Inside The Patek Philippe Museum
I recently toured the Patek Philippe Museum located in Geneva, Switzerland, and it completely blew my mind!!! I was stunned with how beautiful Patek Philippe's historical collection was, and as time permits, in the future, I plan to publish a super-detailed review with many more detailed photos, of the splendor that lies behind these gates.

Triple Date Chronograph
1980 Reference 2499: Fourth Series
This magnificent Patek Philippe watch was auctioned by Antiquorum years ago and it is just beautiful. I have always preferred the black dial moon phase watches over the white, since they have more of a "nighttime" vibe. This watch was sold by Antiquorum Auction House in 2006 for around $300,000.
How rare is the Patek Philippe Reference 2499? Patek Philippe only made 370 examples in 35 years, which means only 9 per year!!! Who many exist with a black dial? I only know of 2 and this is one of them.

My great Pal, John Goldberger from Italy, just launched this special Limited Edition version of his Patek Philippe book, which is dedicated to ultra-rare stainless steel watches. John mentioned it is now available on Amazon.com for pre-order in the U.S.A. This new limited edition comes in a plexiglass case, and features a reference billboard that covers all steel Patek Philippe References. It also includes an updated 24 page book with the latest stainless steel Patek Philippe watches.

Nicolas Sarkozy was the President of France from 2007 to 2012, and he is pictured below during his presidency wearing his white gold Patek Philippe Triple Date Perpetual Calendar, Reference 3940.

The next set of photo shows U.S. President Obama meeting with French President, Sarkozy in the White House, Oval Office and Sarkozy is wearing his white gold Patek Philippe 3940.
Again, in the photo below we have another positive ID on the Patek Philippe Seal of Calatrava on the clasp.
I am including these photo of the white gold Patek Philippe Reference 3940G to give a frame of reference for what it looks like, but I have yet to find an image of this beautiful watch that accurately captures its stunningly good looks.

...Patek Philippe Coolness...
Rockin' A Custom Patek Philippe Reference 5004R At The 2013 Grammy's
Rock and Roll singer, singer, guitarist extroordinare, John Mayer is pictured below with his super-hot girlfriend, and fellow recording sensation, Katy Perry at the 2013 Grammy Awards.
It is difficult to see the exact detail on John Mayer's Patek Philippe. It appears to be a custom-made Patek Philippe 5004 in Rose gold, with a matching rose gold bracelet. John Mayer is also rocking some cool Patek Philippe cufflinks, that have the seal of Calatrava on them.
In the photo below, Ellen Degeneres seems to be in awe of Katy Perry's stunning necklace and can't seem to stop staring at it!
Same thing with Ryan Seacrest, who also can't seem to stop staring at Katy Perry's beautiful necklace!

New Piers Morgan Interview
Patek Philippe 3940
Charlie Sheen was back on Piers Morgan recently and this time he appears to be wearing a now classic Patek Philippe Reference 3940, with a slivered dial. Charlie appears to be a new man! Last year I did a story on Charlie Sheen's appearance on Piers Morgan, when he was in his absolutely fascinating "WINNING" phase, and he was wearing a Patek Philippe Reference 2438.
Here is an excerpt from the recent interview, and you can check out his Piers Morgan "Winning" interview below.

Eric Clapton's Platinum Patek Philippe
37.5MM 1987 Reference 2499/100
Sells for $3.6 Million At Christie's Auction
This is a photo of Eric Clapton's Platinum Patek Philippe Reference 2499 which sold recently at a Christies auction for $3.6 Million. This sets a new world record for the Patek Philippe Reference 2499, which Patek Philippe made for 35 years beginning in 1951.
The Reference 2499 is rare as Patek Philippe only made 349 of this watch mode, which averages about 10 per year. There are only two know Platinum versions of this reference, and the other one is in the Patek Philippe museum, making this one the only one in the world in private hands!!!
Eric Clapton is a huge watch/fanatic/collector and he is pictured below wearing his Patek Philippe Reference 5970, which is the son of the Reference 2499 that he just auctioned.
