5905a- It’s Here

Jul 22, 2022,22:51 PM
 

I’m am quite smitten by this piece.  As I posted previously, this was my wish list piece after the Patek Geneva HQ trip.  It’s everything I imagined for the steel version of the 5905.


Having previously owned the blue platinum version, this one is miles ahead in terms of presence, legibility and appeal.  The green dial is spectacular.  Just the right amount of bling.

It’s very comfortable.  The bracelet is much better than my 5980 as it doesn’t trap arm hair or skin.  Great watch for poolside or a day out.  I’m a bit concerned about scratches but I guess that goes with the territory.  

The two tone bracelet is similar to my wife’s twenty-4.  Very comfortable and stylish.  The middle low lugs are satin while the outside ones are polished.

Thanks for letting me share!

Here is the wrist shot

Let me know if you want some other angles. This is not a small watch. But I’m 6’4” and ideally prefer watches in the 42mm range. I’m getting used to 41 but anything smaller I just don’t buy. It’s impossible to capture the colors properly with an iPhone. N...  

An excellent choice and a true beauty.

I had the platinum version but sold it when I got my 5270. Figured I didn’t need two dress watches. Congrats. ...  

Congrats!

I must admit that when I first saw it in pictures the bracelet put me off. However, when I had the opportunity to try it recently my mine was completely changed and I’ve placed an order - so now the impatient waiting has begun In my opinion, the bracelet ...  

Looks great on your wrist.

That looks great.

Never thought to put ina. Rubber strap. How hard is it to remove the bracelet?

Little bit difficult

 
 By: Adriano1 : July 30th, 2022-20:02
But worth it! There is a small piece inside the bracelet that goes inside the case. ...  

Very cool

I’m just gonna stick to the bracelet. Used to have a 5905P blue dial so I’ve had this piece on a strap.

I am thinking to put on leather strap for mine, too.

Can you show me the photos of that small pieces that go into the case? Is it tricky to remove it? Thanks

Will do when I’ll be back from holidays

 
 By: Adriano1 : August 4th, 2022-17:58
It’s not so tricky, just surprise why it was a little bit difficult. If you know it before it will be easier 😉

Thanks

Not sure I’d say the 5905p is lacking presence however. ...  

Love the 5905

Owned one for years and then sold it when I got my 5270. Figured I’d never need two dress watches and 5905p would not get much wrist time over 5270. What I mean by lacking presence is that it’s more of a subtle elegance. Not a knock on the watch by any me...
