HELP, I HAVE BEEN WANTING THESE THREE FOR AGES AND RATHER TYPICALLY NOW THAT I HAVE SOME MONEY FROM A RECENT SALE OF AN OLD CAR WHAT HAPPENS....ALL 3 AT THE NEXT ANTIQUORUM SALE NEXT WEEK.

WHATS THE OPINION OUT THERE?
DOES ANYONE HAVE A PREFERENCE TO ANY OF THESE? I NEVER LOOK TO CLOSELY AT INVESTMENTS, OTHERWISE YOU NEVER GET TO ENJOY THE WATCH AT ALL, BUT I HATE THROWING MONEY AWAY. I WOULD WEAR IT AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK, AS I HAVE A LRGE COLLECTION AND SOMETIMES GET A BIT CONFUSED AS WHAT TO WEAR. I LOVE THE LOOK OF ALL OF THEM, BUT HAVE NEVER WORN A 5100, SO THATS A BIT OF AN UNKNOWN.

Well they are all great but....,

if it was me the 5100 every time. It's a great looking case with an exceptional movement in it. I have had a lot of vintage PP's in my time and the problem with them is they are(by todays standards) tiny. I love ref 96's but I own a 5196 now.
Much as I love the vintage stuff the "size issue" is firmly in my mind now and I can't shake it off. The 5100 has the the original shape but in a slightly larger case. The 5050 is the least favourite of the three because of the shape and layout. However if it was the only watch I could own I would'nt be unhappy!
Best

ok, 5100 does have a certain appeal, especially as fewer pp collectors seem to have them. thanks for the input. just a note....is it easier to read in lower case?

Hi,

what a most fortunate situation! As for the 5050R I definitely agree with my foreposter as I don't lke the layout either.

As for the 5100, I did own a YG one a couple of years back and did not only find it particularly chunky but most unbalanced, if not ugly as well.



A view you don't see in any catalogue and not to be compared to the original's elegance.

So, the 3970 is by far the most beautiful watch of the three and I already made my choice(s):





and the original

Cheers

5100 never appeals to me and 5050 looks pretty off balance IMO.
Got to be this one.
Very classic.

Well Moss, I bumped into Jaran the other day.
5125 Plat. is great, I personally love it but 5050 has never appealed to me. Got one a few years back but sold it off. 5100 is not my type of watch.
But these are what I like:

what's the right-most model in the last picture??

I like it--with the sub-seconds and is that a moonphase? ref #?
