    Default Looking for some Aquanaut info!

    So have 0 knowledge about the PP Aquanaut so I just want to ask you guys.
    I am thinking about picking up a ZF Aquanaut 5167 and wanted to know what the thoughts are on them.

    I see multiple makers have the Aquanaut black dial available: (these are links) KMF, ZF, PF

    I've had a few ZF pieces and they were very nicely made so I was thinking ZF would be the one I'd go after, but what is the consensus for 5167 black/gray dial on rubber? Is there a better option out there for me? I am not nit-picky I just want something as close as I can get from the front, I could care less bout the look of the movement.

    Thanks!

    I am also planning to buy a 5167.
    Based from what i read, the best out of the box is ZF. But if you are willing to mod then get the KMF with a Keylog DW mod.

    ZF is considered the best out of the box... much like the ARF for Subs.

    Their case thickness is bang on GEN specs.

    However, they got 1 thing wrong......the lume colour.

    I believed they used C3 lume which is much greener (used on PRE-SWISS MADE dial) while the newer gen is now C1 which is much whiter (uses on SWISS MADE dial).

    Thatís their biggest and only flaw - which is a deal breaker for me.

    For the keylog DW.. i have not seen anyone attempted to do this mod yet. Maybe it is not that big of a deal? (Correct me if im wrong)

    So a relume would be the answer? Does anyone do that anymore?

    From my understanding, the keylog datewheel is swap out, what goes into do that Iím unsure, but itís a direct replacement. I have one on order for the ZF but not even sure if Iím going to use it or not, the watch I have coming - the date is perfectly centered and looks good.

    A relume has been considered. But given the space on the numbers is super tiny, im unsure if its possible.

    Beside - if they can, they probably have a hard time getting it as close to gen. Have a look for comparison.

    Top ZF , bottom GEN.

    Iíve had something similar happen to a rep years ago. Not that dramatic but when I would spin the crown to wind the movement it would spin the rotor. Had to get it serviced.
