Disadvantages

This watch is stylish, versatile, and reliable. Nonetheless, the Patek Philippe 5120G-001 has also some disadvantages. First, this watch basically has the hour and minute hands and does not have a second hand. This could be a disadvantage for people who prefer having second hand for added functionality. Second, while it has a 30-meter water resistance, this does not mean you can take it 30 meters underwater. Its water resistance only means it is splash resistant. Lastly, the watch, provided its extraordinary beauty and capability, can be pretty expensive.
