Sick of waiting for that Patek?

Sick of waiting for that Patek?

You don’t need to sell us on Patek’s 5711/1A. It’s the Nautilus. In fact, you might go so far as to say it’s the steel sports watch. The case, the dial — that bracelet. Heck, even the date. It all works. The only bad thing about it? Unless you’re seriously connected, you can’t just walk into your local AD, drop the $32,300 AUD and walk out with it on your wrist. You need to wait. And, I think we can all agree that waiting sucks. So don’t. Here are five excellent options to scratch that itch a whole lot quicker.

Would love to own a Nautilus; but, no way in hell I would ever pay the price. Is stupid. Same goes for the mentioned GP watches.
