Patek Worldtime 5131g THE DC PROJECT

Recommended Posts

Looks so much better than before. Dont forget to make the hour hand tip pointy. On the rep it just sticks out with a thin rectantgular shape, on the gen, it has a point to it.

By any chance, do you have some artistic school background?

There is some talent in the application of the paint without it becoming messy or full of waves done due to touching the paint while it is drying!

 

Used to draw and paint when I was little but never had any formal training. I'm just a college dropout who became an Estate Agent and has done it ever since.

 

What can I say, must have natural skills :P

Just a suggestion, maybe put a side to side pic of the old vs. new so we can be even more inspired..

 

Excellent suggestion, here's a "before and after"...

Oh. My. God.

 

DC you know my long-suffering love for the 5131 - having found one about a decade ago, long before I found the forums, from some shoddy website that was shut down a week later…I was proud of that little find, and it was not without some regret when I sold it to you. Now this… I could not be more stunned at your work. Take my advice and don't sell it. Ever. But if you do, complete the rep circle of life and send her my way ;)

Haha, thanks for the kind words Ish. There's no way I'll be selling this now, it's truly stunning (even if I do say so myself). The blue colour was the biggest disappointment of the rep, I love the cobalt blue of the gen with the almost turquoise hue around the continents, I'm just so pleased with how it's turned out that it captures that effect which I love so much in the gen!!

 

I just wish I still had your one to do the same to that!!

_DC_ there 8s something not clear to me out of the 5131.

In your 1st post you showed this as the gen one with no Americas on it:

And your rep has a whole world map.

 

Looking on the web for 5131 I found also MANY pics (also from legit sites) that look like this:

Am I right to think that the gold one has the world (and also pretty similar to the rep) and the white gold one instead has "the world minus Americas" and a more refined paint?

All three metal variations have different maps. The white gold has a map of Africa, Europe and Asia with no Americas, the yellow gold has America, Europe and Africa with no Asia, and the rose gold has Asia and the Americas but no Europe or Africa.

 

The reps all have the same map which is the same as the map on the yellow gold gen, so it's wrong for my white gold version technically but ask me if I care :P

 

Your first pic is some messed up dial, it's not even lined up with the case at all, something very wrong there!!

Well it looks marginally better.... :giggle:

 

Very impressed DC! Only just seen this whole thread and I'm glad I did as the suspense would have killed me, had I been watching it unfold in real time :)

 

By far the best mod I've seen on here for some considerable time.

 

Massive :thumbsup:
