    That is going to be expensive!

    Not crazy about the look, but one has to admire the engineering and the micro-mechanics.

    Steve, you need to include Geneve on your itinerary and go visit the Patek Phillipe Museum while there.
    I went there in April with a visiting audio buddy and we spent only and hour and could have spent double that easily. he was not even a big watch fan before...

    Norman... Would love to go to Geneve. Next trip, certainly. We are spending time in Germany mainly Bavaria, driving again through the Alps to Vienna and Hungary to visit my ageing father.

    Hope to get to the Eagle's Nest this time before the roads are closed for the winter.

    Steve, you will certainly enjoy that. I just spent a week in Bavaria/ULM(Baden-Wutt) and Austria (Land Salzburg). very pleased.

    Been to Budapest twice...very nice.

    Vienna a long time ago...LOVELY!

    So much time, effort and craftsmanship to create something that ugly.

    I was in Hungary. Did not find it to be tourist friendly place. I do not recommend.

    That's quite the piece. Requires extremely steady hands. That's what handcrafted is about.I have furniture that is handcrafted. True artist that are dying off.

    Glad Suncoast Audio doesn’t sell fancy watches! Mike would have Patek in his portfolio.
