Works by Patek Philippe underscored the diverse selection on offer, characterized by excellence in craftsmanship. The Star Calibre 2000 realised HK$25,300,000 (US$3,281,410) becoming the most valuable watch sold in Asia, and the set of four Reference 5004 with unusual dial and case combinations fetched HK$13,760,000 (US$1,784,672), breaking the world record price for each type of case version. Our 92% sold through rate confirms the strength of the market in Asia for collectible timepieces.”
