Today, November 11, 2013, another historical day is setting records in Geneva at the Christie's Important Watches Auction. This time the auction comprising 406 lots overall, is led by an exceptionally rare 18K pink gold Patek Philippe perpetual calendar chronograph with moon phases, ref. 2499, manufactured in 1951 and encased in 1957 with an original estimate between $1,101,301-1,651,951 USD, that has fetched the incredible amount of $2,186,081 —inclusive of buyer's premium.
The Important Watches auction is still in progress and during intermission at this time. The auction will resume at 3pm —Geneva time— for the lots 194-406. We will be reporting the results upon completion of the auction as there are other very rare and important timepieces being auctioned today. Stay tuned!
