Should I trade my four watch collection for a Patek 5270/1R?

I did something similar a year ago where I traded my 5905P and 5711R and a 116500 daytona for a 5970G which is my absolute grail. Now im very happy the watch is in my collection but I do miss my 116500 so I would suggest only letting go of 3 watches and k

For the pleasure of the eyes: Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Chronograph 5970G.

The EC 5970p salmon with Sand blasted breguet numerals and hands is unique and the 5970g Salmon as mine from the London Saatchi exhibition is under 5. As you may expect I prefer my 5970g version with the perfectly balanced dial as the original with white

Should I trade my four watch collection for a Patek 5270/1R?

One super watch vs a few great ones. I’ve thought about doing that but some of the watches I own were passed down or gifts so they were off limits. The 5270R looks great on your wrist. I would not be able to pull it off but you do! I doubt it will be your

Interchanging the bracelet with a strap on the 5270/1R

Can anyone here confirm if the bracelet on the 5270/1R is interchangeable with a strap? I am aware of the integrated pushers in the bracelet, however I’m wondering if the pushers are in fact actually on the case itself like the 5270P and the bracelet’s pu

Should I trade my four watch collection for a Patek 5270/1R?

From your recent acquisition and posts about Patek Philippe watches, you’ve been very eager to add more Pateks this and that, and keep moving up as if your current ones are not heavyweight enough. This is normal, as we will always hope to get that grail w

Should I trade my four watch collection for a Patek 5270/1R?

My thoughts on a rose gold bracelet watch have shifted over the years. I used to love them, owned a few, but today I find them to be a little nouveau riche and gaudy. I just don’t see them as particularly sophisticated. Now, I love the 5270G on strap whic

to wind or not to wind a perpetual when not in use

I have a Perpetual Chronograph 5270R. I wind it everyday. It keeps excellent time and I am not concerned about wear. When I travel I don’t usually take this piece so I let it run down. Then when I return I set it with a bamboo skewer (not the gold pusher)

Patek market pricing "mismatch" or a complete departure from reality. Elasticity of demand.

What happens if you walk into the Patek AD and the retail price on the 5711A is higher than the retail price of the 5205G? Watch pricing should follow a logic, at least the MSRP level set by the brands. Pricing tells the inexperienced client a story. Prec
