Auctions Double Signed Patek Philippe Ref. 2523 Sells For HKD 70,175,000
Earlier today in Hong Kong, the sledge fell on probably the greatest parcel of the fall sell off season , a twofold marked pink gold Patek Philippe ref. 2523 with a blue finish dial. Starting today, it’s perhaps the most costly watches to sell anywhere on the planet, and the most costly watch to be sold in Asia. This record is in spite of the way that it missed the mark concerning its high gauge of HKD 111,000,000, with its selling cost of HKD 70,175,00 likening to $8,967,380.
Made in 1953 and sold by the Milanese retailer Gobbi, this watch is an incredibly uncommon illustration of the Patek Philippe ref. 2523 double crown in pink gold, one of two known to have been made with a strong blue finish dial (all the more commonly these were made with cloisonné polish dials portraying a guide or the world), and the just of these two to be twofold marked. It’s the fifth pink gold 2523 at any point to be offered at auction.
This is a watch that Ben highlighted in the approach the Geneva barters. At that point, we were amazed to see a particularly super parcel not being remembered for the Geneva deal, where a large portion of the enormous parts will in general wind up, and where, therefore, the vast majority of the consideration is focused.
