Rare Patek Philippe Sets Auction Record

Patek-philippe-ref.-1436-watch The worldwide economic recession was no where to be seen at Antiquorum's "Important Collector's Wristwatches, Pocket Watches, Clocks and Horological Tools" auction, held May 9-10 in Geneva.

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.

  2. I appreciate your honest post here on. As hard as it is to believe, it is possible you overlooked the few things in question. It would appear it has become a little out of hand with a so much of information to manage about. As a experienced person of nearly 15 years, i must say i totally agree with you on.
