5 Watches Event and Agen Domino that You Couldn’t Forget
The Patek Philippe Titanium Collection
In my previous life, I was a partner master at Sotheby’s, and in that previous life I had the chance to see some INSANE pieces, including the Henry Graves Jr. Supercomplication (which was epic). Yet, the one accumulation that emerges to me as the coolest was the Titanium Collection back 2014. This gathering of watches had a place a solitary proprietor who appointed eight remarkable pieces with five in titanium.

The lord of the gathering was the reference 5001T Sky-Moon Agen Domino yet the one that stood out to me the most was the reference 3928T-001, a straightforward time-just reference with Breguet numerals. Flip it over and the manual-winding gauge 177 is on full display…through an impeccable 9.44 ct., D shading, perfect square emerald-cut jewel (sign me up!).
The J.B. Champion That Sold For $4 Million
In the event that you don’t think about the J.B. Champion watch, you should. This watch sold at Christie’s for over $4 million of every 2012 in an indistinguishable closeout from Eric Clapton’s 2499P (which sold for $3.65 million). J.B. Agen Domino was a VVIP customer of Patek Philippe after the war and was an unbelievably effective criminal protection legal advisor (who carried on with his best life). The J.B. Champion watch was an adjusted reference 2548 that housed a unique development delivered by Patek Philippe intended for rivalry in the Geneva Observatory “Concours de Chronomoetrie.” There were 30 developments created to specific particulars with the goal that they could contend in Category D-Wristwatches and the measurement couldn’t be more than 30mm and have an aggregate surface region of 706.86mm. Just two developments were cased and Agen Domino ‘s watch was one of them (in platinum obviously).
The Only Patek Philippe 3448 In Red Gold
Its a well known fact that I cherish the 3448 (it’s the best!). Path back when, in 2011, Christie’s offered a potentially novel reference 3448 in red gold. As you may know, the 3448 was the principal programmed unending logbook wristwatch delivered by Patek Philippe. At the point when initially presented, individuals were uncertain of it’s retro case shape with rakish carries, yet it has now turned into an exceedingly looked for after reference at sell off.
Regularly created in yellow Agen Domino and the more uncommon white gold with a couple in platinum yet none in pink or red gold. Well Christie’s discovered one in red gold in the back of a customer’s sheltered, no less. There hasn’t been something this troublesome for the 3448 since the Senza Luna. The watch was assessed for CHF 500,000-1,000,000 and got over CHF 2,000,000.
At the point when The Cost Of Vintage Daytonas Changed Forever
We as a whole realize that Daytonas are costly, and keeping in mind that today the normal cost of a vintage Paul Newman Daytona is somewhere in the range of $120,000 to $250,000, that wasn’t generally the case. The Christie’s Rolex Daytona: “Lesson One” deal made by Aurel Bacs was absolutely pivotal.
It was a profoundly curated offer of just the best Daytona references in the best condiition (like the way Bacs’ deals at Phillips are taken care of nowadays). The closeout was a crushing succes,sand Ben ascertained that the normal watch cost well finished $200,000, which was crazy at the time and puts the offer of the Paul Newman Daytona in appropriate setting.
Three Strange Rolexes
While these are late events, it’s insane that three super-bizarre vintage Rolex observes all hit the market in 2017. To begin with, there was this white gold Submariner Prototype sold at Christie’s that I can’t escape my head. At that point there was the two-tone Daytona at Phillips and the Explorer/Day-Date half breed at Christies. Every one of the three guaranteed to be potentially novel, and kid are they ever. The white gold Submariner went ahead to be the most costly Rolex Sub at any point sold at sell off for $628,572. The Day-Date sold for CHF275,000 and the two-tone Daytona sold for CHF 218,750.
The Cartier Tortoise Clock
While there’s a decent possibility you’ve never known about this Cartier Tortoise Clock, it’s an unequaled awesome one. This clock came available to be purchased at Sotheby’s through the group of the first proprietor who had no clue what it was. It was relegated from an irregular telephone approach a customary day and ended up being a standout amongst the most energizing pieces available to be purchased (alongside the previously mentioned Titanium Collection). On the off chance that you know anything about Cartier, you know they used to do some inconceivable things back in the mid twentieth century and made the absolute most excellent work area timepieces and timekeepers around. This tortoise one wound up bringing over $900,000 (about twofold its gauge).
