A once in a lifetime experience

Jun 21, 2019,09:54 AM
 

Never thought that I would see ,handle and wear these very very unique pieces
The owner graciously allowed me to play with these toys and I can say I’m a very very lucky person to meet him and to know him as he is definitely one of the top collectors in the world (probably top 5)
First is the Only Watch piece from 2017 if I’m not mistaken
The first and original ratrapantte












The next gem needs no introduction as cool as the OW
















There were other very very special pieces but not allowed to take pictures of (hint the most expensive Rolex ever)
I’m still in shock and out of words really

That blue dial with these characters are just out of this world You gotta handle it to appreciate it

This really has to be one of the greatest experiences in the life of a watch enthusiast...

... it's very sad but also understandably that these high-level-targets hide all day.

Well not for long as this very fine and seasoned collector is doing a museum for watches

 
 By: Mohannad (aka Riddler) : June 22nd, 2019-03:01
Btw this gentleman is the highest bidder in a lot of important pieces in history and he specializes in very fine jewelry So these beautiful time pieces will see the light of day to all to appreciate hopefully in the very near future

That's interesting!

 
 By: Pour le Mérite : June 22nd, 2019-04:12
Good to hear. I'll look forward.

Having figured out who he is I found an excellent article about him in the NYTimes from 2017.

 
 By: DruidPadj : June 23rd, 2019-09:49
Even then he was looking to create a space to exhibit his collection.

👍👍👌🏻 [nt]

I have come across some rare birds over the years - some amazing 1 of 1 client pieces that will never see the internet. Many amazing things out there.
