Thread: Solid platinum AP perpetual calendar for sale in Belfast. Care to guess a price?

    Solid platinum AP perpetual calendar for sale in Belfast. Care to guess a price?

    I've posted up before about a new watch dealer recently opened in Belfast, Pride & Pinion. Their instagram feed is a busy one... and rather funny at times.

    Anyway, they've got THIS in stock. I'll paste in the description, but what are we looking at here price wise? Couldn't afford the buckle on it... but I'm curious!

    Every day we work hard to find that 1 piece, that 1 watch that no one has really seen before. Today was our lucky day! Together with our good friends from @amsterdamvintagewatches we’ve been able to find that 1 watch that no one has really seen before.
    Not only are we now able to do research on this watch but we’re also going to be the first one to sell this masterpiece to the public.

    The reference belonging to this Audemars Piguet is 25930PT.ZZ.0944PT.01. Please, feel free to look up this reference. we are pretty sure – that you’ll not find this watch anywhere else because it is one of a kind.

    Besides the rarity of this timepiece, there are some other aspects that make this watch unique. The reference 25930PT.ZZ.0944PT.01, unlike the 25930SP which was made from steel and platinum that’s why the reference ends with SP, the watch we found is completely from platinum (0944PT stands for platinum). What is more, the bezel and index both have factory-set diamonds (ZZ stands for factory diamonds). The dial is from sapphire crystal which exposes the beautifully finished automatic movement. Obviously, it has a perpetual calendar complication, or quantiŤme perpťtuel as Audemars Piguet calls it, which means it displays the day, date, month and automatically adjusts for leap year. If that is not good enough, the watch also has a moon phase indicator.

    Now, to make it more exciting, we would like to ask you to find us more information about this watch, or even, find another one, which we believe is impossible, can you proof us wrong?

    This unique watch is available to view in the Vault in Belfast, if you’re interested to purchase you’ll have to bring a big ass wallet with you because this watch doesn’t come cheap!
    And now, the pics.....

    Surprisingly I actually don't hate it... But I think it probably cost more than my house. Must be £3-400k?

    They can just get an extract from the archives from AP ffs.... all these wannabe watch dealers popping up every which way. Cant wait for the bubble to burst.
    Horrible looking thing, too...

    Iíll play...

    So I believe the SS skeletons are going for £70k. Assuming the engraving and diamonds are factory, the relatively high raw material value of the platinum and a huge premium for, Iím guessing, rarity considering the complications, this must be north of two hundred bags. Perhaps quarter of a big one?

    Not for me. if someone posted this on Facebook market place I'd report it as a fake in a heartbeat. The craftsmanship may be evident and impressive but to me it's monstrously ugly.

    An automatic perpetual calendar that takes into account leap years?

    So how much is it. Equivalent to 10 houses in the north or a studio apartment in knightsbridge.

    Iím going to guess 800k - given itís a one off they can price it whatever they want

    Had a look at their IG account, he has modelled his shop and IG account off Amsterdam Vintage Watches. Not as well though. Quite odd.

    He's from there himself. Just copying a friend's business model that works I guess. One things for sure, it's a great place to browse in person.

    Prices are above my comfort zone though. I could fly to Haywood and still come back home with a grand spare.

    I thought the point of perpetual calendars was that they all take into account leap years, hence the 'perpetual' name?

    Yes, otherwise it's an annual calendar.

    This made me laugh!

    I know exactly what you mean... I don't question its authenticity, however in different circumstances, without knowing it's back story, it's so garish that one could be forgiven for thinking it was an Asian special set with cubic zirconia.

    I'm actually not that offended by it, it is more tasteful than some other brands efforts. If it had higher contrasting hands it'd be better. My guess is £800k

    I doubt I could afford the shirt, never mind the watch!

    A truly hideous example of a wrist watch within any context!

    i admire the skeleton movement but isn't that the standard AP s/s bracelet? I can buy a 2003 Platinum day-date Rolex with diamonds from Blowers for £27k and I get a platinum bracelet. Ok I dont get that trick AP movt but with the money saved I can then get a standard AP skeleton and still have money left. That's me with my logic/thrifty head.

    I love a good skeleton watch but the hands on this are all wrong they blend far too much into the watch. The date subdial is badly balanced with the 31 and 1 being far too close together looks more like 311

    Lot of hate for this but, diamonds aside, I like it.

    What I donít like is AP in general, and Moby Dick APs sold through IG dealers to people with more money than sense who should know better.

    More importantly though, did we get to a landing on their asking price?
