Patek Philippe 5100 Manta rose gold sees light after 16 years

5100 reference, the GREATEST , most value for money watch made after the age of the internet. Patek’s only serious rival to Greubel Forsey. All the molds and casts were destroyed and audited. Not one useless complication. Simplicity at its best, totally Philippe DuFour and more. Beauty with zero superfluous jazz. 750 made in RG, and 1500 in yellow…both are made to own and to mean real investments. Twin barrels. 21,600 vpm….the finest uncomplicated watch ever made, and for the first time, I agree that the words Patek mean investment, for THIS watch. Lesson: Use the watches we buy, and keep track.

Greubel Forsey Invention Piece 1

Greubel Forsey Invention Piece 1 Created between 2002 to 2005, this is the platinum piece ,of 11 maximum made. The Greubel Forsey Invention Piece 1, also known as the IP 1, was first shown, or revealed in 2006 Basel to three journalists, and possibly the first collector and customs to own it later after 2010. It was the herald of the GOLDEN (or rather Platinum) AGE of the 7 figure watches that actually do deserve those halo prices. In fact, when the IP 1 was revealed, it was called the Harry Winston Opus 6. I, was then informally linked to the industry as an “early adopter” and informal advisor/trouble shooter. I saw the fully completed CAD generated engineering diagrams with Hamdi Chiatti at the Raffles Hotel, with TheHourGlass as early as 2005. Max...

Buying your ONE landmark watch that projects “YOU” and “Your Philosophy”.

Your wristwatch projects you and your philosophy of living. It does NOT HAVE TO BE proportionate to the relevance, size or budget you control, or leverage.

Wearing your philosophy is OPEN for those who see it. The BEST ? In every way? This era? The LANDMARK watch you own, you bought, that you project, engage in conversation, hand down…projects your philosophy or POV of life. It will take a whole book of CHAPTERS to describe it. Bear and tolerate my attempt to aid you: Please, double check my reputation when it comes to speaking up, and to sincerity. Facebook or google may help: Here goes:...

TAG Heuer V4 Phantom 2016 October production

TAG Heuer V4 made in 2016 October production TAG Heuer V4 watches are ALL about legends…and icons. These are era defining watches. 5 years before main lining into 2002. The V4 in all black carbon is about the most important piece. It is also my second one, the first was in gold. Extremely difficult to come by, and impossible to fake. (all the fakes have flat dials with quartz or simple 2 handed movements. I stress that this is a watch made in 2016, October and I bought it outright a few weeks back….with great difficulty. This is because MOST V4 carbons that you see online in many, most reviews are looking different, these being due to the nature of making plates from this carbon matrix material. I use the Lange 1 and the Greubels to give an idea of...
