Lot 30: Patek Philippe 130; sold for CHF 725,000.
One wristwatch got everyone’s attention however. It was the perfect example of the deal, and it didn’t baffle in that job. Be that as it may, it actually figured out how to shock us. Indeed, a perceptible wheeze could be heard in the closeout room when a popular authority (one furnished with the #1 oar, properly) broke the CHF 2 million imprint to outbid an online gatherer for the uncommon reference 4113 Split Seconds chronograph (eventual outcome: CHF 2,405,000). The last time it was introduced in a sale, the watch pounded in at $1,161,436. That was just three years prior.
Lot 56: Rolex Antimagnetique reference 4113; sold for CHF 2,405,000.
Another defining moment was the offer of Lot 31. Sold for CHF 1,985,000, the shocking “Paul Newman Oyster Sotto” with a homogeneous “Chocolate” earthy colored dial was distinguished by John Goldberger as one the best watches in Start Stop Reset closeout. Somebody surely concurred with him.
Lot 16: Rolex Oyster Cosmograph Daytona 6263; sold for CHF 137,000.
If the closeout will be associated with those two outstanding outcomes, it was additionally characterized by the achievement of the more modest, more reasonable parts. The deal affirmed a couple of things around evening time. To begin with, that authorities, prepared or new to the sale market, are available to watches that don’t have the words “Rolex” or “Patek Philippe” on their dials.
Lot 11: Tiffany and Co. Antimagnetic; sold for CHF 32,500.
Notable models incorporate the Tiffany & Co. Antimagnetic, which sold for more than twofold its high gauge (CHF 32,500) and the glorious curiously large Universal 22’560 with a Valjoux 55 development (CHF 197,000). (Note, all outcomes incorporate the commission, or purchaser’s exceptional, charged by Phillips.)
Lot 64: Universal 22’560; sold for CHF 197,000.
Secondly, we see that a more youthful age of authorities keeps on making its essence felt. As indicated by a few Phillips specialists I talked with this evening, the deal pulled in offers from new and more youthful gatherers who were quick to purchase their first sale piece (I couldn’t say whether these were winning offers however).
Lot 75: Patek Philippe “Anse a Ragno”; sold for CHF 677,000.
There were a couple of parcels that performed under what many expected, however I absolutely wouldn’t depict as “frustrating” a great deal sold for the greater part 1,000,000 dollars. Be that as it may, the Patek Philippe “Anse a Ragno” had sustained fantasies about seeing another seven-figure watch, and it missed the mark at CHF677,000. With everything taken into account, nonetheless, around evening time was an immense achievement. It would be obviously false to say the room was not tense before the beginning of the
closeout. Phillips realized they were facing a quite huge challenge. Maybe
indeed, even an epic bet. Be that as it may, it paid off – to the tune of CHF 16.5 million.
Lot 47: Tudor Oysterdate “Monte Carlo” 7031/0; sold for CHF 33,750.
