When Ben first discovered that Heritage Auctions was selling new platinum, tiffany’s signature Patek Philippe ref. 2526 replica watches was in an incredible state, complete with matching platinum bracelets, which he called “one of the truly fresh market discoveries of the past few years.” Turns out the guy knew what he was talking about. The hammer just went down, and the watch cost as much as $642,500, making it the most expensive reference. In 2526.
One of the most interesting things about the Swiss Patek philippe replica watches is that it was sold via Heritage Auctions, an online/live auction combination that has been listed and available for more than a month. The result is not that some Geneva auction house hyped trains will not stop. In fact, when the spot bid price was $300,000, it had skyrocketed before the next bid reached $350,000. Then things started to increase, trading back and forth between someone on the network and someone on the phone. This appears to be two bidders. After just a few minutes, it hit $525,000 and reached the final price of $642,500 after calculating the premium.
The watch itself is really crazy and deserves a crazy price match. The metal, bracelet and opalescent enamel dial combined with the extra small stamp on the top is mesmerizing. Few Luxury Patek Philippe Watchesproduce this HODINKEE office buzz. I was disappointed that one of my colleagues was not a winning bidder; I’ve died for a wrist.
If you want to know, the cheap fake Patek Philippe watches next most expensive 2526 open sale is this one, which is another example of what might be unique, the platinum case and watch chain, the black lacquer dial and the diamond timestamp. It sold for 339,750 Swiss francs at a Christie’s auction in May 2013. A closely followed watch was sold at sotheby’s for $325,000 in December 2017 with a platinum case and band, a silver dial with Serpico y Laino signature, a mix of baton and diamond timepiece. The only question now is: what will the next giant 2526 look like?
