Thanks guys AP and raspberries for breakfast ...
And to you too Enjoying your summer? Well, you definitely have some thoughts on the matter Thank you for the elaborate and educational answer. My approach is usually more intuitive, and I appreciate being given a more ... intellectual ... perspective.The 5070 is an amazing chrono. Proven and classic chrono movement, and probably with a whole lot of wrist presence. Never tried it on myself. At 42mm, it's rather un-Pateky though? Maybe that is more than half of its...
I really enjoy the PP discussion, @Belligero is spot on in my eyes. A quick challenge: Say you were to liquidate a collection of watches and buy a modern mid-level Patek, which one would you choose?

I would make a steeply declining drug addict. Fortunately, I only get high on worthless old steel divers. Watch is long gone, but not...
A very short postcard from Geneva Yearly trip with an old friend, this year we went to Geneva. Lived in Place Longmalle inbetween FP Journe and Varcheron Constantin. Amazing location, the hotel itself was less than impressive for the price. But I choose a boring hotel over living on the other side of the river any time. Easy access to shopping and the old city. Looked at watches. A lot! Otherwise spent time at a local music festival, drinking and eating on the...
