    problem....

    If you buy the watch, the deal will find some strange way to unwind. I would wait, but I'm slightly superstitious.

  4. My grandfather that passed away gave my father this watch in 1973 and had it engraved with the date. My father gave it to me in 1991 and also had it engraved. The family story is my grandfather purchased the watch when he came back from WWII, but no one really knows. He could have purchased it new in 1973 for all I know. On the 12 o'clock end of the case it has the number 9119. That does not seem to be a model number, but doesn't seem to be a serial number either. Google does not offer much help, I thought I would try here. Thank you.
  5. Very nice. Take care of yourself when you are back at it.
  6. Swatch. My 8 and 11 year olds both have G shocks.
  7. I fully expect to need to establish a relationship with an AD. To include the purchase of one or more watches. Which is actually a cheaper way to go than going through my favorite trusted seller, who is able to get one now. Ideal would be to just get on a waiting list somehow. Next best would be to buy a 5227 and as part of the deal have an application submitted (which is my hope). My intent is to purchase a 5227 as my first Patek anyway. I had started the process with a trusted seller, then decided maybe I'm better off going to an AD if my goal is a 5131. My hope is that I don't need to buy a pile of watches just to get on a list, because that unfortunately doesn't work for me financially. Just trying to sort it all out. I'm afraid it will be untouchable for me. Just trying to get a feel for it before I dip my toe in the Patek water.
  8. A gold 5131 is my grail. I'm ready to start working on getting one. I intend to keep it until it's handed down. I works for me at retail, but on the secondary market I can't touch it. I know it's an application piece and something I can't just walk in and purchase. So my questions are. How do I go about being considered a viable option when I submit an application? How many watches does one normally have to purchase prior to being accepted for a 5131? Is it completely out of the realm of possibility to be accepted with the 5131 being the first Patek purchase? Generally what do I need to do to put myself in a position to get a 5131 at retail. I'm looking at this as a multi year process for myself. Thank you.

  11. Lady goes to the police station and says she was raped by a pilot. Cop says, how do you know. Lady says he had a big watch, a small d%#! And he stole my USA Today. Don't forget to tip your waiter, I'll be here all week.
  12. Deal #5. Nothing but good things to say. Buy with confidence.
