This is a watch dealers display. It is not a retailed clock. It is purchased by authorized watch sellers for their watch showroom advertising, and it was legally imported from a watch dealer in Europe. If you are not an authorized watch dealer, this item should be of no interest for you, unless you want to buy this for your own enjoyment, and that is totally understandable, as there are few of these in the whole world, and they are absolutely GORGEOUS! This is a used watch sellers display that is no longer in use, but understand that this is an advertising display clock for the authorized watch dealers. Not a clock meant for resale or retail sale. It is not a catalog item, and is not available for public purchase as a brand new clock through any retail sale. This clock is the equivalent to the elegant indoor and outdoor plaques, hangings and signs used for advertising, promotion and display of the watches. Simply put, it is an elegant and very fancy showroom watch display clock manufactured in Germany, and intended for the use of the authorized watch sellers only. Do not confuse this with the wonderful watches available for retail purchase. This is an advertising display, and following, is the description of this magnificent clock:
This wall clock is a complicated masterpiece that you will treasure for a lifetime. It is a Patek Philippe watch dealer’s showroom display clock that features the 8 day key wound mechanical German movement.. The clocks complicated mechanical movement is a cable driven regulator assembly. The intricate pulley and high polished yellow gold toned weight system, combined with the yellow gold finish pendulum run this complicated masterpiece with true precision. When it comes to clocks, this is truly a complicated and accurate timepiece, and I have yet to see any clock that compares to this one. The metallic sparkling Phantom dial is absolutely gorgeous! Very difficult to photograph and explain but the dial will give a sparkle shimmer effect depending on the light source hitting from different angles. Nothing like you’ve ever seen before…and again difficult to explain, hence the many photographs taken. Keep in mind that I’m not a professional photographer, to take this pictures I used my 5MP Canon digital camera.
The clock is an all German built and assembled 8 day clock, and features the intricate and sophisticated system with the pendulum, which provides precise accuracy, once the simple adjustment is made to the clock. The adjustment is made one time only, and that is right after you mount it to the wall. The clock strikes the hours, as well as the 1/2 hours. The clocks rich, opulent walnut/cherry cabinet is in solid dark hardwood finely hand crafted and hand finished. The clocks hardware (door latches and hinges) are in the 18K yellow gold overlay, and the magnificent glare resistant, tinted and polished bevel edged glass not only protect the magnificent movement, but make this mechanical masterpiece the most spectacular watch dealer’s display that you have ever seen!! It allows a clear view of the clock’s dial, pendulum, regulator weights and movement. This is a nice sized wall clock, and measures approximately 36″x tall, 12-3/4″x wide 6-3/4″ deep. It’s pre-owned, approximately 4 years old. The clock has been recently cleaned and serviced and does keep accurate time. Also included below are the photographs taken when I had the movement cleaned, showing exactly how complicated the gear train mechanical movement actually is.
I WILL HAVE THE CLOCK PROFESSIONALS PACKED, THE CLOCK WILL BE MEASURED A BOX INCLUDING FOAM WILL BE CREATED IN ORDER TO SECURE THE CLOCK DURING IT’S TRANIT TIME, THIS IS NOT SOMETHING I’M TRYING, I’VE HAD THIS DONE SEVERAL TIMES WITH MUCH MORE FRAGILE PIECES .THIS CLOCK WILL BE SHIPPED BY COURIER, WITHIN 2 TO 5 BUSINESS DAYS OF THE PAYMENT BEING RECEIVED.
