Dear Friends,

it is with great pleasure that I can officially share with you four new remarkable "high jewelry" Grand Complications released today! none

Many thanks --- even more than usual! --- to Patek for sending this detailed material to be shared with my forum, since due to the extremely limited production of these models, their launch has been relatively "under the radar" today!
With the exception of Patek's official site, where you can already find some information, I am sincerely honored to be one of the first (perhaps the first? ;-) international outlet to present these highly exclusive new releases for our members! none

Without further ado, below is a selection of official pictures for each of the four models, all showcasing Patek's absolute mastery of the technique of "gemsetting":

Refs. 6300/400G and /401G; and refs. 5271/11P (sapphires) and /12P (rubies).

The official press release and further documents will follow soon!

Thanks again to Patek Philippe for the opportunity to make this very special announcement --- and I sincerely hope you will enjoy! none

Whew.... when I look at these, I at once marvel at the craftsmanship, yet disdain the 'flashiness' of this type of design.... A mixed batch of thoughts and feelings.... Thanks for the pics Fabrizio, Filip

Thanks for commenting Filip :-) While I personally find these (specific) "haute joaillerie" versions of existing models to be totally unmatched combinations of jewelry and horology, I agree that, almost by definition, they cannot be for everyone! ;-) Note the two models they take "inspiration" from, where pure horology is much more prominent: Ref. 5270 (of which we currently have three versions in catalog), and Ref. 6300. In particular, the latter is the worthy successor of the "Anniversary reference"...

Those are completely mesmerizing. The way I tend to see it, one can pull it off (regardless of their sex - male, female and in between x) only if their sensibilities are such that they minimize absolutely everything about their presentation except the watch itself.... Then, in my mind, it...

You could definitely be right in your analysis --- we are speaking of such a rarefied group of collectors here (especially when it comes to the 6300) that it's difficult to make general statements... ... but I honestly wouldn't be shocked if, at that level, even a 6300 might get "competition in the presentation" for some collectors! (A car? a plane? Or maybe really noting?? ) For sure, in this day and age, lots of people will be waiting to see the fir...

The funny thing is.... due to my current line of work, I've found myself 'rubbing shoulders' with a few billionaires on a frequent basis, and I can tell you that 'your typical billionaire' (whatever that might mean), would never sport something along these lines on a frequent b...

LoLL NOT with something like that on their wrist hawhawhaw.... The contract doesn't include a clause where it's OK to deliberately increase liability 300% .... The previous person I worked with bought a $50K Patek for his 72nd birthday.... The one I currently ...

I gotta get myself something jeweled... My favorite part is the clasp! I especially like the clasp! I've been thinking about this clasp since I saw the 5971!

I seriously think they are *spectacular* pieces, for me the red in particular must be something breathtaking on the wrist! The only thing honestly needed to be considered is the $348k vs. the $211k for the "standard" 5270P ;-) Patek is reading this thread, so who knows, maybe they'll decide to reward a top-tier collector like yourself if you submit a request! All of these pieces, including the two 5271s, will of course be extremely limited despite their being in regular product...

Patek Philippe World Time 5110P: 18 years of pleasure.

The 5110P is the second watch to be in my collection for such a long time, the first being the Ulysse Nardin Sonata which I received on the 23rd of July... 2004. This is one of these few watches which gives me such a strong pleasure and satisfaction. Each time I have it on my wrist, I know why I dreamed about it since the first day of its unveiling, and why I bought it on the 2d of November 2004.
