Some thoughts on the Patek Philippe 5105P.

Avatar
amanico
This watch was issued in a limited edition of 100 pieces, in 2006 to celebrate the opening of the Patek Philippe Salon in Geneva. It is one of these wonderful rectangular cases from Patek, along with the 5100 and the 5500 ( also called Pagoda ). Deliciously cambered, the platinum case is something to see in real life to fully appreciate it. The proportions are perfect in my opinion, for a watch of this kind: 54 mm long, 25 mm large...Story

Patek Philippe World Time Chronograph 5930P Review

Patek Philippe World Time Chronograph 5930P Review When we travel, we are usually concerned with the time where we are. If we need to stay in touch with other parts of the globe, a GMT or World Time complication is handy. Putting those two together is not difficult. But if we also want know how long it's been since we parked the car, then a chronograph would be handy...Story

Patek Philippe Watches and Wonders 2022. 5230P / 5231G / 5930P. A " new " wave of World Timers.

Evolutions rather than pure novelties, this year, for the Patek World Timers. Indeed, there are no new references in this kind of complications, but long awaited dial and metal variations for at least two references, the 5230, which comes with a platinum case, and the 5231 which is now offered in white gold. The third reference is the 5930 which receives a platinum case. I couldn't take any pictures at the Patek Booth, so we will do with the official photos to discover them...Story

Ref. 5950A-001

Introduced in 2010, the CHR 27-525 PS movement in this reference is a marvel of engineering being only 5.25 mm in height. This is all the more impressive considering it incorporates spilt seconds functionality. On top of this, it is a monopusher design with the pusher coaxial with the crown. Patek Philippe’s manual winding chronographs have always been special but this one dials it up to an eleven and to my mind, is one of the most beautiful chronographs made from any manufacturer...Story

The incredibly rare titanium Pateks: Only 12 ever produced? [Answer updated on May 5, 2022: They are now 13! :-)]

If Patek limited editions are reasonably rare, and unique versions produced for special collectors are (in modern times) even more exceptional, titanium pieces appear to be among the most exclusive and prestigious of the entire Patek production. So for some reason my friends, I got very curious about this topic during the past couple of days, and made my small "research" on the web. Here's the stunning result: It appears that only *12* (twelve!) titanium Patek wristwatches are known to have ever existed. .....Story

And still counting! I don't have many Patek Philippe watches, for a good reason: I am not a huge Patek Philippe Fan. They just don't move me. But there are some which I really love. I have a wish list of only 4 or 5 Patek, vintage included...Story

Dear Friends, let me officially share with you the HUGE joy of this new enamel piece, which I picked up upon arrival in Italy last week --- simply put, one of the best-looking watches I have EVER seen in person!

My sincere Thank-You to the great Italian AD where I picked up ... ...Story
