Record breaking at Patek Philippe Auctions

Tags: Antiquorum, Christie's, Henry Graves Jr. Supercomplication, Patek Philippe, Sotheby's

Antiquorum, Christies' and Sotheby's sold for almost 100 millions swiss francs during the last auctions dedicated to watches. One record was broken as the "Henry Graves" Supercomplication was sold for 23'237'000 swiss francs.

Generally, the sales matches the expectations of the auction houses. Many customers and professionals moved to Geneva on this occasion to meet and trade also out of the sales rooms. And of course Patek Philippe and Rolex continue to top the table. Specific and rare models confirmed to be also investments in very special market that continues to grow.

    Interesting watch but what could you do with it? It's too big to wear,you can't really leave it lying about in the house...all you can really do with it is to lock it away in a safe or bank vault until it's time to sell it on again.

    Patek makes beautiful and timeless, time pieces....so to speak. The represent wearable, yet practical, artwork. That's why a watch of this calibre is such a great investment. Plus.... they are very ,very shiny :)*
