Beautiful Patek Christian...

but it doesn’t have the classic trademark bezel.

The Black Velvet...

Christian, this drink was first created by the bartender of Brooks's Club in London in 1861 in memory of Prince Albert, who was Queen Victoria's Prince Consort. Made with Guinness and Champagne !... Enjoy.

That’s a superb idea

 By: ChristianDK : May 14th, 2019-12:54
I was actually thinking of something with a bit of alcohol in it - an other thing - the dial is Matt black with a silvery sheen. The Black velvet is spot on!

I like it, I think the Patek community should also start claiming ownership on a few drinks! :-) Another good red and black option might be the Black Devil Martini ;-)

As for sports nicks, since we already have a (real) 5960 Leicester, we could unofficially dedicate this version to AC Milan... Cheers.

Also a great proposition :-)

I think some kind of cocktail is more Patek - and we can leave the soft drinks for Rolex LOL

It is such a cool watch. Patek is carrying a lot of heritage that I love but if they only look in the history books

 By: ChristianDK : May 14th, 2019-13:56
They would end up being a bad copy of their former glory. I feel this watch Brought some new ideas to the table and the new design as well.

And it works in so many different styles...

Your "coke" has a very different expression than, say, the first platinum grey dial version. It's a very well designed watch, a future classic for sure.

Very good point

 By: ChristianDK : May 14th, 2019-22:24
They appear quite different and yet there is not one of them that doesn’t work. I think that is testimony that it is well designed as you said.

Thank you, Mahesh

I need it. I’ve grown so many grey hairs in the last few years and this week I’m getting glasses 🤓

Welcome! ;) [nt]

That's it. [nt]

Glasses are good...

It makes us look nerdy 😜

Thank you, Fernando, for your kind words :-)

 By: ChristianDK : May 15th, 2019-00:25
I also really like the black platinum. Those would perhaps be my two favorites .....but in sincerely like all the 5960....they each have something. E.g. the R with the brushed dial is something I find very appealing

Thank you, Centurionone

 By: ChristianDK : May 15th, 2019-12:07
true, that it doesnt need it - Im just a bit jealous of the rolex guys with all their cool nicknames ;-) LOL

Hi Christian, reading through the discussions, IMO you are correct that for certain Patek references, especially your 5960 (black and red), a catchy and appropriate nickname is warranted ! Rolex should ....

 By: GLau : May 15th, 2019-09:54
share such “privilege” with Patek. Given the various comments by others, I feel that Patek deserves more than the name of a cocktail or drink. What about a famous character from the comic books !!?? Since Rolex has the Batman (black and blue for GMT Maste...  

thats also a super idea!!!

 By: ChristianDK : May 15th, 2019-12:04
Im fed up with Rolex getting all the cool nicknames like James Bond and Paul Newman. Dont forget Omega has Ultraman - which is a cool name. Batman - obviously cool. Deadpool sounds scary as hell - but cool!!! I dont know the character. Should there be nam...
