I have to confess that on pictures, I didn't understand the buzz around this reference. Ok, it is a nice watches but to lose your mind on that reference... Not so sure. 

Then I could see a few in the real life, and I realized how wrong I was. Not at the point to prefer it to a 5970P, for example, even if such a comparison is like comparing apples and oranges, but yes, I realize how magic it is. 

A real charm.

But, it’s an annual calendar and the date window sort of interrupts the clean look, and the 24 hour indicator doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. But it’s a similar aesthetic.

I see what PP was trying to do...

...but IMHO they really made a mess of this one. Cutout date is a huge mistake. 24-hour sub-dual makes no sense. It’s like they were trying to throw in a complication to make up for it not being a PC. Less is more.

A real conoisseur's watch, thanks for the nice pics

I wonder why Patek does not use this sharp case shape anymore. AFAIK, the regulator is the only recent one close to it on that front credit Monochrome ...  

Agree on the case. [nt]
