Extraordinary Watches by Patek Philippe
Sotheby’s American auction of significant timepieces will feature pioneering team of 5 pieces commissioned in titanium. The Ref five thousand T Sky Moon Tourbillon led the collection and previously undocumented reference and just known example of Patek Philippe’s coveted Sky Moon Tourbillon in titanium (est. $1/1.5 million*), as well as the legendary one thousand nine hundred and twenty three Officier, the first split-seconds chronograph wristwatch produced by the firm (est. $800,000/1.2 million).
The collection includes additional references by Patek Philippe that have remained classified to collectors, so do the special timepieces incorporating precious materials and shape beyond titanium. Together estimated at more than $ three million, the twelve wristwatches will travel to Geneva this month before returning to Sotheby’s York Avenue galleries for exhibition beginning June. So, this kind of replicas are very rare, even nobody can sure whether the watches have replicas or not.
