5196 Love

I have had this watch a month now and I always knew it was a classic but I have now realised itís perfect, the 37mm size is ideal for me and the 21mm strap is genius. Winding the watch every morning gives me time to plan the day ahead, Iím wondering why I did not buy one sooner.

In case anyone hasn't seen this video I thought it would be appropriate to post it here.

Congrats on a great choice. T. Stern described the 5196 as "Le Grande Classique" in a past Patek Magazine issue.

Congrats to a great watch! I just came back home with my first Patek, an white gold 5196G. Yesterday the AD told me that there will be no more like it, since they are discontinued for 2020. Really greatful I managed to find one of the last ones available in Europe. Enjoy your watch, its fantastic.

Love the proportions but hate the tiny movement, completely mis-sized.

Who said the 5196 was being discontinued? I thought the discontinued list had been ďleakedĒ on Instagram and saw no 5196s there
