Auctions: All Three Philippe Dufour Simplicitys At Auction Beat High Estimates
The two models at Phillips sold for more than $257,000 and $225,000, respectively.
The first Simplicity to sell was the white gold 37mm guilloche model at Christie’s, and that sold for a noteworthy HKD1.98m, or $256,395. This is a solid outcome unquestionably, and a solid record for the time-just watch. However, the record would keep going for only 24 hours.
At Phillips, the 37mm transcended with white polish dial got HKD 2m, or $257,868, simply defeating the Christie’s white gold model. The following parcel, a 34mm white gold model like the very watch Dufour himself regularly wears, sold for HKD 1.75m, or $225,634.
To see such solid outcomes on an advanced watch, and one that isn’t that uncommon all in all – more than 200 have been made – yet has an undeniable measure of feeling and human touch partner with them, is empowering. Additionally, if these were possessed by the first commissioners, their 45,000 CHF in about 10 years has served them well.
