New limited anniversary ref. 5105

November 17 2006, 6:03 AM 

This is one of two new anniversary watches to celebrate the new Patek Philippe salon.
Ref. 5105, a rectangular platinum watch with a great surprise inside....




According to PP, a lot of 100 NOS caliber 9-90 tonneau movements were found during the workshop departement move to Plan Les Ouates in 1996. It's one of the all time classics of PP, IMO.









Best regards
Suitbert

New limited anniversary ref. 5565

November 17 2006, 6:10 AM 

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

Nice watches, thanks for posting Suitbert. Pitty they didnt lower the numeral ´6´ just a little bit on the 565. Any idea on the MSRP´s?

And who is that, walking in the image ... spooky!!

Hi,

The 5105 is just breathtaking, awesome, superb, ....

The 5565 is very beautiful too, the two being very vintage like! Awesome!

I'm so sorry I visited the new boutique last week and they didn't show me these one.

I still saw a 3939, a 5013, a 5074, a 5078, a 5959, several pocket watches, some chronos (5070, 5960, 5970), and among many others the new 5396. The Star Caliber was not there on my day!

The range of watches on show is amazing.

Thanks again Suitbert

Dje
