Patek Philippe

Invest on a Patek Philippe?

Any investment by its nature involves a certain level of risk. In fact, the risk is the deciding factor. Whether you choose stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or other financial products, there is always the possibility that you will be hit by deteriorating market conditions. Investing intangible things — like houses, cars, paintings, or watches — makes no difference. However, investing in luxury watches from top brands such as fake Rolex and replica Patek Philippe is one of the divisive topics in the collectors’ world. 
Many people believe that buying a watch is just for sheer enjoyment, pleasure, and satisfaction because owning and wearing a perfect work of art is right on your wrist. Here at Bob’s Watches we certainly agree those reasons should be the most important considerations when buying a luxury timepiece, but there is no escaping the fact that there are certain models and certain brands that can accrue value extremely well. And in the current era, there are only two manufacturers that can claim to perform consistently year after year: Rolex and Patek Philippe.
It’s no wonder to see Rolex up there. The name of the most successful and well-known watch brand to date is familiar even to those who have no interest in horology. Not so with Patek Philippe. Founded in 1839, the family-run company may not have the same universal recognition among the general public, but within the industry, there is arguably no marque more revered.
The two brands are different entities. While Rolex is a mass producer of luxury replica watches, making an estimated one million timepieces each year, it is thought that Patek has only made around a million pieces since they started, 180 years ago. Patek Philippe is also responsible for a litany of innovations, including the split-seconds chronograph, the minute repeater, and the perpetual calendar.
With all that in mind, it is no surprise that the cost for the average Patek Philippe exists on another plane entirely to Rolex. Expect a starting price of around $20,000 for what could be described as an “entry-level” piece, such as the beautifully elegant Calatrava. At the top end, even a production model from their Grand Complications Collection can run up into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
In the style, Patek Philippe to the most rigorous attention to detail as a model — from the incomparable dial design, to pour into the internal movement of the extraordinary craftsmanship, each movement is second to none.

2017 Female Replica Patek Philippe Art of Watches Grand Exhibition

Among the spectacular parade of special editions was a ladies minute repeater, with a beautiful blue enamel dial. It contains the new Caliber R 27 PS. The case is set with 160 diamonds using the fake Patek’s proprietary Flamme setting. 
The Flamme setting focuses on the metal surrounding the diamond instead of focusing on the cut of the diamond itself to achieve a high light return. After setting the stones, the gem setter uses a burin to split the gold between each diamond, exposing part of the lower half and allowing light to pass through. Not only does the technique release more brilliance, but it also creates a lace-like engraved pattern in the gold around the setting that adds even more sparkle.
The second ladies’ special edition is a companion piece to the men’s new 300-piece Patek Philippe World Time New York Special Edition but in even smaller quantities. The ladies’ cheap replica watch is limited to two 75-piece editions (rose or white gold) with diamond-set bezels and dials that, like the men’s, are relief-embossed with a depiction of the New York skyline.
“The movement is the secret to creating great ladies’ watches,” Patek president Thierry Stern told me at the exhibition opening. “You have to be able to produce very fine, ultra-thin movements. That is something the fake Patek Philippe replica has.
These special editions are part of a growing lineup of impressive ladies’ timepieces lately introduced by Patek, including not just complications but high jewelry replica watches that rival the artistry of Rolex. “But it’s not easy to find the right pieces, because for men, it’s a lot about the technical aspect, and for women, it’s more about design. I believe Sandrine, as a woman, is a good judge. I can design a ladies’ watch, but as a man, I will never wear it. When she designs a ladies’ watch, she designs something she could wear. And she has good taste.”
Then you have the technical woman. She understands the technical side, she is successful and does not need anybody to give her a watch. She already has a quartz watch maybe, but she wants something different. She is the one looking for a complication. She is willing to have a chronograph or something like that, but with a ladies’ fit.
The third one is the next generation customer. They are also willing to have an automatic movement, but something more simple and functional for every day, without diamonds and with an automatic movement. The most suitable ones are on the Nautilus side. I also have to be very careful because I should not change my own strategy to design something only for them. We have to propose something nice for them without losing all the rest.

2017 Limited Edition of the Best Replica Patek Philippe World Time

Some of the most greatly valued and horologically wonderful watches from the Patek Philippe replica are its world time watches, which it started producing as the unique model in 1939. Historically these were made in small numbers (in the case of enamel dial 1415s, extremely small numbers; only eight have appeared on the market at auction since production ceased in 1954) and with or without enamel dials, world time watches like that replica model in white gold, remain a cornerstone of Patek’s collections. The fake Patek has just announced that in conjunction with the Art Of Watches Grand Exhibition, which opens tomorrow in New York, that it will release several special editions including the newly established New York Special Edition 2017. Patek Philippe
One of the most highly sought Patek world time watches is the other model, with enamel dial models commanding a premium at auction. The world time complication was invented in the 1930s by the watchmaker Louis Cottier (1894-1996) who was a graduate of the Horological School of Geneva, and who went to work in the family business under his father Emmanuel after graduation, and who was considered an exceptional watchmaker in his own right. Cottier developed a few patents but today, he’s best remembered for the invention of the world-time complication, which shows the time in (classically) 24 time zones simultaneously, and which allows the local time city to be selected by a pusher in the case (operating the pusher simultaneously selects the city, as well as correcting the hour hand and the position of the 24 hour dial).
He made the complication to order for some clients but one of the best popular is the Patek Philippe replica watch, and in conjunction with the Art of Watches Grand Exhibition, Patek will release the Men’s World Time model.
The distinguishing feature of this fake watch is the dial. The metal relief image shows the Manhattan skyline. There will be a total of 300 produced and as with all the Patek models released in conjunction with the Art Of Watches Grand Exhibition opening in New York, it will be retailed in the U.S. only.
