Another insane Steel Patek Philippe – The Split Seconds Chronograph Ref. 1436

During their first deal, Phillips unloaded one of the two known  Patek Philippe Ref. 130 Single Button Chronograph in hardened steel  for no under $5 Million/CHF 4.65 Million (with an expected value of CHF 1,000,000/CHF 2,000,000), a watch that is presently popular for being the most costly steel observe at any point sold and the third most costly wristwatch ever. With the November Auction Two, Phillips may have another record breaker, for the sake of the Patek Philippe Steel Split Seconds Chronograph Reference 1436.

The ref. 1436 is one of the best Patek ever and one of just two vintage split second chronograph references created by the “old maison“. Normally, these were cased in yellow gold, and just a modest number were completed in pink gold. Be that as it may, in view of explores, just two stainless steel editions were created during the 1940s.

The Patek Philippe Steel Split Seconds Chronograph Reference 1436 to be sold here is thus one of just two known reference 1436 in tempered steel, made and completed during the 1940s. It was first sold in 1949 and it has only seen three proprietors since its unique buy. Moreover, the general condition is staggering. It is assessed to CHF 1,500,000/CHF 3,000,000 and could along these lines, conceivably, break the past record of the Ref. 130.

A Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Chronograph Reference 2499 First Series, the remarkable yellow gold release with Champagne dial

The References 2499 (whatever the series) are chalices for authorities. With regards to First Series, we’re before dream machines, because less than four dozen were created. Recall at the Patek Philippe 175th commemoration … One of the four Ref. 2499 in pink gold achieved CHF 2,629,000 , a watch that turned out to be exceptional on account of the French calendar engravings. The Ref. 2499 that Phillips is going to sell is in any event as intriguing and uncommon, as it is additionally a first series and furthermore an interesting version since it is the simply one to be brought into the world with a champagne dial (a reality that is authenticated by the Extract of the Archive).

It again comes in a staggering condition – take a gander at the hauls and the dial and you’ll understand what we mean here (it could well be unpolished). The case is made of 18k yellow gold. Thinking about the extraordinariness and the magnificence of this watch, the assessment is high at CHF 800,000/CHF 1,400,000 – however not very high, and we could see again another record breaker.

An über-cool and REAL James Bond Watch – the Rolex Submariner 5513 from 007 film “Live and Let Die”

Clearly, this is a dazzling watch! Itself, a Rolex Submariner 5513 is a decent vintage watch. Nonetheless, when you realize that this model was adjusted and afterward worn by Sir Roger Moore in 007 movie “Live and Let Die”, the story becomes to be truly novel and energizing. Disregard the purported “James Bond” Submariner Ref. 6538 , Phillips is going to sell a TRUE James Bond watch – and indeed, it accompanies the contraptions. It you look carefully, you’ll see the particular profile of the bezel, a buzz-saw bezel to be precise, that spun and could slice through rope. Another (fanciful) element of this watch was an hyper escalated attractive field with the capacity to redirect projectiles (or to unfasten dresses) – highlights that are clarified on the sketch underneath. (note that this watch was profoundly altered, including the development that comes up short on its second hand).

This piece of unadulterated coolness, delivered in 1972, is signed inside the caseback “Roger Moore 007” (endorsed by hand, by him) and has an assessment of CHF 150,000/CHF 250,000 (an assessment that could without much of a stretch be exploded, considering the cost came to by more old style Rolex Submariners).

Rolex Daytona “Solo Quicksilver” Reference 6239

What’s so extraordinary about this Rolex Daytona that could legitimized its CHF 250,000/CHF 500,000 assessment? This release is in truth called the “Solo Rolex Quicksilver”, in light of the fact that not at all like each other reference 6239, the model name “Cosmograph” is missing. You can look, whatever the shade of the dial (silver or dark) or the release (old style or Paul Newman), the “Cosmograph” engraving is (almost) consistently present.

This perhaps interesting watch was on the the cover of Ultimate Rolex Daytona, composed by Italian gatherer Pucci Papaleo. This “Solo Rolex” Daytona is important for the most extraordinary versions conceivable and could likewise be sold at a more noteworthy cost than its assessment (recall this  Albino Daytona 6263 claimed by Eric Clapton sold at CHF 1,325,000 ).

A potentially special twofold marked Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Paul Newman Ref. 6241, Retailed by Hermes

Itself, a vintage Rolex Daytona, regardless of whether a “normal” release or a “exotic” Paul Newman variant, isn’t incredibly uncommon. Obviously, you won’t see one ordinary however it’s not the most uncommon piece of watchmaking existing on earth. In any case, there are not many things that can make a Cosmograph Daytona more unique than another (like for example the independent mark seen previously). First, having a Paul Newman dial makes it sort of cool (yet not very uncommon however). At that point, having one in full yellow gold (counting the first wristband) is again a decent sign – it becomes to be less “usual“. Being a Ref. 6241 (along these lines with a bakelite bezel and non-screwed, siphon pushers – perhaps the most wonderful release) again brings some extravagance. So what we could have here is a pleasant Rolex Daytona, in generally excellent condition and, as a matter of fact, a piece of unadulterated vintage coolness.

BUT, there’s more on this watch… Something that makes it perhaps (indeed, unquestionably) exceptional: a twofold signature – yet this time, not on the dial, as we’re used to see on other twofold marked watches. The caseback of this Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Paul Newman Ref. 6241 is engraved with the name of the French retailer “HERMES”. Additionally, the caseback is stepped with French gold import marks and the stamp of Rolex France. Affirmed by Hermès in Paris, this very watch was retailed by Hermès and sold on 30 November 1971.

You’ll be completely permitted to say that is only a little detail. Notwithstanding, in the realm of collectible watches (and much more in the realm of collectible Rolex watches), these sort of subtleties have an immense effect and (kind of) clarify the high assessment (CHF 300,000/CHF 600,000). Like the “Solo Quicksilver” above, this double-marked Hermes/Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Paul Newman Ref. 6241 is such a prize for authorities, a vessel that nobody else can have.

A 1920s Audemars Piguet Minute Repeater retailed via Cartier

If there’s something that Audemars Piguet was good at, it was minute repeaters. They even showed as of late that they are still awesome at it (with the crazy  Concept RD1 ). Be that as it may, you likely wonder why we’re talking AP, as the watch appeared here has Cartier composed on the dial. Cartier, similar to Tiffany or a few different gem dealers, used to be retailer for a few watch brands (like Patek or Rolex) and this watch was made by Audemars Piguet and marked Cartier. It’s an ideal illustration of a 1920s watch, with a tortue-style case in platinum and (staggering) Breguet numerals. What is appropriately astonishing is the size of the case and the slenderness of the profile – take a gander at the thickness modern rehashing watches…

This 1920s Audemars Piguet Minute Repeater retailed via Cartier was initially bought by Henry Haven Windsor, Jr., the child of the organizer of Popular Mechanics magazine. It is assessed at CHF 300,000/CHF 600,000 (and indeed, not just Patek and Rolex watches can have insane estimations).

A Vacheron & Constantin “Cornes de Vache” Chronograph Reference 6087 in pink gold

This watch couldn’t be more real, as Vacheron-Constantin just dispatched a re-issue, in a more present day way . It’s an significant watch for Vacheron-Constantin as it was the last chronograph made by the manufacture until 1989. As detailed by the  Hour Lounge  (Vacheron-Constantin’s own blog), the 6087 was delivered in just 36 pieces (28 in yellow gold, 6 in pink gold and 2 in platinum – note that the 2 platinum versions were made later, during the 1990s, with an alternate case) and it is one of the most extraordinary and most collectible watches from Vacheron-Constantin. The 6087 accompanied a 35mm case with these typical cow horn drags, round pushers and a water safe case. Inside was ticking the Calibre 492.

The one offered today is one of the six made in pink gold, making it an amazingly uncommon watch – hence supporting the significance of this reference for authorities. It has an expected cost of CHF 50,000/CHF 100,000 (something that remains incredibly low compared to some vintage Patek, with a lower family and rarity… this 6087 merits much more).


Bonus – One of the 3 known Patek Philippe Nautilus 3700/1A, retailed and endorsed by Gübelin (with unique box)

The early Nautilus is certainly perhaps the most wail after present day sports watches. With its plan made by Gerald Genta, the Reference 3700/1A was underway for not exactly 10 years and is the most pined for reference of the Nautilus product offering, warmly known as the “Jumbo” by collectors. According to grant, this model is one of the solitary three models enhanced with the Gübelin retailer signature, making one of the most uncommon Nautilus possible.

The Patek Philippe Nautilus 3700/1A still holds its unique stopper box, and besides is accompanied by a concentrate from the archives.
