Thanks Fab, super collection. Apart from rare handcraft, I really love the salmon (Rose gold) dial of the PC and I'm super intrigued by the Calatrava...

 By: FabR : March 30th, 2022-06:29
Dear Friends, it is my pleasure to introduce to you live the (first group of) releases from Patek's 2022 Collection! These twelve stunning new pieces are also being announced, as we speak, on Patek's official site at: The latest references include: a bra...  

Some cool ones

 By: TeutonicCarFan : March 30th, 2022-06:42
Like the rose dial AC and the new 5172. Also, the hobnail case on the 5226 with the center seconds is intriguing!

It is nice they have them on their site already!

 By: TeutonicCarFan : March 30th, 2022-06:53
The 5230p will be a hot ref for sure! Thanks for updating 👍


 By: TeutonicCarFan : March 30th, 2022-07:03
The enamel world time is always a delight. Some lucky few will have the world on their wrist😁

love a few of them...

Ha ha yes I guess it will.be finding a way

Into the collection for sure

totally stunning .... Cheers, Filip

Equally stunning!

MSRP - ouch

 By: chris7509 : March 30th, 2022-07:21
I love the 5231 and i have checked the price increase between the 5231J i got back in November 2019 and the one proposed today (so consider ~ 3 years after ) : + 13 000 € !!! This is massive i believe now the WT is more expensive than the PT one ... Sad n... 

Thanks Fab…

 By: Watches_passion : March 30th, 2022-07:28
They are all outstanding but i think PP are not done. They have to release some Nautilus/aquananut models. If not now, then in few months. They cant leave this market to AP.

Thank you FabR

 By: penfriend : March 30th, 2022-07:29
Order placed ;-)

Hmm - i like the aviation theme

 By: penfriend : March 30th, 2022-09:28
hope to see all three variations in Geneva on Saturday

Wow ......

 By: chris7509 : March 30th, 2022-07:43
I m not sure that could be worn on a wrist but they look stunning

Some really great watches and probably my favourite Patek release in years

 By: sham1 : March 30th, 2022-08:06
Yes I have ordered the 5231G but the 5230P looks as enticing in my opinion.

Yes I noticed the map change

 By: sham1 : March 30th, 2022-10:11
Honestly, I prefer the map on the 5131G as I have spent my whole life in Asia and Europe. Also there is snow on the 5131G, a feature which I feel adds to the contrast of colours. I would be thrilled to be allocated a 5231G even if I do not receive it soon... 

Just ordered the 5230P! :-)

 By: sham1 : March 30th, 2022-13:55
Too tough to resist!

Very casual!

 By: patrick_y : March 30th, 2022-08:16
Definitely great for "work from home" culture!

I'm not sure I like that dial...

 By: patrick_y : March 30th, 2022-10:16
The case design works. That hobnail on the side in a large 40mm case works. But that dial with the flattened out section for the Patek Philippe branding to me needs to be seen in person. Patek Philippe normally gets their dials right. But this one might n... 

Very impressive!!

 By: PP888 : March 30th, 2022-10:56
I am salivating over this one with the goal of traveling again!! Definitely a must have for any world bound travelers…along with the 5231G of course…😉

PC and Calatrava

 By: ID1972Sr : March 30th, 2022-09:18
Thanks Fab, super collection. Apart from rare handcraft, I really love the salmon (Rose gold) dial of the PC and I'm super intrigued by the Calatrava...

I wonder why...

 By: amanico : March 30th, 2022-20:12


 By: coz : April 2nd, 2022-16:40
I agree and I also very much like this dark blue/black city ring. Tempting

Thank you

 By: coz : April 2nd, 2022-19:52
Thank you wonderful shots! My only concern is the strap and that can be fixed.


 By: FabR : April 3rd, 2022-00:36

The three that I really like are the

 By: Zazoukian : March 30th, 2022-10:09
5172G, 5226G and 5231G! Always quite liked the 5172 but just wasn't a fan of the color scheme but this new salmon copper dial looks great on it. 5231G looks stunning but I think I still have a soft spot for the 5231J. As for the 5226G it just looks pretty... 

Plenty of cash for that 5226G, holy shit!

 By: Pour le Mérite : March 30th, 2022-10:09
Looks fabulous but that price tag with such a movement must be a joke!

For A Few Dollars More …..

 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 30th, 2022-12:58
You can shop with Fab ;-)) ...  


 By: FabR : March 30th, 2022-13:06

5226G and 5326G dial color

 By: w220 : March 30th, 2022-11:33
Not a fan of the charcoal gray color on the dials for 5226G and 5326G. Love the hands and numerals on them, but not that dial color. The good news (for me) is of course that now I don't have to be on the waiting list for them! I'll buy the 5226G and/or 53... 

Yes, long term for sure..

 By: w220 : March 30th, 2022-15:28
As they say, for the next generation

 By: PaddyP : March 30th, 2022-13:40
I’m also not a fan of the two and prefer the 5224g with the non retro aging matte dial and travel time vs annual cal / travel. The only stand-out piece for me is the 5231g and some of the rare handcrafts.

 By: PaddyP : March 30th, 2022-17:42
I dream of the 5231g haha. I dreamt of the 5231j for two years or so and I will dream of that cloisonné dial again.. Nothing else compares for me 😎


 By: FabR : March 30th, 2022-17:45

Isn't it the 25th anniversary of Aquanaut this year ?

 By: Centurionone : March 30th, 2022-11:57
I am surprised there is no news from sports models

 By: PaddyP : March 30th, 2022-13:38
I’d imagine they don’t want to distract from the more traditional pieces today. I’m also assuming there is one but seems likely!

so many i would love to add!

Platinum 5230, WOW!

 By: MichaelC : March 30th, 2022-12:42
Thanks for posting the new models. Some lovely new choices to drool over


 By: gary01 : March 30th, 2022-12:45
Can you say Fauxtina, Longines and Hamilton?

Thank you FabR for this report!

 By: Time to watch : March 30th, 2022-13:47
Lots to ponder. Looking forward to next weeks report as well.

Thank you for this comprehensive report!

 By: BMR : March 30th, 2022-13:53
So many pieces that catch my eye here. Choosing which to request won’t be easy

Thank you, best lineup in a long time.

 By: NautNut : March 30th, 2022-14:09
I have already placed my requests (fingers crossed). No marquetry this year?

Wow! So much to see and process. And even some salmon-y goodness.

 By: BigAppleBill : March 30th, 2022-14:41
Looking forward to seeing these irl.

Thanks for posting - some very nice releases here.

 By: RussW : March 30th, 2022-18:45
Being able to change local time via the crown in the 5326 is a brilliant move. Also love the 5226.

Thanks Fab for staying up and reporting !

 By: GLau : March 31st, 2022-03:50
Naturally I love the enamel lion and 5231G ! Regular line-up is also quite strong.

Thank you so much for your consolidated report! That ellipse!!!

 By: Tchela1 : April 1st, 2022-01:20
I need to work on getting allocated! I’m a bit happy that Patek is focusing on other things than the Nautilus and Aquanaut line…

Indeed, and it looks like the GE Rare Handcrafts are the only ones authored by Anita Porchet this year, definitely a nice plus :-) Here's some further info, which we are (as usual :-) the first to break for collectors worldwide here on WPS! ;-)

 By: FabR : April 1st, 2022-01:54
First, and VERY interestingly, I believe that all 2022 Rare Handcraft references are a limited edition of 6 (six!) watches (note that Patek usually does not disclose this number, but this year I can give it to you officially). As for the Golden Ellipse, t...  


 By: FabR : April 1st, 2022-02:31

That is correct, the 5172G salmon dial is one of the new “regular” entries announced this year (it joins the original 5172G with a blue dial). The 2022 Rare Handcraft collection will be open to the public in Geneva from April 6 to 23…

 By: FabR : April 1st, 2022-03:50
…and for the first time, it will then be available for viewing in Paris, where I assume you might also see some of the latest in-catalog references (May 14 to 22, at Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré 85)👍🥂 Cheers.

Fab, many many thanks for your incredibly beautiful and informative photographic essay on the new releases. Also, for the many hours you devoted to responding to each and every reply

 By: patekova : April 14th, 2022-01:30
to your post. An extreme labor of love! I wanted to take some time to digest the new releases before responding. The watches that I find most interesting and/or appealing are: 1) 5326G which combines 2 extremely practical and complimentary complications i... 

Thanks for your kind words, and great to have your input on the new collection! It was obviously an intense two weeks, but it's always my sincere pleasure to present the new models live for our incredible members! Glad it was so well received.

 By: FabR : April 14th, 2022-02:53
Our beloved Patek forum is now entering a new and equally exciting phase, and as its moderator for WatchProSite, if necessary I will make an official announcement during the next few days. Also, since you mentioned an interest in viewing the newest releas... 

Thank you for your informative reply. I look forward to your announcement. Also, I will be on the lookout for an opportunity to view

the 2022 novelties in person. So thanks for bringing this to my attention.
