The Rolex Deep Sea Special Review

March 2012 UPDATE:  See Our Special Report on the New Rolex Deepsea Challenge Watch !!!

“This is Trieste. We are on the bottom of Challenger Deep. . . . Over.”

— U.S. Navy LT Don Walsh, on January 23, 1960

The Watch Replica that is water-resistant to 35,840 feet…in the metal…

Yes, that’s right — 35,840 feet deep, or about 11,000 meters — is how deep the Rolex Deep Sea Special has been.  That’s the equivalent of almost 7 miles below the surface. In fact it was to the bottom of the deepest part of Ocean — the southern end of the Mariana Trench known simply as “Challenger Deep” — that the Watch Replica and two brave souls went, 50 years ago.

Thanks to the great people at Liljenquist & Beckstead of McLean VA (Washington DC), I recently had the privilege and honor to experience firsthand this Rolex Deep Sea Special.  As one of the pre-eminent Rolex dealers on the East Coast (among the many other luxury brands they carry — A. Lange, Hublot, Breguet, et al.), Lijenquist & Beckstead was selected to play host to a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the TRIESTE‘s descent aka the “Deepest Dive”.

In the below photo, Don Walsh explains the TRIESTE.  The sphere at the bottom of the vessel that Walsh is pointing to is where he and Piccard were situated for the mission — about the size of a large refrigertator, according to Walsh.  And for **just** 9 hours!  Interestingly, as Walsh explained it, the Rolex Deep Sea Special was not technically affixed to the outside of the vessel  (though obviously was still exposed to the ocean elements and every bit of the pressure).  Did I just shatter a bit of popular Watch Replica folklore?

Specifically, they put on a fine event hosting U.S. Navy LT Don Walsh (co-captain of the TRIESTE) and senior representatives of Rolex USA.  And of course, the legendary Rolex Deep Sea Special was front and center.

It was January 23, 1960, to be precise, and the two brave souls were U.S. Navy LT Don Walsh and Swiss engineer Jacques Piccard.  They piloted TRIESTE, a crude vessel known as a bathyscaph, to the “Challenger Deep” and back.  And they took a very special Rolex with them.  The feat of a human, or a Watch Replica , descending to such depths has never been repeated.

I must say it was quite an honor to shake hands and chat with LT Don Walsh.  If you want to know what a true American Hero is like, you need go no farther than Don Walsh.  In my brief conversation with him, Don was wonderful — easy to speak with and clearly full of knowledge stemming from his lifetime of experience in and around the marine environment.  I only wish I had more time to question and listen to the stories of his achievement and adventure.  Don was gracious to make himself available for several hours at the store, chatting with fans and enthusiasts, signing autographs, shaking hands, and posing for pictures (don’t mind that non-Rolex wearing fellow on the right):

Not surprisingly, Don Walsh has been a Rolex-wearer since 1960.  And the man knows how to throw down a wrist shot:

Doing a bit of research on the topic, I came to discover that there are myriad reports of Don Walsh and Jacques Piccard’s famous journey.  For example, Jake’s Rolex Blog has extensive writings on the subject.  Thus the reason that the focus of this article is on my personal experience with Don Walsh and the Rolex Deep Sea Special and not much more.   I will, however, recommend two very recent, very nicely written articles that I came across that I think you will enjoy.

First, Navy honors officer 50 years after voyage to ocean depths, by Michael E. Ruane, The Washington Post (excerpt below):

The sunlight began to fade a few hundred feet down. Shades of gray turned to black. The steel structure groaned as the water pressure increased, and the Trieste sank toward the fabled gorge in the Pacific Ocean floor known as Challenger Deep.

“Don Walsh is one of only two people to have visited Earth’s deepest place, and no one else has come close,” said Gil Grosvenor, National Geographic’s chairman of the board. “His accomplishment ranks along with those of our other Hubbard Medal recipients, people like Robert Byrd, Charles Lindbergh, and Robert Ballard.” Jacques Piccard died in 2008, at the age of 86.”

 

and Deepest Dive: Geographic Honors Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, by Ford Cochran, National Geographic (exerpt below):

…National Geographic bestowed its highest honor, the Hubbard Medal, on Walsh in a ceremony at our Washington, D.C. headquarters. The U.S. Department of the Navy also awarded Walsh its Distinguished Public Service Award.

One thousand feet. Two thousand feet. At 2,400 feet, the two crewmen dimmed the cabin lights to let their eyes adjust. At about 13,000 feet, they entered the abyssal zone — “the timeless world of eternal darkness,” one of them wrote later.

At 31,000 feet, they echo-sounded for the bottom. There was no return. At 32,400 feet, a thick window cracked with a bang. Farther down they went. Into the bleak hadal zone, named for Hades, the ancient Greek underworld. Finally, at 35,800 feet, then-Navy Lt. Don Walsh, 28, phoned the surface: “This is Trieste. We are on the bottom of Challenger Deep. . . . Over.”

In summary, let me again extend my thanks and congratulations to everyone at Liljenquist & Beckstead for the fine event.  And a very special thank you also goes to freelance photographer Dunks Photo for the first class camera work.

50 years later, I and the rest of the world look back in awe and wonder on the inspirational achievement of Don Walsh, Jacques Piccard, and the Rolex Deep Sea Special!

Meet The Unique Titanium Patek Philippe Watches Replica

 

Patek 5712T titanium Watch Replica

It began almost five years ago, when I discovered a titanium Patek Ref 5180T and titanium Patek Ref 6000T.  The first and only titanium-cased Patek Philippe’s I had ever heard of, noted also by its reference number with the “T” at the end.  After doing some quick background work, I profiled these two pieces for Perpetuelle readers in my article “Two Titanium Patek Philippe’s You Didn’t Know Existed” (November 19, 2009).

Further, each of these ten pieces I believe to be a unique piece.  But there could be more.  And so to this question of how many titanium Patek Philippe’s exist, the one answer that I can state as undoubtedly accurate today is this:  very few.   Likely only Patek Philippe knows the true number. Let’s take a closer look at our exclusive list of Titanium Patek Philippe Watches Replica Replica you’ve likely never seen, until now…

 

*****UPDATE*****

Of course the first and best place to search for the answer to such a question is Patek itself.  So late last November — roughtly five years after the Ref 5180T and Ref 6000T seeded the question in my head– I contacted Patek Philippe to get an answer.  Patek revealed to me that only four such titanium Patek Philippe references exist, all unique pieces, all done to support either Children Action (a Geneva-based charitable organization) or Only Watch (a biennial Geneva-based charitable Watch Replica auction).

It got me to wondering — just how many pieces has Patek Philippe cased in titanium?  Turns out it’s a good question.  After researching the matter a bit I still do not know the precise answer.  However, I have compiled what I believe is the only comprehensive list of titanium Patek Philippe wristwatches known to exist today — and there are ten of them, including the Patek Philippe “The Flawless Officer” (Ref 3928T) with a 9.44 carat D-flawless diamond-set caseback (!!).

So there you have it.  The definitive list of titanium Patek Philippe Watches Replica Replica.  Right?  Wrong.  In fact this is far from the end of the story.  Read on for more, after a look at these four titanium references:

Patek Philippe Ref. 5004T– made for Only Watch 2013

So as I say this is definitely not the end of the story nor the list — and I’ll tell you why:  in my research to find out how many titanium Patek Philippe Watches Replica Replica really exist, I had also heard from that there were other titanium Pateks that existed — one-off commissions for valued clients.  And thus perhaps the existence of which Patek would prefer not to disclose.  Well, the existence of at least some of these references is now official, thanks to Sotheby’s, which is set to sell six exclusive titanium Patek’s at its June 10, 2014 on the Sotheby’s Important Watches Replica” auction in New York.  This list includes the following:

We know with certainty that the pieces for Only Watch and Children Action are unique; it is also almost certain that the above titanium references are also unique pieces.  It would be highly unusual, though I suppose possible, for Patek to agree to commission more than one of each of these.

Are there other titanium Patek’s out there?  Possibly.  But aside from publicized pieces such as those for Only Watch and (much-lesser-publicized) Children Action, commissioned Patek’s will only make themselves known when they come to auction.  If you are aware of other such pieces, please let me know.

***

And there you have it – Perpetuelle’s exlusive list of elusive Patek Philippe references.   A list of eight Patek Philippe wristwatches, cased in titanium, all believe to be one-of-a-kind and the existence of which has remained largely unknown until now.  Of course a unique pieces is a unique piece — but a unique piece Patek Philippe cased in titanium?  Now that’s something special.

Introducing Patek Philippe Saga Resurrected

It started in June 2010 with a Patek Philippe Ref. 1463 Watch Replica to be auctioned by Christie’s — the Watch Replica was purportedly of great provenance, a gift to a Mr. Donald Woolbright from the late billionaire, investor, aviator, & film producer-turned philanthropist Howard Hughes.  What a Watch Replica to own, eh?!  Christie’s was certainly not shy in playing up the Howard Hughes connection of the Watch Replica .  Naturally, I featured the Watch Replica on Perpetuelle on June 3, 2010, expressing admiration for Hughes and excitement for the auction.  Not so fast, though — an unsolicited and completely out-of-the-blue comment by one Paul B. Winn on my article Howard Hughes Patek Philippe Ref. 1463 Up At Auction turned my world upside down and launched a tantalizing story of mystery, stonewalling and deceit.  It unfolded over the next two weeks on Perpetuelle.com.Tag Heuer Replica Watches

In the latest edition of FORBES magazine, widely-published Watch Replica journalist Jack Forster, in his multi-faceted article Time Bandits (pages 156-160 of the May 7, 2012 issue), resurrects the story of the now famous “Howard Hughes” Patek Philippe Watch Replica which sold at auction in June 2010 for $254,500.  Unfortunately (though unintentionally), Perpetuelle was not credited for the brief mention that the story received in FORBES. Yes, while “famous” is perhaps a bit strong to describe the notoriety of this event, the Curious Case of the “Howard Hughes” Patek Philippe was a story that originated here at Perpetuelle.com, and for those of you who missed it the first time around, follow me now as I recount the saga.  This is one interesting story!

 

You see, Paul B. Winn, as I soon learned, was a former personal secretary to Howard Hughes — one of the rare men in the notoriously secretive Hughes’ “inner circle” on a day-to-day basis.  In his comment on Perpetuelle.com, Winn was highly skeptical that the Watch Replica (nay, any Watch Replica ) was in fact gifted to Woolbright by Hughes.  Upon receiving Winn’s comment (you can read his remarks here), I exchanged emails with, and then proceeded to speak at length with him.

My investigative research revealed that Donald Woolbright, among other things, was a street-hustler with 26 arrests on charges ranging from burglary to fencing and assault to carrying a concealed weapon.  He had only a faint (and unseemly) connection to Howard Hughes.  Indeed, Woolbright’s only documented connection to Howard Hughes was for his involvement in “Hughesgate” which resulted in Woolbright’s indictment for receiving stolen property and attempting to extort a $1 million ransom for papers that were stolen from Hughes’ Romain Street offices.  Clearly a man whose credibility could be considered lacking.  And certainly not the type of person upon whom Howard Hughes would bestow a Patek Philippe Watch Replica .  At least that’s the only logical conclusion that I could arrive at.

Based upon these conversations and my further investigation of Donald Woolbright (who I learned had recently passed away), I was increasingly convinced that Paul Winn, a man who I could see having no horse in this race, was right — the Patek Philippe Ref 1463 was NOT gifted by Howard Hughes to Donald Woolbright.  Empowered by the facts of my investigation, I was determined to bring the truth into the light.  I was confident that Christie’s would act honorably and pull the Watch Replica from the auction lineup.  I was wrong — dead wrong.

With this information in hand, my next call was to Christie’s auction house.  Upon my inquiry as to the provenance of the Watch Replica , my suspicion was even further heightened.   It was clear that I caught Christie’s flat-footed.  Once Christie’s learned I was questioning the provenance of the Watch Replica , they began to stonewall.  First, the Watch Replica department passed me to the press department.  Then, days later, a terse statement was issued (…the auction will go on!).  Unwilling to back down given the litany of information in support of my case, I persisted.  Still, Christie’s press representatives refused to return my repeated phone calls — even though they were fully aware that I had raised serious, legitimate doubts as to the provenance of their “Howard Hughes” Watch Replica .

Undeterred, I decided to publish an Open Letter to the Christie’s Watch and Press Department, just one day before the Watch Replica was to be sold at auction.  Clearly, my message was that Christie’s should pull the Watch Replica from the auction, pending further research given the Patek’s dubious and undocumented association.  Alas I was not persuasive enough.  Nor did the public support of Geoff Schumacher — Las Vegas writer, author of “Howard Hughes: Power, Paranoia & Palace Intrigue” (Stephens Press, 2008) and proprietor of The Howard Hughes Blog — bear any credence with Christie’s.

Far from asking for the world, I had only a few simple questions which would easily put the dubious story of the Watch Replica to rest.  Who told Christie’s the story of Donald Woolbright and this Watch Replica ? Did Christie’s independently corroborate this story (i.e. that the Watch Replica was given by Hughes to Woolbright)? Is there any tangible/physical evidence to support the notion that this Watch Replica has any association with Howard Hughes (e.g. the handwritten note)? If so, has the authenticity of the tangible/physical items been corroborated?  Either willfully ignorant or completely clueless, it did not look good for Christie’s.

On June 16, 2010, the so-called “Howard Hughes” Patek Philippe Ref 1463 sold for a whopping $254,500. 

And that is where the story ended.  To this day, Christie’s has not provided me with ANY information or documentation which supports the purported provenance of the “Howard Hughes” Patek Philippe.  Christie’s is, to me, the most disappointing actor in this entire saga.  The power was theirs to stop the auction in the face of an overwhelming case that the Watch Replica ’s provenance was not as it was purported to be.  The onus was on them.  Money and hubris are not easily given up, unfortunately.

If you’ve read this far, I thank you and I hope you’ve enjoyed the report.  Though I had put this series of events well behind me, the FORBES mention brought it vividly roaring back to the present and I felt compelled to recount the story.  My hope is that the purchaser of the “Howard Hughes” Patek Philipe Ref 1463 might one day find my writings here, and the two of us might engage in a delightful conversation on the topic.  For those who want more, I suggest reading my series of blog posts in reverse-chronological order in order to experience the saga as it unfolded on Perpetuelle.  As always I welcome your comments.

Richemont, SWatches Replica To Acquire Top Level Internet Domains

Will www.buy.omega, www.shop.panerai, authentic.watches, or authorized-dealer.iwc be coming soon to the Internet?  With the pending registration of these Top Level Domains (TLDs) by Richemont and Swatch Group, it is certainly a possibility.  So what exactly does the future hold for websites that bypass the traditional “.com” in favor of extensions such as “.cartier” “.piaget” “.swatch” or any of the other aforementioned extensions?   Read on as we take you through this Perpetuelle Exclusive report on one of the most profound — and controversial — changes the Internet will ever experience and how luxury giants including Swatch Group, Richemont, Chanel, Hermes, Ferrari, Lambhorgini and more are staying close to the action…Omega Replica


The Genesis

It all starts with ICANN, the nonprofit private organization which oversees to oversees coordination of the Internet’s domain names (among other Internet management-related tasks).  After almost seven years of deliberation and policy development, ICANN launched the  New gTLD, or “generic Top Level Domains”, Program in January 2012.

Richemont Among Top Ten Applicants

original graphic source

On June 13, 2012, ICANN revealed the list of applicants for new gTLDs.  While tech blogs, computer geeks and nerds everywhere were salivating to see who had applied to own a piece of the new Internet frontier, yours truly had his eye on the ball of what matters here at Perpetuelle:  wristwatches.

The New gTLD program is profound, essentially enabling the registration of an unlimited number of domains (even those in foreign languages such as Arabic and Chinese) to compete and innovate alongside the likes of mainstays such as .com, .net. or .org.  Though open to anyone in the world, the ability to register a new gTLD requires significant capital ($185,000 per name) and resources and as such is effectively a business proposition.  The application process for new gTLDs closed April 12, 2012, with more than 1,100 applicants seeking over 1,400 new domain extensions.

Of course it was expected that Internet giants Google, Amazon and hundred-million-dollar plus-investment-backed Donuts Inc. (essentially a hedge fund investing in domain names) would be among the largest applicants.  And that domains such as “.app” “.inc” “.blog” “.book” and “.shop” would among the most popular, sought-after domains.   And indeed they were.  But was anyone expecting Richemont Group to make the top ten?  Indeed, Richemont did make the top ten list, with fourteen top level Internet domain extensions applied for:

Application Fee per domain:  $185,000

 

 

Application Fee per domain:  $185,000

Noticeably absent from the list were horology powerhouses such as Rolex (the world’s largest Watch Replica brand), Patek Philippe and Breitling, to name a few.  Also missing from the process was LVMH (TAG Heuer).  It is likely that these brands are some mix of a) clueless, and b) taking a “wait and see” approach.  Given the many unknowns and the  “slow-moving” tendencies of many these brands (particularly when it comes to the Internet), “wait and see” seems rational.

As you can see list list includes most of Richemont’s major Watch Replica brands.  Richemont also applied for generic terms such as .Watch and Chinese symbol for “Watch”, as well as  e-commerce properties such as Mr. Porter and Net-A-Porter.

Also in the mix is the Swatch Group — the world’s largest Watch Replica conglomerate.  Swatch applied for the “.Swatch” and “.Omega” extensions.

Why So Quiet, Richemont?  What Say You, Swatch?

But I wondered — what was the motivation for Swatch and Richemont?  As I mentioned in the intro, these groups also joined the likes of  Chanel, Hermes, Ferrari, and Lambhorgini — among many other high-end consumer brands — in applying for their piece of the Internet future.   My request for comment from Richemont’s Public Relations and Digital Media groups generated a “no comment.”  However, Swatch Group’s Head of Media Relations did respond to my questions and request for comment. When asked why The Swatch Group engaged in this process, the reply was:

“Swatch Group follows all the developments in the field of communication and considers Internet as one of the most important communication channels. It was a logical decision for Swatch Group to apply for certain new gTLDs which could be of the highest importance for its business.  Swatch Group considers new gTLDs as an interesting new communication opportunity.

Swatch and Omega are two of the most important brands in the Swatch Group portfolio.  Both brands are already today using Internet as an important communication channel.  New gTLDs open new opportunities for the communication of these two brands. How they will use and operate the new gTLDs, and when, is under evaluation at Swatch Group management level.

But What About e-Commerce?

It is entirely possible that both Swatch and Richemont are securing these new domains as a defensive maneuver, with no clear plan in mind; they certainly have the financial wherewithal to do such a thing.  Or perhaps their strategic discussions at the management level are more advanced — perhaps there is a strategic end in mind, and securing these new domains is the first step in the process.  Admittedly, most all of this is purely speculative, based only upon my informed perspective on, and daily contact with, the Swiss Watch Replica industry.

Such a reply was perhaps expected, given the very early innings of this process.  I did inquire specifically as to whether or not Swatch intended to use these domains for e-commerce purposes, but was only given the response above; Swatch very clearly indicates that the new gTLDs are viewed as an interesting new “communication opportunity”.   I am not convinced that e-commerce is not part of the strategy here, but it’s just a hunch.

Conclusions

So what does all this mean, in particular for you the Watch Replica consumer?  In the near term, not much.  And yes, while much of this is perhaps “inside baseball” at this point in time, there is over time a high degree of likelihood that something will come of these domain registrations.  Over the longer term, in a post ‘.com’ world, there clearly is the possibility for far-reaching implications in the manner that you will learn, interact and yes perhaps even shop for your favorite Watch Replica brands.

Perpetuelle will continue to monitor and report on any significant developments in this area.
