It is a good thing to be the billionaire owner of some of the world’s most luxurious brands, no doubt. Being one of the wealthiest men globally and the billionaire owner of LVMH, Bernard Arnault is flexing without apology.
Until now, it was assumed that you could only find the Tiffany Blue Patek Philippe dials on the 170 limited edition 5711 watches. This is because these watches were created to celebrate the 170th anniversary of the collaboration between Tiffany & Co. and Patek Philippe. However, Bernard Arnault disproved that assumption when Frederic Arnault, his son and TAG Heuer CEO, posted on Instagram.
In the picture of both of them playing chess, Frederic is spotted wearing a TAG Heuer Carrera. However, his father was spotted wearing the easily recognizable unique Tiffany Blue Patek Philippe 5700. A closer look at the watch reveals the same black and white hour markers and hands used in the 5711 timepieces. However, this iconic Tiffany Blue dial had some unique additions - it had a moonphase window and black perpetual calendar sub-dial lettering.
The Tiffany Blue 5711 models typically retail at $52,635, with one selling at a charity auction for $6.5 million. However, putting a price on a unique Tiffany Blue 5740 timepiece is impossible.
