Patek Philippe Ref. 1518 Perpetual Calendar Chronograph Rose Gold Replica Watches For Sale

In 1941 the world was in the midst of WWII, yet this was also the time that Patek Philippe fake watches introduced a landmark watch, the ref.1518. This was not only Patek Philippe’s very first watch that united both a perpetual calendar with a chronograph, but also the very first time that such a watch was made in series.

Summarize

During the 14 years that the ref. 1518 was in production, only 281 of them were made. The war probably had a big impact on this, as it involved all of Patek Philippe’s major markets. For now, that means that that the ref.1518 is quite rare, especially since the majority of them were made in yellow gold. Pink gold was much rarer, and only 12 watches are known that combined this with a pink dial. The result of this is stunning, even more so because it offers such a vibrant contrast with the moon phase disc as well as the blued hands for the date and the chronograph.

Big price

This particular ref.1518 is not only a landmark piece, in one of the rarest color combinations, but goes even further than that. It is currently the only one known to have been fitted with this original bracelet. It was made by the reknowned bracelet makers Gay Frères and a custom order for Patek Philippe copy watches. With a width of 20mm and a thickness of 5mm, it is a very substantial bracelet, for which the original owner paid 1.000,- Swiss Francs, which was almost the same amount as he had to pay for the watch itself.

The combination, however, is nothing short of spectacular. No wonder that it had no problem exceeding its estimate when this particular watch was auctioned in 2015 by Phillips. Selling for 1.445.000,- Swiss Francs it lived up to its expectations. However, it is not unlikely that it would sell for much more will it come up for auction again in the near future, as the appreciation of owning the rarest version of an already rare watch is definitely on an incline.

MB&F HM6 Alien Nation Replica Limited Edition Watches For Sale

Unveiled a few weeks ago – after all four examples had already been sold – the HM6 Alien Nation replica watches are what you have come to expect from MB&F – space age, whimsical and impressively constructed. But it might also be seen as a parable of the modern world, the modern day horological equivalent of dramatic allegorical paintings by European masters.

A weird watch

If “Alien Nation” does indeed refer to an extraterrestrial civilisation, then it would be one just like the capitalist world studied by authors like Thomas Piketty and decried by anti-globalisation protestors. The alien world has its own one percent, ensconced comfortably in the captain’s chair on the front of the watch. Unsurprisingly he appears to be wearing slightly fancier clothing, with a shirt of sorts that those toiling below him lack.

The alien captain MB&F replica watches are essentially a miniature sculpture, hand-finished and made of solid white gold. Each of the other alien figures are similarly crafted, though it would be hilarious if the captain was solid gold and everyone else was made of brass.

Ah, everyone else, the intergalactic equivalent of galley slaves. There are five other alien inside the craft, all appearing to be toiling away except for one fellow who’s either on strike or dead from exhaustion. Or perhaps he’s the captain’s nephew.

Cleverly positioned so as to appear to be driving the mechanics of the movement, the aliens are all mounted on the top plate of the movement, which is almost entirely exposed through the sapphire crystal case.

Allegorical portrayals aside, the HM6 Alien Nation is one of the most elaborately put-together MB&F watches ever. The case is sapphire crystal all round, with the front and back each being a large piece with the bubbles mounted on the top.

So it is

Each sapphire dome has underneath a key element of the MB&F fake watches: hours and minutes on the lower half, turbines linked to the automatic winding mechanism above, and the tourbillon in the centre.
