Thread: Another young Patek wearer

  1. #1

    Another young Patek wearer

    Tom Holland sometimes sports a PP Aquanaut while on TV chat shows and I also spotted the Roma and England forward Tammy Abraham with what looks like a PP 5164a on a Youtube video yesterday. It seems that younger guys are going for Patek now - or maybe just the Aquanaut.

    Looks pretty good on him although I've noticed that the rubber strap seems stiff/loose on both his and Tom Holland's wrist leading to it either slipping down or giving a larger gap between strap and wrist.

    Do you mean that the strap can be adjusted? (snigger)

    The pic of Tom Holland wearing it looked to me like it was too big for his wrists even on the shortest setting (it has a deployant doesn't it?).

    The pic above just looks like he needs to have it tighter so it sits lower near the wrist bone. It's a matter of personal taste of course how you wear a watch.

    He seems to be wearing it just above the bone that sticks out on his wrist. Looks correct to me but I wear it lower.

    .

    It has a butterfly clasp with no adjustment. Make sure you don't cut it (the band) too short - else it's a very expensive mistake. But once cut to size it is very comfortable.




    shame I sold it.

    Any young in the spot light person will wear whatever is exclusive and shows success, if PP flooded the market with Aquanauts and the exclusivity dropped then they would disappear from wrists on TV.

    Always blows my mind when you think it’s cost him (and similar wealthy “stars”) a couple of days’ wages. Like me being able to buy the watch for £100 - or whatever.

    I quite like that model but I couldn’t believe when I saw how much they cost!!

    Am I alone in thinking the world of social media and influencers has turned everything a bit 80ís in terms of conspicuous consumption and brandís on everything?
    Next itíll be red braces, pony tails and shoulder pads all round. Letís face it we all know footballers and actors earn a massive amount of money, yet they seem to want to shove it in peoples faces at every opportunity, whilst professing how Ďrealí they are. Seems a bit shallow imho

    I bought my 5167 3 years ago, it's been in my sock drawer ever since - too light. Still waiting for my 5164 to come up - maybe now Tammy got his, I'll be next ...

    Iím sure most of them wear it because all these so called influencers on Instagram wear it. Very few must be genuine watch fans/collectors

    The whole influencer culture is an insanity. I do hope pinstripe, red braces, contrast collar shirts and the gaudy haute couture of the 80ís comes back, I was wearing a double breasted suit today 🤣.

    Like Prince Charles said every now and again what I wear comes back into fashion 🙌🏻
