Yves Klein Blue GP 2598 special edition

Sep 10, 2023,16:45 PM

On strap or on the metal bracelet, I really like this special series ref 2598 where 50 pieces were made. Bi-compax with no date. Issued very stealthy in 2002.

The 38 mm stepped case, with the Yves Klein blue dial with Breguet applied numbers. Dauphine hands make this sporty and yet stylish.

6 hander with central chronograph running.

Cushion case pieces from GP are well balanced and it’s been 20 years since we last saw one from them.

What do you guys think of these cushion cases from GP?

Would a cushion case reissue from GP be well received ?

The past, I agree. Thanks, yes, the dial with the purple blue YK hue is fantastic. This one one my wrist is 20 years old and still as fresh as when it was issued. What’s your recommendation for a reissue model for GP?

I think the cushion case were considered “hot” as it won

Watch if the year in japan 1999. Majority were sold in asia. I think the grey market dealers never got behind the brand in the past as they were anchored behind the usual suspects already. Thanks, I find them lovely too. Quite delightful… sole watches I g...

always get the original bracelet for any watch where possible. There will come a day when they are no longer available and it’s always easy enough to swap it out to a strap if so desired. Always good to have that option. Especially for prices no longer in... 

I hear you...

Many years ago I bought an IWC Doppelchronograph on strap, it took me at least 6 months to find an original used bracelet for it and believe me, it wasn't cheap.

I don't know...

There are some gems like these with GP from the 1990s and early 2000s. Neo-vintage and rare birds. GP was already know for its low production volumes back then. And some special editions are so rare that very few pics available. GP didn’t document all tha... 

Indeed. There is something special about them

Too many are wearing watches way too big for their wrists. Good to see mainstream folks being more of this now. Purists have been conscious of this already for many years. I also find case diameter to be a very poor determinant of hoe a watch will wear. I... 

Sharp on the bracelet

Your GP 2598 ivory dial really fit you well. Perhaps time to get one again? Took these two pics for you just now. Time for bed here in Singapore. 👋 ...
