You want the best in modern watchmaking? You’re looking at it. Tomorrow in Hong Kong, Christie’s will offer up three of the most interesting, provocative, and important examples of today’s horology all in one room.
They have an MB&F HM3 in white gold, an Urwerk 202 in a rare configuration of dark Blue PVD coated platinum (blue platinum, you fo’ real?) and finally, the rarest of them all, a Harry Winston Opus V. The Opus V is heralded by many as one of the most importantof the past decade, combining Maximillian Busser’s business sense as then head of Harry Winston Timepieces and the technical skills of the boys at Urwerk.
The Opus V helped pave the way for both MB&F and Urwerk to become the powerhouse independent brands that they are today, and it’s also what we imagine will be the only chance to own a watch with ties to both Mr. Busser and Mr. Baumgartner in the foreseeable future. Only 45 Opus V’s were made in platinum and most are locked away in collectors’ safes.
Oh and by the way, there is also a De Bethune perpetual calendar in the sale. Boom. Go Nuts.
