Patek Philippe is a name that commands respect. Any offering from this luxury watchmaker is a must-have masterpiece. And if you are a Patek Philippe collector, you definitely can’t miss out on the exquisite wooden cabinet. Not just any cabinet, it is an original watchmakers chest from the late 1800’s that was once used by Patek Philippe. The exquisite tool cabinet is all set to go under the hammer at the Antiquorum Geneva sale where it is expected to fetch between $6500 and $8500. Made of real wood, this beautiful chest boasts of 51 individual drawers each with a hinged top. Standing tall on stile feet, this chest is also flat sided. A piece that depicts Patek Philippe’s taste for luxury and craftsmanship, it is one-of-a-kind.
Said to be in excellent condition, this antique piece measures 73 x 35 x 40 cm in size. I won’t be surprised if this wooden chest fetches more than its expected price at the sale.
