Patek Philippe Moonphase

Avatar
Horology_Ancienne
Vintage Patek references up until the 3970/3940 boasted a very rich enamel moonphase with handcrafted accompanying gold stars and moon disc. For reference, slide 2 of this post shows a 2499 moonphase and slide 1 is of a 3970 moonphase. The enamel moonphase of the 2499 is a very rich navy blue that has a wonderful and radiating texture. The blue is engraved and filled with the gold stars and moons so they don’t sit on top of the disc...Story

A few words about the Patek Philippe Calatrava 5296 Limited Edition Hausmann

Avatar
foversta
The Patek Philippe boutique in Rome has quickly become one of the most popular locations on Via Condotti since its opening in 2019. Located on the former site of the Hausmann multi-brand boutique, it is of course managed by the retailer's team. The reception on the ground floor gives access to the lift to the seventh heaven... in fact the first floor, which includes the shop windows, the points of sale and the watchmaker's workshop...Story

Incoming 5088/100P engraved in Platinum --- What's your favorite Rare Handcraft technique...miniature painting, enamel, wood marquetry, or engraving? :-)

Dear Friends, let me (officially) share the joy of the latest addition to my Patek collection, ref. 5088/100P....an in-catalog Rare Handcraft first introduced in 2015, which features a stunning engraved dial (and case, and buckle)! This beauty in a sense also "completes" my collection of Rare Handcraft techniques, since engraving was the only "main" craft I was unforgivably missing until last night....I was glad to receive it to view when I arrived in Italy back in May (I since learnt that Italy only gets ... ...Story

A Patek Philippe Pamphlet from 1939

Avatar
Horology_Ancienne
Present is a pamphlet distributed by Patek Philippe to mark the occasion of their 100th anniversary in 1939! Only 1,500 copies were made with many most likely lost to the battle of age. Our focus here is the translation (a special thank you to @unekual for making this possible) of this text from French to English. Hope you will all enjoy what I found to be a great read. I have owned this document for many years but only recently rediscovered it while organising my shelves...Story

Some thoughts on the vintage Patek Aquanaut.

Avatar
amanico
I always had a soft spot for the Aquanaut, more than for the Nautilus, by the way. The 5060 and the 5066, and the 5065. I don't care about the see through case back, so for me, it would be between the 5060 and the 5065. So the question is why I didn't get one, yet.....Story

Michael Ng and yours truly on a (virtual) GTG in Boccadasse -- spot the 100 differences! :-)

Dear Friends, let me kick off the new year on our forum by having some fun -- here's for you a collage that I have created of my favorite watch on this planet, Patek "Boccadasse" 5177G-010...and the ONLY TWO specimens I have ever seen of it! The one on the left is part of the amazing collection of our dear member Michael Ng, on the right is mine. We saw in the past multiple comparisons of Patek enamel WTs (the 5131 and 5231 series), but this is probably a first for an "out-of-catalog" reference (currently, ... ...Story
