Eric Clapton's (Potentially) Unique Patek Philippe 5004P
Lot 169: Patek Philippe platinum reference 5004, previously in the assortment of Sir Eric Clapton.
In most cases, the watch makes the gatherer. In any case, not when the watch was once essential for the Eric Clapton assortment. The most notable VIP gatherer has possessed probably the best Patek Phillipe and Rolex watches on the lookout, including this platinum reference 5004 with an uncommon blue tachymeter dial. Given the impact Clapton has had on numerous gatherers, they should jump at the opportunity to add one that has gone through the greater part of its days on his wrist.

A 1950s Patek Philippe Dual-Crown Wold-Timer In Pink Gold (Reference 2523)
Lot 373: Patek Philippe two-crown World Timer reference 2523/1 in pink gold.
Here’s a natural reference. At the point when you consider what a limited number of two-crown world clocks Louis Cottier made for Patek Phillipe, it’s fairly mind blowing to be seeing two models available to be purchased in the exact month. Fourteen days prior, Christie’s sold a yellow gold model (reference 2523/1) for CHF 1,121,000 . This time, it’s Phillips’ turn, with a perhaps remarkable pink-gold model, which turns out to be the case material supported by the Southeast Asian market. The gauge is HK $12,000,000 to $20,000,000.

The most desired never-ending schedule chronograph of the 21st century, reference 2499 established its standing at the exceptionally top with another extremely solid presentation in Geneva . However, that model was a first arrangement, in yellow gold. The third arrangement – made roughly from 1960 through 1978 – is all the more promptly accessible, and consequently less alluring (authorities additionally will in general incline toward the rectangular chrono pushers of the first model to the mushroom ones of the second and third arrangement). But when it’s in pink gold. Just six models were at any point made – making it the most extraordinary pink-gold models across some other arrangement – and this one is accepted to be novel among them on the grounds that the dial gap at 6’clock is level. It ought to likewise be said the combination of pink gold for the case and ivory for the dial is staggeringly appealing, maybe more along these lines, as I would see it, at that point with a gold case. Will it be sufficient to beat a first arrangement? Phillips thinks along these lines, with a gauge of HK $9,000,000 to $18,000,000. Subtleties here .
Lot 170: Unique Patek Philippe Skeleton reference 5180.
Patek Philippe rarely makes skeletonized pieces, and even less titanium cases. Indeed, this reference 5180 is a pièce special made in 2009 for the Children Action good cause. The watch raised CHF 520,000 when it was initially sold, and Phillips trusts it could pound in for significantly more this time around. The watch is introduced in nearly NOS condition, and comes with the first testament. The gauge is HK $2,700,000 to $4,000,000. Subtleties here .
Pink Gold Pisa Edition Patek Philippe Calatrava
Lot 377: Patek Philippe restricted release for Pisa Orologeria.
The enormous news out of Geneva was the unimaginable presentation of uncomplicated Patek Phillipe watches, especially those with Breguet numerals. Following that rationale, this uncommon pink-gold restricted release with clear focus seconds ought to pull in revenue, despite the fact that it is actually a cutting edge PP – the watch was made in 2008 to commemorate the launch of the Patek Phillipe store in Milan, Italy. Some would incline toward the watch without the date; think of me as one of them. In any case, Phillips appear to be sure it will discover a purchaser in the HK $300,000 to $500,000 territory.
