Thread: Solid gold

    Solid gold

    One of my clients watches. Not my thing but it weighed a tone! Suited my Client though! 80 yr old hipster!







    It’s quite common knowledge about my watch interest and he always wears something unusual when he comes in and eggs me on to try on my wrist!

    I like that one, fancy a PP myself but SWMBO Baulks at the cost, I’d need to clear the watch box and settle for one only, I tried one end of last year at £30k but couldn’t justify the cost.

    Looks very dated to me and not in a good way. Reminds me of those Tag watches of the late 80s early 90s

    Looks dreadful to me.

    Please Note: It is possible that Griswold may know nothing whatsoever about horology. It's even possible that he has never even owned a watch. It is also highly possible the he has a strange imagination. His wife insists he would be far better off paying more attention to taking his medication on time.

    Patek Philippe Sculpture Automatic Date Gold 38mm

    The Patek Philippe Sculpture are frequently referred to as the “Russian watch”, because the Ref. 5091 was launched in 1999 to celebrate the return of Patek Philippe to Russia. There were 300 examples for each of nine versions, for a total production of 2700 pieces. Russia’s nobility and intellectuals were important Patek Philippe customers in the 19th century, but Patek Philippe left during the Soviet era. The design of the case is based on the classic Patek Philippe Nautilus. This very heavy watch weighs over 194 grams and is fully made of 18K yellow gold. The crown is covered with blue enamel.

    Not my taste neither. Value seems to indicate that it was not a good investment (considering it is a PP)

    The bracelet reminds me of the Aliens spine.

    The one thing you have to give PP credit for is that you produce good watches with good taste.

    That looks like something off a local outdoor market.

    £13000 in 2000, bet that’s not cheap in today’s money?

    Nasty looking design from Patek there. Even the greats produce some duffers.

    Interesting though OP; I doubt we'll see another
