Thank You for the information!

Most beautiful Cartier I have ever seen! I really love simple two handed watches, being an owner of a JLC MUT 34mm. 
The bracelet is, in my eyes, a rare design that perfectly blends simplicity, fragility and force!

Best,

Rob.

Ken . I took my Sinn for a photography session to the park early in the morning, and the lily being a "diurnal" did not have chance to open for the day yet. Of course it did not bother my photogenic 657:) Best regards Edward

5107P

 
 By: Park : July 16th, 2015-12:59
Mark, Thank you. It is a 5107P, a reference that appeared in Patek's catalogs in 2004-2005 and 2005-2006. I'm told it was pretty much sold out by November 2006. It is 37 mm, automatic, with a matte black dial. I feel fortunate to have found one. Park

Thank for all the details

 
 By: Mark in Paris : July 16th, 2015-13:59
It is perfect in 37mm and looks beautiful. Sometimes I'm afraid older references may be too small. Enjoy it! Cheers, Mark

Oh, yes. Quire right!

Dear Ken, looking at the resonance your "Simple" thread recieved until now, it is evident there are a lot of simplicity loving people browsing this site. Whereas "simple" may be used in the sense of dull or plain, I prefer to interpret it in the meaning o...

Thank you, Nicolas, for your compliment!

It is particularly valuable as it is from a great collector like you! And you are right that it took a few years to add some very nice timepieces and to part with some less impressive ones. My best regards anaesdoc

I dunno Art, but I guess that is what they call factory condition. The movement of the watch isn't too shabby either. The finish level confirms a late 30's early 40 date of small batch production. Here is a picture of the back. BR Z' ...
