A 2-watch collection from the current production of Patek Philippe: budget $150,000

Same rules as before, except this time the budget is $150,000 for the two. Which two would you buy from the current collection that would cover all the bases for a 2-watch collection from Patek?

This one is much harder than before. I am going with two watches that I don't own.

My rationale is that within that budget, it just isn't possible to go for the grand complications so readily! Similarly, one needs two watches that can cover all the bases.


So, for me, I am going for the 5968A (even though its too big on my wrist) and the 5230G because I see the latter as quite a formal world time watch. I wanted to love the 5968A so much, but for my wrist it just didn't work. It is possible that the 5164A would end up as my casual wearer.


So, what would be your two from the current range?

You are right Joe! This is much more difficult especially as it has to come from the current collection! I would choose my incoming 7234R and the 5170P! The perfectly sized 7234R which is actually a ladies watch! The 5170P and its gorgeous dial ...

Taste is a fickle beast. What works for one person is anathema to another. Bottom line is that there is, and never can be, a definitive right or wrong when it comes to personal taste. Similarly, the reasons why one person buys a watch is, by definition, unique to that person.
