Now, for an actual TWAT related discussion, out of the two, I vastly prefer the 5227. I have never really been a huge fan of the first model. However, I think that, at its current price, the 5227 is far, far, far too expensive. Frilly has discussed this before, but you can get a lot more bang for your buck, even from Patek, by paying just a little bit more.

The 5227 is gorgeous, no doubt. But man, $37,000? Crikey.

 

Modern pricing of models currently in production is, IMHO, out of whack given where secondary market prices are trending.  

 

For comparison, my ref 5040 perpetual calendar in yellow gold - mint pre-owned - trades for about as much as that ref 5227 Calatrava.  Uhm.  A Calatrava or a perpetual calendar?  Tough choice.

Dan, that red Sub is so m*f*ng ugly.  Let me do you a favor.  Ship it to me.


Thank you sir.

 

 

I would have about a week ago, but I just got a pair of new boots and I just hate to breakup a good pairing.

Those Galways are so bad a**.  Every time people ask me "hey, why do you have more than one Sub or SeaDweller?" - I think to myself, why does the legendary dddrees have three pairs of EG Galways?  Boom.

Subs have a lot in common with Galways.

 

 

That reminds me, me thinks me needs another Sub.

 

 

Cause this is the only other one I have.
