Smoggy Sky and Smokey Dial....

Mother Nature is raging...some say it’s Karma, some say it’s climate change, some say it’s stupidity induced, and some say it’s policy....

Humans....can we just reasonable and have common sense what is the right thing to do? Ok...right or wrong is also subjective, never mind....I'm clueless anyways.

After x tens of years, we all looks the same like a pile of skeletons, whom no one will know who you are when you’re alive.

Meanwhile, let me enjoy my moment of happiness.

Back to watches, any experts know why Patek Philippe uses 4N instead of 5N on some RG cases? I know some ladies model are but why?

Yes I know it's different alloy composition but still unclear why PP is using less rosier gold for ladies model is my question. Their advertisement only says Rose Gold. Thanks for the link...now we'll see if Robin will help to compare Rolex 904L vs 316 SS... 

That’s a great retrieval Fab, and a nice post Robin.

This very Patek has been the only one outside of the WT which has interested me in the last few years. But I was going for the smaller case, as you see here. The reason I don’t own it is that specific choice of 4N over 5N. It’s amazing how many points of ... 

Nice!!!

Holy Smokes!! No pun intended...but that is quite a catch!! Love the 5524!! I’m still on Tiffany’s list for getting one. Wow!!

Thanks a lot my friend....this is actually the 7234R-001.

You're on the waiting list?!?!? No way....you're teasing me. I think they got your list reversed, difficult ones first, easier ones later ) This was displayed in their salon when I visited last Oct.

Couldn’t tell...

Couldn’t tell this was a 7234R...looks good on ur wrist regardless. Yeah...somehow my list is so long that they probably started with the difficult ones first and work their way back. Looking forward to my allocation, may have to wait till 2021 since I th... 

I actually think it might have been. I went in right when it arrived, but without seeing it unsealed I couldn’t make my mind up.

I did subsequently see a non T dial unsealed and from that I was able to make a determination. I’m holding out for a regular production steel or white gold in this same case size.

Right after we got it we went to Wempe on Fifth and there’s another one sitting in the display...

I got the croc strap for this and it makes it more dressy. I doubt there will be a regular steel version, only the Singapore Grand Exhibition 7234A which I think the market asking is reasonable.

This is one cool travel companion, my friend!

And great shots of it too! Congrats, and enjoy it on many new paths. Daniel

Yes, Daniel. It is nice to have a travel watch, even without much travelling for now.

I just love to play with the forward/backward buttons when I'm bored Raymond

The size looks look 👀 good on your wrist !

What size is your watch ?

This was mainly for my wife and I already have the 40mm 5522A but it’s a good size both can share 👍🏻

 
 By: Clueless_Collector : September 16th, 2020-06:21
My wrist is about 17cm and 37.5mm works. Thanks Justin.

Yes I know this was the smaller 37.5mm pilot Raymond. I think fits your wrist really well...

I know you also have the 5522 but the case is slightly different as well and it does not have the pushers on the side so a different look on the wrist. My wrist size is around 6 1 /2 - 6 5/8" so slightly smaller than yours. That was why I thought that if ... 

Other than the straps being a little narrow for my liking, I think it's a nice size...

Actually I'm very tempted to get the Singapore version 7234A too. The price appreciation is quite acceptable as compared to the other Singapore red Aquanauts and the red 5930G WT.
