Watch collector’s 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 which is the world’s most complicated timepiece with a total of 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. The present Calibre 89 in yellow gold was previously sold by Antiquorum 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 watch (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.
