Wow, 5975 owners must have had a Mother's Day shock...

I think PP should learn what AP already painfully learned years ago, which is that limited editions, rather than enhancing a brand name, can end up destroying it. When I saw that there is going to be a Titanium Pilot's watch for yet another "one-off" even...  

There's a better alternative...

donate to charity directly! Giving back doesn't have to always involve diluting your own brand name. It's like printing money; it solves an immediate problem, but creates a bigger one: everyone holding your money suddenly realizes that what they have is n... 

If this were an objective statement I would agree with you.

But it is not. And I would argue the risk to brand perception encourages each manufacturer to provide something the market truly values: unique, differentiated, demanded. To date, that certainly has been the case. The results certainly will tell us if thi... 

well....

This was probably the bargain of the auction. Seeing how speculative the prices were on the limited edition Pateks in all the factory plastic bags and sealed delivery boxes. The price is reflective of this watch "no longer" in the "sealed" patek delivery ... 

Han Soloed!!!

Excellent!!! Best. René

I was bidding on the watch and i am not sure if another bid

Of mine would have pushed the price a bit more. A R had sold for CHF68k including buyers ptemium a year earlier. I think its now becoming a bargain versus the 5170G. The real surprise for me was how strong the 5575 was. Not exactly scare but going for mor... 

And then earlier today Christies sold another R for CHF65k (I think including premium).

Not sure about condition, but for sure points to yesterday's result being perhaps an auction anomaly.

CHF 53000 incl VAT and price I think was CHF

55000 at list...some other string results from 5131R and 5575G and 5131P limping...5711 A white dial was same price as this!!! ...  

Finally on the wrist with a casual strap

Fantastic acquisition and choice...

 
 By: JBP99P : June 18th, 2019-06:29
I saw in another of your posts you mentioned it as an incoming and though what a move...looks great!

Good for the new owner, always two sides of the coin...

some win, some lose but better still in this case, maybe it’s a win-win. Rgds Raymond

Well said [nt]

Indeed raymond.

 
 By: watch-guy.com : May 13th, 2018-23:08
There were 3 pieces sold at AQ which achieved similar but slightly higher prices Approx 55k- not sure if that includes commission J

Very true Raymond_S [nt]

Its too busy the dial. I believe Patek made a mistake in the design of the watch.

 
 By: geross : May 14th, 2018-03:45
That is my humble opinion. No offense to anyone who has that reference. Cheers! Geross.

There are always lots at auction that show surprising results (both low and high).

 
 By: Jay (Eire) : May 14th, 2018-04:15
I wouldn't take this single result as an indicator for real price, need more data points. That said 400 pieces is not exactly limited (1300 pieces in all metals) and this price achieved at the weekend isn't that far from the original retail.

Agree in general that the limited edition game should be left to other brands

 
 By: Joepny : May 14th, 2018-06:01
I don't consider the charity watches made by PP to be in the spirit of a limited edition series; sure categorically perhaps, but the spirit is different. They are a single watch made each time and as far as I'm aware all the proceeds go to charity. Of cou... 

not good....

 
 By: thomaspp : May 14th, 2018-12:08
In general for many modern patek unfortunately. Have a look at the Minute Repeaters and there is some scare stuff.....

IMO...

 
 By: JBP99P : May 15th, 2018-12:34
I really don't think current owners need worry, it is a fantastic piece and over time believe it will be appreciated for what it is, a rather special chronograph with killer case, unique movement and beautifully intricate dial. It's another of those watch... 

i followed the auction...

... this piece came at the end of the session, it was given 15sec, and was given away very quickly. Surely deserved more, at least someone made a good deal. The price on the pics is hammer price, final price after fees is 52'000$

I was also following this live online and something strange happened on this lot and only this lot!

 
 By: KC_HK : May 16th, 2018-02:08
The bid amount was jumping all over the place. First was at 42,000, then 44,000, then jumped to 52,000+, then back down to 44,000, then hammered at 42,000. I was going to bid on this but since the bid amount was all over the place, I didn't bid at all. Af... 

Yes something was clearly wrong...

 
 By: Fricks : May 16th, 2018-08:44
They didnt give it 3sec to overbid the 42k bid. Felt like they wanted to give it to that last bidder.

I have the J version and I love it and wear it.

 
 By: AnthonyV : May 18th, 2019-12:50
Killed myself trying to find a P but couldnt snag one. Those have done amazing numbers at auction (that's not why I wanted it, I just loved the black dial). I'm a little surprised that they havent at least held close to value and maybe time will tell. I l... 

And...

I do think that 4000 in each metal was a little heavy, may be part of the issue. But of course, as Karlstumke says above, 1300 5575G and they are way over original list.

400? [nt]
