More Patek Philippe Nautilus Replicas: A Minute Repeater, Split-Second Chronograph Duo & One with Enamel DialThe story about the high-priced Patek Philippe Nautilus Replica watches continues with Reference 5074 - a self-winding minute repeater with a perpetual calendar. This pink gold watch with a snap on the case back from 2007 was bought for astonishing $461,000 (the fourth highest paid watch). This auction is the first occasion in which this timekeeper was offered to public (it was previously owned by a selected buyer). The 42 mm wide round timepiece works on Caliber R 27 Q movement with the Geneva seal of certification and it includes 39 jewels and has a distinguished silvered matte dial.

The other models by the same brand that stand out due to their quality and the price (even in such an exclusive company of 13 models over $100,000) were two split-second chronographs. The first of them is the fifth placed Reference 5950 with a 37 mm wide cushion-shaped stainless steel case which was sold for $413,000. This 2012 timepiece is made with an exceptionally thin Caliber CHR 27-525 PS that bears the Patek Philippe Nautilus Replica seal (whose criteria are even tougher than for the Geneva seal).

Other split-seconds chronograph by Patek Philippe Nautilus Replica at the Christie's auction was Reference 5959. It was paid $293,000, which made it the eighth highest paid watch at the event. This rare 33 wide platinum piece with a white dial was made in 2005.Richard Mille Replica Watches It is especially significant since it is the brand's first chronograph to be completely made in-house. One of the additional perks of the watch is that its 27-jeweled movement is ultra-thin.
Probably the prettiest piece at the entire auction was Patek Philippe Nautilus Replica Reference 2481 which has a mesmerizing cloisonne enamel dial depicting "Foirest Vierge" (Virgin Forest). This beautiful 2418S-reference dial is one of just eight of this type that exist,Tag Heuer Replica Watches two of which are exhibited in the brand's Geneva museum. It was made by famed enameller Marguerite Koch who was employed by the Stern Freres.

The same manner (which is very costly when it comes to making enamel dial) is used to make this watch which originates from 1953. The men's gold timekeeper with three central hands was discovered only recently.
Feather-Light Watch made for Rafa NadalThough there were most timekeepers by Patek Phillipe in the company of the highest sold watches (naturally excluding the Rolex that was paid more than a million), some of the products by other watchmaker grabbed hefty sums. Firstly, we have Richard Mille Rafael Nadal RM027-01 model made in 2012. We have previously written about this ultra-light model when it was unveiled at the SIHH 2013. The watch weighs only 19 grams, which makes it one of the lightest tourbillons ever to be produced. One of the contributors to that figure is its 48 mm wide case made of carbon composite. Furthermore, its movement with 19 jewels (made of titanium and Lital and with aluminum-lithium bridges) weighs only 3.83 which is pretty awesome.
