Horological Meandering: Murakamo or 5022P for me...

I don't like the Urban Jurgensen for its dial color, hour hand, the lugs and foremost its size which I find far too large for a basic dress watch. This leaves the Murakamo and the 3960G. Between those two I would pick the Murakamo w/o any doubt as the 3960G's case looks a little too old-fashioned fo

Patek Philippe: I like the watch, minimal, practical and all but...

... I'd have wanted to see it in the regular catalogue rather than as a 600 piece limited edition which is actually quite a lot for Patek. If it could be had regularly at MSRP after a short wait I might get one. Maybe Patek had been afraid an unlimited 5522A would have cannibalized the 5524G which i

Patek Philippe: Back to topic... Some points to consider with the 5035, 5196, and 5296...

The 5035 has horological significance as the first AC but it hasn't aged as well as other Pateks in my view. Both the 5035 and 5196 are 37mm but the 5196 is wearing much larger on the wrist given its thin bezel, empty dial, and overall flatness. When I was looking for my first Patek I considered the

Patek Philippe: No offense but pointing out that there is more important stuff than the first world problems discussed in many threads on watch forums is stating the obvious ...

... and makes it no less weird to vent ones anger about a forum in one thread and minutes later opening another thread on that very forum to ask for advice.
