The top 3 latest watch models of 2021
If you think about which watches should be particularly popular this year and especially since they have a good value position for future value development, you cannot ignore these three novelties:
- The new Patek Philippe Nautilus Ref. 5711 / 1A-014, now with an olive green dial:
Angry tongues could say that you simply swapped the familiar blue dial for an olive green dial. Technically and conceptually, however, absolutely nothing has changed. Nevertheless, this modernization of what is currently the most iconic watch in the world definitely belongs in a portfolio of stable value — this watch has already achieved higher prices than the recommended retail price will ever be.
- The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak ‘Jumbo’ Extra Thin Ref. 15202 in platinum with a green sunburst dial:
As a modern expression of the original size of the Royal Oak, the 15202 is an extremely popular reference. It will undoubtedly be a coveted item for anyone who keeps an eye on the latest developments around Audemars Piguet. The bright green dial and the strong limitation do the rest for a potential increase in value.
- The Patek Philippe Ref. 5236P — a single line perpetual calendar:
If there is one complication that Patek is most strongly identified with, it is arguably the perpetual calendar. The company produced its first wristwatch with a perpetual calendar, a one-off, in 1925. It has also made a perpetual calendar with a single-line display before — but this was a pocket watch that was completed in 1975 and is now in the Patek Museum — by the way together with the wristwatch from 1925.
The production of a wristwatch with a perpetual calendar in series, unlike a pocket watch, presents a number of challenges. Patek has mastered them all for this watch — a real modern innovation from an investment perspective and a watch that is very interesting in terms of value.
