On Thursday June 10 at its New York City headquarters, Antiquorum will offer 364 modern and vintage timepieces for collectors of all stripes. Pre-sale viewings will be held in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Greenwich and New York. The highlight of the sale is a modern Patek Philippe Ref. 5104, produced in 2008, expected to sell for $500,000 to $700,000.
The ref. 5104, shown below, is a minute-repeating, astronomic, self-winding, platinum wristwatch with perpetual calendar, retrograde date, moon phases and leap year indication. The watch is accompanied by the original fitted winding box.
Another prize piece on offer is this rare Patek Philippe ref. 1518. Produced in 1946, this astronomic 18K yellow gold wristwatch features a perpetual calendar, square button chronograph, moon phases, register and tachometer. The pre-sale estimate is $150,000 to $200,000.
Returning to the modern era, this Patek Philippe ref. 3970 EP dates from 2001. This platinum example has a round button chronograph, register, perpetual calendar, moon phases, leap year and 24-hour indication. This piece has both sapphire display and solid platinum casebacks and a spare diamond-set black dial. The pre-sale estimate is $110,000 to $150,000.
The 1970s are not known for tasteful, understated wristwatches, but fortunately for us Patek Philippe produced this lovely ref. 3448, retailed by Howes, that brings to mind fine timepieces of an earlier era. Produced in 1977, this automatic winding 18K yellow gold wristwatch has a perpetual calendar and moon phases. The pre-sale estimate is $80,000 to $100,000.
Fans of Richard Mille’s innovative technology and design will have an opportunity to bid on this “Tourbillon RM 006” No. 05/20, produced in 2003. This tonneau-shaped and curved titanium wristwatch features a visible one-minute tourbillon regulator. The pre-sale estimate is $70,000 to $130,000.
