Dress watch comparo: 5196p vs 5110p

Greetings - trying to find a platinum Patek that is thin (sub 10mm) and small diameter (37-38) which can be worn as a dress watch. I know the typical definition of a dress watch is a 2 or 3 hand (no date) very simple dial... and the World Time doesn't mee

Another incoming 6007A 👍
