What dreams are made of...Patek Philippe World Time Flyback Chronograph...

Yes, added to the list of watches I want that I cannot buy. Beautiful watch!

Thank you for the post. It’s a beautiful watch. I do love the Patek World Time complications! But (for me) I prefer the blue dial 5930G more. The NEW 5935A is already updated in the Patek official website.

Thanks for the link!

I have to admit if I'm going high horology it's always going to be the Holy Trinity - Patek, Vacheron and AP.

After that JLC and Montblanc/Minerva are close seconds for me. Minerva because of the amazing chronograph complications that are on par with Patek.

Thanks for the reply. Agree with the high horological choices.

Excuse my ignorance but I wasn’t aware of Montblanc Minerva. So I went to check it out. And I was quite pleasantly surprised that Montblanc have such a watch! And the movement WOW! 😍

Yes - when Richemont purchased Minerva they gave the brand and maison to Montblanc. 

The Minerva maison is located in Villaret (same town as Blancpain). All of the watches are handcrafted by expert watchmakers. They build the manual movements using some of the same tools and techniques that were used in the 1940s and 1950s. It takes months to make these watches and they are always a very limited production.

I was fortunate to have acquired some vintage Minerva chronographs and have also been fortunate to acquire some of the recent releases.

Here are some that I have posted previously (two modern and one vintage from 1947):
