At 41mm, some of you might consider the luxury fake Patek Philippe 5172G big, and you would prefer a more svelte vintage model. But, considering the service complexities and auction prices of today, why complain? You’re going to wait for your Swiss made replica Patek Philippe 5172G, but unlike the Nautilus, you can actually order one.
And the understated elegance of the high quality fake Patek Philippe‘s white gold case is worth it. It might be over 40mm, but the 11.45mm case thickness and short, striated lugs make it a comfortable fit. And therein lies the crux of any precious-metal manually wound Patek talisman. Wear it, for God’s sake, and push the intricately detailed Tasti Tondi-style pushers. The vertically off-center registers want to relay information to you, just as the central chronograph needle hands want to time something of importance.
Believe me, if best 1:1 replica watches had a soul (and they do), they would not want to remain locked in a safe. I once had the joy of reviewing a scratched-up Aquanaut, and it felt alive. At dusk, each white gold lume-filled numeral of the AAA fake Patek Philippe 5172G will glow to remind you of the functional beauty only a €71,800 Patek Philippe can bring.
Obviously, any Swiss movement fake Patek Philippe is a lot more than a pretty face, powered by the caliber CH 29-535 PS. As the first in-house manually wound chronograph movement from Patek, the Geneva Seal is there for a reason. The movement was introduced in the cheap copy Patek Philippe ref. 5710 about 12 years ago, and ironically, this is rather good value compared to the ubiquitous Nautilus, as observed in RJ’s story here.
