The highlight was sale of a vintage Patek Philippe's Ref. 1436 (see photo)--a stainless steel split-seconds chronograph, and one of only two such timepieces known to exist today. The very rare timepiece, produced in 1945, set a world record price for a steel watch by fetching $1,126,932.
Overall, Antiquorum's auction featured 331 lots. Of these, 80 percent were sold, netting a total of $5.9 million.
