Million dollar dial:The unique 5196 quartet

May 11, 2022,15:21 PM

The OAK collection features 3 and opens at the Design Museum in London on the 19th May

The unique collection features a yellow gold and rose gold based on the original 570 pieces

I also now found the elusive 5196p with blue dial (credit Robb Report)

The final is my friend salmon dial

Old and new together

Vintage inspired 

The unique 5196p salmon 

The black Breguet numerals and salmon also inspired by a vintage 96

The “regular “ 5196p isn’t exactly undesirable!!!

I was reading about the OAK Collection. The 'unique' or 'one of a kind' collecting philosophy of Mr Getreide is quite remarkable and fortunately done at the right period of time. Unfortunately I think brands are now less inclined to make unique/one of a k...

...but Patek kept putting it in large cases and even rectangular cases...kind of bothered me.

I like the 5196P - it is a beautiful reference, but...
