The word “second generation” has a complicated meaning, like a crown and a shackle. “X Second Generation” often means inheriting the wealth, status, reputation of the previous generation, and carrying all the glorious past. What he has to do is to open an unknown future under the eyes of people’s expectations.
The story of Patek Philippe‘s original Nautilus 3700 has probably been told a hundred or a thousand times. This watch has changed the development trajectory of Patek Philippe and, to some extent, the entire industry.
When the popularity of 3700 gradually subsided, Patek Philippe launched a slimmer 3800 in line with the market, with a diameter reduced from 42mm to 37.5mm, which fits more people’s wrist sizes and has more design choices.
In most cases, the charm of the first generation is definitely higher than that of the second generation, both in terms of feelings and collection value, so today, 3800 is rarely mentioned, but it is undeniable that it is a masterpiece.
3 different 3800
Since the early 1980s, Nautilus has been built on three basic models: the first generation 3700, the second generation 3800 and the quartz movement 4700. The 4700 was launched a year earlier than the 3800, with a diameter of 27mm. Women’s watch.
As mentioned at the beginning of the article, the 3800 was born in response to the market, because the trend at that time was still more keen on small-size styles. Compared with the 3700 and 4700, the 3800 has a wider range of metal and disk configurations and rich choices, so pay the bill Naturally more consumers.
The 3800 first appeared on the Patek Philippe price list in 1982, but the fact is that it was developed in 1981. This delay in sales can be regarded as a routine operation.
Looking back at the entire history, the designers of 3800 have developed more than 20 different styles of dials. You may see a lot of conventional stick-shaped hour markers in various colors, but sun-patterned dials, telephone dials and classical Roman numeral hour markers may be touched. It’s your blind spot, don’t worry, look down.
Rod-shaped hour markers in different colors
The most common and easiest to recognize is the blue bar-shaped hour scale, which will evolve into different shades over time.
The gold shell version of the first generation 3700 is not much produced, only about 1,500. The number of gold discs in this case is more scarce, but in the 3800 disc design, the frequency of gold appearance has become higher.
The blue plate has always been the most popular style, but the gold plate 3800/1J has gradually attracted more and more collectors due to its monochrome appearance and retro aesthetics.
For an old Patek Philippe lover, the situation couldn’t be better.
Even in the high-end market, the way people sell watches has changed a lot in 2020. It turns out that Phillips has a strong retail business on its Perpetual platform, headed by the famous James Marks, but they still continue to commission, organize and sell watches to Geneva, Hong Kong and New York. Flagship sales in major markets. It turns out that the best watches will continue to bring extraordinary prices, and Paul Boutros’ “Racing Pulse” sales next month will be what any watch enthusiast would hope for, whether they plan to bid or not.
Christie’s Auction House and Sotheby’s Auction House’s other two big companies have adopted different strategies and now conduct regular (real weekly) online sales on the auction platform, and sometimes even conduct different sales in different offices at the same time. For example, when I write this article, you can choose to bid for a watch in no less than five Sotheby’s watch auctions, and you can choose (but not bid) one sixth. You will also receive notifications for the sale of the seventh and eighth watches, but you cannot view or bid for the time being.
I didn’t mention that this is a bad idea at all-Sotheby’s continues to sell well here, but as a person who loves watch auctions and the drama involved, it is difficult to keep up. Christie’s auction house is located between the Phillips auction house and Sotheby’s auction house. In the summer, they include several high-end watches in large multi-category auctions. They only hold the annual New York December auction online, but their important watch auctions will The live auction in Hong Kong will be released on November 28. Since all these sporadic signals are sold around some very good watches and some very ordinary watches, it is easy to miss the fact that some great watches may be offered. This is why we are here today.
Patek Philippe 3448 Platinum Christie’s spent most of the time talking about Patek Philippe’s “Ruby Collection”, which indeed contains a gold 3448 reference with a ruby dial. I have never seen it before, which is undoubtedly a cool thing. It is important to note that the watch was made in 1965, but the dial was made and installed by Patek Philippe in 1990. Obviously, this work is done for very important customers, and even cooler is that the bezel has been factory modified to solve the problem of raised rubies. Hour mark. Very cool, but not the 3448 I am most excited about. Nonetheless, our colleagues in Japan made a beautiful photo report on the collection here. No, the previous four products are another 3448, but it is platinum. It looks absolutely stunning.
3448 is the most durable and one of the most beautiful vintage Patek Philippe vintages for me. Large diameter-complicated, but self-winding. This is Patek Philippe’s first self-winding perpetual calendar, and in the best way it is a completely modern pocket watch. It is also one of the few intricate antique watches of Patek Philippe, which once left the factory in a platinum factory.
These watches are highly sought after by serious collectors around the world, and it is a feat to discover any 3448 white gold strap. Finding a seemingly robust and primitive state is quite another matter. These watches have been around $500,000 for many years, but when an excellent example comes out, everything is possible. In June 2019, Christie’s auction house sold what I think is the best example of 3448 white I have ever seen. They sold for $1.155 million, with an estimated price of $300,000 to $500,000. In this example, Christie’s called it one of the 50 known watches, only one of 25 in the first series of watches. Apart from that, they said this is probably one of the three best known examples in the world. They continue to provide detailed information about the first series of dials, such as the fact that the early dials were engraved with enamel lettering and scales-only the “Swiss” at the bottom was painted with black paint-a clever little way to know if you renew View the early or late 3448. The back of the dial shows “1119045”, if you look at the excerpt, it is the movement number of the watch. The outstanding performance of Christie’s allows viewers to watch all the key components of 3448 if they are considering paying a world record price for the replica watches china. By the way, this is exactly what Christie’s suggested, and the estimated value of the watch is US$932,864-1,554,774.
I will not say how this watch compares to the watches sold in June 2019, because although I did see one of them, I did not have the opportunity to see this one with my own eyes. I would say that it is really great. Although the platinum bracelet is not born on the watch, it is really suitable and adds to the charm of the watch. Of course, you can remove it from the Patek Philippe white gold bracelet and wear it as you like. 3448 white has always been my personal pursuit. I missed the opportunity to own it, but it made me also keen to see these exquisite, high-quality watches on the market. To learn more about this 3448 perpetual calendar, see Christie’s in Hong Kong on November 28.
Patek Philippe luxury 2526 white gold with confirmed enamel dial In the same auction, there is another Patek Philippe antique collection – 2526 platinum. Look, I won’t tell you why I will fall in love with all the songs and dances of 2526 again-if you will, here are 5,000 words from four and a half years ago. All in all, it may have the highest quality self-winding movement ever created, one of the most exquisite case shapes, and, if lucky, an unparalleled enamel dial. Any year 2526 is great. White metal is a dream. I was lucky enough to buy it many years ago and it is still one of the best watches in my hand. But to understand the nuances of white metal in the 2526s, some scholarships are needed. The vast majority of white metal 2526s between platinum and white gold (less than 50 as we know) have metal dials with diamond indexes. I happen to like these things too, like the pinnacle of 1950s style. Remember when this incredible Serpico Y Laino white gold watch with diamond markings was sold for $325,000 in 2017? Really
I’m not saying that enamel dials are better than metal dials in all respects-you can argue the other way around: metal dials make them easier to wear on a daily basis. That is a point of view that I would agree with. But I would say that enamel dial watches are more special to me. Because who else was making enamel dials at that time? In addition to finding 2526 platinum or platinum, you should also try to find a feature that has an extract to confirm that the enamel dial is actually born in this watch. Patek Philippe does offer the opportunity to exchange dials. In addition, some watches with enamel dials may not benefit from clearly stated excerpts and are not ideal (but not bad). Furthermore, since the 2526 dial has been highly praised, you can choose to use a new enamel dial to replace the damaged dial. We published a story about this service in October 2016.
The detailed notes from Christie’s Auction House provide you with the details that make 2526 Platinum so special. “There are approximately 2,400 gold pieces made, 360 pieces of gold, 70 pieces of platinum, and 70 pieces of platinum. According to research, although platinum and platinum are manufactured in the same amount, the platinum version is actually rarer than gold. So far, only about 20 have been found. A platinum watch, and now 24 platinum watches are publicly known.” They did not mention how many of the 20 enamel dials and metal dials they found, but assuming that less than half of them, this is indeed a very rare It was found that, in fact, the extract confirmed that it was enamel and there were no visible cracks on the dial.
Christie’s auction house once again brilliantly displayed the various items of any high luxury store that 2526 collectors want to see, including the movement, the inside of the back cover and so on. Interestingly, at least from online viewing, there is no service mark inside the back cover of 2526 and 3448. For creative fanatics, this is an amazing thing. The estimate here is $310,955 to $414,606. Obviously, the money is a lot, but it is difficult to price this rare thing. I don’t remember the last time the enamel dial platinum 2526 was publicly confirmed-I’m not sure it’s been out since I came out. More than five years ago, we saw a beautiful platinum example at Phillips, sold at a price of $227,000, but it was difficult to compensate for the product ten years ago. Since then, the aforementioned diamond dial was sold for $325,000 in 2017. The extraordinary platinum, Tiffany signature watch earned $642,000 30 months ago-these are two high-quality whites to be sold in the past five years. Metal 2526s instance.
Since the original Patek Philippe Nautilus (replica Patek Philippe Nautilus) was launched, it has been more than 40 years old, and now this classic timepiece is more popular than ever. Nautilus (ref. 3700/001A) was first introduced in the mid-1970s and was designed by the legendary Gérald Genta. Due to its pioneering role in high-end, luxury sports watches, it has become a veritable watch icon.
Nautilus was released later than Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak and proposed a different view of luxury sports watches, although like Royal Oak (also designed by Mr. Gengta), it is made of steel (standard version) ). The early 1970s was an era of great changes in the watchmaking industry, and the concept of steel luxury watches was a truly revolutionary idea. In 1976, the advent of Patek Philippe’s Nautilus firmly changed the direction of luxury sports watch design-providing Audemars Piguet with a real competitor to Royal Oak, which was only four years old at the time. The reference number 3700 Nautilus is usually called “Huge” due to its relatively large size during this period.
referee. 3700/001A is not only unprecedented in design, but also in initial pricing to consumers. When Nautilus was released, which was quite impressive at the time, comparable to many Patek Philippe gold replica watches. At the time of its release, the world had begun to shift to the highly commercialized quartz watch industry. In 1969, Seiko introduced the first quartz watch-its success (and its successors) brought the mechanical watch industry to a very low level of production in the early 1980s. Due to the innovative design of Nautilus, it is estimated that only 3,300 cases of 3700/001A have been produced.
Strikingly, it is said that Gerald Genta has drafted a 3700 design, which is only a few meters away from Patek Philippe executives. Today, his “five minutes work” is considered one of the masterpieces of modern watch design. Its etymology comes from Jules Verne’s novel “Twenty Thousand Alliances Under the Sea”, after the “Nautilus” submarine used by Captain Nemo.

Like the Royal Oak, Nautilus’s waterproof technology (120 meters) requires innovative strategies. Gerald Genta’s inspiration for the iconic Nautilus is to imitate the safety “porthole” window on the transatlantic ocean liner, which consists of two pieces, a solid monolithic and an octagonal bezel. It is fixed by four lateral screws (hidden in 3 places). And 9 o’clock), firmly fix the case together.
This Nautilus 3700/001A stainless steel Online replica watch achieves the perfect balance between practical function and elegant design. Both the case and bracelet are finished with beveled, polished and grained surfaces. The original bracelet (with a complete link) has almost no elasticity. The 3700 case has a diameter of 42 mm and a thickness of only 7.6 mm. It is a perfect blend of perspective and size. The inner case back cover can correctly display the unique serial number (532 XXX) of the watch under the manufacturer’s signature, and the reference number “3700/1”. The underside of the hinged “ear” (located at the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions) also displays a 3-digit serial number, which appropriately matches the last 3 digits on the back cover of the inner case.
The hand-crafted ridge dial made by Stern Fréres shows horizontal grooves with dark gray. The applied hour markers are full of tri gas and have an external minute scale with a “dash”, the original polished baton pointer (with a luminous insert) and a date hole at 3 o’clock (with the original date dial). In this example, the index marks and hands are made of platinum and are indicated by the lowercase Greek letter “sigma” at the bottom of the dial. Over time, these platinum index marks have begun to oxidize, showing wonderful eye-fixing effects in some places.
Nautilus 3700/001A is equipped with a 28-255C ultra-thin movement, which is derived from the legendary ultra-thin JLC 920 movement of Jaeger-LeCoultre. The 2121 movement is based on the Jaeger-LeCoultre’s first project, the 2120 movement in 1967. It was funded and contributed by Patek Philippe, and used Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin. ) Is famous for its adoption (in Royal Oak 5402 and VC 222). The 28-255C movement uses Patek Philippe’s famous free pendulum gyro balance wheel. Four ruby wheels support a full-diameter rotor, which runs on a beryllium rail to maintain stability. The solid gold rotor is made in the classic Patek Philippe style with round Geneva stripes. The Patek Philippe 28-255C movement is still one of the thinnest all-rotor automatic winding movements in the world, and is regarded by many as the most exquisite and advanced watch movement ever made. The important thing is that its movement serial number (1.303.XXX) corresponds to its year of production.
There are two versions of Patek Philippe Nautilus 3700, with the reference number 3700/001A, and later with the reference number. 3700 / 011A-Bracelet design has two subtle changes. Reference link. 3700/001 is significantly wider and straighter than the reference. 3700 / 011A, with a more exaggerated taper of the bracelet. In addition to this, due to the larger size of each link, there are fewer bracelet links found in earlier examples (such as 3700/001A). Steel 3700/001A (with larger bracelet) was produced from 1976-82. The clasp of the 3700/001A bracelet corresponds to the earlier example of the 3700/001A, without the words “Nautilus” engraved next to “PATEK PHILIPPEGENÉVE”, “STEEL INOX” and “SWISS MADE”.
This example was manufactured in 1977 and is accompanied by an accompanying archive excerpt to confirm that the date of sale (or the authorized distributor in this case) is June 14, 1977.
This 3700/001A Nautilus comes with an original, highly collectible Patek Philippe cork box and the accompanying Archive Extract (dated October 10, 2006).
In 2006, Patek Philippe launched the 3011 anniversary of the Nautilus, with the number 5711/1A, which itself has achieved a cult-like status. Therefore, our original model 3700/001A represents a rare opportunity to obtain today’s founding reference of one of today’s most original and ideal retro sports watches.

This Patek Philippe Nautilus 3700/001A comes with an excerpt from Archives (dated 2006) and an original cork box (original gray watch holder with cork inserts that may have a metal top). The surface of the case and bracelet is beautifully treated, with beveled, polished and granular surfaces-only minor surface marks/scratches are shown. The case and strap are original models with appropriate signatures (wide chain strap, produced between 1976-82, but “PATEK PHILIPPEGENÉVE”, “STEEL INOX” and “SWISS MADE” are not engraved “Nautilus” words) deduction). The elasticity of the bracelet is very small.

Patek Philippe’s high-tech watch followed closely, which was the industry’s first watch with a compliant mechanism.
Patek Philippe’s most important new release at Baselworld 2017 does not boast its most complicated movement or new case style, but the latest Advanced with a redesigned silicon hairspring The Research movement, and more importantly, it is a compatible movement in the second time zone.
The early quartets of advanced research watches were all calendars (three years and one permanent), while the new Aquanaut uses Patek Philippe’s sporty dual time zone watch as the basis.
Functionally, it is the same movement as the stock Aquanaut Travel Time reference. 5164 (the same caliber number), but the Advanced Research version conducts business in a completely different way. The first innovation introduced by the new Aquanaut is the modified Spiromax hairspring.
Patek Philippe’s first silicon balance spring was associated with Advanced Research Ref in 2006. Launch together. 5350. Specifically, the balance spring is made of Silinvar from Patek Philippe. The trademark of silicon is silicon covered in a thin oxide layer that protects the balance spring from temperature changes (and almost all such in the entire industry). The same silicon is used for the balance spring).
For ten years, almost all Patek Philippe movements produced today are equipped with the first-generation Spiromax hairspring, which has a single outer end curve.
Patek Philippe launched a new and improved Spiromax hairspring through Aquanaut Advanced Research. The hairspring has two end curves, which can reproduce the traditional Grossmann curve (in the inner end of the spring) and Phillips curve (in the outer coil). The balance spring of the SWISS AAA replica watches.
This is achieved by slightly bulging the width on the inner and outer curves of the spring, and only due to the DRIE technology used to make silicon parts, very fine adjustments are possible.
The result is that the second-generation Spiromax respirator breathes more concentrically no matter where it is, thus maintaining the same center of gravity.
According to Patek Philippe, the traditional movement equipped with the first-generation Spiromax is adjusted from -3 to +2 seconds per day, but with the new hairspring, the deviation can be reduced to -1 to +2 seconds per day. Unlike traditional hairsprings, Spiromax is flatter because there are no coils, and it is easy to install without adjustment.
The second technological advancement of Aquanaut’s advanced research is the compliance mechanism of travel time display. The normal travel time mechanism showing the second time zone consists of 37 parts, while the advanced research version only requires 12 parts.
It all depends on the compliance mechanism, which is derived from the research done by Professor Simon Henein. Professor Simon Henein is the Patek Philippe of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne. ) Chairman.
The compliance mechanism is an articulated flexible structure that can transmit force, but is made of a single seamless piece (usually plastic and made by 3D printing). The field is still in its infancy, but it is developing rapidly.
Patek Philippe replica applied a compliant mechanism to the second time zone display, replacing the traditional lever and spring network with a crab-like structure with four crossed leaf springs-one pair for pushers and the other for The beak, the second time zone pointer of the rotating gear is backward or forward.
When the push rod is pushed to change the second time zone, the entire structure will slide and bend-but because the compliant mechanism is integrated, almost zero friction can be achieved. The component has no joints or pivots, so there are no friction surfaces, so no lubrication is required.
It can also make more effective use of the limited space inside the case: the compliant mechanism reduces the space by 20% and becomes thinner by 15%. Of course, because it is one piece, there is no need for assembly-only four screws are needed instead of the 10 screws in the traditional travel time mechanism.
The compliance mechanism of the second time zone is significantly different from the mechanism of regular travel time, although the difference is not significant. The new mechanism is smoother, and there is almost no “click” when the hands are engaged and the second time zone hands are jumping. That may just be due to the specific prototype exhibited at the Baselworld. The final production parts arriving later this year will be confirmed.
Although plastics are usually used on 3D printers to quickly produce compliant mechanisms in other fields, the compliant mechanisms in Aquanaut Travel Time are milled from steel on CNC machines. The machining required to produce a compliant mechanism is very complicated, especially for arms that cross but do not touch.
The production of parts from steel allows Patek Philippe to apply traditional finishing techniques to compliant mechanical devices, so that the surface has straight lines and inclined edges.
Patek Philippe prides itself on compliant machinery in terms of concept, production and finishing. This is why the dial is hollowed out to reveal all the glory of machinery.
Unfortunately, this design choice has been widely known because it will interrupt the dial without warning, exposing an unfamiliar appearance. In any case, Advanced Research watches are limited editions. If you want, it can be said to be a watch of a certain concept, which means that opening the dial is unlikely to be repeated.
From a philosophical point of view, the compliance mechanism is fascinating because it simplifies the second time zone mechanism, contrary to the trend of complex movements commonly seen in high-end watchmaking. Although it takes a long time to produce the mechanism on a milling machine, it significantly reduces the time required for assembly and adjustment.
In this respect, it is similar to using silicon in a balance wheel or escapement, eliminating the need to adjust and adjust these key components. But although the escapement is vital, as the cliché goes, it is the core of the movement, but they are small and difficult to observe. The compliance mechanism of the second time zone is greater, and somehow it feels that more technology is being injected into the best fake watches for men.
It is even more fascinating to imagine the possible impact of other complications using compatible mechanisms. What is a chronograph without springs and levers?
Patek Philippe offers minute repeater Shopping replica watches in a wider color range than all other watch manufacturers. No wonder why knowledgeable enthusiasts who are passionate about Patek Philippe’s creations keep going back and buying more.
This year’s arrival will bring about three major complications. Ref. It can be simply expressed as a triple complication. 5208P, released at the 2011 Basel International Watch and Jewellery Show. Self-winding Grand Complication watch with minute repeater, single-button chronograph, instantaneous perpetual calendar with holes and moon phase.
The new Patek Philippe Triple Complication Ref. 5208P is another achievement that highlights the leadership of the complex watchmaking workshop in Geneva. Equipped with a minute repeater, a single-button chronograph and an instantaneous perpetual calendar, it has unparalleled perfection and is the most challenging difficulty.
This is the second triple complication of Patek Philippe in a short time. In 2008, the first model was Ref. 5207 with minute repeater, instant perpetual calendar with aperture display and tourbillon; in 2011, the second one was Ref. 5208P has a timer, minute repeater timer and instant calendar with aperture display. This is the manufacturer’s first triple complication equipped with a chronograph, and is highly anticipated by collectors and complication fans.
In addition, the new Ref. 5208P is one of the very few existing highly complex watches with a self-winding movement. In the end, this is the first true Grand Complication that integrates Silinvar® components derived from silicon: the revolutionary Pulsomax® escapement and Spiromax® balance spring. Therefore, this is an impressive example of how Patek Philippe’s tradition and innovation interact under one roof.
In Patek Philippe’s latest Grand Complication watch series, Ref. The 5208P ranks second, following the astronomical tourbillon, and in Ref. prior to. 5207 (Minute repeater, tourbillon, perpetual calendar with aperture display) and Ref. 5216 (Minute repeater, tourbillon, perpetual calendar with retrograde date).

Patek Philippe 5303R-001 Minute Repeater Tourbillon Tourbillon watch, as the name suggests, has two high complexity. Usually, hammers and gongs are placed on one side of the dial so that the wearer can watch animated glasses accompanied by a chime sequence. Angus Davies briefly introduced what makes the minute repeater the most challenging complication.
Talk to most watchmakers and they will regard the minute repeater timing as the most challenging complex function in the execution process. The minute repeater can be traced back to some time before street lighting. The wearer usually cannot read the night time, so the “slide” on the pocket watch can be activated and the current time can be heard.
The time on the pocket watch is the ringtones in the following order: the hour of the first hammer and gong (bass), two quarters of the hammer and gong (two tones), and finally, the second hammer and the quarter of the minute sound. Gong (treble). When striking a quarter, there will be a small gap between the two hammers, which adds to the charm of this complex function.
Usually, the gong is made of steel and hit with a hammer. The striking mechanism is very complicated and requires special-shaped racks, snails, cams and wheels. The most challenging part of making a minute repeater is related to the gong. The steel wire is usually shaped into a circle according to the contour of a circular watch case. The gong is heated repeatedly to harden the metal and then quenched. By the way, the internal design of the shell is designed to optimize the sound of the chime sequence.
For many years, Patek Philippe‘s gongs have been purchased from Henri-Daniel Piguet. Piguet quenches the gong with cold water, which passes through springs near the horse ranch and paddock. This water inevitably contains horse urine, which is said to improve the quality of Biotec gongs. Maison continues to have production facilities in the area.
Once two gongs are produced, they must be tuned. This requires removing literally micrometers from the steel surface. You must be extremely careful when performing this task, because the gong has taken many days to produce. If too much material is removed, the gong must be discarded. When both gongs are completed, they are fixed to the basic movement and the case with the “plot”. This will keep the two gongs in place to ensure they never touch.
Looking closely at the movement of the new Patek Philippe 5303R-001 minute repeater tourbillon, you will find that the brand’s Calatrava logo is located on the top of the centrifugal governor to ensure that all the strikes of the gong have the same duration.
Finally, the Patek Philippe 5303R-001 minute repeater tourbillon, as the name suggests, includes a tourbillon, which is another highly complex function. The device reduces the adverse effects of gravity on the regulating organs, and therefore improves the accuracy. This incredible timepiece perfectly demonstrates the exquisite craftsmanship of this historic Maison.
Patek Philippe has become one of the talented interpreters of time music since the first pocket watch with a minute repeater (1845). This extraordinary expertise stands out even among the most extraordinary products, such as an astronomical tourbillon fashion replica watches with a cathedral gong with a minute repeater function or a Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime with five chronograph functions, including two Products with global patents.
The manufacturer also offers a wide selection of regularly produced minute repeaters, watches with classic or cathedral gongs, and models with minute repeaters, with or without other complications (perpetual calendar, tourbillon, world time, chronograph) table). But Patek Philippe has never made a minute repeater with a timekeeping device, which is visible on the side of the dial.
referee. 5303 will be a limited edition watch worldwide on the occasion of the “Singapore Watch Art Exhibition” in 2019.
Now, make a slight modification to Ref. The 5303 minute repeater tourbillon has become part of the current Patek Philippe series. For enthusiasts asking questions about timepieces, this new complication is eye-catching because of its open structure without the traditional dial. There is no need to remove the ladies replica watches from the wrist to appreciate the repeater mechanism (for the first time using a hammer and gong).
This is a further embodiment of Patek Philippe’s customer-centric development philosophy. Transparency also applies to the tourbillon: the back of the case can be seen under the seconds dial at 6 o’clock. In this truly perfect structure, the lightweight steel parts gleam against the background of rose gold plated panels.
The aesthetics of the hand-wound movement R TO 27 PS has been cleverly modified to emphasize its appeal. For example, certain components are perforated, which is a common phenomenon of bone movement. Of course, Patek Philippe also used the tradition of hand-winding movement parts: it decorated the plate with Geneva round texture, painted the grooves with exquisite decoration, and decorated the hammer with a round satin finish.
The unique rose gold case is decorated with a wide, curved and polished bezel, as well as white gold inlays, decorated with leaf carvings, adding luster to the strap and strap lugs. The platinum sliding cover on the side of the left case activates the minute repeater and has the same pattern. The hour hand is a black lacquered sapphire crystal rim with rose gold pink markings. The movement can be admired through the sapphire crystal caseback and framed in platinum. Its hollow decoration echoes the case and repeater slider.
The wonderful courses in watchmaking artistry, elegance and handcrafted finishing complement the typical sounds of Patek Philippe minute repeater timepieces. Like every Patek Philippe minute repeater timepiece, the manufacturer’s president Thierry Stern has carefully evaluated the melody of this time.

In January 1995, Haltom’s brought the unique replica Patek Philippe Museum collection from Geneva to Fort Worth.
“Times of Life: Patek Philippe’s Legendary Watch” debuted at the Jewelry Charity Ball and then exhibited at the West Richardson Museum next to the Halton Museum in Sundance Square for 12 days.
Patek Philippe is planning to build the Geneva Museum, and when they last traveled to Texas, they shipped a series of precious rare watches. This is an amazing event, we received nearly 15,000 visitors. When the new generation of watch collection was introduced, some participants had fallen in love with the Swiss watchmaking industry.
The exhibition is displayed in 25 glass display cabinets – an astonishing number of Patek Philippe watches, including:

The best secret of Patek Philippe
The secret we are talking about is the bell of Patek Philippe’s 175th anniversary master. This beautiful timepiece has a dazzling white dial in a sparkling rose gold ring.
This complex timepiece takes 8 years to make. The diameter is 47 mm and the thickness is 16.1 mm. The movement has 1366 parts, including three gongs and three hammers, 20 complications and two dials.
The delicate case has 214 parts, including a hand-carved laurel wreath engraved with a laurel wreath.
It has 4 types of complications. A new complication is an alarm, which sets a time. Set the alarm to 7:30 and you will hear seven hours of sound and two quarter hours of sound. If it is set to 1 o’clock (only one easy-to-miss sound will be emitted at this time), the alarm will sound 12 hours at 12:58, three quarter hours and 13 minutes. Another new feature is the date repeater, which brings dates closer. http://www.chronosale.co
Over the past eight years, superb watchmaking and 18k rose gold Grandmaster Chime were born to celebrate Patek Philippe’s 175th anniversary. This romantic and charming piece houses 20 complex functions in a beautifully carved rotating case. A historic piece published in Geneva a few days ago, contains a Spiromax hairspring inside a beating heart. Made to the end of time-even after that, Master Chime can buy your watch for $2.5 million. Patek Philippe produced seven pieces, and Patek Philippe will keep one for the company museum, making Patek Philippe’s works the most popular timepiece of our time.
Collection from contemporary watches to antique watches
A client of mine recently contacted me when he was considering the possibility of recovering an antique watch. He already owns a beautiful set of contemporary watches, most of which come from the complex timepieces of Patek Philippe and A. Lange & Söhne. However, he felt it was time to delve into antique clocks and watches, allowing him to enjoy the other side of collecting watches-a world completely different from the past. It is conceivable that there is a big difference between buying a new watch in a boutique and buying an antique watch from the second-hand market.
First, we discussed the brand, period, style and materials he was looking for. The important thing is to understand the customer’s needs and why he should do so. This is just the beginning of a long journey to collect antique clocks. He expressed his desire for a white gold Patek Philippe chronograph with a calendar. As you know, Patek Philippe offers an incredible selection of calendar chronographs, including reference numbers 1518, 2499, 3970, 5020, 5004, 5970, and 5270. 2499 and reference 3970
Patek Philippe ref. 2499 may be one of the most iconic timepieces in history, but its low output means it is very precious and collectible. In fact, there are only 349 references. 2499 was once manufactured, and my customers think it is not the right time to invest more than $500,000 in watches. Therefore, the next step is to consider Patek Philippe ref. 3970, the dial is very similar to ref. 2499, but the output is higher. It is estimated that Patek Philippe produced 2400 to 3600 references. 3970. In addition, most experts agree that the value of this particular model is currently underestimated, making it a worthwhile investment object.
Although my client mentioned white gold, I suggest that he consider using rose gold because rose gold is an attractive color for chronographs. He agreed with the material and made some strict requirements. His future Patek Philippe is not only a reference. The original bracelet and buckle of the 3970 must be in an unpolished state, but must also be equipped with a complete set of kits, including the original packaging box, certificate of origin, archival documents, brochures and agenda.
Once the expectations are set, it is time to start the research. Patek Philippe ref. The production of 3970 was from 1986 to 2004, following ref. 2499. If the discount replica watches has a service life of more than 35 years, it is usually considered antique. 3970 will fall into the year label in a few years. Patek Philippe 3970 runs on the Lemania 2310 movement (the same movement as the Omega Speedmaster 321 movement) and runs on the CH27-70 movement. The 2499 is equipped with a movement based on Valjoux.
Patek Philippe 3970 is equipped with a 36 mm case, in addition to platinum, gold, white gold and rose gold. There are three different series in 3970. The first two most valuable collections have “Feuille” (leaf-shaped) hands and baton hour markers. The third series has baton center pointers. It is also worth mentioning that some cases are equipped with 18k gold screws to fix the case, while others use sapphire crystal. Because the bottom case made of pure gold has only been manufactured for three years, it is considered more valuable.
With this information, I determined that I had to search the first or second set of Patek Philippe reference books. 3970 rose gold with “Feuille” hands, baton hour markers and screw-in caseback in all gold.
Finally, we chose the perfect Patek Philippe ref. 3970 replica watches wholesale from private collectors. It is in a mint state and meets all the requirements previously set by my client. After receiving the watch, I personally checked the movement and the case number, along with a certificate of origin and archived documents. I went to Patek Philippe America in New York and asked them to check it out. Not only did they confirm that it was the original 3970 mint, but they also speculated that it might never be used-as we said in the business, it is a real gem.
Patek Philippe (Patek Philippe replica) is famous for its exquisite and complicated watch series, from the perpetual calendar to the minute repeater to the world timer, there are many in between. In addition to manufacturing complexity and complexity, Patek Philippe is also responsible for inventing complexity, such as the annual calendar. In the field of watchmaking, the complexity of the annual calendar is relatively young, and Patek Philippe first applied for a patent in 1996. Unlike cousins, the perpetual calendar does not require any adjustments when it is set correctly and keeps the winding. As the name implies, the annual calendar needs to be adjusted on March 1 every year.
Patek Philippe Annual Calendar 5146J
Part of Patek Philippe’s current catalogue, reference to the almanac. 5146 is the second generation of this model. It was first released in 2005 to replace the first Ref. 5035, and by adding the moon phase display and power reserve indicator and loosening the 24-hour sub-dial, some major changes have been made to the dial.
Patek Philippe 5146 watches cheap uses a 39 mm round case, available in gold, white gold, rose gold and platinum. referee. 5146J is the gold version, “J” stands for “Jaune”, and French stands for yellow. The case adopts a genuine Patek Philippe classic style, including elegant round arch bezel, elegant lugs and unprotected winding crown. Both sides of the case are equipped with sapphire crystal glass, the front is used to protect the dial, and the back is used to view the internal movement.
The dial of the Patek Philippe Annual Calendar 5146J is the home’s date window 6, a day dial on the left, a month dial on the right, the moon phase shows the time above, and 12 this specific next power storage indicator model includes the board The slate gray sunburst dial is in sharp contrast with the gold hour and hour hands. Speaking of hour markers, Patek Philippe chose to use Arabic numerals to make sticks at 3, 9 and 12.
Flip the reference. 5146J, you will get the view of the 324 S IRM QA LU self-winding movement, which provides power for the calendar and provides 35 to 45 hours of power. There are familiar brand logos, such as the Calatrava cross engraved on the gold tourbillon, the Patek Philippe quality seal, and, of course, the exquisite finish of the movement. The annual calendar movement can be distinguished from 30 to 31 days, but if February is 28/29 days, it cannot be distinguished, which explains why the wearer must reset the watch on March 1.
The appearance of the annual calendar 5146J is a brown crocodile leather strap with a gold Patek Philippe folding clasp of the iconic brand Calatrava Cross.
Patek Philippe designed her annual calendar 4936R
Patek Philippe (Patek Philippe) will never forget the ladies, and also make annual calendar watches for ladies, such as this stunning ref. 4936. The 4936 calendar for ladies’ watches was also released in 2005, first in white gold and yellow gold, followed by rose gold.
This Patek Philippe 4936R annual calendar luxury watches men is a rose gold version with a 37 mm case, double bezel diamonds on the bezel, and diamonds on the winding crown. Except for the smaller size, the shape of the women’s almanac and the men’s almanac watches are very similar, with the same inclined lugs and sapphire crystals on both sides of the timepiece.
However, the dial layout of the female annual calendar is slightly different. The left and right sides have the same date and month subscale. The date window is at 6. The moon phase indicator is the same as the men’s watch, but there is no power reserve indicator. This version of 4936R includes a mother-of-pearl dial and is equipped with rose gold Roman indexes and hands.
The back of the watch has a 324 S QA LU self-winding movement, using the same Calatrava Cross etched gold rotor and decoration technology, which can reserve 35 to 45 hours of power in the watch. However, because this particular model was manufactured before the company converted to its own Patek Philippe quality seal, the movement bears the famous Geneva mark.
Perfectly matched with the rose gold Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Ref. 4936 is a brown alligator leather strap with a rose gold Calatrava Cross buckle.
Patek Philippe’s Annual Calendar watch is the leader of the Swiss watch industry. This is a complex problem of the modern watch industry and can be called a model of contemporary watch industry.

We have been asked a question: “Why is Patek Philippe considered by many to be the best watch brand in the world?” There are several key reasons why this ancient Swiss watch brand is regarded as the industry’s benchmark. Here, we take a closer look at the brand.
Patek Philippe is easily one of the most respected watch brands in the world. This is largely because the company has never stopped innovating, has always controlled production and distribution, and maintained an independent watch brand status. For these reasons, the brand is one of the most sought after brands for its new watches and antiques.
History and Archives
Patek Philippe was founded in 1839, formerly known as Patek Philippe Czapek & Cie, and now has a long and substantial history. In 1851, when Antoine Norbert de Patek and Jean Adrien Philippe joined forces, the company was renamed Patek Philippe. In the 180 years since its inception, the brand has regularly launched watches that have won global awards for innovation in watchmaking and design. The long history has given the brand a wealth of inspiration, as well as a wealth of archives. In fact, the company established one of the world’s most extensive watch museums in the center of Geneva, where it fully demonstrated its history and creativity.
Watchmaking expertise and innovation
Patek Philippe (Patek Philippe) has always created the best watches. Guided by the desire for innovation in watch complexity and function, the brand has produced some of the world’s most complex watches. And continue to do so. In fact, Patek Philippe has very high standards in the surface treatment and assembly of parts and watches, so the Patek Philippe seal has been established. The brand standard set by the seal is even higher than the Geneva Seal that most brands desire. All Patek Philippe watches are hand-made (once the CNC machine cuts the materials and components with extremely high precision), hand-finished and hand-assembled. The brand employs the best watchmakers, many of whom are multi-generation watchmakers. It even hired its own artisans internally to participate in carving, enamel, carving and exquisite hand painting. In short, everything the brand creates, from simple watches to complex watches, from pocket watches to rare handmade watches, are of the highest quality.
Exploration of double signature watches
Provenance is an important part of collecting antique watches for sale. In addition to all the bumps, scratches, and patina that appear during this process, tracking the life of the watch is critical for many people. In particular, a function may be to instantly display the life of the watch. Double signature. The name of the retailer engraved on the dial immediately provides you with a starting point for understanding the watch. Not only that, but the history behind the brand has rapidly doubled due to the historical connection between the brand and the retailer.
Before building familiar brands, and before there are boutiques and important online businesses around the world, they rely heavily on the retailer network. This allows them to enter markets that were otherwise difficult to penetrate from Swiss manufacturers. Beyer and Gübelin played an important role in strengthening respect for Patek Philippe and Rolex in German-speaking countries. As for Serpico Y Laino, they allow both brands to take advantage of the surge in wealth that occurred in Venezuela in the 1930s and 1940s. Part of Patek Philippe’s reputation and respect in the United States is based on Tiffany & Co’s more than 100 years of efforts to promote the development of the brand. From exotic places like Caracas to Liverpool,
Since there are no physical stores like Rolex or Patek Philippe in these regions, retailers have accumulated real power to control which watches are sold in their cities or countries. This power has brought respect and recognition from customers. When people began to trust and recognize the names of their local stores on the watches in the window, this triggered a quiet revolution in branding and marketing, which would enable the giants of the luxury industry to share a precious dial.
This partnership is rarely seen in any other sector of the luxury industry. Initially starting with practical considerations to help manufacturers expand their global reach, it has now evolved into a detail that collectors are after. In fact, the name of the retailer on the dial greatly increases the value of some of the most valuable watches.
Although these items can now demand a premium at the auction, not long ago, people were not very optimistic about them. Virginie Liatard-Roessli, the head of the watch division of Phillips, and the sales chief of its Double Signed theme sales in 2019 said, “Only five or six years ago, their market was good, but people were not double-signed. Attracted by the watch.”
However, things have changed and this trend has now spread to modern works. Demand is so high that the 5711/1A purchased from Tiffany and stamped with Tiffany’s stamps in July 2018 was sold at the Phillips Auction House at five times its original value. Just four months later. As collectors continue to develop and improve their collection priorities, it seems that many people are aiming at the dual-signature dial. Romanticism, intrigue and rarity combine to form a powerful combination.
“The Tiffany signatures on Patek Philippe watches are almost always added in the United States, which is interesting, and few people realize this.”
In the past, and even in recent times, the subdivision of the dial stamping process has led to various interesting quirks and changes. For example, Ben Clymer recently publicly shared his Patek Philippe 5170P, which was stamped by Tiffany at 12 o’clock instead of 6 o’clock. For Clymer, this unique placement was a mistake in the stamping process and was part of the motivation to buy this work. These interesting little details continue to help attract many antique and modern collectors.
As early as the early days of Patek Philippe, Antoni Patek, the marketing and business unit of the new watch brand, regularly traveled to the United States to promote its watches. In 1847, after completing one of its trips to the United States, Patek met Tiffany at the last stop in New York. It is said that they immediately liked each other. When Patek Philippe returned to Switzerland, he found that Tiffany had already placed orders for 150 watches, which was quite impressive at the time. A few years later, in 1876, Tiffany formalized this arrangement and announced that the jeweler would participate in Patek Philippe’s affairs in the United States as if they were their own. Although this relationship has developed over the years, it is still as strong today as ever.
The combination of these two brands is respected for their durability, exclusivity, and a different but complementary understanding of luxury in Switzerland and the United States, which means that their double signature dial appeal is second to none. To date, Tiffany & Co. is the only retailer that can still print its name alongside Patek Philippe, which illustrates the strength of their partnership.
Although the modern sports watch market around Tiffany’s stamp has aroused heated discussions, the classic vintage timepiece has stood the test of time and attracted collectors. Like @vntgbug, it’s what Tiffany’s collectors of antique and modern printed Patek Philippe works (including 2499) said: “This marks the solidity between two powerful countries with more than 170 years of history The bond. Coupled with the rarity and the lesser number of works on the market, collectors can start buying.”
However, this New York jeweler also played an important role in expanding the influence of other watch brands. In particular, it has established a strong cooperative relationship with Rolex. Beginning in the mid-1950s, Tiffany will sell Rolex dials on their stamps from the 5th Avenue Store. Interestingly, they will change the position of their signature according to the type of watch, so as not to create a design balance with the added text. The Tiffany stamp of a wearable watch should be under Rolex, but above the hands. As for their movement model, it will be placed under the hand, but just above the other lines of text.
It is believed that all this was done on site by Tiffany until Rolex began to instruct the dial manufacturer to stamp all watches cheap issued to the jeweler before leaving the factory. This may be to ease Tiffany’s burden, or it may be another example of Rolex wishing to incorporate all of its processes internally. After all, manufacturers are known for their strict control of production. Nevertheless, Tiffany continued to stamp himself after receiving the Rolex dial, which is why the stamping time of these watches is different.
Patek Philippe (Patek Philippe) is closer to the manufacturer in addition. Retailers and watchmakers have many things in common. They are all family businesses that have been passed down through generations, each developing individually and focusing on tradition.
As Herold can tell us, this relationship stems from Patek Philippe’s expansionist spirit. Patek Philippe is not a watchmaker, but a businessman. He is very passionate about business prosperity. Therefore, he not only expanded to London, New York and other places, but also sold more and more pocket watches inside Switzerland. “
Although this relationship exists for a long time, this connection can be illustrated by a special reference story: Perpetual Calendar 3940. Patek Philippe’s Philippe Stern launched the reference in 1985, when the industry was in a turbulent period and was recovering from this situation. Quartz crisis. At a time when the manufacturer gradually got rid of the tradition instead of embracing it, he launched the bold 3940, with the help of his close friend Theodore Beyer.
To celebrate the 225th anniversary of Chronometrie Beyer, the first 25 models were numbered and the Beyer mark was placed on the dial. The first is a gift for Bayer himself. Beyer has played an important role in publishing Patek Philippe’s important reference documents. This fact should tell you all about the close connection between retailers and manufacturers.
You can also get limited editions from manufacturers to help retailers celebrate various occasions and anniversaries, just like Patek Philippe Fake did for Wempe. The watch brand is still like Breitling and Bremont, uniting with military units, adding a military logo to the dial, and providing it exclusively to the unit or squadron. As collectors seek exclusivity and uniqueness, this practice seems unlikely to disappear. As Wind said, “Given that modern watch buyers increasingly want something special, unlike what others have, it wouldn’t surprise me to see the return of more double-signed new watches. Customization is future.”
