Patek Philippe: Thanks man super useful table. And info.

So the new cylinder has an app connecting to it. That is very cool. Meaning you can probably also monitor the battery levels. The big and beautiful looking watch winder doesn’t have any of that.

Patek Philippe: Cool. Point taken. You might just be right.I’ll speak to a watchmaker to see what he says. But I can already hear his answer as I am writing this: don’t be bothered either way😂

So as it boils down to so many discussion here on this forum the answer I think is “have both”. The box for when you wear it often and store it at home and the vertical cylinder one for the bank storage when storing it for longer periods.

Patek Philippe: PP watch winder full size-is this good for the movement or not? What is your take?

When picking up the 5320g, we chose the full size winder that is still available from the AD over the more practical cylinder type PP winder which was also an option. We were told the full size one has been discontinued. Not sure if they are discontinuing or maybe preparing for an upgrade. Of course

Jaeger-LeCoultre: A true excellence in the ultra-thin art.

People tend to forget that thinness is a complication in it’s own right. I had the 38 mm, which is a bit less sophisticated but super cool too. I am missing the featherlight presence, the fantastic movement and the reliability of this JLC masterpiece. Personally I might chase the Jubilee pt when I c

Patek Philippe: Sure, will send pics very soon.

It’s the one that looks like a PP watchbox. Apparently discontinued he said.
