Rare Patek Philippe ‘World Time’ Sells for $1.25 Million

Earlier in the month we reported on Antiquorum's "Important Modern & Vintage Timepieces" that promised some extraordinary timepieces. 

The top sale at the auction was the Patek Philippe Ref. 2523 "World Time" (lot 469) featured in the photo above. Made in 1953, this extremely rare 18K men's wristwatch with guilloche dial sold for an impressive 1,190,500 CHF (approximately $1.25 MM USD). 

"Today's remarkable result for the Patek Philippe World Time with guilloche dial is clear confirmation that the market is increasingly focused on pieces of the highest quality produced by the world's most respected and recognized brands," said Julien Schaerer, Managing Director of Antiquorum Geneva in a press release.
