Eric Clapton's Patek Philippe 2499 in Platinum

Hodinkee takes a look at what they consider to be one of the most important watches produced in the last 25 years: the Patek Philippe 2499 in Platinum. As they will you, the movement and casement on this watch are of strong distinction, beyond the fact that it landed on the write and collection of Eric Clapton.

“The 2499 is the holiest of references to Patek collectors, and this example, the only example in a white metal (that white metal being platinum, at that) in private hands belonging to one of the most famous rock stars on the planet, who also happened to a vintage watch collector of some note, added an entirely new element to the already perfect provenance of the piece. ”
