Very nice!!!! Was the box included? Legend is a master at his craft!

Lol box is my own, just showing it goes really well with gen accessories because it is indeed really nicely done

I normally hate show-offs and despite being a good brother most of the time, peterchao is really one of the most obnoxiously competitive people I know. We compete in food photography on a daily basis and the insults he sends me when he thinks he has won, are beyond words. The gall of the bugger :legend:
But this Patek was build specially for the boy despite the acrimonious rivalry we share over non-watch matters and I am happy that there is nobody else that can present it in the way which he did.
Enjoy the build, and see you at the next round of "supper wars" brother.

:_o_: OMFG!

Forgive my expletive, but this is an amazing build.

Congratulations on it, it looks beautifully and masterfully put together.

And thanks for poisoning me guys :laugh:, consider this as another itch I now have to seriously consider scratching.

That said, I’ve been seeing posts about delivery / QC delays on 3K pieces. peterchao, I’m curious if you encountered something similar or did you get your base before that?

Imho the best non-franken 5711 build is a thinned PF case + 3KF clone movement + custom DW + PPF/3KF/Buff dial.
That is correct dear. It is the suggested way of us to go for this type of build as the PF bezel is slightly better than the 3KF base one but it can also be done with the base 3KF like it was done here. The watch pictured here is a very nice example.

Beautiful build. Imho the best non-franken 5711 build is a thinned PF case + 3KF clone movement + custom DW + PPF/3KF/Buff dial. I'm informed legend and AMF can build such a hybrid.

The difference my friend is that the guys at AMF do not have to take the blindfolds off during the entire modding process :hehehe:

Mate, congratulations on a wonderful build by the Master legend himself, this gorgeous lady demands your attention and looks to have all the curves in the right places.

The crown thinning and bevelling work made such a huge difference to the overall look of the watch and I'm sure the feel when your wear it.

legend is an asset to this forum and a true gentleman. Have had the honor of communicating with him. Also have 1 of his master pieces on my wrist and in the near future 1 more for me and 1 for my father. Hats off to you sir legend and hopefully you take me up on that whiskey / bourbon offer :)
