Watch auction

Yesterday, Antiquorum had their ‘Timless Beauty’ acution and it seemed to be a good one for them. You can read all about it in their report, click here (you’ll need Acrobat Read for this).

A Patek Philippe Calatrava, only 3 pieces made, in 1961 fetched the most… an amazing amount of 1,413,000 USD!!
