WELCOME TO THE WATCH JOURNEY
Please follow me while I evolve and learn in this lifelong hobby. My watch collection has been changing together as my tastes vary in brands, complications, price range and aesthetics. If watches are an expression of one’s personality, tastes and in essence, one’s DNA, then my fascination for watches will never end.

Since the day of purchase, it has become my TALISMAN. It accompanies me wherever I go and brings me good luck.
Let me start by saying that they are great watches. They are robust. They are super accurate. They are elegant and pretty enough. They retain their value and they are iconic. But that is not enough…
The way we view our timepieces has changed forever and there will never be a personally desired mechanical timepiece that won’t beg the primary concern, future price earnings.
The short answer is a definite yes but not the way it is defined in the dictionary.

Little’s Law developed by MIT professor John Little, is a remarkably elementary but profound theorem in Queueing theory, the mathematical study of lines and queue wait times. It is predominantly used to estimate queue times in a retail business but the equation can be generalized to any stationary system, in our case, wait times for desirable watches.
When I say the perfect watch, I don’t mean the so called “grails” that one actively targets looking through crosshairs. While there is no perfect watch that could possibly be manufactured for the masses, with the multitude of models available, there surely must be a perfect watch that should satisfy my aesthetic values and checklist of complications.

It is such an exclusive watch, financially and supply wise that I prefer not to even think about obtaining one and I consider it as a virtual watch for me.
The 5320g was introduced by Patek Philippe in 2017 as a melding of numerous Patek vintage designs into a modern size and mechanism. The case is a monobloc of white gold and one can see many various parts of vintage Pateks from the lugs to the case, the hands and dial.
