The Patek Philippe Sports collection is a highly popular one. In recent years, we have seen how prices have increased dramatically in the used market – a testament to the strong demand. The Swiss made fake Patek Philippe Aquanaut “Jumbo” Reference 5186G, launched in 2019, is another timepiece that is greatly sought-after like many of its brethren.
The latest iteration of the Aquanaut “Jumbo” follows hotly on the heels of the 2017 edition. The original variant – which is notably 2.2mm larger than the popular Reference 5167 – was specially produced to commemorate the collection’s 20th anniversary. The 2017 timepiece was fitted with a brilliant blue dial, but this year Patek Philippe had went a step further by introducing an olive green variant instead. The combination, in our opinion, works rather beautifully. The shade of green is rather mellow, and the matte finishing interestingly provides an intriguing (although unintentional) military touch to the watch.
Powering the Aquanaut is the 213-part, 29-jewel Calibre 324 S C. The self-winding movement has a minimum power reserve of approximately 35 hours, and it incorporates innovations such as the brand’s proprietary Gyromax balance and Spiromax balance spring. The finishing is as per Patek Philippe’s high standards.
The watch retails at S$57,700, and we feel that it is a perfect replica Patek Philippe watch that is a little unusual from the crowd with its green theme. We certainly like how this one turns out.
