    Pledge your love for aquanauts here by posting yours! Will start it off with my 5167a Tiffany on chocolate strap from the R :)

    That looks beautiful! No Aquanaut here but hoping to get into the Patek game again at some point. I sold my 5711 (never wore it) but I'm saving up for something a bit more complicated. But that looks stunning and with a Tiffany dial too!

    I love the pattern of the dial. I also love how the dial picks up the color of whatever band is attached. Simple elegance, for me the best kind. The Aquanaut is also exceptionally slim at only 8.5mm.

    Very nice watch the Aquanaut but I don't like the rubber straps.

    That looks fantastic too. Is it one of the new ones? (I love the orange accents).

    Beautiful watches!

    Anyone else here who prefers the old bracelet design and non-integrated rubber straps to the new ones?

    Yes, I certainly do. I can’t get my head round a watch costing several thousand $/£/€ and it being on rubber.

    Yes - definitely among the more blingy bracelets, as it’s all polished ... but I love it - has a very LEGO / Tetris / Jenga feel to it ... but super comfortable

    Way out of reach for my finances but a cracking watch, I love the clear dial which makes the watch easy to read, good basic timekeeping in a wonderful package. Nice.

    Now where's last night's lottery ticket :D

    Love the Aquanaut! Would sell a few watches today if it meant that I can have a 5167a at retail.
