Hi All, this is my belated second and last post about the Singapore Grand Exhibition in which I learned some important and interesting information from ...

Ms Anita Porchet, the best enameler artist in the horological world today, gave me some interesting information.   My original post on the exhibition She and her team made 5131G and 5131P !  No wonder I have always rated 5131G's dial as the best four bec...  

Thanks my friend, your typically interesting and informative post on my most favorite watches (within my most favorite brand), so I could have hardly asked for more! :-)

I also have a 5131P, as you know, so glad to know Ms. Porchet and her team were directly involved in the production. You're also implying that she was *not* involved in the realization of the 5131J and R, if I understand correctly? That'd be surprising bu... 

Hi Fab, Ms. Anita Porchet told me that she and her team were...

 By: GLau : December 1st, 2019-08:37
involved in making the 5131G &P and 5531. She did not say J and R. Hence, I would think not for J and R. So now 5531 is in the works for you my friend ??

If nothing again arrives in 2020 of the 5089/5077/etc. series, then I'm seriously going to consider the 5531...A two-year abstinence would be unbearable my friend..;-))

Italy however seems on a roll again for special pieces (remember what they sent me via whatsapp yesterday? It wasn't even an isolated case , so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

The G is a glorious piece and the one I hoped to get before the wait become longer than the production cycle. 😉

No, back in 2008 I put my name down for the 5131G

Thanks Gordon

 By: DOCSF : December 19th, 2019-11:28
I have just read it. It is great to get an insight from a collector who owns 5131 in all 4 metals. On my previous post what I meant was whether your 5131R was 5131R-011 as opposed to a 5131R-001 or 5131R-010.

Russell your photo looks very familiar.

 By: DOCSF : December 19th, 2019-11:00
I just noted wikipedia is using your photo on their Patek page.

I am a Wikipedian so yes it is my photo of my piece being used.

Magnificent piece as well.

 By: DOCSF : December 22nd, 2019-01:46
I understand your piece is 5131R-001 and your friend's piece is 5131R-010. I haven't seen many 5131Rs with Brisbane on the city ring.

Brisbane was only for the 010 model

 By: russell996 : December 22nd, 2019-02:30
3 year production, 1 year each for 001, 010 and 011.
