Today, we'll be going over a Patek Philippe Aquanaut with a brown dial, stainless steel case diamond bezel matching brown strap and stainless steel buckle clasp reference number 5067A-023 Now this is a discontinued model. This is no longer in production and it's also a quartz style movement. What does that mean? A quartz style movement originated from the brand Seiko in which a battery essentially powers the entire movement and actually keeps it much more accurate than that of what you would find of a mechanical style movement, but more of that a little bit later. First, we'll be going over the case, the dial, the bezel, the crown functions, as well as the strap. And I'll be giving you my thoughts as to how it wears and the overall experience with this watch. Now, taking a look at the case here, we have I believe 35.6 millimeter. Yes, 35.6 millimeter diameter from the 10 to 4:00 or 2 to 8:00 distance. All right. Relatively small. All right. Has a very, very nice form factor, wafer thin actually. And it has a very excellent water resistance down to 120 meters or 400 feet below sea level. Now that's very excellent given Patek Philippe's Aquanaut lying here. Okay. And taking a look at the overall finishing of this watch we have a high polish on the front of the lugs as you can see. The front of the case is mostly hidden by this large bezel. This side has a very nice satin brush finish as you can see there as I move it within a light box. And same with the side, with the crown guards three o'clock there's a very high polish on the very tops of those high... on the very tops of those crown guards there, as well as, a very nice effective finish a nice high polish on that crown itself. Now, take a look at the bezel here, we also have a very high polish along the bevels there. So you can see a very good separation there between the bezel and the rest of the case if you look at it from a sort of diagonal side profile. All right. And also on the front we also have diamonds embedded in the front all amounting to about an entire karat of diamonds. All regularly placed. Placed so precariously that they all have the correct orientation, same height and same size all the way around the entire bezel. All right. See if I can zoom in there so you can see all the details within those diamonds. All right. And so it's really hard to get the angle just right on the lighting here, but you can see that it's all regularly set, regularly placed. All right. And also, with the way that it leads into the dial is actually very eloquent here even though there's no actual words being spoken. So maybe eloquent is not the right word. It has a very elegant look regardless. And we have the typical aquanaut sort of dial with that sort of world patterning almost like a globe with the latitude and longitude lines heading left to right and top to bottom. A brown colored dial as you would, you know typically see on a sort of aquanaut type of watch of this caliber. And taking a look at the hour marks the way all this is laid out. We also have painted on like a minute and second track as well. Bolded indexes, index marks rather for those hours and a little tiny raised bump actually very hard to see there, but it's a very tiny raised bump on each of those bolded index marks. So you can actually see that there's texture in those hour marks as well. Now we can take a look and see if there's any luminescence on this. All right. Turn off the lights. We can see that there are applied luminescence upon those thick hour marks as well as on the minute and the hour hand. All right. So very easy to see with low light situations. And underwater should you take this to about a hundred meters below sea level. Now also looking at the overall texture, we have this very nice texture that really gives it this sort of very refined air about it. It's not, you know, there's no extra... all the textures here are very precisely placed rather. So it's not like very flowy, not too immensely organic, but just enough that actually appeals very well with all of these diamonds and the overall look as well. Now, taking a look at how this all works. If you've noticed the secondhand actually ticks once a second, and that is a good telltale sign that this is very most likely a quartz watch. All right. So unwinding the crown here to the first position, nothing happens. All right. There's no feedback. There's no feel. There's no sound. As I wind it back and forth at the first position. All right. Now let me move this metal hand out of the way for a second. We can move it to the second position here and we can then, adjust the date, advancing it by about a half or between a quarter and a half turn to advance the date by one. So keep that in mind when you are shopping around for this sort of watch that if you find yourself near the end of the month, say you have a 30 day month like a September, for example, you'll have to keep that in mind when you are advancing the date you'll have to move it forward a little bit about a full half term before you finally get to the first of the next month. All right. Now, pulling the crown out to a final position. It actually stops that seconds hand and actually also disengages the connections to the battery held within. So if you need to set this down for an extended period of time you can just pull the crown all the way out keep it nice in an airtight drawer or airtight box or the box that it comes in. And you can then place the crown all the way back in after having set the time appropriately to get that engaged once more. And be sure to wind that crown nice and tightly against the case to ensure that 120 meters of water resistance. Now, what makes all this work is the caliber E23-250 SC. It is a quartz style movement with I believe 80 parts total and eight jewels. So it's kind of small in terms of the movement and, you know, rightfully so it is wafer thin and also with a quartz style movement it's much easier to create, much easier to deal with in terms of even its functionality and its maintenance. So if anything, you'll only really need to, you know take it to an authorized dealer or one of us and also just simply replace the battery once the battery runs out, no issue there. No need to wind the watch either. So this is as automatic as you can possibly get. All right. And when we're taking a look at the rest of this we have this nice brown strap that sort of echoes that sort of textured patterning from that dial just sort of echoing outward, starting directly from the lugs all the way down with this very nice pattern. And it's also very, very easy to bend, very pliable, very, very useful on the wrist. Now, taking a look at the clasp here we have a symmetrical stainless steel clasp with the Patek Philippe logo on there. It has a double button deployment system. And as you saw earlier it's the symmetrical double deployment system with the Patek Philippe Geneve engraving on that stainless steel clasp there. All right. Now, for me this is actually really tough to get onto the wrist. So I don't know that I want to chance it, but taking a look at it on the wrist sort of, let me zoom out here. Okay. So on my wrist, I'm at 7 inches or yeah, just about 7 inches. So on a wrist smaller than mine, this will fit perfectly. You would get plenty of bracelet or plenty of strap rather. All right. Going all the way around. Okay. And actually let me close this for a better view of what it would look like on the wrist. Okay. So on the wrist, it would look like this with a very good ratio of strap to case. And also you'd have a very clear view of that dial. Now, while you do have this very machined look very precise look, you have the slightly organic touch within these bended or sort of art lines within the dial. All of that sort of combining it with that very elegant look of those diamonds makes this a very, very unique, very interesting time piece as well because this is not made for, you know fiddling around with, if anything you'll need to set the date. And as I showed you earlier, that's very easy to do. All right. And with all these, I believe there's 46 diamonds total makes it an entire karat worth of diamonds on here. This is a very excellent accessory. Very excellent look because you can see these diamonds shining just from just about any angle, you know regardless of the light source here. All right. So it makes it a very unique wear, very beautiful and excellent accessory. Now, would you want to make this an accessory? Well, you have that option because it does not require all that much maintenance especially if there's no need to wind it. So you can just wear it and not worry about it. You can place it within a drawer for about a week. Well, I would recommend, you know simply just pulling the crown all the way out, you know so you don't waste the battery there, but you know certainly keep it plugged in every now and then to ensure that the movement continues to work functionally and continues to function appropriately. All right. So when it comes down to the overall aesthetics, the overall wear, it's extremely light it's hard to say that there's real, any real difference in weight when you're moving it around the wrist because, you know, moving it like this I'm not feeling any weight being thrown around. So it's incredibly light. You won't really notice this on your wrist. And when it comes to the sort of like counterweight with this strap and the stainless steel buckle there working against the case, well, it works very effectively. You can barely feel, you know any sort of weight being thrown around again. And so the center of gravity right in the center of the wearing experience. All right. Very light, very thin. And so this will fit very nicely under any suit cuff, anybody's suit cuff, really. And with this very neutral tone to it brown sort of works with just about anything. You can wear anything with this watch. If you want to wear a light dress you can wear this to have it stand out against that. If you have a dark dress, this will sort of blend in and really bring out those diamonds as well. So, you know, taking a look at this overall it's very unique, but very, very elegant sort of timepiece. All right. So, you know, I'd like to know your thoughts on this as to, you know, what you think would you pick up something like this, you know, as an accessory? Or would you actually use it for your... an everyday wear sort of watch just to really flex on other people? I think this would be an excellent choice.
