Here's the answer from my personal collection --- the platinum bracelet of Ref. 5131/1P, which (in my view) further elevates this spectacular reference to a totally new level! :-)

The heft (both practically and figuratively! ;-) the watch acquires with this bracelet is pretty remarkable. Also interesting, this is the only Patek Rare Handcraft reference EVER to come as "/1P" (i.e., with a P bracelet), thus making it even more specia...

I wonder how long it takes to do those dials?

Only a few people are authorized to work on Rare Handcraft dials at Patek (a handful for enamel, and for instance *only one* for wood marquetry! ;-), so while timelines are not an exact science, I can estimate a 5131 can take a few weeks to complete.

Out of total honesty, however, keep in mind that the 5131s in the four metals (or now the 5231s) are *in-catalog* Rare Handcrafts, hence relatively more accessible and with simpler enamel dials than the out-of-catalog references we announce every year (50... 

Question for purists: Milanese or Beads-of-Rice bracelets???

I don’t know how some here will take it? Some will laugh, cry or scratch their heads. I do wish the case size were smaller maybe someday. ...

Shark mesh

The best of both worlds: supple as leather, sturdy as metal, more comfortable in hot and humid weather than beads of rice, doesn't pull hair and looks deadly cool! ...

The RO Jumbo bracelet is spectacular. The sharp angles and the way it catches the light sets it apart. While I have other bracelets that have individual qualities that I like - and that match well with their respective watches - this RO bracelet is in a l...
