    Wow Stitch,

    Very cool that the Patek pocket watch still has its original box and papers. Sadly, with a very limited interest in pocket watches these days, even when they are from big names such as PP, AP, VC they generally don't sell for very much...just a few grand, unless they have several complications. Still a very cool watch!

    Yeah, I did'nt want to mention it, but most Air-kings and date-justs could qaulify as casual 2! More than 3, your collecting! I have a friend who keeps everthing in a med. safe @ home! I have been there done that as well, 2much money involved! And the watches will begin to take up 2much space! Have you got winders? There ok, but you have the space problem again!

    Speaking of which, what do you think of this in terms of suitability (42mm, not my pic):

    yeah, i was very surprised too.

    we spoke with our contact at sotheby's before completing the buy. we should make some decent money on it. :)


    thanks! wanna buy it? lol. :devil:


    i do not. i enjoy setting and winding my watches. if i had an annual or perpetual calendar id consider it, but absent of that i dont find a real need, personally.

    The JLC boutique at Raffles Hotel Singapore is closed. The next nearest one would be at Marina Bay Sands.
    Anyway, flag ship boutiques do not exactly give much discount (if any).

    This reply is in response to post#16666 on page 1112.

    Left is a PAM390. Same one I did the strap change on the other day.

    Another shot of the 372 from earlier.

    Its 42mm size makes it more wearable, at least it would be for me. However, I'm not a fan of the date. I find it detracts from the dial and overall design.
