Patek Philippe collectors often imagine which watches would be included in their dream collection, few manage to obtain them. The ‘Triazza’ collection is indeed a dream Patek Philippe collection, an incredible grouping that is not only testament to the taste and discernment of its present owner, but also where each individual watch has been carefully chosen for its peerless rarity, condition, beauty and provenance.
The collection is a veritable roll-call of breathtaking world-class rarities – the platinum 2499/100 is the only one in private hands and once belonged to Eric Clapton; the 2499 Tiffany & Co. double signed 3rd series of which only six are known; the 2523 ‘North America’ cloisonné dial of which only three in yellow gold are known; The great American collector Esmond Bradley Martin’s ‘North America’ cloisonné dial 605 HU and a sublime sector dial pocket watch, surely one of the most beautiful ever seen.
