I disagree, I think the 5164 is a fabulous watch. Then again I have a 5167 so what do I know.

Wow, you must really disagree. I much prefer the 5167 to the 5164 - cleaner.

It's not that I prefer the 5164 over the 5167, however I do think the 5164 is a great watch..

also disagree i love the 5164, and the aquanaut in general, although i prefer the uncomplicated dial of the 5167. I fell in love with the aquanaut after trying it on and have always preferred it over the nautilus (sacrilege i know) which has never done much for me. peepwall[1].gif Who knows maybe its because im a younger guy (pateks target demo for the aquanaut)... any one else feel the same? and willing to admit it?

Also do you guys stick with one AD generally or shop around for best price?

JLC have a much longer history of being a true manufacture (compared to IWC that only recently began making everything in-house) and a reputation for producing high quality movements. They regularly supply movements to two of the big three (AP, VC) and designed the now legendary ultra-thin automatic calibre 2120/2121/2122...

My interest in ultra-thins was renewed recently when I read an article on the ALS Saxonia Thin and also reading this comparative review of the VC Patrimony Contemporaine. I'm still on my quest for a very minimalist dress watch...And have been tempted along the way by the VC Patrimony Traditionelle and AP Jules Audemars Extra Thin (both reviewed here)...Also the Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda 1950 Any thoughts from the WIS? Must confess that the ALS and VC Patrimony Contemporaine are my current running favourites...

You got pretty much universal approval bud. I say you gotta go for it!

And... in regards to the Aquanaut question... I actually really like the Aquanaut. Well, at least the "head" of the watch. I am not really sure I understand the rest of the watch. I think it makes a great second Patek. I have tried it on, and enjoyed it. The one thing that draws me to the Aquanaut are the "user reviews." Everybody who owns one absolutely loves it. And I really think that speaks volumes. Heck, even John Mayer said that it is one of his favorite watches. Then again, everyone who owns a Nautilus or an AP RO also seems to love them. So maybe it is just a lovable sub-genre.

Yep, by owning all three that you mentioned I guess I just fall into that lovable sub-genre. LOL
