In fact, Forbes lists a 1933 goldPatek Philippe with 24 complications as the most expensive watch ever sold - a whopping $11million. This particular watch was auctioned off at Sothebys.Patek Philippe creates what experts agree to be the finest timepieces in the world. The watchesare timekeeping instruments of benchmark stature. They are also works of art whose beautyreflects their mechanical perfection. Timelessly elegant, these Swiss made watches are proudlyhanded down form one generation to the next. Patek Philippe popular models include theCalatrava, Annual Calendar, Nautilus, Gondolo, Aquanaut and Ladies Twenty-4.Going on a tour through history, it was in 1868 that the first Patek Philippe wristwatch was made. Itwas started by Polish watchmaker Antoni Norbert Patek in Geneva. Swiss-made and masterfullycrafted, the Patek Philippe brand is now recognized throughout the world as a top collectibleamong watch enthusiasts.Patek even created the most complicated watch with 33 mechanical complications, unchallengedas the only one with the most complications as it is even able to add the extra day to Februaryduring leap years.So if you own one of the sought after Patek Philippe watches, then it is a rightful given that you arealso a very wealthy or an extra lucky person as these watches are being auctioned off to the tuneof millions of dollars at the classiest auction houses in the world. There is even a Patek Philippemuseum in Geneva honoring the time valued timepieces.First, wristwatches should be service every couple of years. These are mechanical devices andthey are, of course, not free from failure. If you are a big watch enthusiast and have personallylearned and mastered the art and science behind taking care of timepieces, then consider yourselfa guru and you can surely repair any concerns with your own wristwatches.Second, I cannot stress it more that you should go to an authorized repair shop with craftsmenwho are well versed to the mechanical ongoing of a watch. If you go the frugal route and let someunauthorized watch repair shop handle your precious timepiece, sometimes they change themechanical pieces that makes it exceptionally work. Make sure that you completely trust the repairman and that they have the genuine parts needed in the repairing of your watch. You do not wanta generic part on your watch for that would be a travesty of epic proportions.
    • Third, since most of these have crystal inside the mechanical device, you need to make sure thatthe part to be replaced should also be the same crystal. If it is a plastic crystal, please do notreplace it with another form of crystal like sapphire. This does not put extra value on yourtimepiece, and it will be frowned upon by the watch enthusiasts of the world. You should alwaysstick with original and genuine parts. Take this note; those parts were specifically chosen by thecompany craftsmen to particularly work in union with all the parts of the watch.Finally, do always mind the leather. Do think of the humidity of the place where you keep it. If youhave a timepiece with a leather strap, this should always be kept in mind, do not put it directly onsunlight as it will make the leather lose its natural strength and it might chap. Beware of thesolutions you use in polishing the leather, too.These are just some of the important things to remember in taking care of your Patek Philippewatch. Be mindful of these thins and your timepiece will serve its work and elegance. And unless amater of life and death, do not just sell you watch without knowing the appraisal value of it. Youcan even make it a heirloom piece for with proper protection and care, it will stay with the familythrough generations.Ted Laurance is a watch enthusiast who shares his knowledge and expertise of genuinetimepieces to his acquaintances. He has an undying ardor for Patek Philippe, Breitling, Michele,and other fine brands.Article Source:http://EzineArticles.com/?expert=Ted_Laurence==== ====Patek Philippe Vintage Womens Watch 18K Gold for sale by original owner.
