This really all started with my local Patek dealer that finally got a decent model in, in Australia there isn't many choices when comes in anything, a 5140G. I was just window shopping and decided to have a feel for the watch, to be honest, I knew Patek is expensive, but didn't expect it to be more than 100K! This is the first time I found something I thought I can afford but really can't....
Then finally got around to do a bit more research instead of embarrassing myself again, and annual calendar is a good entry level complication for Pateks. When the local vintage watch store got a 2011 5146G is excellent condition, I decided to trade in my 3 Longines and 1 omega which I didn't wear and paid the big difference remaining.
After consolidation, 1 PP, 1 JLC, 2 Rolex, 2 Omega, and 1 ML.
