'Hasta la Vista, baby...' - Schwarzenegger's timepiece will be back for $350,000

Arnie's pink gold Audemars Piguet Grande Complication wristwatch is up for sale in New York

Antiquorum is looking forward to its June 8th sale of "Important Modern & Vintage Timepieces" at their US headquarters in New York City, and so are we.

Following the sale of a unique Patek Philippe minute-repeater earlier this year, not to mention a $230,000 Breguet clock, Antiquorum continues to offer exceptional and unique watchesfrom the world's most important manufactures.

In the June auction Antiquorum will offer two unique watches, an Audemars Piguet Grande Complication and a Vacheron Constantin platinum minute-repeating perpetual calendar wristwatch. Pre-sale previews will be held in Los Angeles, Singapore, Shanghai, Hong Kong and New York.

The highlight of the sale is the Audemars Piguet Piece Unique made for the company's 125th anniversary in 2000 with reverse engraved with Arnold Schwarzenegger's signature.

Made especially for the inaugural 'Time to Give' charity auction co-hosted by Arnold Schwarzenegger and Muhammad Ali, thewatch is a large minute-repeating, titanium and 18K pink gold wristwatch featuring a round button split-seconds chronograph and perpetual calendar with moon phases.

It bears an estimate of $250,000-350,000. Schwarzeneggar has long been a fan of fine timepieces. No doubt his current presence in the news will add interest to the piece, which in any case will make strong alternative investment.

Another extraordinary Audemars Piguet, the"Millenary Maserati Anniversary MC12 Tourbillon and Chronograph"was made in 2006 in a limited edition of 150 pieces, to commemorate the success of the Maserati MC12 in the 2005 FIA GT Manufacturers' Cup.

This very rare platinum wristwatch with twin white gold and palladium alloy barrels, black carbon movement with blue anodized aluminum bridges, and 10-day power reserve also features a visible one-minute tourbillon regulator, oval-button chronograph, register and tachometer, and is listed at $140,000-$160,000.
