My First Patek!!

I was in love with this watch when it got announced at Baselworld in 2019. I asked my AD for it that winter and he said he’ll try his best but it probably won’t happen. 

Time flew by and I got the call for it last month and immediately flew out to pick it up. Love the way it wears on the wrist and how casual it is! (Old photo)

Congratulations! I love that reference. The font is great.

I'm confused -- what is the 1-53 mid-ring for?

Week of the year.

edit: Congrats, OP.  That’s a cool but funky watch, and you wear it well.

I know there are only 52, but that 365th or 366th day is the start of a 53rd week and the numbers line up with the months the weeks would occur in.

If so, weird complication.

Thank you! And exactly, it’s the week of the year! some years, like 2023, have 53 weeks which is why it goes up to that

Nothing to say but CONGRATS!  Beautiful watch. Enjoy it. 

·

Congrats!! A very beautiful and well-designed watch. The pointer day and week functions are so interesting!

·

Very nice and congratulations for being a new generational custodian of a Patek watch. 😄

Epic watch!  Patek is one of the pricey brands I’m confident I’ll never own but always appreciate from afar. 

Sadly, normies will ask if it’s a Rolex

Congratulation to your beautiful watch.
