My first Patek (and request for strap recommendations)

Nov 21, 2022,23:49 PM

Hi everyone, just picked up my first Patek - a 5212A. I've been chasing this since it released, and finally took the big step! Looking for strap recommendations, please post any interesting combos you have seen with this reference

To compliment the dial I’d go for a navy blue strap, alligator or suede

The utility of the weekly calendar is underrated. I find it especially useful while planning and estimating projects

Thanks! It was between this and the 5235G

Might still add that at some point

Congratulations, it’s a beauty.

I think the 5172G strap works well. ...  

Amazing combo 👌

Until my AD lost their Patek status so I turned to the secondary market

Blue and original

I used to have it on a blue strap but came back to the original one recently ...

Thanks for the ideas

Red looks better than I had expected

Looks nice!

I believe Tim Mosso has a review of a 5212 on black alligator where he says he thinks that is a better fit than calfskin

A few different blue options I’ve tried with it.

Congratulations on the acquisition. It’s a fantastic watch in my opinion. So easy to wear with virtually anything and always looks great. Enjoy it thoroughly! ...  

Thank you!

Yours looks great too. The textured black strap you posted is quite interesting, makes me think if the 5226 strap would work too
