    That the one thing the RO, Nautilus, and 222 had in common is not Genta (as he didn't design the 222), its that they all used the same base movmenet JLC cal 920. Although, Patek eventually switched to an inhouse movment for the Nautilus.

    I had a chance to buy a 5070RG for 30K 5-6 yrs ago. Didn't really like the look. Stupid me. I really like this new chrono, and the mvmt fits the case! Wear in the best of health.

    Good stuff Dino, congrats!! The first AP that i ever liked, it is surprising to see some brands that you have written 100% off actually makes something you like. Now i just need Panerai to do something remotely good and my watch perception is shattered.

    My Dad bought the black dial YG 5070 when it was new in 1999. I thought he was a bit crazy as it cost him $27K and I thought he should have gotten a better discount, list was $28,800. That was back in the days when it was pretty easy to get Pateks from an AD at a 30% discount. Sadly those days are long gone. I guess he made the right decision after all.

    Thanks Knisse. I have wanted an AP RO for some time as I liked the overall design, but I just wasn't in love with any of them. From the moment I saw photos I really liked it. When I saw it in person...I fell in love with it. I wasn't sure that a time only watch was really worth what the Jumbos go for, especially when their chronographs and other variations are around the same price (or less for a Dual Time or Day-Date calendar watch). But after a few days with it I can really see why it costs what it does and I am really thrilled with this watch.

    As for Panerais, the design is so original and cool. My only problem with them is that many PAMs have really ordinary movements. A few years ago I found out their base Luminor was using a Unitas movement that was also powering my friend's $700 watch. When I learned that I was really disappointed with several of their offerings. Yes, I know they finish it to a higher level than in a $700 watch, but still disappointing IMHO.

    Question? Why do people seem to want doubles, triples, etc, of the same or very similar watches? For example, some folks like to own Patek models in every gold and Pt. In my opinion, this creates a false market and makes it difficult for mere collectors to own even one of that model. Maybe it's jealousy, but I find this practice greedy. I mean, how many chronos of the same brand does one need. I've been guilty myself, to a quite small degree, but I like chronos and have owned VC's and Omega's versions, though the VC was dressy and the Omega Speedy was more of a sport piece.
    Thoughts?
