Independents: This looks like early prototype of Journe tourbillon

and also a reminiscent of Jean Baptise-Voit's chronometre. Maybe this is the French style . Very old world charm, I like. But as a new watchmaker, why make this tourbillon when it is not exactly very special, with no remontoir or anything new. Maybe I'm missing something here. The overall presentati

Independents: I will definitely choose...

the Gronenfeld. It has a beautiful dial which you won't get bored and it has the remontoir, which is pretty rare. The 1815 chronograph is just another iteration of the legendary Datograph. I have not tried the Gronenfeld on the wrist but I know that the 1815 wears bigger than what the diameter sugge

Patek Philippe: I think one can wait for another 6-12 months...

The price is soft now and may get even softer. Nevertheless, it is the very best classic PC if you cannot bear spending so much money on a 3448.

Patek Philippe: No worries...

After all these 5050 was launched just before the internet era, so many info are harder to get. I do believe this will be a big classic in the next 10 years. But do note that being a classic has nothing to do with price increasing :P Personally I hope the price can keep going lower on this so I can

Patek Philippe: Yes...Both beautiful !

They will be very sought after 10 years from now :P I am also very fascinated by the curved 'AUTOMATIC' wording. So far I have not found any other Patek with such wordings on the dial. Such wording feels retro now.

Patek Philippe: I wonder if such piece truly exist...

The reason I question that is if you compare this image with a Roman Dial 5050, it is impossible for the date apertures and the moonphase to be in this position when the case size is the same, especially when they are using the same movement. Could this be a rendering?

Patek Philippe: Wow... This is such a great piece !!!

From the photo, the case seems slightly different from the other 5050. The Roman index seems thinner too. The breguet hands go very well with the Roman indexes. Personally, I really like 5050 in YG case. It feels authentic to its classic vibe. Btw, how do you tell this is first series?

Patek Philippe: Just personal preference :-)

5110P has everything needed already. The additional enamel dial does not seem like something I will wear when I travel extensively. It is beautiful no doubt
