An Italian banker based in Milan has spent almost ten years amassing a collection of ten Patek Phillipe watches . Now Alfredo Paramico’s personal set of watches is ranked one of the top ten across the world valuing approximately $25 million dollars. Let’s take a look at seven pieces from his masterful anthology.

  1. The first and most important piece is reference number 1518 orignally from 1943, and one of only four known in existence. It brings in about $6 million of the collection and features an everlasting calendar and chronograph.
  2. Number two is a white-gold single button Chronograph from 1928 unique because Patek does not typically use the alloy, and it is the only known in existence. It’s worth is tallied at $4 million.
