A wonderful Patek event last night at the Villa d'Este golf club....or in Boccadasse? :-)

 
 By: FabR : July 10th, 2019-06:11
Let me share with you my friends a few pictures of a typically spectacular Patek event, held last night at the Villa d'Este Golf Club, near Lake Como in Northern Italy...

My favorite 5177G-010 'Boccadasse' (of the 2018 rare handcraft collection) joined my girlfriend and myself at the party, unexpectedly becoming one of the attractions...smile

As usual, we also had a chance to try on a small selection of the current catalog, including a really tempting 6102P, the orange chrono 5968A, and the new weekly calendar 5212A.

Finally, some beautiful 'golf gifts' kindly offered by Patek wrapped up the perfect evening!

Hope you'll enjoy the selectionsmile Cheers.

Sadly the Belgian Patek dealers organize nothing here. Lake Como is big fun.

Thanks a lot my friend -- last night I was with my 'historic' AD from my hometown, but this was a golf-related event that several ADs from Northern Italy took part in with their clients...

I'm lucky to be around at a time of the year where these events normally take place down here, perhaps also due to the favorable weather. Hope they'll organize something similar also in your area, these parties are truly worth every minute smile Cheers

Looks like a great event...

And you don’t need to try other watches because the one you already had one beats all of the watches you tried imo.

Have fun. And have a great summer!!!

Thank-You, I appreciate it :-) Not only is this piece incredibly well crafted, but it also happens to hold a very special meaning for me, since Boccadasse is my #1 favorite spot in my hometown...

Really grateful and fortunate to get selected last year! ;-) Cheers

what’s the story ?

Which shoes? Oh, these shoes...:-) Since Lake Como apparently carries no eels, I felt I had to bring mine along...last year they were red, this year blue...;-) :-)

blue shoes !!  Please share information on them !  smile

Did you see 5231 and what  2019 references did you like ?
login to reply

Thanks a lot my friend, also on behalf of my new eels :-) ;-)

 
 By: FabR : July 10th, 2019-07:49
Nope, alas the 5231 is not part of the 'itinerant' collection that Patek Italia brings to these beautiful events... Actually, unlike other countries, the 5231 has yet to be delivered in Italy. But I'm really curious too to see one in the metal this summer, especially since I don't have any watches in J gold -- we'll see if my wishes come true... smile
PS: The reference that made me most curios about 2019 is perhaps the 5212, which my girlfriend actually asked to get out of the window and tried on first... maybe her first Patek? smile

Thanks for sharing!

Any novelty surprise or climb to top of wish list?
login to reply

Thank-You. The biggest surprise among what I could see last night for me was probably the 6102P, that I'd never had a chance to try on the wrist before...

That sky chart of Geneva (but you can reset it to any location of your choice) is simply stunning under the right light...I tried it on indoors first and honestly I wasn't as impressed, but then they took me outside under the sun and it is *truly* breathtaking! I'll see it again on Saturday in Milano, and I'll make a (difficult) decision then;-) Cheers

It is a magical piece

 
 By: keks : July 10th, 2019-10:03
I had the opportunity to handle one at a Patek event last year... have not yet handled this years releases unfortunately

Poor lighting on picture unfortunately...







But the piece that stole the show for me was this one...

Both spectacular, but I’m still thinking quite a lot about the 6102 since last night... I hope they’ll show it to me again under a *very* bad light on Saturday..πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰ [nt]

You just attained rock star status with that watch and shoes, Fabulous Fab πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

 
 By: I_am_Clueless : July 10th, 2019-14:18
Thanks for sharing such nice event. Always fun to receive the nice gifts.

That 5212A is going to be like any SS Patek watches where the wait list will be very long.


login to reply

Thanks a lot my friendπŸ˜€πŸ˜‡The 5212 is indeed very sought after, I also have no doubt it will be released in small quantities with long lines at the door...

 
 By: FabR : July 10th, 2019-14:57
If the big success of the 5212 will ultimately translate into a renewed interest in the Calatrava line as a whole, then they really got this one right..πŸ˜‰

Huge thanks Fab for a great report!

I love these events and used to enjoy them a lot. Unfortunately, the last few I have attended were a bit too "serious". I really live this picture, uber cool! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»



Your 5177 Boccadasse is simply a work of art, so not surprised that it got plenty of attention. Cheers my friend and good luck with the 6102!
