215PS Reliability

Hey Folks,

New to PP. I've been a Rolex and Panerai guy for 25 years. Forgive my ignorance as I get up to speed.

Will my 215PS get me a decent 8-10 years before needing service? I know this always depends, but I'm speaking on average. I know that it is an older movement. But overally is it pretty reliable?

Thanks, Mac

It is a simple enough movement. I had my 5119 for about 15 years before selling it and didnít have any issues at all.

Its a work horse movement which PP loves and continues to use. Highly reliable and accurate. How long between services? Who knows, could be anywhere from 3 years to 20 years.

Good luck with that. Wait until you send it for service to NY and youíll soon be selling that watch and never wanting a PP again.

I am happy w my local Patek Service Center both in terms of work and service time. Even better it is just a 10 min bicycle ride from my place, no shipping involved and much closer than my AD who is 100+ miles away. Certainly no reason to not own some Pateks...
