5124G - Blue or Salmon dial?

Jan 13, 2020,17:34 PM
 

I’ve decided to buy a Patek 5124G and the white gold variant of the 5124 comes in both salmon or blue dial. I am undecided and not sure what to get. The blue dial is slightly more attractive to me, but I’m hesitant to buy it as it has a very similar appearance color scheme wise to the 5327G blue dial that I eventually plan to buy.

Blue or Salmon?

Blue:












Salmon:












5327G I plan to buy...afraid the 5124G blue dial won’t offer enough color diversity in my collection with the 5327G as well that has the same color case and same dial color as the blue 5124G:

Tough choice...

...but both are extremely elegant, seldom-seen, and completely under the radar.

You have to pick!! [nt]

OK...I'll go with blue...

...as the salmon mimics the 5101P tourbillon but is not on that level. Besides, I've seen the blue in person and it's beautiful. Not too concerned about legibility in a watch of this style.

Get both

They're the same model technically but are a world of difference (hands, hour indices, dial), and both come with jaw-droppingly good looking and colour matching straps. In all honesty (albeit also very personal) I would say the 5124x2 combo beats the 5124... 

I can only choose one. [nt]

You really can’t go wrong with either

Given your other Patek, I suppose Salmon

Both in ...blue.

Salmon for me

Not only do I like it the best, the blue dial also reminds me too much of the Reverso tribute small seconds (ref Q3978480). Nothing wrong with that design, but it belongs better with JLC in my opinion. ...  

Your opinion matters! [nt]

I prefer the salmon, though I’m sure either will be a great addition and will make you very happy!

Blue

As for colour diversity, you will only wear one watch a time! Thomas

Not a difficult choice for me 😉

Salmon it is 🤗

Blue is top

More elegant. Salmon looks old, numerals cheap.

For me the salmon dial.

A very special and good looking watch from PP.

Salmon - all the way...

Why? While I DO like the shade of the blue dial, it's difficult to see in various lighting situations. The salmon is VERY easy to read in all but very dark situations. Plus, the Breguet numerals in black with the matching dial and strap are just delicious... 

Salmon

It’s a beautiful color. Have your AD order you a chocolate brown strap (104 is the strap code) and it looks amazing! I’m not a fan of the honey strap that comes on it.

I prefer the salmon.

Lovely watch!
