Bffffff, let’s take a deep breath, because the results have been amazing. What all who are dedicated to this world suspected has been fulfilled. As we say in castizo, he has joined the hunger with the desire to eat.
That’s how Saturday has paid the highest number ever for a wristwatch. Nothing more and nothing less than CHF7.300.000, or what is the same, a not inconsiderable 6,800,000 euros . We explain why.
Patek Philippe 5016A-010: the watch records.
One of the great classics of the “super complications” Patek Philippe between 1993 and 2011. The 5016 reference links in the same piece three complications most appreciated by devotees and collectors of watches: Tourbillon, minute repeater and perpetual calendar with moon phases. Moreover, if that were not enough, as a further detail perpetual calendar is anchored to a retrograde datary returning to the first day of the month after reaching 28, 29, 20 or 31 of the corresponding month. Summing figures, we are talking about a mechanism 506 pieces, worked one to one manually creating timekeepers certainly a higher draft.
Then there is a small detail in the area, apart from its blue, and is the shape of the windows of the day and month. Until now these windows 5016 were rectangular. This time the designers opted for an inverted trapezoidal shape that provides additional beauty. It is an insignificant detail, but connoisseurs value very much.
This reference was within reach of a few by price, but also by the difficulty of creating these models. Some of them was a man named Eric Clapton , who until this year- the year – earlier auctioned owned a unit in platinum.
This reference, which was also specially created for Only Watch 2015 , is the only clock under reference 5016, leading four digits behind the letter A ( acier ). In other words, the only 5016 of history made in the nobler metal, steel.
If a piece that is already out of print, and is considered one of the ever produced most beautiful watches will endow a lacquered dial a blue ever made for that reference, a box in a material never before used for that reference and background charitable cause. Perhaps these results are given.But if it solves the equation which is nothing more and nothing less than Patek Philippe, you can only expect records and never before seen results. King of Kings!
