oooooh the 1st set of Metiers d'Art Masks finally for auction

something many have been waiting for! The 1st set of the Masks watches made in 2008 are finally being offered at auction. Even though two other sets followed the original models retained a je ne sais quoi making them more desirable.

In Sept 2014 Antioquorum NY auctioned the 2nd set for over $603.000

On Feb 7, Antiquorum HK will be auctioning this 1st set as lot 190 with an estimate of HKD 3,800,000-5,400,00 (USD 500,00 - 700,000)



The Chinese Funeral mask is simply mesmerizing. This first set is my

favourite so far.

I never really thought much about the Masks collection, until I had the pleasure of seeing them in the metal at one of the HL London dinner.

In real life these watches are completely different, their depth really bringing the dial to life.

Sold but below estimate

It was sold for less than estimated - for ca 3.500.000 HKD. Lot #190, but they deleted result from the final list (no idea why).
