If you are a collector of vintage Patek Philippe chronographs, then Antiquorum Auctioneers have just the thing your collection needs. Going under the hammer, on March 10th in New York, is a 1946 minute repeating Patek Philippe wristwatch which spots an over sized crown that too from the house of Cartier New York. Originally owned by a well-placed New York businessman, the watch was custom made 34mm diameter with a minimalist design for easy usage. Limited to just five versions in the world, the watch is estimated between $ 300,000 and $ 500,000.
Update – Unique and historically important Patek Philippe Ref.2419 retailed by Cartier Sold for $710,500 at Antiquorum Auction.
