A few words about the Patek Philippe Calatrava 5296 Limited Edition Hausmann

 
 By: foversta : August 29th, 2021-11:11
The Patek Philippe boutique in Rome has quickly become one of the most popular locations on Via Condotti since its opening in 2019. Located on the former site of the Hausmann multi-brand boutique, it is of course managed by the retailer's team. The recept...  

Agreed but acceptable for a commemorative edition

For once, I prefer the coloured gold version

Me too!

Yes, but still....

👍Totally fine, we don’t all like the same pieces👍🥂

In fact, the ones I LOVED the most here were the two pieces unique in enamel (featuring Piazza di Spagna e Castel Sant’Angelo), but alas, no way for me to receive one (they went to the Museum)😉Cheers.

I can’t live with the Roman XII and on top the white date window disturbing this beautiful dial. Best Thomas

The Roman numeral XII makes perfect sense given where the store is located !

Whether collectors like this design is another issue. Personally I am quite like the “XII” because it differentiates this reference from the regular production in a “clever” way while paying homage to Rome. Between the blue and grey dials, I need to see t... 

Thanks for the live pics and the beautiful review FX! The Hausmann boutique deservedly received a number of special editions for their opening two years ago, which VERY interestingly also included these two *unique* enamel pieces...

Below is the post I wrote for WPS....how much would I LOVE one of those two Rare Handcrafts for my own collection! Patek Philippe - A virtual visit to Rome () Ref. 5089G-081 Ref. 5089G-082 ...

promoter and “living sculpture” with one of these marvels… ☺️

Understandable.

Oh, isn't it Castel Sant'Angelo! It was the setting for TOSCA, Puccini's wonderful opera.

That's what Patek does smartly. It ’s a pride that only the selected venerable dealers are allowed to do.

Indeed, Piazza di Spagna and Castel Sant'Angelo are two of the most iconic symbols in the heart of Rome -- being dedicated two unique Rare Handcrafts with such special themes certainly does not happen to all ADs! ;-)

I believe that not even my friends at Pisa (not the city but the family from Milano! ), the only other (and the first) Boutique in Italy, were bestowed upon some Rare Handcrafts on the occasion of their opening...though I know they were able to negotiate ...  

Thank you for the heads up.

I just sent an email to the boutique to see what is still available.

I definitely remember the Hausmann boutique on Via Condotti.

I remember almost buying a 5127G there over a decade ago. Kind of regret not having bought it. This limited edition is done well. While the dial might not be to everyone's tastes, the addition of the deployant buckle was a smart move. Hausmann has had a f...
