Hi Everybody, I just wanted to "close the loop" on jtodd's post on the Antiquorum auction that was held in HK this past Saturday. (clicke here to sse the original post)
The Platinum 250th Anniversary watch had an estimate of HK$230,000-HK$310,000. It sold for HK$319,000 (HK$399,000 with BP)
The Malte Tourbillon in steel had an estimate of HK$510,000-HK$777,000. It sold for HK$444,000 (HK$555,000 with BP)
The Ref. 6694 "Batman" Royal Chronometer had that crazy low estimate of HK$19,000-HK27,000. It sold for more than double at HK$60,000 (HK$75,000 with BP), which I believe is not an unreasonable price.
The German Navy Deck Chronometer did not sell.
There were other watches that were sold at what I thought to be very reasonable prices as well (such as a Ref. 43031/3 Perpetual Calandar that sold for HK$110,000 with BP). It seems that if you can find something that suits your fancy, it might be a good time to pick up something nice?
