5207P and 5207R

Jul 25, 2020,05:27 AM

Dear All, 

After recovering from the stress of an unscrupulous dealer stealing my photo of Grandmaster Chime and make a fake sales advertisement, I finally was able to enjoy and share my joy of a double wrist shot with These minute repeaters.  As mentioned previously in my post 


these pieces are family heirlooms and are to be enjoyed and not for sale.  Personally both Grand Complications (5207P and 5207R) are very charming because the dials are modern & clean with apertures and information is legible.  The black dial with rose case provides a stark contrast which makes it stands out whereas the platinum with champagne dial is so so lovely.  Of course, there are the minute repeater, instantaneous perpetual calendar (all calendar indications jump at midnight) and the discrete Tourbillon.  Although one is a platinum case, Patek Philippe minute repeater sounds are still the best!.  The side of the platinum is engraved to make up for the density.  And of course, the rose gold... πŸ₯°. Since I have two wrists, why not wear them both at the same time and keep comparing the sounds, right? πŸ˜‰

But I’m sure that has been made much easier being able to see, touch and most importantly hear those stunning examples of the art of Minute repeaters at its top top level. Enjoy and I hope they make you smile as much as they would me. M.

Don't stress about the Grand Master Chime and what happened with that unscrupulous dealer. We all know the truth anyways. Life is too short and precious to let negativity or negative people bring us down. Positivity will always win out in the end πŸ˜‰πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ™ ...

I’m glad your stress is over with the scammer. I see your car in the photo. Which chimes does it prefer? 😁

Thanks for sharing. Do you prefer the sound of the P or R?


 By: cbb in honor of Chamnong Bhirombhakdi : July 26th, 2020-03:59
I prefer the Rose gold a tad more. But Patek’s technology & craftsmanship make it super close!

So happy to see you back here CBB πŸ˜ƒ

You are a treasure to our forum! What a picture. Never seen before, to my knowledge! The very best part is how sincerely you enjoy and appreciate watches. It is very inspiring!

show your passion for Patek minute repeaters ! What an excellent double wrist shot ! πŸ‘ What would you say is the main difference in the sound between the rose gold vs platinum?

Rose sound

is a tad sweeter for me

Thanks for your first hand experience, Cbb,

Attended a minute repeater event by PP few years ago and heard the sound of several MRs. The watchmaker told us rose gold indeed has a better and louder sound, due to the lower density of rose gold, which is the best metal for sound transmission. While pl... 

Thanks cbb, if possible, please explain in what...

 By: GLau : August 4th, 2020-07:03
way is the sound from rose metal more sweet. Louder ? Softer to the ears ?

Sorry for the late response

Great to see a smile on your face and double GM repeaters, although i don’t think you cannot smile with those on the wrist!

Beautiful pieces, thank you for sharing this fabulous collection with us.

Wonderful pieces, dear cbb!

Although the Platinum version perhaps is more "quiet" (if you can say that at all with these wonderful pieces of art) I personally like the RG version more (although I generally prefer white metals) because of the matching date windows on the dial. I am a...
