Sorry, I find it a rather less attractive variation of the Nautilus. I tried one on and found it rather unimpressive. Yes, there is a market for it, as I believe its their least expensive piece. However, its popularity due to being the most "Affordable" PP wouldn't be a selling point. My father asked me what I thought of it, because his AD offered him one at a discount. My advice was wait and save a bit more and get a Nautilus or some other model. Just my 2 cents. I like Patek a lot, but not that model. Wishing you luck with whatever you decide.
thanks Dino, always appreciate your thoughts. Well, I have yet to see it in person but been lusting over this model for a few years now. Nautilus is my true Grail but I'm going to aim towards Aquanaut and make my decision. I'm glad I still have some time to finalize my choice. I also think that PP keeps its value a bit better vs AP, no?
