Two highlights from the 2013 Patek Phillippe Collection are the Calatrava Ref. 5227 with its superbly hinged caseback, and the Ref. 5200 Gondolo 8 Days, Day & Date Indication, a new complication in a rectangular caliber and a beautiful dial color. In a well-done video presentation, you can watch Patek President Thierry Stern give his own personal unveiling of these two new models – but, unfortunately, Patek has disabled “embedding” (why Patek, why?) so you’ll have to click over to YouTube to watch the video.
Among Patek’s 465 prestigious global retailers is David M Robinson. David M Robinson is a Patek retailer whose flagship store is at Canary Wharf in London (you can see their current Patek offerings here). From September 26, 2013 through October 6, 2013 they will have on exhibition the new 2013 Patek Philippe collection. Patek fans in the area would be well served to drop in and check it out.
Those of you who want to refresh yourselves on the new 5227 and the 5200 should check out my extensive reviews of both of these pieces (click link or images below).
