Nice pics - haven't seen any TRF incoming pics for the new diamomd bezel version.

Has anyone lucky TRF member received one yet?

Seems like production is extremely limited for the diamond bezel version so it wouldn't surprise me to see the secondary prices similar to the 5711P

Really do not like the look of the diamond bezel on that watch at all. One less to compete with I guess. I'm sure many will be relieved!

I donít ask for one neverÖ.and I have a chance to have 5711 blue dial but I choose 5726 1A-014. I donít like the watchÖ.
This ridiculous amount of money make me laugh and think how someone who maybe donít even like the watch want to pay that amount and how happy are Stern family with this success of Nautilus and Aquanaut collection who sold all the rest of collectionsÖ..
Also I like to see people who wear Rolex and admire PatekÖ..

Nice! Did they offer any Nautilus or hard to obtain models at the event?

$550k is almost 6 times MSRP, that is crazy!

Lovely piece. If they offered me the green 5711 or the 5236p however I’d take the 5236 for sure even with the nautilus frenzy.

Yeah, I asked for the diamonds but they said no. They allocated a 5711 olive instead. I will pick it up when lockdown is lifted.

Though proposition. The cynic in me says take the 5711 olive first. If you don't want it, it can always go towards subsidising the 5236p.

I think the 5236p will not be as hard to come by.

Looking forward to it but at the same time not really.

I thought the diamonds would provide a differentiating factor. I can just see my wife whinging about buying identical watches with different coloured dials.

This makes a lot of sense really, and I can understand where you are coming from. The baguette version is indeed the special one and I can totally see some of the olive 5711 owners getting disappointed for not having the baguette (so near yet so far, darn).

Forgive me but that is utter idiocy.

People with more money than brains.

You can get a killer Greubel Forsey for that price. Or two Roger Smiths.
