Hi cbb, please continue to post your dad's, your family's and your collection ! No matter how huge or how humble one's collection is, IMO sharing (our horological passion)...
is caring !!
I for one like seeing the rare pieces being worn by your father because they are being enjoyed.

Wow indeed .
Thanks for sharing. Something you don’t see everyday
a true leader & great respects...
he have transformed lifes of many people with his work in Thailand...i saw the respect Thai people hold for his work, i've seen it first hand... of course speaking about him there is no way to miss his passion of watches...inspirational personality ! Than...
I love when you post pictures of your father, CBB
it is easy to sense that he had true passion. My favorite picture is the last of them, where he is pointing at his watch, in front of the open Leica catalogue. He seems to me, to have been a remarkable person
What a great post...
it is always such a pleasure reading one of your posts, especially if it contains some photos or anecdotal stories of your father. It just makes things more personal and sentimental. Thanks again for sharing.
It means a lot as I really want people to know that he was person of real watch passions
And that passion was
Clearly passed down to you and it looks like you are nurturing it in your children. That is wonderful. But also wonderful that you share these experiences and pictures. Your family’s journey with Patek is a rare one. You have hands on experience through o...
Are we impressed by the watches or the cost?
My question is, do you LIKE his watches? I do not. I understand they were outrageously expensive. But do you like them? Does this aspect matter to you? I am not trying to 'hijack' the thread but... can we be candid? Do we have to automatically love this m...
Actually I do like the watches.
Sometimes watches are more artistic endeavors. These particular watches, as I may be falsely understanding, are meant to showcase multiple areas of craftsmanship that all reside under the house of Patek. The design intent is showcase, not daily beater. Ca...
I’m not trying to brag
I simply want to show a man’s ( my late father ) true passion and not collecting watches for profit like so many people do now. He genuinely appreciate the artesian, the craftsmanship of time pieces. It’s HIS hobby and he did within his own means and his ...
I would guess that you are one of two out of seven having both these references (you and the Patek museum) 👏😋 but maybe I’m wrong.
Maybe 1 of 7?
I figured, anyone who is lucky enough to own the GMC is a true Patek fan and hence, would most probably own the 6002 too 💖
It definitely shows passion 👏👌
I had the chance to try them both on at the salon and they are definitely wonderful but i still feel they are to big ...
Thank you so much!
This means a lot to me that you really understand my reason for the posts! Thank you
Any great time pieces
To me, are to be worn & enjoy and not to be saved in banks or vaults not to be seen.
The big man himself just loved Patek Philippe.....
He may have been a billionaire..... He may have revolutionised the Thai beer industry...... He may have had a good life...... But the 1 thing he loved most was PATEK PHILIPPE. He was a very nice guy (I breifly met him over 15 years ago). Just a love for a...
I super enjoyed my 6002G but have now sold it for an upgrade 🙀 cannot wait! By the way i’m new here, but pleasure to meet you. All the way from London, United Kingdom 🇬🇧
