    You guys are way too polite... Even disregarding that you've never seen this model, which you would have. A Patek that size, (ugly) day-date cal and moon phase? An obvious fake. Nothing adds up. It even looks to be steel.

    The seconds hands on their chronographs always seem to reach the second markers. However, I believe the second hand just comes a tad short of the second markers on a few of their watches like the Nautiuls annual calendar and a few other watches. Either way, I'm not sure I'd rely solely on the second hand length relative to the second markers. I just didn't recognize this as a Patek model within the last 15-20 years, and although I'm not a Patek expert I'm relatively familiar with their offerings.
    Well, I was trying to give the guy the benefit of the doubt. I know a reasonable amount about Pateks and their collections of the last 15-20 years, but something could have slipped my memory. As for a "Patek" being ugly, I'm not sure thats a sign of it being a fake. I think Patek has made some great products, but they (like all watch companies) have made the occasional ugly watch (such as 5489 trapazoid, Sculpture 5091, Cabriolet 5059, and the Neptune to name a few). Sure there are less attractive watches, but for me those are lacking in the beauty I would expect from Patek (particularly the Sculpture watch).

    Gents, for straps for the Reverso ultra thin I'm getting, where does one look online? I found ABP in Paris which looks promising. Any other sites/vendors I should check out for a 20/18 width?

    Congrats! ABP is great source for straps. I have a few friends that bought custom straps from them for a Piaget, a Cartier, and an AP. Another great source is Camille Fournet. They supplied original strap to Lange, JLC and other companies owned by Richemont. Not sure if they still are the supplier to Lange, JLC etc, but they also make great straps. Good luck and congrats.

    Thank you both! I also really like their watches - especially the Tradition and Le Réveil du Tsar. ...and of course all Tourbillons :)


    Very nice watch - enjoy!

    That's the standard strap for the Aquanaut. Patek did a nice job with the strap, its texture/pattern is inspired by the dial.

    Yesterday's watch- still in bed so haven't decided what to wear today

    Ps just changed the strap to blue-black...I think it looks stunning - and certainly more wearable now
