At a Hong Kong auction for the sale of Important Modern and Vintage Timepieces, Patek Philippe was a big winner.
The Patek Philippe 3979 was the highest selling watch at the auction. The intense bidding war for not only this timepiece, but all of the Patek Philippe watches at auction “demonstrated global collectors’ passion for Patek Philippe wristwatches.”
The 3979 wound up selling for $468,000. It is a minute repeating watch that features an enamel dial.
The Patek Philippe 5029 and 2438-1 were the second and third highest selling timepieces at the auction.
Once again, we see Patek Philippe showing its international pedigree as the finest of timepieces.
