But seriously folks... On the Plus Side: It's a Patek, and therefore should never lose value It's thin and suitable for wear with outfits up to black tie On the Minus Side: Not especially fashionable by current standards. The Pateks that are most desired right now are the larger Calatravas with roman numeral faces, or complications. Not particularly wearable with casual clothing, in my opinion. An American, rather provincial opinion: if you're going to pay for gold let it show, either as mixte links or a yellow/rose/green gold case. Yes, I know that all of the watch sophisticates of Europe view yellow gold as tacky and arriviste, but I must personally disagree.
Thanks fir your reply. + + + I agree with you - - - I agree with you bit wouldn't put this in minus - Being in fashion (todays = BIG watch) is not my aim. I do not like to see people wearing the same items as me. - the fact it is not a very popular model is a good thing = it is cheaper than a Calatrava (has the same movement I guess) and sooner or later fashion will change and this watch would go up in value. It was the hit of Patek 30 Year ago. THE PATEK. Do you really prefer this one?
I do not think colored gold is always tacky, it depends on the watch. For this one it makes not tacky, just grand-father. Some JL are nice in pink gold. What is green gold?
