Patek Philippe Massively Improve The ref. 5134. But, No-one Notices!
Old version [L] and new version [R] that mirrors the supremely elegant Platinum type.
With everyone seemingly focussed elsewhere at Basel 2005 on the split chrono and the moonphase Nautilus, PP's quiet revamping of their technically gorgeous but aesthetically hideous gold versions of the 5134 have gone unnoticed. One of my favourites, a manual wind with a simple and useful complication, this watch is deservedly popular in platinum form. For those that prefer gold (for me rose gold) we now have the platinum style at a better price and in the colour we want. Good job PP.
