I can say that I'm thinking of getting rid of not only my 44mm, but also the Jarno Trulli to fund it.

Thoughts?
I have the same answer as before. I would do it. I love that watch assuming the 5170 isn't your cup of tea.

I'm surprised it's cheaper in Canada given the exchange rate right now. Are you on the hook for the 13% tax as well?

TRF Sales Corner... cash money deal and therefore, no sales tax.

List in Canada is $104,500 CAD while US list is $90,400 USD (about $113,400 CAD) if I'm not mistaken. Even the best AD price I could work out would still be almost 12K USD higher than 2nd hand.

I've debated long and hard between the Dato and 5170. I like the slimmer profile of the 5170 and the fact that well, it's a Patek - even though it seems to get killed on the secondary market. The Lange has much more that gets me excited - including the Big Date, the dial and the movement. The only con to the Datograph is it may be hard to move when I need to, though the 5170 isn't arguably easier to move.

I get it , I donít think itís crazy getting rid off those 2 APís but my concern is that the Dato might not be as fulfilling for you in the long term. Tough spot you are right now

Have you written this out before Tom? I feel a sense of deja vu. Anyway I would go for the Dato, its small size and thickness is my issue with it but think you will be alright unless you mean the Up/D. The Zeitwerk is more my speed now.

thats a great comparison. For me the Dato wins though as its less dressy, but i like both the ALS and PP. Im getting the Dato when i move back to the states. I can get a decent discount and a VAT refund on top to I'm going to time it that way. Who knows when that will be though. Well, its either the dato or zeitwork. That one is growing on me in a big way.

The AP Ti is on its way out the door for a 5524G whenever i get the call (probably). RG is a keeper.

im not. edited above. The RG isn't going anywhere for sure.

With a discount and VAT refund the numbers make more sense to just buy it and not trade anything.

You sure about the pushers on the 5524? Being on the left and rather large could be an issue? I like big pushers but on the right, like the 44s.

I've got a while to become sure as I'm betting its a year out as far as delivery but the more i see it in real pics, the more i like it. I miss my BP but it was too big for a daily and i want another pilot watch at some point to replace it. The 5524 is my favorite one, and I prefer the dial to the 5522 (not that i could get one anyway). Its the same reason i prefer the 5164 to the 5167 even if i never used the travel time function the dial is more interesting. I suppose i would prefer it without pushers but its not a deal breaker at this point.

Honestly i have more concerns about the shape of the number "4" on the dial than i do about the pushers.

it all depends on the status of the 15407. If that comes though id probably let the Ti go for the 5524. If not, it could stay. I don't buy grey market so it all depends on if AP can deliver one or not. Its more about keeping the collection at a wearable number more than anything. I hate having more watches than i can reasonably wear as I'm not a safe queen collector.

I agree with you on the 24 over 22 and 64 over 67. Just would prefer the pushers on the right side, but selling one 44 for it makes sense.

Makes sense. Itís not a watch you want to get into before youíre 100 percent sure.

Anything else on the radar?
