Many forum members have posted images of the newest cloisonné WT, the 5231J. Also many have posted 5131s, including the J. Which J do you prefer?
My take: Same land masses, but other than that, to me couldn’t be more different. Much more detailed and colorful map on the 5231, although colors are perhaps brighter and arguably more vibrant on 5131. Different hands on 5231 and Patek on the dial, not the bezel. Different fonts. Much more rounded and larger case on 5131. More angles and facets on 5231 case. To me more modern look on 5131, while 5231 resembles more vintage WTs, in case style, font and Patek on the dial.
So overall which I prefer ... 5231J.
(However, if it were 5231J vs 5131R or 5131G, not so sure. I like the size, wrist presence and feel of the 5131 case a lot. Also, I think generally the R and G maps on 5131 are very high quality much like the 5231J map. Also, having aPatek on the bezel of 5131 makes it truly different from all other Pateks that come to mind, vintage or modern.)
But, which do you prefer 5131J or 5231J? Best, Patekova
