A vintage pink gold Patek Philippe keyless pocket watch to go under the hammer

Antiquorum Auctioneers will soon put more exquisite pieces of vintage watches in the 13th edition of the “Important Modern & Vintage Timepieces” conducted at The Mandarin Oriental in Geneva. The show’s highlight that aims to put 603 exceptional modern and vintage timepieces under the hammer will be a rediscovered Patek Philippe set in 18-carat pink gold. Originally sold to Monsieur E. Hoesch, Villa Barbaia, Mergellina, Naples, in 1894, the keyless pocket watch with perpetual calendar, chronograph, moon phases, and the lunar calendar was sold at 3750 Swiss Francs ($ 4,250).

Under the hammer, along with the original certificate of origin and Patek Philippe sales receipt, the timepiece is touted to fetch between SFR 200,000 ($226,700) and SFR 300,000 ($340,160).
