The night 5370P

No words needed as I’m still collecting my jaw

This is what sex on a strap looks like

A truly wonderful piece

Congratulations 🥳

Thank you but it’s not mine 😔

But pleasurable experience nonetheless

It looks perfect on your wrist!

Way too large for me when I tried it on at the Patek Salon two weeks ago. Well done on acquiring a sublime watch!

Thanks Sham

It’s for a friend of mine

A magnificent beauty for sure

I wish I could claim it’s ownership specially as mentioned it has been discontinued

If this is 38-39mm

and without Lume hands, this will be my ultimate grail. Right now my grail Patek is either 3448, 5959 or 5004. 2499 is non achievable.

I tried this on (a friend's watch)...

and for me it was at the edge of the size I prefer to wear. But it was perfectly acceptable on my 7.25" wrist. And it is indeed a beauty : )

I envy your wrist size :-)

 By: CL : February 10th, 2020-15:38
If I have a 7.25" wrist, many contemporary watches will be perfect size for me. Even the vintage small watches will look good and refine on a big wrist. Sigh.

The 5959 is fantastic, but like the 5950 (my grail) I have not seen one in person.

 By: mdg : February 10th, 2020-15:55
I don't mind wearing 'small' watches, but I do value thin watches, or at least those that have an appropriate hight to width ratio. Some of the older complications are very thick imho....too much for a 'dress' watch. When spending this kind of $ it is alw... 

5959 please [nt]

amazing, true grail

 By: Gelato Monster : February 10th, 2020-15:40
its not single its multiple on a strap

Not everyone’s grail.

Change the dial and hands and there you have a grail. Good job we all hunt different grails. Great case and movement though. Hope your friend finds years of pleasure with his watch. M.

It's spoiled by it's size ;(

I really wanted to love this piece and have tried it on multiple times... but it just doesn't fit well on my wrist. A 47mm Greubel Forsey looks better on my wrist than this 5370P... it's just an unusual fit. If it was 2mm smaller with an improved lug desi... 

Maybe a 5204 would fit you better

 By: Mohannad (aka Riddler) : February 11th, 2020-00:17
It’s thicker but smaller diameter


 By: Jurry : February 11th, 2020-03:35
Now you’ve got me because there are only 2-3 Patek models I really like and this is one of them. If I’m not mistaken this one still has the Lemania movement doesn’t ? It looks stunning. I know of only one brand who has such a similar real black dial with ... 

Thank you for looking [nt]

5204 is great but the thickness and case size

 By: Mohannad (aka Riddler) : February 11th, 2020-09:05
Make it feel a bit stacked and weird looking on my wrist

I have to agree [nt]

 By: Langeholic : February 13th, 2020-23:10

Have you seen them side by side in the metal?

 By: Langeholic : February 13th, 2020-23:10
I made this assumption too when I looked at them in pictures, but found a world of difference in the metal. The 5370P has a lot of wrist presence as well as intricate details that one only appreciates in person.

The black enamel dial and the finishing of 5370P is completely different to the 5170

 By: DOCSF : February 11th, 2020-16:50
5204 is an awesome watch but I am not a fan of the upside down moon phase and squashed numerals on the 5204. I prefer the 5372P

Totally agree! [nt]

A couple of extra photos to keep yours company

 By: russell996 : February 11th, 2020-11:34
If I could upload the images I would. 🤔

Couple of pics to add to yours.

 By: russell996 : February 11th, 2020-14:22

Great photos!

 By: DOCSF : February 11th, 2020-17:00
I recall an author mentioning the black enamel dial of 5370P is "darker than the Satan's basement"! I hope they come up with a 5370P with a blue enamel dial and Breguet numerals.

“Darker than satans basement” 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Spot on description

+++1! ;) [nt]

Absolutely magnificent [nt]

Nice strap...

 By: mdg : February 12th, 2020-09:24
Really changes the look...makes it seem sportier. On the lume issue, I don’t mind it at all. White gold hands can get lost on a black dial...the lume makes it very easy to read. And a split-second chrono is the definition of a ‘sporty’ watch.
