Patek 6119

Has anyone seen these in the case, or asked their AD about either the 6119r or 6119g? Curious about your experiences with availability.

I asked at two different ADs, both said itís hard to come by (though I feel like ADs say that about almost all watches these days). One mentioned itís an allocation piece that only comes in pre-sold. Neither had either watch on display.

That is really a fantastic looking piece. Someone posted the RG and both look even better in real life than the press pictures. My AD said they expecting regular stock later this year but probably initially hard to just find in cases.

Congrats, that is such a great looking piece. I'm very tempted. I might pull the trigger next year, hopefully supply will be forthcoming by then. Cheers.

Just went to my AD yesterday, and she also told me it was an allocation piece. Ended up putting me down on the interest list for it, so hopefully I'll add it this year.

Side note: are any of you aware that women's SS sport models count as SS allocation pieces in a collection (same weight as men)? I was told as such when discussing when I could get a new sports model for myself. Apparently my wife's Nautilus counts against me .

Definitely not allocation pieces, these are Patek’s new pm Calatrava and will sell in big volume, both are gorgeous.

Good and interesting point.

How many of these do you think Patek will produce and sell per year? Iíd guess maybe 2000?

I was told that they are allocation pieces as well, maybe for the first few ones. I will have a WG in a week or two.

Not an allocation piece. They are both very beautiful in person. They will probably not hit cases as often to make them more special.

Definitely not an allocation piece, but I would imagine the initial 2-4 pieces that each AD will get will sell relatively quickly to existing customers, then there will be a wait for new deliveries

I agree. It might be allocated in the sense that existing customers would have put up their hands for it.

So the first 10 or so would very likely been spoken for.

This makes sense too. I could see interest always being higher for a new model that comes out, and then maybe goes down awhile after the release since the people that wanted them got it. So maybe after a year weíll be able to see these in the case.

On the other hand, I guess if interest is sustained and Patek doesnít increase production (which I could see that potentially being the case for their ďcheaperĒ models), then what was an allocation piece at release stays an allocation piece.

I hate pulling the trigger on a watch cause you fear not being able to get it later. Should just buy what you like. But I canít say FOMO doesnít affect me.

The problem is they are out the door as soon as they arrive so I can imagine a queue forming in certain ADís, Iíve asked for a call when the next rose gold one comes in but customers are waiting for them so unless they have an event in the shop I wonít see one.

Yeah that seems to be the current situation, in any busy AD these have already been requested, so whilst not an allocation watch the first few of each one are already spoken for.

For those that have tried it on:
How does the 39mm 6119 wear compared to 37mm 5196?
(I feel like the 5196 is bigger than 37mm)
Loving that 6119 graphite dial

EWC has one listed for U$39.9k. That's almost 10k above list.

That's absolutely insane.

Hazard pay for sticking oneís neck out by being among the first ones flipping novelties to a grey dealer. Risking blowback from PP and the AD for $10K, thatís whatís insane unless one is ready to forfeit PP collecting altogether. .

I just received a call from my AD saying they received a 6119G for me. I am going in tomorrow to scope it out.

Iím a little concerned after seeing some photos that the lugs appear to be longish, and they donít quite curve down, so they can stick out straight as your wrist starts to curve. I have 17.5cm wrists.

Itís a significant purchase for me so it would have to not only look great (it does) but fit great as well.

Given the newness Iím not sure if I will be able to try it on first, I know they like to allow customers to ďcut the sealĒ on the special pieces. I will find out more tomorrow. Iím not sure I can allow myself to buy it without trying it on first.

Cut the seal and breathe in the Genevan air. I laughed the first time my AD said that.

Told him to just cut the crap the second time.

Definitely not an allocation piece. Just went into my AD today and found this waiting. This watch is so much better in person than Patekís PR photos.

Where you asking for the piece or saw it sitting in the case? Given itís still sealed I assume you asked for it and it was in the back?

Did you buy?
