On the day of its creation, the Audemars Piguet brand has always adhered to its original intention of creation, and still maintains the tradition of family watchmaking, writing a legend of independent spirit from generation to generation. In the course of 139 years, Audemars Piguet has always adhered to the brand essence of breakthrough innovation, created countless masterpieces, and set a lot of ‘first in history’ records.

Sotheby’s Hong Kong April Precious Watches Special Review

Sotheby’s 2012 Precious Watches Spring Auction in Hong Kong ended on the 4th, with total transactions approaching HK $ 100 million, creating the second-highest total turnover for Sotheby’s global precious watch auctions. The watch of independent watchmaker Philippe Dufour was sold for HK $ 4.82 million (including commission). In addition, the Patek Philippe 5270G platinum perpetual calendar chronograph watch at the first auction was sold for HK $ 1.88 million. Sina Shangpin quoted Mr. Wang Ji, the producer of ‘Time Art’ and ‘First Class’ magazine’s comment on this auction, as a reference for watch fans.
Philippe Dufour watch
Brother Xuan ‘promoted’ on Weibo for a long time, and also privately told me that he was going to win it around 300; I said that it was only necessary to listen to the sound, and it was not worth it. He was right, it was not worth more than Patek Philippe. As a result, he took Patek Philippe’s three questions (I guess it was Ref.5016R, right?) And went to the PK and found that the sound was quite good (beyond my expectations, I thought an independent producer would not do three questions), and he even considered repairs. Question, I heard that the Chen Chenning brothers went to inquire about the news. The old man said that there was nothing wrong with the maintenance. As a result, although it was not expensive, it was already very expensive. Regarding who took the picture, it also caused fierce controversy at an expensive sushi dinner. Both S and I opposed Hao’s point of view, ‘It was taken by a brother in China or the guy we know.’ As a result, a brother phone auction OK, it confirms that we are right, the buyers are Europeans, enthusiastic Europeans. Taking this watch and taking it at this price cannot be a speculative behavior of a Chinese investment enthusiast. However, I do not agree with a brother’s point of view. I don’t think this watch is more expensive than Patek Philippe-but this talk is also meaningless. It belongs to standing without back pain.
Patek Philippe Model 5079
I wonder why this Ref.5079J is so expensive? On aesthetics, I think it is definitely more beautiful than Ref.5078P. Although the appearance of Ref.5079J is also the tradition of PATEK PHILIPPE, but the big watch and small core, the sound is not good, and the wide bezel makes people feel fatty; In the past two years, Ref.5079 is worth more than two million yuan (2.45 million yuan). What is most inexplicable is that Ref.5079J, how could it be more expensive than the next Ref.3939? !! Chicken blood, where can I sell it? Give me some too.
Patek Philippe 3939 watch
Ref. 3939H, starting at 3 million RMB, unshakable positioning of rivers and lakes. Although it was defeated to the massive Ref.5079J in the same field, it was a glorious defeat, after all, this is its normal ‘physiological performance’.
