Patek Philippe wristwatch to auction on October 6
A rare Patek Philippe wristwatch is to cross the block at Sotheby’s Hong Kong on October 6.
The 1968 yellow gold double crown world time wristwatch with 24 hour indication is expected to make around $510,000-710,000.
Sharon Chan, head of watches at Sotheby’s Asia, comments: “Rare references of Patek Philippe vintage watches are more commonly seen in European salerooms and this season we are pleased to present an extremely uncommon Patek Philippe world time wristwatch made in 1968.
“A comparable pocket watch made in 1951 sold at four times its estimate at Sotheby’s New York in June 2015 and we expect keen competition for this upcoming example.
“Among other highlights are a possibly unique full diamond-set Cartier ‘Panther’ bangle watch and ingenious works of independent brands.”
