As dealers inantique pocket watches, vintage watches and other such movements we deal with are precious, vintage and valuable. We deal in these timepieces on a daily basis. But if you were to try and show someone who wasn’t as in tune with just how valuable a collectable classic is then why not compare it to the cost of buying a Ferrari to hit home how much these exemplary pieces cost?
Here are three of the finest from legendary manufacturers Patek Phillipe:
Watch: THE PATEK CALIBER 89
So just what makes this watch worth over 3 and a half million pounds? Well, basically, it is the most complicated watch the world has ever seen, with a total of 33 complications. Essentially, it would require for you to have a degree in mechanical engineering to understand, however suffice it to say it has everything but the kitchen sink.
Watch: SPLIT SECONDS PATEK PHILIPPE REFERENCE 1436 BY TIFFANY & CO.
Compared to the other Patek Phillipe movements on this list, this one is really rather cheap. You’re getting both the Patek and the Tiffany names in one hit after all. This timepiece is still an extremely fine and rare 18K gold split seconds chronograph wristwatch that comes with Breguet numerals and original box.

With its 506 minuscule parts, the Ref. 5016 represents a milestone in horological prowess, by marrying in its gold or platinum case the most coveted complications: a tourbillon, a minute repeater, a perpetual calendar with a retrograde date hand, and a moon phase display.
