Green Envy - Patek Philippe 5971P

Jun 29, 2020,07:41 AM

Dear All, 

It has been a while since I last posted.

Since this year was a Leap Year, one might not know that my late dad was a Leap Year boy! He was born on Wednesday, Feb 29th and had a β€œreal” birthday only every four years.  He always teased us that he was younger than us because he had the right to count his age every 4 years πŸ˜‚

Being a Wednesday boy, his favorite color was green!  But then again... he also love other colors as well...hence a complete set of 5971P, diamond, ruby, sapphire and emerald.

Lovely pictures of your late father’s collection! I’m sure he will be proud of the passion you have for his watches as well. Too many times I’ve seen collections auctioned off by family members whom do not share the same horological β€œgene” and instead pri...

I would like to know if you know why the ruby 5971 is the only one with a red counter hand? Is it a different series comparing to the other 3?
