Important Modern & Vintage Timepieces Auction Results by Antiquorum

Antiquorum had a wonderful auction last Saturday in Geneva, there were a lot of interesting Rolex Daytona for sale as well as some very rare timepieces from Patek Philippe etc…

The auction attracted a very big international audience, despite the strong presence of the Asian market – one third of the total bidders, the biggest collectors winning the most important timepieces were Europeans. Several lots marked the day, like the breathtaking Skymoon Tourbillon Patek Philippe with Ref. 5002 [Lot 200], which was sold brand new from the original owner for CHF 1’049’000. The whole auction sale registered a total amount of CHF 9,985,870, with almost 20 lots selling for over CHF100’000…

We are happy to share with you the top lots of last auction, we are sure you will love them as much as we do!

Antiquorum will be coming together with Monaco Legend on the 17-18-19 July 2018, for a very special sale. It will not only include high end jewels and timepieces, but also for the first time globally a combined sale of cars and watches.
