“Bidders from 25 countries competed fiercely in the sale room, on the phone and online for the world’s finest timepieces. From watches with no reserve to the most valuable timepieces from highly coveted watch manufacturers, this sale demonstrates the width and depth of collecting interest from around the world. The seven distinctive Opus limited edition wristwatches by Harry Winston attracted competitive bidding, with 100% sold, achieving over HK$9mln and exceeding pre-sale expectations. Blue-chip brand Patek Philippe continues to appeal to connoisseurs, with both the rare pink gold black dial ref. 5074 as well as the platinum and sapphire-set ref. 5971 achieving top lot status,” said Frederic Watrelot, Head of Christie’s Asia Watch Department.
