Antiquorum’s auction in Hong Kong saw this stunning and rare Patek Philippe timepiece auctioned off to the highest bidder.
The Annual Calendar Chronograph (ref.5961P) is made in platinum and has been set with 36 baguette cut sapphires to the bezel. The black dial has applied baguette sapphire indexes, featuring the date and power reserve indication at 12 0’clock.
The watch was expected to sell for between 600,000 – 800,000 Hong Kong Dollars which is approximately £45,000 to £61,000.
It has an aperture at 10 0’clock for the month and an aperture at 2 0’clock for the day of the week. The aperture at 6 0’clock combines a 30/60 minute recorder and 12 hour recorder.
This beautiful timepiece also features day/night indication, flyback chronograph and an exhibition caseback with a sapphire glass through which you can view the movement.
There is a single diamond set between the lugs at 6 0’clock and the Patek Philippe platinum deployant clasp features 22 baguette cut sapphires.
This fine watch ended up selling for 129,000,000 Hong Kong Dollars, which is approximately £9,880,000, much higher than the original estimate.
