Thanks Nico, gemsetting is indeed a real art, and a very challenging one to master --- it's unsurprising but nonetheless remarkable that Patek is at the very top also in this domain! ;-) Cheers.

when I look at these, I at once marvel at the craftsmanship, yet disdain the 'flashiness' of this type of design.... A mixed batch of thoughts and feelings.... Thanks for the pics Fabrizio, Filip
Those are completely mesmerizing.

The way I tend to see it, one can pull it off (regardless of their sex - male, female and in between x) only if their sensibilities are such that they minimize absolutely everything about their presentation except the watch itself.... Then, in my mind, it...

due to my current line of work, I've found myself 'rubbing shoulders' with a few billionaires on a frequent basis, and I can tell you that 'your typical billionaire' (whatever that might mean), would never sport something along these lines on a frequent b...

NOT with something like that on their wrist hawhawhaw.... The contract doesn't include a clause where it's OK to deliberately increase liability 300% .... The previous person I worked with bought a $50K Patek for his 72nd birthday.... The one I currently ...

My favorite part is the clasp! I especially like the clasp! I've been thinking about this clasp since I saw the 5971!

Amusing comment Patrick!

I think I would quite fancy just having the buckle jeweled, and the watch 'standard-issue' .... That way, in my mind, you get the best of both worlds! Cheers, Filip
My strange logic...
By: patrick_y : November 16th, 2022-14:59
My strange logic is that I would probably be more likely to scratch the clasp while typing on the computer. Therefore, to have diamonds on the clasp is practical, since diamonds are scratch resistant! Besides, I always like a coat to have the fur lining o...

My favorite buckle is the 5160G buckle. It reminds me of the engravings of a Purdey gun. I'm very much a sweater person. I do like my wool and cashmere sweaters. I'm not big on scarves yet - I find that Europeans really know how to wear scarves and I find...
Ahh. I didn't know the buckle was G.
By: patrick_y : November 17th, 2022-00:41
A lot of brands do the buckle in white gold with a platinum cased watch. But didn't know that was going on in this specific case.
Ahh! Got it!

Thank you for correcting my confusion! It's a special piece!
By: FabR : November 17th, 2022-00:20
Beautiful pieces. Just not for me.
By: socal to az : November 16th, 2022-02:28
With my lifestyle I just don’t see any instances where I can wear one of these. But they are gorgeous. (And expensive!)
You know what....
By: InHavenPro : November 16th, 2022-04:03
those jeweled cufflinks are 'to-die-for'! That, I would get in a heartbeat ....
Now, that's an impressive selection!
By: InHavenPro : November 16th, 2022-04:38
I wasn't even aware of the assortment on offer.... Thanks for sharing the links, when I was at the boutique in Beverly Hills last summer, they had absolutely none ....
As an aside

I find the Patek product photography fairly ugly. The backgrounds and some of the angles are really unpleasant to look at.
Cute : )

By: andrea~ : November 16th, 2022-06:23
...those 5271s are incredible! If I could, I would rock them without question. Owning both would be amazing, switching from blue to red depending on your mood.

Spectacular gem setting….
By: Cpt Scarlet : November 16th, 2022-09:05
Firstly, thank you Fab for sharing this with us on the forum. The watches look spectacular, the quality of the design and gem setting is outstanding. Best regards Captain
Thank you for this post, Fab.
By: COUNT DE MONET : November 16th, 2022-13:45
I love diamonds on time pieces anyway and feel that these are some of the best looking in the market. A "standard" black dialed 5270P is already a spectacular watch but these here are from out of this world!
By: NautNut : November 16th, 2022-16:09
Are the clasps available for purchase?
I like how you're thinking!
By: patrick_y : November 16th, 2022-18:53
Unfortunately, generally, they don't make the clasps available on their own.
well it has your name written on it I am afraid...
By: keks : November 16th, 2022-17:21
As I recall 6300 being a favorite of yours FabR.... the gem set one would be even better for you is my take. I would think the blue one.... Personally I would not mind walking around with the red 5271, what a stunning piece with the red dial to complement...
