Annoying Patek Black

 By: anaroku : August 12th, 2020-11:05

*thanks for many photo from the Net

The first black dial model I bought was an #5140p-013. I was captivated by the gorgeousness and bought it on a loan. The fact that I had a special party nearby also pushed my back.

Until then, I had seen #5227black and #5170black(breguet), but unlike the commerecial photo, the real models were difficult to see the time (irregible) and I was hesitant to buy.So you can see how #5140p, who got the power of diamond, killed me instantly? However, it was too gorgeous for everyday use and ended up playing well in just one party night.

After that, when I let go of #5140, it was hard to part from Patek Black and I bought #5107p. I felt that its dauphine hand was larger and easier to see than #5227 or #5170.
Passion for the Black grew steadily, and finally #5370p was obtained through #5960p-016  . In a sense, #5370 is Patek's ultimate goal model.
It has a lot of charm, but Breguet index & lum leaf hands combination also plays a big role.I am afraid actually, that specification (LUM)  is also a cause of impairing nobility.

But I like this combination. I know that #5396G-012Tiffany has such a condition, but it is a limited model and it is too expensive. Does anyone else know of this combination model? (black leaf bregue)

Thanks for the nice photosequence, some of these black-dialed Pateks are real masterpieces, starting of course with the (now-discontinued) version of the 5370P!

I think you made a great choice with that one and also the 5960! ;-) The 5396 Tiffany limited edition is currently available at a known grey dealer if you are interested (but for an insane price!). 

Here's two of my favorites with a black dial (and in general! ;-), from pictures taken during a Salon visit (refs. 6002 and 6300, the latter now available with a blue dial only).

Cheers ;-)

thanks FabR

but this is evtremely unusual special model!!

and I know that the famous dealer you said is having #5396Tiffany. It is very expensive but I think it may be reasonable judging from its rarety 

The 6002 and 6300 are no doubt at the very top of Patek's offering, my favorite being (if I really have to choose :-) the 6002...a real dream for virtually any collector! ;-) Cheers. [nt]

I would rather see a great theme for a collection, here. The 5370P and the 5140 caught all my attention. ;) [nt]
