    Picked this up over the weekend, what do you think?

    My dad has been asking me to source for an Annual/Perpetual for him and while we had our eyes set on the Patek 5205R, I stumbled across this on the forums and showed it to him. He really liked it a lot and we managed to get a good price from an AD for this. I love watches a lot and he knows that which is why he has always been asking me for advice about which watches to get/sell off etc.

    Its a really amazing watch and a good dress size at 38.5mm.





    My dad is still eyeing the Patek, and he was asking me what other recommendations (strictly Patek only) would fall in the same price bracket of 5205R Brand New? Because he still wants to get a Patek. What do you guys think?

    No suggestions for a Patek complication since they don't lure me, but that Lange AC is one of the few complicated watches I could see owning. Congrats to you and your father!!!

    I really thought AC was exclusively a Patek's thing until Lange came up with that thing in 2013.

    To be frank, the direct competitor to that Lange is 5146, which everybody likes and is the first thing half people think of with a some 40k budget. You cannot go wrong with 5146 and even you do, it is one of the easiest flipper at its price point.

    While 5205 is something else and is a true Patek definer to my eye. The dial arrangement is not often seen with other brands, and it offers a sporty touch that no other AC is able to.

    Normally I recommend against Patek, but in that particular comparison, it is 5205 that stands out.
    There is no such thing as a collector's watch.
