If you have not yet seen it, the most recent ‘Talking Watches’ from Hodinkee features Jean Arnault’s great collection, including this extremely rare ref.10P we had the pleasure to deal with. This extremely rare Patek Philippe ref.10 in Platinum, unlike typical examples of the reference, is just one of just a very small few known in Platinum without sub seconds. In this special configuration it looks simply superb.
We are so pleased to have seen this watch go to such a passionate, well researched and transparent collector in Jean. We’ve now had the pleasure of sourcing and selling two of these great ref.10 in Platinum without sub seconds, and it is such a pleasure to see them being appreciated for their rarity and history, worn and enjoyed! We invite you to watch the whole video, which is excellent and can be viewed below on Hodinkee's YouTube channel. You can see more details of this fantastic watch in the collection on our website, seen here
In the video Jean features other excellent pieces from his collection such as a superb prototype FPJ Octa Reserve de Marche, an excellent Patek Philippe ref.3970P in wonderful condition and Louis Vuitton World Time Minute repeater custom watch with impressive enamelled dial amongst a couple of other excellent watches. Jean also touches on some of the great projects he is working on with LV watches and talks about the LV watches competition, a fantastic competition to highlight young watchmakers, something we think is very important for the community. You can read more about the pieces below on the following link and understand a little more about the great work Jean is doing with LV and La Fabrique du Temps.
