Limited Edition Patek Philippe 

This rare Patek Philippe wristwatch has only been produced in very limited numbers. It’s a breathtaking example of the finest craftsmanship. The attention paid to the hand painted enamel dial inspired by the famous Azulejos tiles made in Portugal is spectacular. Further to this, the quality of the hinged case and every detail of the movement make it one of the most beautiful and collectable modern time only Patek Philippe pieces.

 

Rare Tudor Timepiece

This unique Tudor wristwatch is one of the very few that is known to exist with its case back with the crest of the Sultanate of Oman. An interesting fact is that this particular watch has been illustrated in the important Tudor Anthology book by Alberto Isnardi. While Tudor pieces are still undervalued in today’s market they are becoming more and more collectable.
