Since 1979, Antiquorum has been holding auctions in Hong Kong and the result of the April 25, 2021 sale, close to HKD 49 million (approx. CHF 5.7 million), confirms its strong position on the Asian continent.
The auction once again crowned the Patek Philippe name with no less than seven of the top ten lots, including two Ref. 5970P-001 that sold for over HKD 1.5 million (lot 124 and 127), a Ref. 5160G for HKD 1,187,500.00 (lot 119) and a Nautilus Ref. 3712/1A-001 for over HKD 1 million (lot 266).
The highlight of the auction was the selling of the platinum Patek Philippe Ref. 5207, for over HKD 10 million, Antiquorum’s highest hammer price in Asia since 2002 and a world record for this reference. A former property of the Sultan of Oman, Qaboos Bin Said (1940-2020), this Ref. 5207 is fitted with nine watch complications and is the only example known to date with a platinum bracelet.

Among the results, it is worth noticing that lot 248, an Omega Ref. 2915-2, was sold for almost three times its low estimate at HKD 1,125,000.00. Bids were also brisk for the two historic watches that were presented: Henri-Ernest Bouvier’s chronometer, made by Paul Distisheim, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Republic of Neuchâtel (lot 137) found a buyer for HKD 337,500 and the pocket Breguet of Louis-Alexandre Berthier (1753-1815), first Prince of Wagram and Prince of Neuchâtel, (lot 138) went to a connoisseur for HKD 300,000, hence twice its high estimate.
