Watch collectors and connoisseurs are eagerly waiting for Antiquorum’s 35th-anniversary sale, which is slated to be held on the 14th and 15th of November in Geneva. The anniversary sale is expected to feature some of the most exquisite and exceptional timepieces. The highlight of this auction is the Patek Philippe Calibre 89 timepiece from the Matsuda Collection, the world’s most complicated timepiece with 33 complications! Only four unique models of the Calibre 89 were ever produced, one each in yellow, pink, and white gold and one in platinum. The exclusive timepiece has rarely been seen at an auction, making this the perfect opportunity for watch collectors to cast their bid for this complicated watch. Antiquorum previously sold the present Calibre 89 in yellow gold in their April 9, 1989 sale of “The Art of Patek Philippe” to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Patek Philippe. The complicated timepiece is estimated to fetch a price between 4,500,000 – 5,500,000 CHF ($4,422,430-$ 5,405,574).
Besides this, some of the other Patek Phillipe timepieces to be featured in this auction include a limited edition “Officier Répétitions Minutes,” Ref. 5029 watches (which is estimated to fetch between 350,000 – 450,000 CHF ($343,990-$442,265)), a rare 18k yellow gold Patek Philippe Ref. 1436 watch retailed by Tiffany (estimated to fetch between 180,000 – 220,000 CHF ($176,885-$216,190)), as well as the Richard Mille “Tourbillon RM0003” two-time zone watch.
