A $17.3 Million UK Luxury Replica Patek Philippe Minute Repeater Leads Only Watch Auction

The atmosphere in the auction room on Friday afternoon at Geneva’s Palexpo Congress and Exhibition Centre was palpably different than in previous editions. There was the usual excitement among collectors as they eagerly waited to bid on a host of exceptional replica watches online uk, but there was also a collective sense of worry about how things were going to go as this 10th edition of Only Watch almost didn’t happen.

There were no breaks between lots, except for a dramatic pause when Kadakia arrived at the letter P and perfect replica Patek Philippe’s ref. 6310A. This one-of-a-kind complication, featuring a grande and petite sonnerie with minute repeater, was expected to cause some excitement. Unlike in previous years, bidding was slow and thoughtful as the price increased slowly but surely, putting everyone on the edge of their seats. It finally sold for CHF 15.7 million (which totals to around $17.3 million with auction fees)—a far cry from the watchmaker’s 2019 record of CHF 31 million, but certainly nothing to sniff at. For perspective, one can likely pick up the much more complicated Grand Master Chime from Sylvester Stallone for and estimated $2.5 million to $5 million from Sotheby’s in the upcoming Important Watches Auction.

AAA quality fake Patek Philippe’s President Thierry Stern, a loyal supporter of Only Watch, had done everything he could to support the sale: “We invited our clients to come to the auction to give them a chance to bid on this unique piece. It is fantastic for Only Watch and for our clients. They all enjoyed the high end copy watches and the opportunity to help, so I think when it is a good cause like this, I can only be happy.”

The most heartwarming sale was the Chronomètre Antimagnétique from Rexhep Rexhepi. A discreet and humble young watchmaker, he looked visibly shocked as his piece was fought over by buyers from Switzerland, London, Dubai, and Bahrain. Every time Kadakia tried to call it, someone would change their mind, and another flurry of bidding would ensue. The final price of Swiss movement replica Patek Philippe was CHF 2.1 million (roughly $2.3 million USD). “I was a little surprised, quite frankly, but I am really happy,” shared Rexhepi after the auction. “It is always big numbers and I don’t really understand, but the more I see this, the more I feel comfortable about what I am doing at my small bench, so I am very happy”.
