A collection from the renowned collector, Todd Tyra
To coincide with Furman’s photography, Patina Gallery presents a highly coveted collection of rare Rolex watches provided by Todd Tyra, an avid Santa Fe collector of the venerate timepieces. Esteemed in both luxury and reliability, these revered brands are staples in mechanical intellect and originality.
“Rolexes and luxury cars offer people the opportunity to express their style and success in a great variety of ways, while also investing in famed history and quality”
Tyra’s admiration for the artistic and influential impact behind the Rolex plus Furman’s respect for the craftsmanship and cultural relevance behind the Porsche make a brilliant partnership for this exhibition.
This past October, Paul Newman’s famed Daytona Rolex (Paul Newman’s Paul Newman) sold for a record-breaking $17.8 Million in auction at Phillips, New York. This is a true testament to the admiration people attribute to these trusted brands all over the world. (Wolf, Cam. “Paul Newman's Rolex Daytona Just Sold for $17.8 Million.” GQ, 27 Oct. 2017)
