Patek 3448j question

For ref. 3448 the transition from engraved hard enamel to printed dials happened in 1970. For other references such as the 2499 the switch from engraved to printed took place a couple of years after around 1972. The four series of the 3448 are roughly as

Patek 3448j question

where the numbers are represented 'radially' around the dial in all cases. Unfortunately this style is rarely seen in modern watches. I have personally met this dealer at his shop in Manhattan and while I did not buy a watch (I was looking at 3940s) he is

Dear all purists, I’m saving for my next Patek purchase and would like to hear your advises...

I’m struggling between which of the following I should acquire. 5059R 3940J 5056P Their current market prices are kind of similar (well, less for 5056P since it’s an annual calendar not a perpetual). It’s very tempting for me to be able to own a Grand Com

PP 5320G Lume

Out of curiosity, I decided to charge the lume and see what it looks like. I have also wondered, like many in this forum, why the need to have the extra 5 and 7 index. I think it make sense to me now, without them, the lume shot will look odd.

Dear Purists, I kindly seek your purchasing advice, please. 5327 or 5496? Which of these two would you choose based on your experience and preferences and why?

I somehow cannot get myself to like the retrograde date on the 5496, while the dial of the 5327 is just too busy with the way all the information is displayed. Furthermore, due to its large bezel and the shape of the case it looks much smaller than its no
