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! none

I know my pictures will never do it justice, but I hope they will at least convey a feeling of the AMAZING dial of this 5177G (authored by Anita Porchet's atelier), which is already one of the top, top favorite Pateks of my collection! none

My sincere Thank-You to the great Italian AD where I picked up this beauty, and of course to Patek Philippe for honoring me with another one of these incredible allocations!

Hope you'll enjoy! none

Yes I agree… They take on a different “feel” as the light changes and catches the dial.

The Duometre à Chronographe in white gold is certainly not the watch which is in my collection for the longest time, by far, but 5 years of common life, that starts to count, especially due to the story between this watch and me, from the first discovery, at the SIHH in... 2007, the moment I got it, in 2008, in platinum with a rare white dial, the sad event which made me lose it, in January 2011, and almost 5 years later, its replacement, in white gold, this special journey makes you feel how special and ... .
