Nope, if you are going to spend that kind of money, look for a 5327. One of the Best Buyís in aftermarket timepieces- way undervalued in mo . Love mine

I know of another guy just like you who loved the 5327 blue dial and ended up getting a 5320G.

He also went to the Basel 2018 just like you. His name is Karl and the guy is now banned

Naw , for that investment you could get a 5327 . Itís a current piece that sells new for over $90,000 and in mo looks like it. The piece you are looking at just is rather plain . Perhaps I am too biased bc I love mine. I would be scared to death to put 60 grand in the other piece- just need to be sure you wonít ever want to resell. JMO , wish all good things for you either way. :-)) ps with 5327 you get moon phase too :-)

I started the thread then bumped it because I finally pulled the trigger on the 5320. ETA now Thursday though. Watch is in customs in Memphis. Pics to follow!

I like it a lot, been thinking of trading my 5711 for one or some other complicated PP.

I worry about the size though, might be too big.

It doesnít wear big. Similar or smaller on the wrist than my 5711.

Congratulations, beautiful and underrated piece. I tired it on recently and loved the case and stepped lugs.

I own too many Pateks...and this one just never did it for me...I get the vintage theme is hot but I find it personally boring.

I like the layout but probably too dressy for me. To talk you out of it, price will continue to go down.
