So a quick addition learns that Antiquorum (the host of the auction) is hoping to fetch a total amount of between € 2.826.000,= and € 4.522.00,=.

However except for the Patek Philippe 3939 the overall auction results were very moderate to low though. Only a few watches brought more than the maximum estimate, and quite some didn’t even reach the minimum estimate by far.

So the total auction result ended at € 4.543.500,= – just over the maximum estimate ans solely reached by the Patek Philipp. All prices mentioned are without buyers premium and/or taxes, which I’m not sure if they apply to this auction.

Richard Mille RM 027 Rafael Nadal Only Watch 2011

Of course all eyes were on the stainless steel Patek Philippe which fetched the highest price by far, however my personal favorites, having seen the watches in real two times now and tried some on my wrist, were the De Bethune DB 25 (for it’s extremely beauty and technical craftsmanship), the Richard Mille RM 027 (for it’s unbelievable light weight), the MB&F HM 4 Flying Panda (because it’s around the bend) and the Vacheron Constantin Metiers d’Art (for it’s beautiful dial).

    Interesting results Gerard.
    Some amazed me really, like the Bovet and the Chaumet.
    Lucky winners. Euro 4500.- is a steal for the Chaumet.
    Franck Muller did well, since the watch, auctioned now, is not that different from his Crazy Hours collection.

  2. […] Of course there where more results; 40 unique watches where auctioned, although the hammer prize was sometimes kind of disappointing. We feel though that some estimates were maybe kind of ‘optimistic’ to say the least. All estimates and and winning bids can be seen at Gerard’s blog In2watches. […]
