Leading the selection of important and interesting timepieces to be offered at auction on Sunday 14 May in Geneva is the legendary Patek Philippe Calibre 89 in yellow gold. After nearly a decade of research and craftsmanship, the Calibre 89 became the most complicated watch ever created when Patek Philippe unveiled it in 1989 to mark their 150th anniversary. One of the most important watches ever to be offered at auction, it remains the brand’s mechanical ambassador.
Sotheby’s is honoured to present this exceptional timepiece along with a fine selection of vintage and modern watches from the most prominent brands in the market. The sale will launch the inaugural season at Sotheby’s brand new sales location in Mandarin Oriental, Geneva.
