This May, our Rare Watches auction brings together 221 exceptional timepieces spanning from 1875 to 2017, with examples from three important private collections. An eclectic group of 11 Patek Philippe watches carries the sale’s top lot, the ‘Grand Complication’ ref. 5208P – the most complicated wristwatches ever made and the second example to ever come to auction.
Elsewhere, a Daytona ‘Paul Newman’ ref. 6264 with original guarantee from a private Italian collection will be on offer alongside possibly the most recognisable wristwatch by Patek Philippe, the Nautilus ref. 5980/1400G-010 – the first and so far, only example to appear at public auction.
