Oh dear, all this talk of high-end watches on the forum! I am eyeing up a VC Patrimony in yellow gold (pre-loved). I’m afraid your thread is doing absolutely nothing to bolster my resistance! :lol:
Very nice indeed....

Re: New Arrival - Patek Philippe Calatrava

:D It was, quite a few freebies thrown in, travel boxes etc. My wife bought a Rolex at the same time and she was given a bottle of Rolex perfume! No refills available unless you buy another watch apparently :lol: Well, no excuses when she needs to replenish - or she can't use it at all! :( The latt...

Re: New Arrival - Patek Philippe Calatrava

TBH I started looking at preowned 5119’s but in the end as it was a very special purchase I decided to go for new. Completely understandable - and I hope it was an exceptional experience at the PP AD. :thumbup: :D It was, quite a few freebies thrown in, travel boxes etc. My wife bought a Rolex at t...

Re: New Arrival - Patek Philippe Calatrava

£15k. Half price from todays identical one for £30k (not sure how much they were in 2003 though, maybe 15k 😅), sell the bracelet for 5k if you dont like it. 10k automatic PP. Are they really £30k new nowadays? Wow. You can pick them up fairly readily these days for around £15k, but like the OP I'd ...

Re: New Arrival - Patek Philippe Calatrava

Not for me but still a lovely watch. Heres one on a bracelet that doesnt seem bad value.

Beautiful. Would love to see a sharper one of the movement if you can get it. :D
I had to go and buy a proper camera for this :lol: :

The marks around the crown caused a heart flutter but they easily polished out with a microfibre cloth.

Re: New Arrival - Patek Philippe Calatrava

Not my cuppa at all, but it is nonetheless a very special watch. Congratulations! :D At the risk of derailing my own thread :o I'd love to see what you'd consider your favourite "cuppa". Likewise @TigerChris, what do you have that floats your boat the most? Like Chris, I am not a dress-watch person...

New Arrival - Patek Philippe Calatrava

Having received some lovely comments and helpful suggestions on my ‘legacy help please’ thread I thought a few more photos wouldn’t go amiss. The reference is 511G and has, apparently, just been discontinued. I hope you like them, apologies for quality it’s iPhone only and I’m no photographer. The o...

I think you did right, even if it did cost. Absolutely the watch to remember your mother by. Congrats.
Indeed, and it was your suggestion too :thumbup:

As well as your fantastic Calatrava, it was clearly meant to be, as it looks like Mrs DPJ31 has ended up with a DJ31. :)

Although it's actually a DJ28 :lol:

Wow, Congratulations !!!
Probably the first Calatrava on the forum?
Thanks, and to everyone else that has posted such lovely comments :) I'd be surprised if this is the first Calatrava, but I will take some more photos of the watch, box etc and post under a separate thread.
