Philippe Dufour Simplicity Piece Unique.

 By: amanico : June 10th, 2023-09:29
Piece unique as it is a 38 mm case, with a blue dial, and without small seconds. There are no other Simplicity like this one. Credit: Christies. Best, Nicolas ...  

Simplicity at its best!

Really... Simple. ;)

Holy ****ing **** **** 😍

 By: Esharp : June 10th, 2023-11:25
This is enough to make a holy man swear. And I’m not holy. Good grief. What a thing. I’ll have this one and a regular small-size one with the guilloche dial, please. (Can I get fries with them and make it a meal?) Thanks Nico!

Kidneys are welcome.

That would be weird...

Very bad. I think a lot indies are sick of this speculative approach.

 By: ChristianDK : June 16th, 2023-06:10
Watches as an investment vehicle. It’s all about the wrong reasons.

Love it. Oh yes!

Nicely put.

I think i still prefer the standard patterned dial with the sub seconds though.

The 34 mm one?

 By: amanico : June 10th, 2023-14:21

If reaching for the stars, go for 37mm

Not Dufour, but a similar aesthetic.

 By: Nicetomeetyou : June 11th, 2023-13:43
I think if they made it in 36mm (or even slightly smaller 35.8), just to allow the sub seconds to sit lower would have been absolutely perfect. As is…. Is still amazing Credit monochrome ...  

That’s why…

I’ll take this AND a ‘regular’ one

Simply Greedy!

Money talks …

 By: Clueless_Collector : June 10th, 2023-15:10
I remember reading a report many years ago, after the initial batch of 140? Simplicity were made, sold and done…some wealthy Chinese collectors was able to “convince” the Master to make another 20 unique pieces. In recent years, a big collector and friend... 

I’m going to go on record and say

 By: Cozmopak : June 11th, 2023-04:48
That I simply don’t understand the million dollar appeal of these watches. There are much more interesting watches in the sub-100k category in my very humble opinion. But what do I know!

I agree with you and Nico. That’s why when Rexhep’s CC went for $924K, I was a bit frustrated.

 By: Obeezy : June 11th, 2023-14:20
Why? Because now even more speculators will try to obtain his pieces. Now, Rexhep’s pieces are interesting, unique, etc. so don’t hear me saying they are not. I simply want to return to the days when true enthusiasts could obtain and discuss watches.

I may be wrong, but I think the speculator angle gets overplayed....

...and all this shows is that 1M is insignificant for the 0.1%ers of the world who can buy what they want. We all love capitalism until we are on the wrong side of it!

Hehehe, good one!

They are interesting, but really nothing extraordinary to my eyes

 By: Cozmopak : June 11th, 2023-21:11
Still a simple Swiss lever escapement, with a cool reset to zero function. Also, I have heard from a few owners and others whom I trust of significant mechanical issues with his watches. As high as a 60 percent failure rate, with service times extending b... 

When was this watch made...

 By: Ronald Held : June 11th, 2023-19:09
And why is it being auctioned off?


 By: Andy_Mac : June 11th, 2023-21:42

And the back side?

 By: amanico : June 11th, 2023-22:04

is pretty nice too

 By: Andy_Mac : June 11th, 2023-22:15
..two watchmakers who previously worked at Lang & Heyne

I didn't know that!

 By: amanico : June 12th, 2023-04:20

Firstly let me say - I love this piece and design. HOWEVER

 By: watch-guy.com : June 11th, 2023-22:01
I find the current state of the market really depressing. 1. These pieces are not and never will be available;able to collectors like us. They are only available to high end ultra high net worth clients. Lets not fool ourselves. We will never even smell o... 

Nico I want to say I like it

 By: Mr.Gatsby : June 14th, 2023-17:37
But this one leaves me feeling quite cold. As you’ve rightly said it. It’s VERY simple I like having a seconds hand running around in circles. Also the lack of guilloche and applied numerals just makes it really, really, simple. Best Gatsby

yup me 2
