Much like with the anniversary release of the Patek Philippe Nautilus replica watch, two editions …
The Patek Philippe Aquanaut Travel Time ref. 5164/1A-001 replica watch is for sure one of our favorite Aquanauts and one that is definitely worth reviewing hands-on. The Aquanaut Travel Time ref. 5164 is available in stainless steel or in 18K rose gold —launched earlier this year and reviewed by us here.The Patek ref. 5164 is fitted with a very similar movement as the Patek Philippe Nautilus ref. 5990 —we reviewed here—, but without the 60-minute chronograph complication. Regardless, this model in the Aquanaut collection, brings the best from Patek Philippe to the table.
While maintaining the look of the Aquanaut line, the dial features a dual time zone indicating ‘local’ and ‘home’ time with day/night apertures —white for the day and dark blue for the night— at 3 and 9 o’clock, a date indicator for the local time at 6 o’clock and an second time zone hand for the ‘local’ travel time.
The mens fake Patek Philippe Aquanaut ref. 5164A-001 is fitted with a stainless steel case measuring 40.8 mm in diameter —0.8 mm larger than the ref. 5167 we featured here— with highly polished and satin-brushed finished areas and a slightly rounded octagonal shape. The ref. 5164 features the same type of embossed black dial —ruthenium looking with a brownish hue— as the ref. 5167 with white gold applied Arabic numerals and a white minute track. Since its launch, the dial on the Aquanaut was meant to replicate the attractive texture of its tropical the strap.
The lower one is skeletonized, and the upper one matches the style of the minute hand. This watch is fitted with a screw-down crown and is water resistant to a 120 meters, making it a perfect companion for the pool, as you travel around Bali or Moorea.
The skeleton hand displays home time while the solid hour hand indicates local time. At home, where both times are identical, the two hands are superposed. The properly display a second time zone, the Swiss fake Patek Philippe Aquanaut Travel Time ref. 5164A-001 has two hour hands on the same axis.
