Heritage Auctions offers rare timepieces at Hong Kong sale
November 13, 2018: A highly desirable contemporary Patek Philippe watche is expected to vie for top-lot honours in Heritage Auctions' December 10 Hong Kong Timepieces Auction. Pre-auction estimates indicate the auction could eclipse $1 million.
"This auction represents an extraordinary opportunity to launch collectible timepieces at Heritage Week – Hong Kong," Heritage Auctions Watches & Fine Timepieces Director Jim Wolf said.
The Patek Philippe, Unused Single Sealed, Gold Chronograph With Perpetual Calendar, Moon Phases, Tachometer and 24 Hour Indication (reserve: $100,000) is the last Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Chronograph powered by the legendary Lemania movement, which is visible through the back of the case. The yellow gold version offered in this auction is considered the rarest of this extraordinary reference. A Patek Philippe, Fine and Rare Twenty4 White Gold And Pave Diamond Ladies Wristwatch Circa 2002 (reserve: $55,000) is a dazzling piece with more than 1,400 diamonds with a combined weight of a little more than 8 carats.
Apart from these rare timepieces, a number of rather unique and important pieces like a Bovet à Fleurier, a Rolex, a Daniel Roth "Classique" Diamond & Sapphire White Gold Watch and a Piaget, Protocole XXL, Fine and Very Rare 18k White Gold and Diamond Square Bracelet Watch, circa 2000s will be part of the auction.
