To buy a single 'grown ups' watch in my 40th year .to add to the collection... Pipe and slippers are on order.

Picked this 5270 in white gold up last Friday , for me the new profile works much better than the outgoing 5970 and the new in house movement is superb !!!!

Mike even set the time and date for me

You could have taken a photo of your "fat boy Patek" after I set it, showing the red writing

I guess I'm going to have to break the seal on my new Patek Philippe cardboard box and get my new 'un out & strapped to my wrist..!

Have a safe flight home.

I have not even had the time to open the sealed box on my one, and that was 6 months ago.

Just wait till you try on the 5204.

Anyway, the saying is that the really smart rolex dealer sell Rolex and buy patek.

best,

...but what a watch ! Congrats, it's a beauty in its own. Fits very well in the "now for something different" setting but I could not care less. Breathtaking !

cheers,
