Picked this up yesterday. Thing is awesome!
Patek Nautilus? Nice. Is it the open or closed caseback?
5167 Aquanaut w/sapphire caseback. The closed ones are actually quartz. I'm not into the quartz ones at all.
Is the only difference between the Aquanaut and the Nautilus the numerals on the dial? I'm not an expert on the Patek models.
You are THE MAN!
They are quite a bit different. The Aquanaut was based on the Nautilus design. PP makes lots more complications on the Nautilus.

Congrats on the men's jewelry!!!
Haterz gonna hate.
What is the difference between quartz and sapphire? I've been looking at watches recently and noticed that many of them are one or the other. Even seen some with japanese quartz and swiss quartz/sapphire I think.
Two entirely different things.
"Quartz" in this context refers to a movement type, where the timekeeping is regulated by the oscillations of a quartz crystal. The movement is (typically) powered by a battery. This is different from a mechanically-regulated movement, which uses the periodic motion of a spring for regulation and is powered by stored mechanical energy (either from manually winding, or from the "automatic" motion of a rotor as you move your arm around). There are hybrid movements which combine elements of both, but that's the basic idea.
"Sapphire" in the watch context refers to the material that the watch crystal is constructed from. They're commonly either acrylic, mineral (basically regular glass), or sapphire.
Thanks. Sorry I meant to put "and" between the two.
Is one generally better/more accurate than the other?
