Salmon is the new blue

Nov 30, 2018,07:28 AM

I have always loved salmon dials.

They are always different from watch to watch, but also change depending on angle:sunshine/...

Until last year had no salmon dials in my collection.
In january finally received my Kari Voutilainen Vingt-8.
And now just in about 10days, two watches of Patek Philippe added to my collection.

All 3 are very different but oh so charming.
The case of the 5101, just totally smitten about it, could look at it indefinitely - the perfect art deco case.
The case of the Vingt-8 for me is the best rounded case out in the market, these lugs are to die for.
And the perpetual calendar chrono no words needed.

And now time for some pictures

I would have been extremely surprised if you would not have chime in Top notch trio as well my friend ! I am wondering which one of the three could be my favourite, very hard to say but I have a soft spot for your DB as you know Hagwe R. Mike

All great, Voutilinen dial work is just incredible. Was able to handle a few of them at Salon QP along with the privilege to hear about them from the Kari himself.

Of note, he was extremely generous with his time to me and others stopping to take a look. Many of them were completely new to the brand and probably not necessarily in his target given their questions---but he was patient and thoughtful in his responses ... 

Seriously. Wow! [nt]

I have a soft spot for the 5270, but could live with the other two as well πŸ˜‰ Btw, I'm loving more and more salmon dials lately and don't know why.

Any of the 3 is a feast for the eyes, but having such a trio is simply gorgeous, awesome, lucky you Alex

Really impressive trio you have here WOW ! Wear them in the best of your health and enjoy them (I am sure you do ) Cheers, Mike

KV salmon dial is perfect

Both Pateks look really flat and dull compared to it. Hopefully, better in person.

Awesome trio Alex...maybe another lunch in Paris soon??

Would love to see that KV Vingt-huit and PP 5101 as I am also looking for the Vingt-huit but different dial color. Will send you a text

5101P Wowzer

Probably the most stunning Patek ever made. Every time I see that watch my heart skips a beat! The subsequent variants never got close to the original Wowzer You lucky sod.
