Model: 3940 Grand Complication
Thought to be one of only 5 pieces made in 2015 for the Grand exhibition at the Saatchi gallery, this 3940R-027 remained double sealed until we carefully cut it open to reveal a pristine, grande complication and a rush of fresh Geneva sealed air. One of the very first from Patek’s secretive “vintage” collection offered to their VVIP clients, the classic proportions of this ultra-slim perpetual calendar are enhanced by the modern 5140 style printing (with larger signature) on a cool bronze colour dial.
Zenith X Bamford X Mr. Porter
Model: "Edge of Space" Limited Edition
One of only 50 pieces produced in ultra-light bead blasted Titanium by the worlds most famous customisation house, this "Edge of Space" is in practically unworn condition. Complete with it's original Zenith box and papers, and sporting a deep blue dial with contrasting black sub-dials and minimalist display. Powered by the worlds most famous chronograph movement, fitted to a deep blue fabric strap with matching Titanium pin-buckle.
The 16600 Sea-Dweller has always been a collectors choice, rarer and considerably upgraded compared to the classic 16610 Sub Date, these rugged ‘5 digit’ models have been growing in demand since they were discontinued in 2008. Found in outstanding, seemingly unpolished condition, this 2007 Z-series example is complete with the original Rolex box, green guarantee card with Japanese country code, booklets, tool, compression tool and full Japanese translation leaflets.
Model: Grand Complication Perpetual Calendar
Found in outstanding condition, this beautiful Art Deco Grand Complication with Breguet Numerals, measures just 8.6mm in height, an incredibly complex achievement for a watch with one of the most adaptable and reliable Perpetual Calendar movements produced, caliber 240 Q. The 5940G is arguably one of the most elegant dress watches ever made, accompanied by full accessories including International Guarantee and box.
