Andy Warhol’s double-signed Patek Philippe Calatrava sold for six figures in March, at Sotheby’s and now an even more complicated Perpetual Calendar he used to own is coming to auction at Christie’s in December.
The Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Ref. 3448 is a circa 1977 dress watch that comes in a 39 mm 18K yellow gold case with a silvery-white dial, gold indices and hands, and a moon display at 6 o’clock.
Day and month indications at 12 o’clock complete the complicated yet simplistic timepiece from high-end watchmaker Patek Philippe.
Christie’s estimates this watch will sell for $350,000+.
Although, considering the current state of the US and world economies, the news of Phillip’s auction house egregiously misrepresenting an Omega Speedmaster, and the Only Watch charity auction being postponed — eye-watering watch auction selling prices may finally cool off after years of eye-watering records.
