I am very happy to be posting some pictures of my newly arrived 5330G Tokyo special edition. The purple dial is quite colorful under direct lighting, but becomes more discreet at other times.

The date complication is well done, as expected from Patek Philippe. The glass hand looks great, and the date changing when crossing the international date line as well as when crossing midnight is fantastic. 

I’m a little surprised the new movement is based on the 240 instead of the newer 31-260, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see that change in future versions of the 5330. 

Having a Tokyo-themed Patek ranks pretty high on my wishlist and it is as if they read my mind with the choice of color and overall design for this release.  I’m very happy to have received an allocation.

very nice watch !! One question, are you based in Japan or could you get it from another area / country ?

I am a local

I live in Japan and all of my Pateks have been purchased while living here. It is my understanding that this model was only available to Japanese residents.

That's what i also understood

It looks gorgeous on your wrist. As you said, the date complication is exceptional. Though looks simple, it is actually made of a thin yet perfectly straight piece of glass. The date hand will also move according to the time zone selected. I just managed ...

When I first saw this watch in the display case at the Grand Exhibition I was a bit disappointed as the dial appeared almost black. However, on the wrist the plum color comes through and I appreciate the darker shade being easy to match with different out... 

Beautiful, congratulations!

i really...

..dislike the transparent date pointer. it does look cheap and out of place. i am afraid that this will show up in the next gen non-limited WT as well.

The hand mostly disappears when looking head-on

 By: brandon.c : September 9th, 2023-03:54
While in normal lighting I can't make out the hand when viewing from the angle of the wrist-shots I posted. The lighting of the showroom does make it more visible, and it is readily visible when looking at an angle. Personally, I quite like it - but I can...

Huge congrats!

This is THE world timer! The color is great and the date function is the missing part on other world timers that make it perfect!! I hope there will be other iterations of the movement but yours is the grail!! 👍
