Patek Philippe Watch Sold for Millions at Auction

Sell-My-Patek-PhilippeSan Diego watch enthusiasts will be glad to hear that rare timepieces continue to command top prices on the international market. A Patek Philippe perpetual calendar chronograph wristwatch went for nearly 6.26 million Swiss francs ($5.86 million) at a recent Christie’s auction. It was sold to a Swiss private museum and set a record for the highest price paid for a yellow gold watch sold at auction, according to Christie’s.

The 1943-44 watch features an avant-garde case design and was a forerunner for future generations of complicated wristwatches. It was sold as part of a 20-piece collection put up by an anonymous seller.

“I started buying watches in the 1970s, at a time when these amazing objects appealed to very few collectors and even fewer scholars were exploring this charming field. In my opinion, wristwatches are the most beautiful wearable item created in the 20th century,” Christie’s quoted the anonymous seller as saying.

Aurel Bacs, international co-head of Christie’s watch department, called it the “Mona Lisa of all watches.”

“European bidders were fiercely challenged by international collectors, especially buyers from China,” he said of the sale.

The name of the museum wasn’t revealed, but Geneva is home to a Patek Philippe museum, which contains the best pieces made by the independent watchmaker. The entire collection netted 16 million Swiss francs, making it the most expensive private collection of watches ever sold.
