PANERAI RADIOMIR CHRONO RATTRAPANTE 45MM STAINLESS STEEL PAM00214 70KFWQShop this watch
Panerai Radiomir Rattrapante PAM00214 in stainless steel. Looks like a vintage watch from the 40’s with its cushion shaped case with its rounded knife edge detail. The Radiomir is not your traditional looking Panerai which makes it even more special. The wired lugs are a nice attribute to its vintage look and helps with the fitting of the 45mm case around my 6 ½ inch wrist. Now to the guts of this beauty. The complication Rattrapante and Chronograph go hand in hand since the Rattrapante is an additional complication that was created in the early 1900’s. The large second hand that is positioned at the 12 o’clock supersedes a second beneath it, the purpose of having the two is that you have the ability to keep track of two separate events once activated. The activation of the chronograph begins at the start of say two runners that begin the race around the first lap. By pressing the top right hand pushbutton activates the chronograph, so then when the first runner completes a lap you would then press the top left hand pushbutton which would then stop the bottom second hand allowing you to record the completion time of the first runner and will be able to stop the additional second hand by pressing the top right one when the second runner completes the first lap.
Very complicated to make a mechanical and I am sure you will find some use of it in our fast paced world but by enlarge it’s a great looking watch which can be worn daily. The price of $6,250. Is an amazing value considering this watch originally sold for $13,000 in its production years between 2005-08. This watch just went through its master service at Panerai and comes with a manufacturer warranty till august 2020. Buy it right @previouslyenjoyed
AUDEMARS PIGUET ROYAL OAK DUAL TIME POWER RESERVE 39MM STAINLESS STEEL SILVER DIAL 26120ST.OO.1220ST.01 0LLQCKShop this watch
Here is an iconic watch which rarely comes in on trade now a days. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 39mm stainless steel silver dial, dual time and power reserve indicator. This watch packs in all the usable features displayed clearly around the face of the dial. The Royal Oak designed in the early 70’s has been such a success that is the only design we all think of when we think AP. Not sure what the reason was for AP to stop production in 2014 with this watch but it surely has become rare and very desirable ever since. The 39mm brushed stainless steel case and fine detailed white gold screws on the bezel is an ideal sized watch that can be worn by a man or women with wrists size that range between 6 to 7 ½ inches. This watch at the time was also offered in a black and or a blue dial.
This particular one on my wrist is Previously Enjoyed, circa 2012, recently serviced. Truly an investment piece and belongs in a collectors portfolio.
BREGUET TRANSATLANTIQUE TYPE XXI FLYBACK STAINLESS STEEL RUTHENIUM DIAL 3810ST/92/9ZU 7LJX5VShop this watch
So excited to have acquired this Breguet for our collection. The Type XX was originally manufactured for the French Navy under the contract code number of Type XX. The type XXI which came into existence in 2004, updated with its more modern diameter of 42mm and very desirable for the growing demand for larger cased watches at the time. Breguet was not only a watch company but Louis Charles Breguet was an aviation designer and builder. The type XX collection was created as a pilots watch and over the years has gone through some amazing changes that makes this watch even more desirable. Besides having the traditional chronograph which Breguet was the original creator, the watch is also equipped with the flyback feature which allows continuous timing needed by the pilot to navigate through airspace. The Ruthenium dial which is part of the platinum metals group and adds a richness to the vintage like appearance paying homage to its roots and yet ideal for the dress sport watch category. A signature and distinctive design for Breguet is the column like pattern which is referred to as the “Cold Rolled Case” can be found on most of their sport models.
This watch sits flush against my 6 ½ inch wrists but would need a shorter strap to fit me just right. Ideal wrist size for this watch would be 7-8 inch wrists. Love every detail about this piece. This particular Breguet is a 2015 which has no signs of wear and in like new condition. Retail value $11,800 but an amazing buy at $7,100 previously enjoyed.
