Patek Philippe: So so so fine...

Congrats on a truly exceptional and beautiful piece. I view this one as the top of a related triumvirate, the 5227, 5205 and 5327 - all with those sinuous curves and scalloped lugs.

Patek Philippe: Great choice for sure

I understand your fascination with the 5196. In fact, I recently had the same fascination and ended up ordering the 5196G from my AD, and I am now awaiting delivery.
