That sky chart of Geneva (but you can reset it to any location of your choice) is simply stunning under the right light...I tried it on indoors first and honestly I wasn't as impressed, but then they took me outside under the sun and it is *truly* breathtaking! I'll see it again on Saturday in Milano, and I'll make a (difficult) decision then;-) Cheers

A wonderful Patek event last night at the Villa d'Este golf club....or in Boccadasse? :-)

 
 By: FabR : July 10th, 2019-06:11
Let me share with you my friends a few pictures of a typically spectacular Patek event, held last night at the Villa d'Este Golf Club, near Lake Como in Northern Italy... My favorite 5177G-010 'Boccadasse' (of the 2018 rare handcraft collection) joined my...  

Thank-You ;-) [nt]

Lovely event, lovely watches

Sadly the Belgian Patek dealers organize nothing here. Lake Como is big fun.

Thanks a lot my friend -- last night I was with my 'historic' AD from my hometown, but this was a golf-related event that several ADs from Northern Italy took part in with their clients...

I'm lucky to be around at a time of the year where these events normally take place down here, perhaps also due to the favorable weather. Hope they'll organize something similar also in your area, these parties are truly worth every minute Cheers

Looks like a great event...

And you don’t need to try other watches because the one you already had one beats all of the watches you tried imo. Have fun. And have a great summer!!!

I’ve just got to ask about the shoes Fab ...

blue shoes !! Please share information on them ! Did you see 5231 and what 2019 references did you like ?

Thanks a lot my friend, also on behalf of my new eels :-) ;-)

 
 By: FabR : July 10th, 2019-07:49
Nope, alas the 5231 is not part of the 'itinerant' collection that Patek Italia brings to these beautiful events... Actually, unlike other countries, the 5231 has yet to be delivered in Italy. But I'm really curious too to see one in the metal this summer... 

Looks spectacular

It is a magical piece

I had the opportunity to handle one at a Patek event last year... have not yet handled this years releases unfortunately Poor lighting on picture unfortunately... But the piece that stole the show for me was this one... ...

You just attained rock star status with that watch and shoes, Fabulous Fab πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

Thanks for sharing such nice event. Always fun to receive the nice gifts. That 5212A is going to be like any SS Patek watches where the wait list will be very long.

Thanks a lot my friendπŸ˜€πŸ˜‡The 5212 is indeed very sought after, I also have no doubt it will be released in small quantities with long lines at the door...

 
 By: FabR : July 10th, 2019-14:57
If the big success of the 5212 will ultimately translate into a renewed interest in the Calatrava line as a whole, then they really got this one right..πŸ˜‰

Huge thanks Fab for a great report!

Wonderful event Fab, what an experience. πŸ‘

Happy for you, my friend. Wonderful Calatrava enamel dial on your wrist. Hope to experience an event like this in the future. Cheers 🍻 πŸ˜‰ Geross

Thanks for sharing

You had a cool event. These stories are always nice to be read. There seemed to be several Nautilus models on display. I was wondering if those all were for sale or already preordered and to be delivered to the customers? As far as I have understood there... 

Thank you for looking. These models on display are just an 'itinerant' collection of pieces from the current catalog, which are showcased at the various events this summer...

 
 By: FabR : July 11th, 2019-01:50
Of course none of the watches was on sale, including the Nautilus, mainly to avoid fistfights between guests at the party... For all steel Pateks (and more and more other models), the waiting lists are unfortunately pretty insane ;-) Cheers.

That explains those watches on display

 
 By: Jari from Finland : July 11th, 2019-09:18
and of course it is much more pleasant to attend in the event without being "fistfighting" who may buy the Nautilus. LOL

Nice pictures

 
 By: watch-fan : July 15th, 2019-22:11
I like this picture a lot. I guess you are the only one wear this beautiful enamel watch in the event. nice gift ...  

Thanks my friend -- Yep, expectedly I was the only one with Boccadasse on the wrist, though not the only one with a rare handcraft, as I could spot at least a couple of beautiful 5131s...

 
 By: FabR : July 16th, 2019-02:24
Very nice golf-related gifts for me and my girlfriend (except that in the women's bag there was no cap). Now, after many years, thanks to Patek I might finally decide to wear a polo! Cheers.
