Some more Phillips Game Changer highlights

Ref 6205 Submariner Estimated ar $100-200.000,=

Gold Rolex Daytona Paul Newman JPS Ref 6241 estimated at $350-700.000,=

Pink on pink, fresh to the market, Patek Philippe Ref 1518, estimated at $ 1.2 – 2.400.000,=

Rolex Daytona Ref 6241 Cherry Dial Daytona, estimated at $80-160.000,=

Stainless steel Lange 1 in New Old Stock condition found i n a Cellini inventory drawer, estimated $ 150-300.000,=

Transitional and so far unique Patek Philippe Ref 2499 with round pushers, retailed by Gubelin, estimated at $ 1-2.000.000,=

Then last but not least, Christie’s will offer the One-Of-A-Kind Patek Philippe ref. 2523 retailed by Gobbi in Milan and also known as “L’Heure Bleue”, which will be sold on 23 November in “The Master Piece” auction. Made in 1953 and sold in April 1957 to Patek Philippe’s distinguished retailer Gobbi in Milan, this reference 2523 is part of an exceedingly small series of dual crown world time wristwatches. Estimate: HKD 55,000,000-110,000,000 or $ 7 – 14.000.000,=

It is thought that only seven reference 2523 dual-crown world time wristwatches in pink gold were ever made. Unique amongst this already rarefied model, it is the only known example of reference 2523 to be double signed with both Patek Philippe’s signature and that of the prestigious Milan retailer Gobbi. The Christie’s catalogue to this pink gold Patek Philippe ref. 2523 retailed by Gobbi you find over here…

I wish all the bidders good luck during these auctions! Hopefully you get what you want.
