Patek Philippe: White 5711a was discontinued in early 2020

Usually the run out list will be public in March, but there was a leak in Jan 2020 that white 5711a was discontinued So those with 26-330 movement are few. The 5711s were the only pieces, along with 5212a, that got the new movement in April 2019 (though hard to say when they were really manufactured

Patek Philippe: 5231j for me

Something about the case speaks more to me. With the angles and lugs, smaller bezel, in yellow gold has a vintage feel. Also think the enamel work is different, more detailed for sure. Have heard the enamel artist shifted from mother (for 5131j) to her son for later models including the 5131p and 52

Patek Philippe: NYC

Michael Ashton and Madison Time are your best bets to see the most. Michael Ashton has more modern. Madison Time more vintage and rare. They both have websites to view so you can see if they’re carrying anything you’re looking for There are other guys too, but inventory is usually limited Make appoi

Patek Philippe: Beautiful watch, my favorite Patek

Surprised me how wearable it is. Size and dimensions are perfect. And the dial is the best blue from Patek. I love mine so much I’m thinking about the other 5170s! Thanks for sharing

Patek Philippe: Thanks

I figured, it looked similar to the 5960/1G. I ordered one from CF with same specifications. Think the 5mm width is better for the 1A

Patek Philippe: I’d say go for the 5990

Both are great pieces, but the 5990 is unique in that it’s the only watch Patek manufactures with that movement - travel time, chrono, date. Most other Patek references use movements from one watch to another, but the 5990 movement solely for the 5990 That makes it an important piece, and also more

Patek Philippe: All so different...

And all can be enjoyed differently. I love them all, but I love my 5712 since it was one of the first Pateks to draw me in. Really is a classic piece that to me has no real comp, vs 3700 will be compared to original Jumbos, and 5980 will be compared to a lot of other sporty chronos... It’s unique in
