BLACK BAY BRONZE ONE, UNBELIEVABLE AMOUNT
Posted on April 18 2018
Some say it doesn’t come as a huge surprise - In 2015, a Black Bay One was also sold an auction by Only Watch for 375,000 Swiss Francs (roughly 550,000 SGD), more than 120 times its estimate price. We still find it astonishing every time we think about it.
The calibre used in this unique piece is similar to the one used in Black Bay Bronze, the MT5601. The only difference is the adoption of the left hand drive on the calibre.
