If You Ca N’t Buy This Guy, You Have To Wait For A Year

Platinum case, diameter 40.5 mm, seconds reset button at 2 o’clock, silver grey solid silver dial, hand-stitched black alligator strap, solid platinum buckle. When the button above the crown is pressed, the second hand will automatically reset to zero and stay still while the button is pressed. Once the button returns to its home position, the second hand will move again. Equipped with Lange L033.1 hand-wound movement. Platinum and rose gold models are limited to 50 and 75, respectively, and are not priced in China.
    Lange’s high-end complex watches have always been poor in China. Last year, a customer took a platinum Lange 31 at the VIP event of Hengdeli Watch Store (then also called Xinyu Hengdeli), but it was not available in China, and neither red nor platinum. The customer was very eager to get this watch, and paid the full amount in advance with an exception to show his attitude and determination. After another year, the watch was available.
    Although gold watches are also considered gold ornaments, in the watch’s value system, they are mainly based on technical content and craftsmanship. Jewellery is based on raw materials, and the proportion of material prices is high. Therefore, in this round of rising gold prices, all gold jewelry on the market has been adjusted in price, while the price of gold watches has remained stable. But not increasing the price does not mean that the material is meaningless for the collection and preservation of the watch. Friends who are concerned about watch auctions should all have a deep understanding. Basically, it is gold watches that can mark high prices on the auction floor.
    For example, Christie’s “Exquisite Watches and Millennium Collections” spring auctions held in June this year, the top 10 transaction prices are 4 platinum watches, 2 red gold watches, 2 gold watches (one of which is Piaget jewelry watch) , 1 platinum watch. The top three are platinum watches, which are Patek Philippe 5002P, Patek Philippe 3939HP, and Jaeger-LeCoultre Gyrotourbillon 1 flip tourbillon perpetual calendar. And the only one without gold is the Royal Oak Tourbillon concept watch made of titanium, carbon fiber and high-tech ceramics launched by Audemars Piguet in 2008, which has also reached the ultimate in material quality.
    So, although you ca n’t expect to buy a gold watch to make money, at least it is more value-preserving than a steel watch, and it makes people feel more solid. In particular, gold watches with complex functions and limited editions can be transferred after they are bored, so as not to lose too much. The steel watch, with the exception of a few Patek Philippe and Rolex, basically does not have any value preservation.
