NFT time travel watch

What?! I mean ... what the hell is going on?! 'What's this, boss?' PR email, Voice. Some crazy nuts have invented a watch you can travel into the future with. 'Oh. / What about the past?' I don't know about the past.

But let's found out all about it!!!

Patek Philippe 'Nautilus' Timepiece Makes Groundbreaking History With First-Ever NFT.

Time travel into the future with Patek Philippe through a resplendent display of the rare and highly sought after 'Nautilus' and experience the watch like never before...

Er ... 'I'm none the wiser, me.' Join the club!

Anyway ...

The luxury watchmaking brand, Patek Philippe, renowned for its rare craftsmanship, is being thrust into the digital world with the first ever NFT of a watch from the brand. The rare and now discontinued 'Nautilus' time piece is now embodied in an NFT, created by a private owner of the watch in the Middle East and will be auctioned off on the SM-ART platform over a 3-day period from mid November. The SM-ART platform itself is making history - a first of its kind, non-fungible token (NFT) and non-fungible asset (NFA) platform, which focuses on preserving and reinvigorating high-value collectibles by bringing them forward into the digital public domain, making them accessible to new generations with the hope of inspiring tomorrow's burgeoning artists.

Yeah, yeah. Christ. Maybe we'll get some sense out of Danny. 'Don't count on it!' Well, let's give him a chance.


"When we were approached by the owner to help him create an NFT for his Nautilus watch, we jumped at the opportunity," says Danny Sangha, co-founder of SM-ART. "Our entire mission for this platform is to bring fine art, rare collectibles and objets d'art back into the world again. So many beautiful pieces sit in vaults hidden away from pubic view - never seen and never appreciated. We wanted to discover a way to breathe life back into these works of art through a new medium. NFT's are a way to do that, a way for people to be able to enjoy and own these pieces through a digital construct."

Well ... obviously, Danny is of no use to us.


"SM-ART has proven that NFT's have a place in the luxury world and we are especially proud that we're pioneers in this new digital field," says Robina Latham, co-founder of SM-ART. "It's incredibly important to us that each NFT is carefully curated, selected and verified by our experts. We work with private collectors, artists, museums and galleries to ensure these NFT's are based on the real artworks or a new original piece is conceived by the artists themselves. This NFT of the Patek Philippe 'Nautilus' is a case in point - the response we've received so far has been overwhelming and we are excited to see this NFT make history at auction."

Er ... 'Just leave it, boss. These people live in a world of their own.' Yeah, maybe. Yeah, I suppose you're right.

No! Let's try Danny again. 'It's your funeral.' I want to give Danny another chance. 'His mechanism's gone.' Shut up!


"The NFT of the Patek Philippe 'Nautilus' is as groundbreaking and unconventional as the watch was in its time and we wanted to pay homage to that," says Danny Sangha. "We were very cognisant of the craftsmanship that went into it and have taken the same care with the NFT development. While there are very brief sneak peaks of the NFT on our website, the full NFT won't be revealed until the day of auction. We will be announcing the auction dates soon on our social media channels and websites, but it will be around mid-November. It's an incredible investment opportunity for someone and the NFT will only continue to appreciate in value along side the value of the watch itself."



Anything else?

Music? I mean ... this is a music blog, isn't it? Should I write about my music? 'Yeah, go on!'

Okay, okay. Danny, I'm going to give you one more chance to redeem yourself. 'Oh God!' Shut up, Voice!

Danny, do you have anything else besides this NFT watch?

"My partner's got a really good idea for making dolls."

This sounds interesting! Tell us more.

"Her sister gave her the idea. She got a doll last Christmas what pisses itself. Then you gotta change its drawers for it. It's horrible really, but they like that, the little girls. So we're gonna make one that shits itself as well."

Shits itself?!

"Robina's an expert. She's building the prototype now."

Okay. Well, thank you, Danny.

'I told you, boss!'

Yes, you told me, Voice.
