    Share your story of how you got a Patek Aquanaut via AD

    The 5167A is growing on me, and would like to leverage my relationship with an AD to get myself one. I know it’s hard, and there are huge lists, but still, would like to know how others acquired one without paying a huge premium. Thanks in advance!!

    Each dealer makes their own rules.

    If you have a relationship with an AD, why dont you ask them?

    No one can assist you in any way, either you have the connection or you dont- and even if you have a connection it may not mean much...

    If you think your first Patek Philippe will be a stainless steel and bought through an AD at list price then i am sorry to shatter your dream.
    it is highly unlikely that that will happen to you.
    the only stainless steel exception is probably the 5212. but for the nautilus and aquanaut, highly unlikely

    Depends on the dealer. Spend 250K on other stuff and maybe.

    I asked my bank agent to look for it worldwide for me in 2015. I told them wherever they can find one I will but a ticket to get it back even it is in the South Pole. They found one in Tokyo for me but the AD only kept 48 hours for me. I purchased a flight ticket and fly to Tokyo the next day to acquire it and came back the same day.
    At the original price without any extra request or cost. I was lucky!

    Do post some more pics of your Aquanaut. I’ve always liked and wanted one.

    Why?? To me It looks like a good year tire watch and if not for the PP on the dial no one could ever possibly think that is a luxury watch.

    It has no complications, no materials, simplest of dials that just screams wannabe to me.

    But to each their own but this aint a 20k watch let alone 40k or more in the grey market....
