Farewell 5235G

Mar 15, 2019,02:54 AM

Received a list a few days ago with many PP models out of production and within, noticed my 5235G on the list. Being an underrated Patek, not sure why people don't like it, could it be a regulator, too plain, I know - it's not a Nautilus. I have noticed all my friends who are into Patek will ONLY go for Nautilus and disregard all the other excellent timepieces by the House, how sad. I often ask myself, what if timepieces like 5960 or 5235 housed in a Nautilus case, that's will be something everyone wanted one and pushing up prices like the 5980. As soon as I saw this 5235G I love it and bought one in 2018, it's accurate and every time I wear it out, instant talking point because everyone knows of Nautilus only, and never realized that 5235G is the only regulator in PP models line-up. From now on, this piece will soon be forgotten except to those who owns one and treasure it like I do. Congrats to all the 5235G posts, I read them all..

Out of model line up but I will never forget this PP masterpiece, being the only movement ever made by Patek Philippe for the 5235G... Ian

This one will be in demand going forward, IMO.

The uniqueness in the lineup, paired with the movement equals rarity.

True a regulator movement in

the Nautilus case d be stunning ,actually I had a hope they make it but rather chose the PC.

I saw this timepiece many times in the past.

It just didn’t sing to me. I can assure you that it’s not because it is not in a Nautilus case. I believe I couldn’t get around reading a Regulator watch so I pass, even though it is indeed a unique watch of Patek mold. With its discontinuance and hopeful... 

i agree on your comments...

it is very unique in PP catalog today. it also have a specific movement in a very unusual frequency & the dial is sublime too. i like the watch very much - the only complaint i've on it is the date window location. Personally i would have preferred this w... 

One of the modern Pateks I like the most.

Probably the first Patek I would buy. Best Vte

Historically Unique

I think it is quite an interesting piece in that it has some relatively significant attributes: 1. Patek Regulator, that is rare. 2. Unique dial style and finish, seems rare compared to the rest of the line-up. 3. Special micro-rotor movement for just thi... 

Quick date change in 5235

I would point out that there are subtle but definite differences between the annual calendar module on 5235 and that present in the 324 cal. of my 5146 and other current Calatrava and Nautilus annual calendar references. Notably, the date change in 5235 i...

5235G and the 5960/1A. I bought both and glad I did...Jim

It is an advanced research piece by the way!

I got mine delivered in January just a few days before it was announced as discontinued! I travelled to get it a few weeks ago. It’s a sight for soar eyes. How it wears, the dimensions, how it sits on my wrist. The regulator is really special. The finishi... 

Probably would have been better

without the AC function.

You got two magnificent pieces there

Friends who claim to be into PP and only care for Nautilus or Aquanaut are not really into PP in my opinion. They are merely into those lineups. I think both of those you got are super special but I am quite into PP, sports ref or not both past and presen...
