He is not saying the sum total market value of all the Pateks is the same as the Lange
He is comparing 1 to 1
By your logic, if I have 10 billion bananas worth 10 cents each, I can throw that into your Hummer vs Honda discussion? Nope.
Imagine that Honda sold secondary market for the same price as the Hummer. THAT is the discussion. 1 to 1. Wouldn't that be crazy if that Honda did?

In my opinion
you get a lot more watch with the Lange for the money. The Nautlius is a cult watch and is arguably over priced both when new and used. And I love Pateks in general by the way, just not the Nautilus
Lange is the choice
Between these two for sure Lange 1815 Tourbillon and the handwerkskunst dial is so beautiful
The market determines the price
Market, company history, supply, sensibilities all play role in price and demand. I can see why people would like one of these more than the other; diamonds are indices are not my thing, but also Lange cannot be really a 'daily wear'.
Lange all day!
I like PP but since my experience with AP the wholly trinity thing isn’t what it’s cracked out to be! A Lange makes very nice pieces

Here was the original statement
One technical marvel and piece of art limited to 30 vss One marketing created hyped icon limited to 700 Total market value almost equal. That sounds to me like these 30 are equal to 700 Mike
Oh, I now understand
I see how it was read by you - makes total sense now. But no, I think the reality is that the secondary market value of these 2 pieces is identical, 1 to 1. If it was the way you reaqd it, that would make more logical sense! But the watch world clearly do...
the market thinks so! So you are able to get stunning watches like your HL at a good and fair price. 😊 Best, Thomas
are controlled by the intentional underproduction by the company. To what final end, who knows.
i think the PP is limited to 300?
I would choose the Lange for the tourbillion as I don't have this complication yet BUT if cash is available i would take that instead
Perfect two watch collection
What else is there to say. To compare and choose between the two is fruitless... totally different and pricing is the way it is for a good reason. No relative value, just different values...
I stand corrected but the ALS is close to double
The price of the 5711P at MRSP. ALS preowned is dreadful at all levels and makes 7000 watches a year. That implies not many more people want to own them....i will ne in the minority and go PP here...
