Beautiful piece and nice sneakers

I never had exposure to Pateks, beyond handling a Nautilus 12 years ago when they weren’t film wrapped and so precious like they are now. Winding was quite buttery. Maybe a Grand Seiko winds like that too, but the experiences are 12 years apart, so I could never accurately qualify the experience.


Looking forward to some lume shots of that beauty you’re wearing….

It now winds like a “Patek” or so the service guy claims. Ive never wound a Patek so i wouldn’t know although it does wind quite smoothly 🙂 ...  

That case looks as sharp as new Patek 😜🤣. Did the service include a polish?

Easy to lose the bevels on this case. Besides, those are my scratches 😁

I’ve handled several Pateks but just to admire and not to fiddle around with pushers or crowns

Hehe good one :-)

The movement inside this is a top performer, indeed. 👍

Very accurate also.

Agree 100%

I had the GMT version 10 years ago. Accurate, problem-free and very robust

And the wave dial is killer. Sold it to get Planet Ocean, which then sold again for a Commander bond. The scallop bezel and twisted lugs is very beautiful ...  

Had and sold the “midsize” version of this watch. It just didn’t look or feel quite right.

If I’d have gotten the full sized version like yours I’d likely still have it.

Doh!
