Response to Patek Philippe re-opens the historic "Salon", Geneva

The second ref. is 5565 in stainless steel!
As the ref. number already suggests, it's reminescent of Patek Philippe's famous ref.565 with it's characteristic two part case.







Movement here's less spectacular, it's the well knwown cal. 215.

Best regards

Suitbert
