Auctions Christie's Brings The Loot At May's Geneva Rare Watches Auction

Auctions Christie’s Brings The Loot At May’s Geneva Rare Watches Auction

Those watching out for my byline (and maybe my Instagram ) will realize that I have become fairly fixated on the sheer fun and swagger of gold watches, particularly those in yellow gold and of the vintage influence. While my odds of proprietorship could be addressed by a number quickly moving toward nothing (there are such countless cameras I’m yet to possess), whenever allowed to see a portion of the feature parcels for Christie’s upcoming Geneva Rare Watches Auction, you realize I couldn’t resist the opportunity to assemble a rundown of my #1 gold alternatives. From pocket watches given new life to two-tone numbers with pop provenance and some strong gold from the Crown, these are only a couple picks from a great contribution scheduled to hit the square later this month. 

Rolex Oyster Chronograph Ref. 3525 – Once Part Of The Andy Warhol Collection

Dating back to 1943, this flawless 35mm steel chronograph has a two-tone treatment in pink gold for the crown, bezel, focus joins, and the side components of its bolted stretch arm band. Initially claimed by pop workmanship symbol Andy Warhol, this ref. 3525 is a perfect illustration of an extraordinarily collectible pre-Daytona chronograph with a stunning silver-tone dial and rose gold accents. Pre-closeout gauges put this piece of chronographic workmanship at a cool $195,000-$300,000.

Vacheron Constantin Five Minute Repeating Single Button Chronograph (That Used To Be A Pocket Watch!)

Two lifetimes of history cased in 37.5mm of 18k yellow gold, this beautiful Vacheron has a heart that traces all the way back to 1899, when the development was initially introduced in a pocket watch. Quick forward to 1956 when Vacheron re-cased a similar development in a period dress watch with a beautiful two-tone dial (with a salmon place, no less). Obviously exceptional, the development being referred to is Vacheron Constantin’s RA 14, making conceivable a repeater slide on the left case flank and a monopusher chronograph pusher fitted into the crown at three. With supporting desk work from Vacheron, this inconspicuous however complex piece conveys a gauge of $195,000 – $400,000.

Patek Philippe Ref. 2499 Perpetual Calendar Chronograph

One of my number one Patek Philippe chronographs, this third arrangement 2499 dates to 1977 and it’s simply head-shakingly great. At 37.6mm wide in 18k yellow gold, this hand-wound chronograph additionally flaunts a full unending schedule and moon stage. Initially brought into the world in 1950, the 2499 developed across four arrangement, with the third arrangement being recognizable for its stick markers, siphon pushers, and the absence of a tachymeter scale. With a gauge of $490,000 to $790,000, this 2499 may not be just about as uncommon as a portion of its kin, yet it’s as yet a strikingly unique watch.

Rolex Daytona Paul Newman Ref. 6241 In 14k Yellow Gold

Did you figure I’d do this rundown without a gold Paul Newman Daytona on a bolted extending arm band? Disgrace. While I’m not for the most part a chronograph fellow, I do adore an early Daytona and none more so than those in strong gold. This super cool model is a reference 6241 that traces all the way back to 1969 and has a 37.5mm case and a wristband that guarantees close to interminable grin esteem. While this model had its wristband un-stuck (liable to keep non-landowners such as myself from giving it a shot), I have had the joy of wearing a vintage gold Daytona, and for me they are an outright chalice. I know it’s little in excess of a banality, yet I love this watch and decide to disregard its $350,000 to $540,000 estimate.

Patek Philippe Pocket Watch Once Owned By Jean-Adrien Philippe (Co-organizer Of The Brand)

Talk about provenance, this pocket watch traces all the way back to 1888 and was once possessed by Jean-Adrien Philippe, otherwise known as the “Philippe” in Patek Philippe. At 50mm wide in 18k pink gold, this exemplary looking pocket watch sports a keyless switch and a complex two-train miscreant focus seconds complication. With an unpredictable “JAP” etching on the external case back, the underlying pivoted cover opens to show an internal case back marked “Jean Adrien Philippe, 5 Janvier 1894.” If you ask pleasantly, somebody might open up the inward case back, offering a perspective on the Cal 19 hand-twisted development inside. This piece of horological history has a pre-sell off gauge of $50,000 to $100,000.

Rolex Perpetual 'Padellone' Ref. 8171

It’s difficult to say with this bartering, however I may have saved my #1 part for last. Simply take a gander at it. This is a 1950 Rolex ref. 8171 triple schedule with moonphase. It’s 38mm wide with a paper-like white dial and a sub-seconds register over an exquisite moon stage show. Fitted to this period-right high tan Rolex cowhide tie, it simply calls to me. On wrist, this 8171 is an extremely exceptional blend of easygoing, exquisite, and altogether preposterous. Flawlessly proportioned and altogether serene, this 8171 is the encapsulation of actually grandpa for me “beguile.” Nothing this cool is modest, and this 8171 conveys a gauge of $250,000 to $540,000.
