Thank you & Clarification
Thank you for the advice and insights regarding the 5575. I placed the order yesterday. No clear insight on delivery but I have been guaranteed the watch. I was told my AD will only get one and some ADs will get none.
I do want to clarify..when I mentioned premium in my original post...I was speaking only of the premium Patek is asking for the 5575 vs the 5130. My AD has never asked for a premium on the price. Sorry for the confusion.

Thoughts on the 175th anniversary pieces
I have an opportunity to pick up a 5575G, Have a couple of other choices....but the World Timer is appealing to me. I am struggling a bit with the thought of paying a premium because it is an anniversary watch. I have not been collecting long and I am won...
The watch is great but... due to the production numbers, in my opinion, the story of Patek is only in vintage watches (real state of art and rare watches)! You will own simply a great great watch!
I was also given a choice last week. I was only allowed to choose one. I chose the 5975G !!!! Simply ecstatic :) Awaiting delivery, since the certificate will arrive pre-printed with the name of the buyer from HSWA. Thanks Patek for such an awesome watch!...
thank goodness my AD charged MSRP
The 5496P-001 does not have blue tint anywhere in the dial? Perhaps the newer one?
It is the 5496 P - 001 that showed a sky blue dial
I am familiar with Pateks and it was the 5494 P that I saw in the window. The explanation is: the AD deliberately or accidentally created the very, very light blue on the dial by positioning it under the halogen lights. I believe Patek has had this effect...
Hi Da BaBa, I tried 5575 on today and...
it looked great overall especially with the curved side and no crown guard, thus making it very different than 5130 !! A bit difficult to read time because of the black background but a great complication with the large and realistic looking moon When you...
I've been proposed as well but,
Moscow time is wrong - and this reason stopped me... Sad, very sad. It's not Patek fault - it's russian stupid decision to change the winter time two years ago. Despite this - definitely great watch.
HI EDJA, it is a shame that the
time zone for Moscow is wrong, but… IMO, this watch is not about reading the right time!! Not for me anyway !! To me, 5575 is a piece of history with useful and innovative complications. Most collectors only have one or two chances within their lives to b...
Hi EDJ, I fully understand your point which is ...
...a personal choice, your decision. Although you had a "very sadly disappointment", at least the Patek sponsored concert in Singapore hopefully cheered you up a bit. Cheers, Gordon If this time zone problem happened to me for HK / China, I would pretend ...
It's a beautiful and unique timepiece!
After discussing with multiple AD's, the trend is basically a very limited allocation. Names are submitted to the distributor and certificates are preprinted with the name of the buyer prior to shipment. Therefore, chances of a second opportunity to be as...
The most prominent ones received one of each to allocate. I can assume that not every AD was given this opportunity.
Thanks Gordon . Based on your analysis, I can just imagine how difficult is it for the 5975 series allocation!

You have done well Da BaBa !! Congrats on the 5575.
Happy to hear that the AD is not charging you a premium. The premium of the 5575 compared to 5130 is significant and can be "justified' because 1) it has the moon phase complication which is worth something, 2) it contains a new and attractive BIG moon, a...
