Hands on With Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5066A- 001

Posted on

Hands on with the Patek Philippe Aquanaut reference 5066A- 001, The Aquanaut watch was launched in 1997 and in 2007 the collection celebrated 10 years of existence with the creation of a new model available in two sizes 38mm and 40mm the updated 5165 was released.  This model boasted a “tropical strap” featuring a fold over clasp guaranteed utmost security on the wrist.  The changes on the profile and dial slightly modified to underline the dynamic and technical spirit of the watch (Patek Philippe Quote). The Aquanaut is a blend of brushed and polished steel very slim not too bulky in anyway on a rubber strap for the rugged look.

Back to my Aquanaut I have 5066A is the discontinued version wears well as a casual watch from Patek Philippe a lot of their models are very nice but not the casual look or feel at all. The Aquanaut definitely is a fantastic everyday watch not every day price thou. The movement is Mechanical self winding with date Cal 330. 30 jewels The Arabic numbers on the dial, screw down crown, watch is water resistant to 60 metres so good enough for a divers watch, but the newer version is 120 metres water resistant.

I got to say the movement is stunning through the caseback, Patek Philippe watches are a serious piece of kit just out of reach for most people.  Patek Philippe have a long standing history of watch making dating back years so great heritage owning one of their range.  The aquanaut is definitely one to wear and love everyday and is at the bottom end of the Patek Philippe secondhand market for a sporty look as some of their range run into millions.
Patek have some of the most expensive watches that ever went under the hammer, $24,000,000 dollars is current record for the Henry graves super complication that has been up again recently for sale but did not sell.

Breitling Crosswind A13355 Stainless Steel Chronograph

Posted on

Here we have the Breitling Crosswind reference A13355 polished stainless steel is slowing becoming a classic watch design, I have owned a fair few over the years and they are not a small piece by any means, it measures 43mm in size with chronograph function with date window at 3 o clock.

The stunning white dial with raised roman numerals and raised Breitling logo also with a tachymeter around the inner bezel ring for timing distance to speed.  The rotating bezel just has the minute markers for diving and is water resistant to 100m although the primary function of the watch is designed for pilots. The sapphire crystal has a anti glare coating on both sides for zero sun reflecting with viewing dial while when flying at high altitudes.

This model comes in a few variants gold and steel and solid gold and was discontinued around 2005 for chronomat evolution which very similar but a few minor changes. A great value piece on the secondhand market for you buck in my opinion!

The Omega Planet Ocean XL Ceramic 232.30.46.21.01.001

The Omega Planet Ocean XL Ceramic 232.30.46.21.01.001

As the title says Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean XL Ceramic Bezel 45.5mm in stainless steel, a great big feeling timepiece much nicer to the predecessor non ceramic version with the bonus of a see through caseback with a few other tweaks.  This houses a cal 8500 co axial movement which looks a stunner through the sapphire crystal and is water resistant to 600m so it is definitely a true divers watch.

The sapphire glass has anti reflection coating which is nice to stop the glare of the sun but a pain when you scratch the coating, the rotating ceramic bezel is very nice finish, as all the watch companies have gone down the ceramic bezel route looks beautiful and hard wearing to boot.

The watch has the date function at 3pm and they do this model in a few different models and great everyday watch not to expensive either and very popular heavy watch on the wrist with the bonus of a good second hand market value. The dial is very nice with the big massive hands with plenty of luminova that glow very bright in the dark. A great piece that everyone should have or try if you are watch fanatic.
