Concluding a monumental finish at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, all were in attendance to watch Ferrari’s 499P race car sprint to victory for the first time in 58 years. Of those at the legendary endurance race, NBA All-Star Lebron James was there as the official starter of the centennial race. While his presence at the track was jaw-dropping in itself, Lebron shocked the watch world by wearing one of the most coveted Patek Philippe in history. Standing above the start line waving the race cars off with the French flag, Lebron James was sporting the ultra-exclusive Patek Philippe Nautilus Tiffany & Co. (Ref.5711/1A-018).
The bright Tiffany Blue dial was on display for all to see, instantly recognizable from any distance. Limited to only 170 pieces, Patek Philippe released and offered the highly-desirable Nautilus to celebrities and top Tiffany & Co. clientele. Of the exclusive list of Patek Philippe Nautilus Tiffany & Co., big names include Jay-Z, Leonardo Decaprio, Ed Sheeran, Mark Wahlberg, James Harden, and many more. Originally released with a retail price of $52,635, the Patek Philippe Nautilus Tiffany & Co. now sells for well over $2 million on the secondary market.
