Wow, I can't help but to feel underwhelmed by the free shipping offer. I would really expect a free luxury car instead for the price. By the way,their "add to cart" button actually works for this product. I wonder whether any payment processor would accept such as sum.
By the way, this is not a joke. An identical watch achieved a price of $1.49 million at an auction this week. It seems that this watch is also for sale at other shops on the Internet for up to $1.7M. This rather makes me suspicious since there are only supposed to be a few copies ever made since 2001
There are two models produced each year, one in platinum and one in rose gold. The list price of this watch is already over $1.0M. To order, the customer has to make an appointment with Patek Phillipe in Geneva. At the interview, they will assess whether you are a suitable owner of such an exquisite watch or not. Once they have deemed you suitable and have accepted your order, it takes another 4-5 years for the watch to be delivered.
Of course, most extremely wealthy people cannot wait this long, and are prepared to pay a premium to have the watch immediately. The same goes for very rare models of Ferrari and Lamboghini. Therefore if you have the money and are willing to wait, these are sure money making bets.
I've never bought jewelry online-but I've sold some. The customers buying high end jewelry are almost always the easiest to work with. It's the ones who've spent hours comparing prices to save $20 on a $200 item that cause headaches. In regards to this particular item, the reason it seems widely available online is probably the result of the same watch being for sale from multiple places. That happens with many hard to find items-rare watches, cars, diamonds, etc.
