Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar Ceramic
This is a full ceramic watch (case & bracelet), a ticking cult object in my eyes. The Royal Oak is sold for 91.800 Euro including 20 % VAT and almost impossible to get. Audemars Piguet is doing an excellent job these days!
Bulgari Octo Finissimo Automatic
The thinnest automatic wristwatch (height: 5,15 mm) on the market, full ceramic, good looking and cool. You may choose in-between two versions: one with with leather strap and one with ceramic bracelet. I prefer the full ceramic version, the latter is sold for 13.500 Euro including 20 % VAT.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Geographic
It is good to look in its archives ... cool retro design made by Jaeger-LeCoultre. I love this unique in-house developed and manufactured world-time mechanism and if executed this way that's just a must-have-watch. Sold for 9800 Euro including 20 % VAT.

That's my personal hero 2017! Yes, I posses one! The 2012 pieces made were sold in only 4 hours, 15 minutes and 43 seconds online. A coup de main, ingenious marketing and on top a real cool watch. The Speedmaster was offered for 5400 Euro including 20 % VAT
Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Ref. 5320G
Such a gorgeous watch must have been criticized by the hardcore Patek Philippe collectors. They said: "How could Thierry Stern dare to do such a retro-watch? That's not Patek Philippe!" Blablabla ... they all ended up buying one. For me one of the coolest timepieces I have seen so far if you take everything under consideration: brand, make, price, calibre, rarity ... Sold for 74.478 Euro including 20 % VAT.

Design-Godfather Ferdinand Alexander Porsche would have been very proud to see such a chronograph. It is the perfect, contemporary interpretation of what he started doing with his first Porsche Design chronographs in the year 1972.

I don't need to explain why the new Rolex Sea-Dweller is listed here. But you should have asked me many, many questions if it would not be mentioned ... Sold (if you get one) for 10.400 Euro including 20 VAT
