What's everyone's thoughts on this one? Appreciate this may be considered a ladies watch and completely in the other direction VS current Aquanaut offerings from ZF and KMF but hear me out:

1) No movement issues because Quartz vs modded Miyota (I've read a few people have had issues with the ZF movement)
2) Really thin!
3) Great medium size
4) Some interesting coloured rubber strap combos (if that's your thing)
5) Patek actually makes a bloody gen Quartz watch! (Blew my mind)

I'm most interested in the black dial. Generally these all come with the diamond bezel, but I found a "rare" example of the black dial, SS bezel (albeit did not have the Swiss Made text on the dial).

All flaws aside, I doubt anyone would notice this on your wrist. And its a decent price point versus some of the other $400+ USD automatic reps that are playing in the same space.

It’s very very good. Not actually a 5067a as it doesn’t have a diamond bezel, but a 5064a. This is a copy of the 2006 models with Swiss made text on the dial and the updated datewheel.

Good to know, Bill! Regardless, I'm going to grab one. Thin, relatively maintenance-free, good price point, and a great everyday size.

I agree it is a great Rep, but we should consider the size. Below is the photo I found on the internet, It is the male version of this watch 5065a "Jumbo" with 38mm (larger than 5064a lady version 35.5mm)
But still a little bit small on male wrist !

Did any of you guys get yours through? Interested to see how they look on the wrist.

No, unfortunately I did not. Hoping someone else picks one up and can post some pics. If they utterly hate the watch I may buy it from them.

I quite like small watches, and I really like this one, but I already have and aquanaut ZF so I think would be stupid to have both hehe

So yes it's modelled after the 5064a. Because I was looking at it and thinking to myself the 5065 has no indice at 3 o'clock, just the date window.

The only difference I can see is the date font and the lume is very yellow on the gen.

Would truly appreciate a wrist shot when it lands. Interested to see the sizing compared to the bigger 'jumbo'.

I just placed a order for mine with the SS bezel. I’ll post picks up when it come in. As well as some QC pics
