my first Patek... well kind off...


in a very short while... it will be 2 years to the day since i exchanged marriage vows to the loveliest lady on the planet(in my eyes yuh ;) she has been a great wife and mother to our little boy and i thought of buying her a little gift... as you know, watches make pretty fine gifts... so to add to her collection of franck mullers(plural), rolex, gerald genta mickey mouse (she swears she's not a WIS, just bought them cause they looked pretty :) i got this most important lady in my life a Patek as her 2nd anniversary present :)

for me this is the most beautiful 'elegant style' ladies watch out there bar none... sure i've seen the franck mullers, the chopard happy diamonds, the girard perregaux cat's eyes, RM007, AP ladies royal oaks, the cartiers and the rolexes... but this one IS elegance & classy chic in a watch ;)

diamonds as they say are a girls best friend...
Case set with 36 Top Wesselton diamonds at 0.45karats...
Black dial set with 10 diamond markers & a
Black Onyx cabochon crown

Patek Phillippe Twenty-Four 4910/10A-001 ... observe if you will the appliqué white gold Roman numerals with white gold baton hands :)
Polished bracelet with double folding deployant clasp & Calatrava Cross


timeless elegance is a good quality to have in a watch ;)
especially if theres any intention of passing it on to the next generation

its looks, practicality for ladies, trump any
