don't sort of they are all handmade and hand finished so you do have slight variations within that main spring barrel. The winding rotor also quite visible with that 21 carat yellow gold with the Patek Philippe that sort of Calatrava cross on there gives it a very unique look as well, nothing too new from the 324 but if you've never seen one before, this one is definitely one for the collection. Beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour or four Hertz so you do have that good sense of precision when you need to measure the seconds when you are actually using that seconds hand. The balance spring, Gyromax with a Spiromax or sort of a what they what's basically a, a Silicon balance spring so that basically means that it's so anti magnetic it may as well just be a magnetic. And it also keeps track of time even if you take a few bumps here and there no effect, no effect on the time keeping ability of the movement. Now taking a look here, you can also see that this does have the stainless steel bracelet something incredibly rare and actually the more common version of this watch is the 5167A, not the 1A, but the 5167A which is that with the black strap, the black rubber strap with obviously the double deployment. But here you have the stainless steel bracelet, sort of like the inverse of the Rolex Oyster bracelet feels very comfortable when you roll it between your fingers and the spacing among the links basically allows your wrist to breathe very easily and very, very freely throughout the day. Satin brush finish down the center, intermediate links high polished along the outer edges of the links. You also have the double deployment clasp here so just simply press the two sides to open it. It basically won't actually pull open you actually have to press in both sides to deploy it. And it's actually not easy to just break off your wrist so you do have that added sense of security there all stainless steel in its construction. Again, now trying this on my wrist, as I showed earlier it actually fits quite nicely on my 7 inch wrist. Granted, it's a little bit big for me I prefer, you know, 36 millimeter and you know, like sort of like the, the higher end of the mid-size watches, but that's me. If your wrist is bigger than seven inches, maybe seven and a half or eight inches, they'll still fit you quite well. Plenty of spacing underneath the lugs for me not an issue though, because if you do have a larger wrist it will sit very nicely and it will actually still maintain that good sense of risk presence that nice large sort of wider but still flat, sort of form factor on the wrist. So again, tiny bit of space under the lugs, but not an issue because the breathability of the bracelet does make it so that I can wear this all day every day should I so desire. And of course the full bracelet means there's plenty of links to go around. The pin and sleeve system here still in use, but you know, it hasn't failed and it will never fail because, you know, Patek Philippe, they're all about that sense of precision there. And even though, you know this watch is probably the epitome of the lack of precision from Patek Philippe. Again, there are other videos out there that show the tiny imperfections of, you know this sort of model line, but, you know, even despite all of that, this is still an excellent entry level watch into the Patek Philippe world. The retail pricing for this one around 26,000 USD, at least as of the making of this video.
