shameless plug! if anyone is interested in JLC ultra thin i have one for sale!
OK, lame question alert, but I'm looking to buy something a bit special for a big birthday coming up in a couple of years. An epic lifetime piece, if you will. Right now, I've got it narrowed down to one of these two: the PP 5711/1A Nautilus or the AP 15202 Jumbo. Thoughts?
Well well well! What a sight for sore eyes :-) Mr Gerald Genta is in the house (sadly no longer with us) Dukes this is such a great dilemma and what a birthday treat you will have because both are winners in their own right and both have a similar 'dress' look.
AP have for this year 'new' released the 15400 (there's one in 41mm and 39mm like the original design) well worth consideration. Patek, do in my opinion have the edge on design and build (the protected winder for example and (movement is now their own) - A JLC base Calibre is in the AP - but if I'm pushed I think I'd take the AP with the version with 'seconds' hand.
There's a huge difference in cost with the two Brands and therefore ...dollar for dollar.
