Since its launch in 2005, Only best replica Watch has been one of the largest (or even the most important) auction events in the watch industry. A biennial charity auction established by Luc Pettavino by the Monaco Association Against Muscular Dystrophy (MAAMD) under the patronage of Prince Albert II of Monaco.
The brand donated unique watches for auction; all proceeds will be used to fund research on Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a debilitating and life-threatening genetic disease that affects approximately 3,500 boys One of them, including Petavino’s son, who died of the disease in November 2016.
Patek Philippe is one of the 50 watch brands that this year’s Only Watch by Christie will be held in Geneva on November 11, 2017. As connoisseurs and collectors would expect, the brand’s generous Lot 12 is perfect-a complex mechanical miracle: Reference 5208T-010 triple complication in a titanium case, which is the only titanium watch to date 5208T-010 that can be contained in the shell.
What we are talking about here is just the complication that represents the model of watchmaking: the minute repeater is in the movement, the timepiece is set on two gongs, next to it is an instantaneous perpetual calendar with three window displays and a precise single button Chronograph.
You might think: “So far, everything is good.” This Swiss manufacturer, founded in 1839, sees us as an impressive series of complex watch products.
For Patek Philippe replica, we are a bit flattered, because almost no watch company has shown its special strength for so long. Grand complications are part of its established collection; they are not just one-off exhibits like many other high-end watch brands.
Patek Philippe: the undisputed world record holder at auction
Patek Philippe’s intricate timepieces are almost infinite and can fill an entire book-in fact, they all. Calibre 89, launched in 1989, has 33 complicated functions and is the most complicated portable timepiece in the world.
Patek Philippe’s special exhibitions, such as the recently concluded “The Art of Watches Grand Exhibition” (The Art of Watches Grand Exhibition), are literally full of landmark timepieces, proving the legendary brand’s involvement in the field of high-end watches depth.
From a technical and artistic point of view, the most high-class things are strung together like pearls, covering all aspects of watchmaking, including excellent rare handicrafts that are also dedicated by manufacturers.
The appearance of each Patek Philippe watches reflects the inherent beauty of its complex mechanical craftsmanship.
The perfect harmony of the two elements is one of the reasons why Patek Philippe maintains a record at the auction. Whenever a new antique clock is put on the market, it is bound to be in a bidding war with collectors all over the world.
The most recent record was set by the Reference 1518 stainless steel perpetual calendar watch produced in 1943, making it the most expensive watch ever sold at auction.
Considering that this recognized rare watch is the “only” stainless steel cladding, it reflects Patek Philippe’s unique reputation among elite collectors.
Successfully dressed: Patek Philippe titanium
Looking back at Patek Philippe’s contribution to Only Watch 2017, this is an improved version of the Reference 5208 Triple Complication that was first launched in 2011. The exquisite nature of the watch may not be as surprising as the titanium case material.
Yes, you read that right: it is wrapped in titanium!
Titanium is rarely used to hold Patek Philippe. You can honestly say “almost never used”. Titanium is the representative material of this timepiece. Although sports alloys are excellent in strength, toughness and ultra-lightweight, it is often difficult for Patek Philippe to make them into precious timepieces.
Patek Philippe’s extremely rare use of titanium may increase the desire of bidders to own this watch, which not only increases the suspense in the bidding process, but most importantly, at an auction, it provides money at one time, as a result.
Patek Philippe seems to be a very wise strategy. He has participated in Only Watch 3 times so far. Instead of encapsulating the timepiece with precious platinum or gold, it (for the brand) rarely Use titanium to encapsulate.
Also highlighting its rare characteristics is the 701-component caliber R CH 27 PS QI, one of Patek Philippe’s few automatic complications.
In addition, the lucky owner of this timepiece will also meet with Thierry Stern, the president of the blue chip company, and visit the Patek Philippe workshop and museum.
Frankly speaking, in addition to specializing in the guidance of “the holiest place for watches”, which watch enthusiast is not willing to have lunch with the very pleasant and down-to-earth Thierry Stern?
This is why Lot 12 can be as safe as the Bank of England in terms of expected results: it offers the highest estimate of all 50 unique timepieces, and the performance will definitely be very good, especially if the 2015 version of Only Watch is coming soon (please See “Where Are You: Participating in the 2015 Only Watch Auction with Patek Philippe”).
In addition to all the factors just mentioned, this triple-complex function table is also breathtaking!
Its outstanding details, strong blue dial with eye-catching handmade guilloche-shaped decorative carbon fiber pattern and lively, give the watch a significant freshness and dynamic appearance.
This unique decoration is repeated on the platinum micro-rotor of the movement R CH 27 PS QI, which is plated with black rhodium, continuing the unlikely movement theme of this fashion replica watch. Complicated completion and execution, it represents the highest level of fine watchmaking!
From index finger to hands and sub-dial-don’t forget the romantic moon phase-it is a perfectly balanced watch ensemble.
