What would be your ideal 3-5 Patek collection?

If you had a watchbox that had enough slots for 3-5 watches, Which 3-5 Patek references do you want in that box? 3 or 5. Some people might be content with 3. 5 feels optimal for me as I wont wear anymore than that. It doesnt matter what you currently have in your collection, but more of where you want it to be. I was thinking about this over thr past few nights and curious what others are thinking


I’ll start... this would be my ideal collection just for me.


5711r - for the days where its all about fun and sun, just to add a pep to my step.
5712a/r -this dial just continues to mesmerize me. I find myself staring at it.
5170g - i lust after this watch, one day maybe when the market softens.
5320G - when i tried this on, fell in love with this watch but not at msrp. This is up there with the 5170g for me.
5131P (but on a strap) - just something special

I realized im not really into AC, PC etc. its nice just not for me. Maybe my taste will evolve as i mature


Good morning! Whats yours?

When my 5167 comes back it is 5 lol

But I'd probably go 5320 as IMO cleanest PC in the catalogue

5196P - ultimate dress PP
5712/1A - ultimate daily SS on bracelet
5164A - ultimate daily SS on rubber and as close to a PP tough watch as you can get
5370P - grail watch for me, has so much going for it
5270R - PCC is a classic and ads something timeless in a non-white metal

57121a
5170p
59801r
5740
5711w

This is stuff that likely fits

5270p, 5968 for stuff that doesn’t (not sure if 5980 would fit me)

5370p if dreaming is allowed

If 3 - just one Calatrava, Nautilus, and Aquanaut each:

- 3998P
- 5711/1A
- 5165A or 5167A (5968A if my wrist was larger)

If 5 - I would likely add some vintage pieces:

- 3417, 3466, or 3483
- 3700

I'm sure many people would have, but turned it down flat, it's only going 1 way, and I still like to wear it and enjoy it

5711/1R - Perfect wedding and sports watch
5980/1R - Casual day off watch
5164R - Travel + casual
5990/1A - Ultimate travel for me
5740G - Just makes me drool. I can imagine the weight and the blue just smiling at me 24/7.

All nautis and an aqua. This nauti-bug has taken me over. I'll have 3 of these watches before end of Q2. Not sure when I'll ever see the light of the 2 others.
