We knew the bids were going to be high for the ultra rare steel Patek Philippe Ref. 1518 during the latest important watch auction held by Phillips Bacs & Russo and we were for sure not disappointed!

This video report simply let's you relive this moment as if you were in the room with us as we witnessed the fight between two tenacious collectors; one of them walking away with this incredible timepiece for a staggering 9.6 Million Swiss Francs (plus commission!!!).

    That price doesn't make any sense to me. Perhaps if you're a billionaire and have an exquisite Patek collection and looking for the rarest pieces for your collection it makes sense.

    Man! Would have been much better if you'd kept the winner a secret until the end of the video. Great content though!

    Applauding for an obscene amount of money for a watch which will end up in a safe until another rich idiot spends more, Is this really what horology has sunk to? I see nothing in this auction that celebrates horology just the celebration of people with far too much money.

    Wow... that's a lot of money!

    Holy momma! Thanks a million Marc. After handling the Patek 5016 at Only Watch 2015 and seeing it go for over 7 million Swiss Francs I literally started eating my hat. And now...... I almost choked on a frankfurter (well, it's called a banger in Britain). Lol! Seriously! Almost had a coronary!
