Rare Advanced Research bird…

Apr 08, 2023,03:10 AM

Even in our forum, I find it surprising there are currently 3 or less owners of this 5235/50R.

I’m sure there are more R owners who are just shy and more 5235G owners.

From what I read, this model is one of the handful that uses the Pulsomax, and is the only serially produced model that uses Silinvar parts from the Advanced Research department, like Spiromax, Gyromax and Pulsomax.

Even the latest 5236P, 5326G which both based on 31-260 does not include them.

I really like the case profile, similar to wonder watch 3448/3450, plus I think the movement finishing of the 31-260 regulator is of higher quality than some models of comparable range.

Happy to share this special watch.

Enjoy and Happy Good Friday.

Great indeed…

…and you say it: one of the best movements… ...  

Yes and you’re one of the pioneers here…I read most posts about this watch in the forum.

 By: Clueless_Collector : April 8th, 2023-03:25
I also noticed the same misalignment of the minute hand to the marker on top of the 60-sec mark after setting it, takes a while for it to go off but oh well… Enjoy yours.

Suffice to say....

This watch was the choice of birthday (71st) gift to himself for my former billionaire client. That he would choose that exact timepiece, given how he could have easily had any other, speaks volumes to its distinctive appeal! Great images, thanks for shar... 

That’s very good to know I have similar tastes and thoughts of a billionaire 😅

I appreciate you sharing the story, Filip, made my day 🙏🏻

Here are a couple of pictures of the G version.

The R version is nicer looking IMO. Sometimes it’s better to be late to the party. Best, V. ...  

The G version was haunting me for a long time…

 By: Clueless_Collector : April 8th, 2023-05:21
Both are winners and special. You can also get this R version, the way like you get both 5231s 😉🙌🏻👍🏻💪🏻

When this first came out in the WG version , I was very keen to get one . It took almost2 years after they released at Baselworld before it was available to the general public.

Not much demand from collectors but there were a few of use here on the forum who all got one. I thin kits is one of the best offerings from PP in recent history I love mine although I don't wear it as much as I should A few pics to add to the ones posted...  

I heard there were issues in the beginning but finally got it resolved, as they always do.

 By: Clueless_Collector : April 8th, 2023-05:26
It is a sharp looking watch. Enjoy it and happy to see more fellow versions coming out to shine. Cheers 🥂

That version....

 By: InHavenPro : April 8th, 2023-06:41
is definitely my favorite.... Thanks for the pictures, Filip

Your last photo brings out the contrast of the subdials too 👍🏻

 By: Clueless_Collector : April 8th, 2023-14:49
I thought many commented the contrast wasn’t that significant but it actually is….yeah I really like this G as well. Thanks for sharing too.


 By: amanico : April 8th, 2023-20:23

Yes and I’m pleasantly surprised.

 By: Clueless_Collector : April 8th, 2023-14:50

Please add one more to the owner tally

 By: brandon.c : April 8th, 2023-07:32
Great photos! I absolutely love my 5235R. I also own the 5236P but I find that even though the 5235R may lack a little in horological firepower, it has some charm points that are all its own. In particular, I like how the watch deconstructs time and gives...  

Hi there! Good to see another one. You have great taste 😊

 By: Clueless_Collector : April 8th, 2023-14:52
I would love to own a 5236P like you some day. Congrats to own both. Cheers 🥂

Stunning macros!

Congratulation Clueless! Wow well done on you.

 By: jlc.thomsen : April 8th, 2023-08:40
You’re not alone with your fascination of this model. I remember seeing it at the AD when it came out in red gold. Apart from the advanced research dep movement, the finishing with the brushed satin and the subdued Patek Logo (amazing you see it then you ... 

I saw it in 2019 but went with the 7234R instead..,,

 By: Clueless_Collector : April 8th, 2023-15:07
Maybe this subconscious part of my brain calling since and now I got it. It is good to see some different layouts and designs on how to read time. Thank you 🙏🏻


 By: jlc.thomsen : April 9th, 2023-12:33
Do you still have the 7234?

Yes I do…here’s a photo taken this past week

No it’s not.

I think the 42mm version would just be too massive. Especially in red gold.

Thanks for sharing these gorgeous photos!

 By: singingbee : April 8th, 2023-08:57
This is one stunning piece, I especially like the case and movement!

You’re very welcome, my pleasure.

I could not decide between the WG or RG. Both are beautiful. Finally chose the first gen, and WG is more versatile. ...  

Looks 💯🤩🤩🤩

 By: Patekfinity : April 8th, 2023-13:39
Watch is perfect size for your wrist. The case is modern with an unbelievable movement. Congrats all around!! Wear it in good health!

40.5mm is a good size, and glad to see the movement fills up the space.

Thanks a lot, my friend. Happy to own this gem, while many others go for sports 😉😬

Thanks for sharing R! I always thought there

 By: Darron : April 8th, 2023-17:18
Are 3 apertures at the top; but this configuration is unique.

The 5207/8, 5205, 5960s, 5905s all have 3 apertures at the top …

This is good and fits my no redundant theme. ...  

That is good to know you haven’t give up, at least on this reference 😬

 By: Clueless_Collector : April 8th, 2023-19:39
These are still under the radar and under appreciated so get it earlier is a good idea 👍🏻 Thanks Justin.

Just a reminder.. 🍻

I was just reading up about the 5350 advanced research and pateks research in developing Spiromax, Gyromax and Pulsomax based on silinvar so these pics and post are great. I did not know that the "regulator" watch was the only regular production watch tha... 

You’re welcome….neither do I till I decided to get it.

I’m actually ok with some this minor irregularities on a Brushed surface

I still didn’t see any alarming signs and it could be my photos or dirty surfaces but Thanks for your input 🙏🏻

Even their stock photos are not even 😅

This case wears very well

 By: chk : April 13th, 2023-05:39
There are so many 'new' things about the 5235 that wearability gets a little bit left out. Good day, chk

Yes it does and good thing for some who notices the hidden gems.

 By: Clueless_Collector : April 13th, 2023-15:22
Thank you chk 🙏🏻

Amazing Photos - thank you

That’s where the inspiration is from 👍🏻🙌🏻💪🏻

Always a pleasure to see the wonder watch appearing here. Cheers 🍻
