Nice decision to have!

I believe if people get accepted to buy this they tend to do it because of it being a rare handcraft. I appreciate that you are not letting this be your sole judgememt. I agree difficult to read, but I do love all that engraving and LOVE the case flank. W...

Very happy this beauty has arrived Nils! We already discussed it in private many times and from every possible angle over the last year, so I really don't have much to add....except that it looks great on you, and it is time for the big decision! :-)

For me, it was kindly delivered to one of the Italian ADs right before I arrived in Summer 2021. It was love at first sight when it sat on my wrist, and not even a couple months later, after a useful chat with Patek about production numbers, I decided to ...
