A close-up crop from the previous post of the amazing cloisonné enameling on the Patek Philippe 5131R
Well I’ve got to say that @k2luxurywatches are just serving ace after ace at the moment. Following hot on the heals of the 5088P, here’s the stunningly beautiful 5131R World Timer. And there’s more to come… Trying my best to do these watches justice with 100 megapixels of @PhaseOnePhoto goodness!
Here’s a detail crop from the previous post of the Patek Philippe 5088P. As you can see, the quality of the engraving and enameling on this one is exceptional.
For today, another stunning Patek Philippe from my friends @k2luxurywatches. The 5088P-100 with its stunning hand engraved and enamelled dial and case. This is the full frame 100 megapixel image. Want to see some detail? 😛
Crop detail from the Patek Philippe 5180/1G-010 full frame shot posted earlier.
The simply stunning Patek Philippe 5180/1G-010, available on request from @k2luxurywatches, to whom I am exceedingly grateful for giving me the opportunity to shoot this grail of a watch 😜 Detail crop coming later…
Final #macromonday post for this week. The #PatekPhilippe 5204.
Press play ▶️ Hard as it may seem to believe, I think my favourite watch that I have seen on my all-to-brief vacation in #HongKong and #Tokyo is not actually a #GrandSeiko. Rather, it is this simply gorgeous #PatekPhilippe from the early 1970’s. @christieswatches had one in the catalogue for their auction here in #HK, but it was withdrawn. Fear not however, because there is one available in their online auction. The lady at #Christies assured me it wasn’t the same one, and who am I to doubt her! It’s a #3574 #Calatrava in stainless steel, with the rare embossed logo dial. Simply gorgeous! It is believed there are only 10 such pieces in existence. Temporarily, I will provide the link to this watch in my bio. May it find a good home, because if I wasn’t 100% focused on Grand Seiko I’d buy it for myself 😜
One more for #macromonday. The split-seconds chronograph hands of the #PatekPhilippe #5204P as you’ve probably never seen them before. Well, I posted a wider shot of this a while back, but I thought it would be fun to share the full level of detail 🙂 #macro #horology #Patek
Just realised I’ve yet to share a detail shot from the dial side of the #PatekPhilippe #5204P. So for #macromonday today, I’ll post a couple. Here’s the thing I’m not a fan of on pretty much all Patek perpetual chronos since the 3970. I just cannot wrap my head around why Patek don’t make all the date numbers in the same sized font as the 5 and 27. Then those two wouldn’t stick out like a sore thumb, and there would be no need for a “chin”, or for the dates to eat into the minutes track. Would be interested to know my followers thoughts on this! #macro
