Quite true…slogan

 
 By: Clueless_Collector : July 17th, 2022-02:09
I’m not like past emperors or kings who get buried with treasures only to get looted.

Once my eyes closed for good, who cares 😂

For now, I’m loving my life and my watches.

Have a great weekend.





Can’t wait for the 5960P to be back from spa, quoted $1340, reasonable to me for a 13yrs young watch.





👍👍👍

Wear our watches and enjoy it!

Big +1 👍

Lol…just merely stating the facts for the next generation 😉

Marketing, marketing, marketing... Hasn't anybody realized this slogan is true for all high end classic brands?

Welcome home to the 5960!  Patek Philippe really knows their market and what to say to appeal to them.  And they hired the right UK Based PR company!

Hmmm…what if my collection theme or habits are…

 
 By: Clueless_Collector : July 17th, 2022-06:08
actually influenced by this Marketing, subconsciously, all these years since young?!?!

I’m starting to doubt my real self now 😅

Not at all... You have no reason to think like that. You're not affected by marketing more than average.

 
 By: patrick_y : July 17th, 2022-15:37
It's just that the slogan wording really applies to anything we buy that's mechanical and of quality.  And we are all susceptible to marketing.  There are some of us who flat out deny this, they deny that they cannot be swayed by marketing, and they're wrong.  We are all affected by marketing.  Marketing done well is about three things; positioning the brand well (position as what is Rolls-Royce level and what is average level), exposing the brand to the right audience (a Rolls-Royce car should be angled towards the art loving and opera loving crowd, not marketed towards a skateboarding crowd - even if this group of skateboarders all would buy one), and simply giving some valuable insight about the brand (the more a client knows about a brand, the more likely they'll buy it - if I know more Vacheron Constantin tidbits and small facts than I know about Patek Philippe then, I'm more likely to buy VC over Patek Philippe even if they're equivalent products).  But going back to this slogan, merely, Patek Philippe knew their audience.  And the PR company they contracted to design all the advertisements really listened to Patek Philippe when Patek Philippe told them a large portion of their sales were to ethnic Chinese in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, and more in South East Asia, while they still did a large amount of business in the Americas and Europe.  The PR company really chose a slogan that resonates extremely well with all cultures and societies.  But the same slogan applies to a Vacheron Constantin timepiece, a Lange timepiece, or anything that is high enough quality that's worthy to be handed down to the next generation.  We buy things because of what they stand for.  We buy a big gigantic jeep car because we think that their capabilities are impressive, even though we won't ever drive it off road.  We buy a sports car yet hardly ever drive it very fast (everyone's definition of fast is different) simply because we appreciate the technology behind it.  It's not marketing.  It's just simply what we like! 

Did you watch the movie Focus by Will Smith and Margot Robbie…

How they guess the bet big and won guessing the jersey number 55 of the player?
“People” plant things in our mind, programmed in our DNAs, I’m into Alien theory 😂

I do remember that part of that movie!

Now I've got that song stuck in the back of my mind!

Watches are meant to be worn and enjoyed....

 
 By: Rhyzen : July 17th, 2022-05:22
....  And I can see you are enjoying this one!

A pity the reference is discontinued.  I guess the next generation really do have to pray for an inheritance to get this....

I can say none of my watches are not worn…

 
 By: Clueless_Collector : July 17th, 2022-06:14
For every new or new to me watch, I will test the accuracy and functions to make sure they are in good conditions.
The 5960 has been around since 2006, about time to retire…I think this is a good way of creating treasures for us to pass on.

Vwey well said, I couldn't agree more!

 
 By: Rhyzen : July 17th, 2022-07:15

I am the guy to rather enjoy what I own. So the Patek motto doesn't sing to me.

We have similar passion and that’s the right way to go. Enjoy!

+1, mon ami.

Génial; i love this 5960 ebony

I lost the battle to resist 😉

 
 By: Clueless_Collector : July 17th, 2022-15:01

We are similar in that we try to wear all our watches Raymond although I find myself having difficulties wearing all of them due to travel restrictions due to having them in different locations and sheer volume...

Also, since I do not have kids, there is NO next generation so these beauties will either be given to other family members, sold off, or buried with me "greedy PHAROAH style." 🤣🤣

You also have me, Brother! 😜😜😜

 
 By: Clueless_Collector : July 17th, 2022-15:01

Indeed, long lost brother 😜😜🤣🤣

Amazing photos and such a stunning timepiece!

 
 By: KCLQMULKU : July 17th, 2022-20:27
Always love PP's adverts, and which was actually what got me to notice the brand back in 2006.

These magazines are still a delight to read, own and serves as a pretty backdrop for watch photos. Thanks my friend,

" You never pay for a Patek. You merrily spend the money of your next generation." 🤫

I'll be happy to do that....I always say "Money is not yours till you spent it"

Let the next gen worry about their future, although I'm doing my part/responsibility as a parent to raise them enough to a point and be independent smile)

Spot On

 
 By: Billfav : July 29th, 2022-14:10
Agree 200%. I give/gave my kids unwavering support and an education. At that point they are on their own. If I am fortunate I will leave something for grandchildren. But I still love the PP slogan, and enjoy my watches while anticipating passing some on.

Totally…enjoy while we can…let the next generation grow and learn.

 
 By: Clueless_Collector : July 29th, 2022-17:41
Too much knowledge passing on might actually limit them into a box. Leave imagination open. Cheers 🍻

Worth the wait

 
 By: Jeff_M : August 5th, 2022-22:04
Just got mine back from the spa today. About the same price.





Oh my…that is my grail kind of watch. Sublime….wear it with best of health.
