Does anyone want to participate in some Basel 2020 Patek Calatrava speculation?

If the 5212a had been exactly the same but with just time and date (and not handwritten bits obviously) i would buy in an instant. I think the concern from a business standpoint is that once you introduce steel, you cannibalize your precious metal turnove

Need some suggestions

about my lifestyle needs, well I always have been a stainless steel guy and I was happy with my nautilus 5711 for almost 10 years but recently I'm starting to like it less because of the hype happening around it, it feels more like a fashion watch to me (

First impressions of the 5196P

i'm fine with the movement, thanks to closed case back but the price point is distracting - there are good offers that picks your attention. timeless design in deed ! BTW - you've well captured the beauty of 5196p - just magnificent ! Best, Mahesh.,

Facts 1/ We know from the Autumn 2019 Patek Magazine that new Calatravas are coming. 2/There is the new movement 26-330 3/It is meant to appeal to "younger" buyers Speculation 1/It seems unlikely there will be a steel time-and-date-only model calatrava? 2

First impressions of the 5196P

. . . 6 probably has more to do with convention . . . [33 mm Ω ref 2364] . . . than aesthetic considerations. Or, to put it another way, old habits die hard. Plus, the subdial of your Calatrava is centered between the cannon pinion and the northern border

First impressions of the 5196P

I think you know my standing with this reference, it’s the most appealing Calatrava in the recent production. Small moment? Who cares, I don’t see it, but what I see is that everything stays clean, nothing interferes with the other indications and that al

First impressions of the 5196P

There is the fantastic "scientific" dial from the 1930's and the extremely rare and expensive ref 530, which by the way might have been the inspiration for this watch. That one measures 36.5mm and came with a Breguet dial. Someone mentioned that the numer

that this watch doesn't have a larger movement. I still hold hope that PP will design a replacement for the 215 that will better fit a 37-40mm Calatrava dress watch. The problem is, these types of watches (time-only, dress, elegant) seem to be less and le

First impressions of the 5196P

As I previously posted, I swapped a 5107P for this 5196P a few days ago. Some thoughts after a few days on the wrist: 1. It’s the thinnest watch I have ever owned (8mm) but far from the lightest. Particularly with the solid case back, the watch has a nice
