Xupes adds a rare Patek Phillipe 175th Anniversary 5975R-001 Watch Owned by Music Legend Eric Clapton To Its Collection
Pre-owned luxury e-retailer, Xupes, has announced the addition of a rare Patek Phillipe 175th Anniversary Watch, to their collection. The extraordinary piece was previously owned by three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Eric Clapton.
The rare, multi-scale chronograph 5975R-001 timepiece was purchased by the music legend and was a 175th Anniversary ‘invitation only’ item from the Swiss luxury watchmakers. The 5975R was made to celebrate Patek Philippe’s 175th Anniversary (1839-2014), which is indicated on the solid case back. This was not a production piece, so numbers on this were extremely limited and the ‘invitation only’ aspect would have been restricted to very few elite Patek Philippe customers as a gesture to own part of their history. The multiscale consists of three different scales, including a tachymeter, telemeter and a pulsimeter. Additionally, it harnesses three concentric chronograph scales that are extremely similar to the ones used by Second World War pilots. The classic brown leather strap complements the 18 carat rose gold case and this unique timepiece is a spectacular addition to any watch connoisseur’s collection. It is also an exciting opportunity to own a watch previously worn by arguably the UK’s most successful rock and blues musician.
The Patek Phillipe 175th Anniversary Watch is only one of many incredible timepieces available from Xupes. The e-tailer’s experts preserve a collection of the very best modern and vintage pre-owned timepieces, featuring brands such as Rolex, Omega, IWC, Cartier as well as Patek Phillippe, with pieces ranging from £1,000 to £100,000. From the initial stages of authentication, through to refurbishment and quality control, each item is rigorously tested by Xupes’s in-house master watchmakers.
