Last week’s auction house Antiquorum March auction ended their recent “important modern and antique timepieces” in Geneva. When the auction was completed, 64,579,37 Swiss francs were completed. In 564, 83% of watch auctions were sold. Below are a few prominent auctions.
The most exciting auctions, at least the private collection of Antiquorum, 33 erotic watches. The collection itself sold for 719,200 Swiss francs, which was twice the official estimate. “Music Festival is like illusion” (many 187) (here seepic NSFW) is a music table in addition to the erotic variety, offering two automaton scenes. It was built by Colonel Henry of Geneva in about 1810. I don’t know if he is an ancestor of Edmund Carr (the reputation of Valjoux in 7750)? This prime erotic timer is estimated to be between 70,000 and 900,000 Swiss francs and sells Swiss francs at 200,500! Obviously the price/value of this variety of watches There are traditional products that exist on their own scale. Perhaps ironically, many watches in this collection are the Antiquorum auctions for the past 15 years.
The culmination of my auction is Cheap Patek Philippe Replica Watches Ref.3939 HP (564+). Antiquorum claims that this particular model (see thepic) can only be 5 times the auction. After the characteristics of this holy grail of Patek Philippe Advertising, we look at the world’s desires: a minute of the Toulon Rotating Agency, Enamel Breguet Dial, Platinum case, I think the most impressive, one-minute repeater. I certainly don’t want to reduce the effort and art to enter a Taurangan rotating body… but I feel the exclusivity of the complications, and to some extent my personal interest, while to the north, each brand fossil seems to offer one now.
The various forms of repeaters are a more interesting complication, and few houses offer not to mention mastering them. In addition to mechanical art, designers and engineers must conquer the voice of the world. Repeaters remain more rare and exclusive, and I believe it’s harder to master. The official estimate for this piece (the aforementioned Fake Patek Philippe Watches Ref.3939 HP) is 400,000 – 50,000 CHF. With an estimate of 428,500 Swiss francs. Now I think the history of the auction house is even interesting, “They estimate. Earlier auction results broke down and it is good news. Not at the last impression hammer price I was a bit disappointed, did not go. This is a wonderful and rare The example is from one of the best houses.
Another project that caught my eye was Patek Philippe Replica Watches Ref. 2524/1 (543 more) (see thepic). Starting in 1954, at 18k gold, and only 8 examples. The estimated 300,000 – 400000 Swiss francs is solid and will eventually look at 374,500 Swiss francs. Although not platinum, the buyer is clearly the only eight that is impressively exclusive.
For reference, just a few weeks ago, rarePatek quoted 2419 (also a transponder) estimated to be as high as $500,000, priced at $710,500. This quote is exclusive in 2419 and even exceeds Patek Philippe Replica at this auction, the price gap is understandable.
In the end, this auction shows that Swiss Patek Philippe Watches and truly rare or unique watches hold value, even in a tough economic situation. More rarely, the relative value of the auction is greater. The rest of 2011 will definitely be an interesting auction. With the economic recovery, I hope that the auction results will be the leading or backward indicators?
