Patek Philippe: They wear very differently on the wrist

Despite numbers that are very close to one another! I think that's an important thing to consider. The 5110 dial is smaller and much more intricate, so it feels *even* smaller. The 5196 dial is wider and plainer, so it feels much more expansive. The 5110 case is thicker and curvier. The 5196 case is

Patek Philippe: A deer with no antlers, though.

The case is smoooooth, so it goes down a little easier than you might expect. But it is a thick watch and there's no hiding that.

Horological Meandering: Loved the dial, didn't love the case

Really handsomely done dial. I loved the depth with the city ring, and I love the shade and texture of blue they used. I'm generally not a fan of blue dials: this is the only one I've ever been willing to own! But the Zurich case wore a little big--the dial felt VERY wide, the lugs felt awfully long

Rolex: I'm not sure I understand the question.

Wouldn't any 20mm leather strap on regular spring bars fit the watch? There's no end of good strap makers out there, from Camille Fournet and Jean Rousseau on down.

F.P. Journe: I wouldn't, but this isn't about me

There's a value at which that Journe made sense to you to own--and it's looking like it could now fetch well above that value. No shame in using that change in the market to make a move!
