Antiquorum Auctioneers will soon put more exquisite pieced of vintage watches in the 13th edition of the “Important Modern & Vintage Timepieces” that will be conducted at The Mandarin Oriental in Geneva.
The highlight of the show that aims to put 603 exceptional modern and vintage timepieces under the hammer will be a rediscovered Patek Philippe? set in 18-carat pink gold. Originally sold to Monsieur E. Hoesch, Villa Barbaia, Mergellina, Naples, in 1894 the keyless pocket watch with perpetual calendar, chronograph, moon phases, and lunar calendar was sold at $ 4,250.
Under the hammer along with the original certificate of origin and Patek Philippe sales receipt, the timepiece is touted to fetch between $226,700 and $340,160.
