Grand Master Chime 5175 and 6002 ...  

Just wow!!

No words necessary.

Always a special treat when you share those exceptional pieces!

There is a lot that I dislike about modern PP. But at the top of the range it is a different story.... A man (and family) of great tastes, thank you!

I think I echo what everyone else has said.

 By: roger.goodgion : October 9th, 2019-20:51
Wow. Iโ€™m speechless. Thanks for the pictures.


 By: roger.goodgion : October 9th, 2019-20:51
And nice nails.

Maybe #1 Patek Philippe collector in the world!

 By: Rei : October 9th, 2019-20:54
I believe that 100%. Mr Bhirombhakdi was also a FP Journe's collector (shown in Japanese magazine many years ago),!

Yes, indeed [nt]

You've replied to his daughter, Catulle.

Iโ€™m sorry

top two pieces from Patek ! Please continue with this type of posts covering very rare Pateks !

I love when you post pictures of your father, CBB

 By: ChristianDK : October 11th, 2019-03:09
it is easy to sense that he had true passion. My favorite picture is the last of them, where he is pointing at his watch, in front of the open Leica catalogue. He seems to me, to have been a remarkable person

Thatโ€™s when he just got the 6002! [nt]

What an amazing collector and connaisseur

 By: davmartin : October 12th, 2019-11:17
A truly collector and enthusiastic person.

What a great post...

 By: holdemchamp1225 : October 12th, 2019-15:55
it is always such a pleasure reading one of your posts, especially if it contains some photos or anecdotal stories of your father. It just makes things more personal and sentimental. Thanks again for sharing.

Thank you

 By: cbb in honor of Chamnong Bhirombhakdi : October 13th, 2019-19:19
It means a lot as I really want people to know that he was person of real watch passions

And that passion was

 By: roger.goodgion : October 14th, 2019-12:37
Clearly passed down to you and it looks like you are nurturing it in your children. That is wonderful. But also wonderful that you share these experiences and pictures. Your familyโ€™s journey with Patek is a rare one. You have hands on experience through o...

I hope so! ...  

Are we impressed by the watches or the cost?

 By: Mostel : October 16th, 2019-16:55
My question is, do you LIKE his watches? I do not. I understand they were outrageously expensive. But do you like them? Does this aspect matter to you? I am not trying to 'hijack' the thread but... can we be candid? Do we have to automatically love this m... 

Actually I do like the watches.

 By: roger.goodgion : October 16th, 2019-17:05
Sometimes watches are more artistic endeavors. These particular watches, as I may be falsely understanding, are meant to showcase multiple areas of craftsmanship that all reside under the house of Patek. The design intent is showcase, not daily beater. Ca... 

I hear you

Iโ€™m not trying to brag

 By: cbb in honor of Chamnong Bhirombhakdi : October 16th, 2019-21:56
I simply want to show a manโ€™s ( my late father ) true passion and not collecting watches for profit like so many people do now. He genuinely appreciate the artesian, the craftsmanship of time pieces. Itโ€™s HIS hobby and he did within his own means and his ... 

Hi cbb, please continue to post your dad's, your family's and your collection ! No matter how huge or how humble one's collection is, IMO sharing (our horological passion)...

 By: GLau : October 17th, 2019-04:17
is caring !! I for one like seeing the rare pieces being worn by your father because they are being enjoyed.

No question, CBB

I would guess that you are one of two out of seven having both these references (you and the Patek museum) ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‹ but maybe Iโ€™m wrong.

Maybe 1 of 7?

 By: cbb in honor of Chamnong Bhirombhakdi : October 21st, 2019-23:49
I figured, anyone who is lucky enough to own the GMC is a true Patek fan and hence, would most probably own the 6002 too ๐Ÿ’–

It definitely shows passion ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ

What your posts show in the most delightful way is the extreme passion that your Dad had for the finest in modern horology

 By: patekova : October 21st, 2019-12:21
AND the source of your extreme passion for the watches your Dad so treasured. Also your posts show how you have carried on the family tradition in your own purchases of Patek. More important your posts clearly demonstrate the depth of your love for your D...

This means a lot to me that you really understand my reason for the posts! Thank you

My pleasure. I merely put into words that which to me seems so obvious.

 By: patekova : October 22nd, 2019-07:10
Many of the most exotic and complicated Pateks that you post, rarely if ever, see the light of day. Often they are never seen in person or even in print - at best they are images in a catalogue. So to see photos of therm in the real and being enjoyed is a...

Any great time pieces

To me, are to be worn & enjoy and not to be saved in banks or vaults not to be seen.

The big man himself just loved Patek Philippe.....

He may have been a billionaire..... He may have revolutionised the Thai beer industry...... He may have had a good life...... But the 1 thing he loved most was PATEK PHILIPPE. He was a very nice guy (I breifly met him over 15 years ago). Just a love for a...
