Thanks for your comment Miles :-) Probably even more than other models, I'm sure that the new 5905 and 5930 need to be seen in the metal in order to be fully appreciated...and I'm also looking forward to it! ;-) Cheers my friend.
I'm assuming this new iteration (green, which is the color of the year, plus Platinum) will be more successful than the earlier G version...but I'll be interested to see the market's reaction for it, it's indeed never been a big favorite so far! ;-)
It certainly sounds like a "wilder" idea for Patek's marketing than it would for other brands, but not necessarily a bad one in my view....and I'll save your prediction since I don't knw the answer yet! ;-))
I'm pretty confident it will be received with more enthusiasm than the G version, but I'm curious to see to which extent, since it's not necessarily given for granted...for sure, I am putting it in the *very* good-looking category! ;-) Cheers.
...my comment was more about the future desirability of watches considered 'ugly' at the time of manufacture. The ref. 5020 comes to mind. I loved it the moment I saw it, but they didn't sell many when it first came out. Now it is very pricey : )
Thanks for commenting Nico, hopefully the choice of green will make this model more trendy (in the sense of attractive) given the lower degree of success of the G iteration..will be interesting to see!😉
