Tim ? with all your respect , the Patek 5726 has way more class than the AP, you talked about a bubble burst ?, i dont see any bubble as PP produces 3 watches per AD worldwide yes 3 . or less . I have the money i have the desire to buy a Nautilus steel at AD, guess what Tim , no longer they accept waiting list into the 1000s. if this is a bubble ? i am james bond. Supply and Demand , ..thank you for the nice video again . Super knowledgable Timo …

Pant-O-Graph?? I collect old screwdrivers and ended up with a 1940's pant-o-graph NOS for $10 when I was getting some old Stanley screwdrivers, I just bought it because it was cool, not really sure what it was for though

The AP is very nice indeed still, an easy win for the Patek. It has just too many technical advantages over this AP. Just a more modern concept I suppose. As for cost, if you can afford a 60 grand watch, you can afford a 100 grand one. This Patek is just a better allrounder, the robustness, WR and great dial legibility. This all may sound rather analytical on my part, but emotionally it does it for me too…if you were only to have the one great watch.

I’d love to see the VC Overseas perpetual calendar compared to the RO. Unfortunately, it’s only offered in precious metals.

On a related note, I’d love to see VC put the annual calendar from the FiftySix and Historiques in the Overseas. I think it would be a great competitor to the Nautilus, and unlike the Perpetual calendar, it would almost certainly be offered in steel.

Royal Oak here for me. I don’t know why but I just don’t love the dial on the Patek. However, both of these are amazing pieces. Tim, you have a DREAM job, my friend.
