Thanks. I would say smooth like a 5170, but 5196 is smoother. I havenít tried an old 3970 though.

Thanks. I'm hoping to try one out soon.
I love the feel of the old 5070/3970 winding vs the newer ones.

For those who have put another strap out, did you go with 21mm/16mm? Any recommendations for strap manufacturers?

Have read great things about Jean Rousseau and Camille Fournet. I've seen Delugs and Molequin straps on some watches online as well. Curious if anyone has experience with these as well?

It is a Patek oem matte grey alligator strap, and yes you need a 21/16 strap for a 6119.

Anyone have the charcoal dial on a medium brown / caramel color strap? Curious how that combo looks.

Primarily been seeing grey straps swapped out of the original black one

I have a smaller wrist than you (~6.3) and I feel like the OEM strap is really stiff and could have been a driving factor in it feeling weird / sitting awkwardly.. Size wise, for my personal preference, I think it is a good modern size that works casually and dressed up.

I'm looking for some alternative straps to put on the watch. I don't think I'll be using the black shiny / patent leather band very much.

I really like but the combo of thin dress and below 40mm (I think its 39mm) is going to be a problem. Does anybody with a bigger wrist own a calatrava?

I think my wrist is on the larger but not too large side? Sweet spot for me is 39-40mm watches.

Have definitely bonded with my one of these.

Iíve been wanting to try this one also, my wrist is 7 and a quarter and I can get away with most watches even the Tudor bronze but a thin dress watch is a strange one, my 5196 is the perfect size at only 37mm due to the flatness and wide 20mm strap, Iím worried the new calatrava might look too big

If Patek does one thing well itís subtle elegance. That watch in person defines that idea. I love the R as a dress watch, but the G is so dynamic while retaining its simplicity itís hard to say no to buying. Iíll probably try to get it next year. Too many things incoming this fall.
