The June 14 sale will include 13 Patek Philippe timepieces that once belonged to Henry Graves, Jr. (1868-1953) in addition to over 40 superlative timepieces belonging to his late grandson, Reginald “Pete” Fullerton, Jr. (1933-2012). In the world of watches, one name epitomizes the understated genius of a collector’s eye for perfection and passion to own the finest and most complicated watches ever made: Henry Graves, Jr. In his lifetime, he commissioned over 40 Patek Philippe watches, the most notable being the Henry Graves Supercomplication that Sotheby's sold for $11M in 1999. Inspired by his grandfather as a little boy, Fullerton continued the tradition of collecting superlative watches. When 27 years old, Fullerton bought one of his first Pateks in 1960, a Ref. 2497 in a prototype case for $1000. With an eye for detail, he kept the original receipt for the watch, original certificate, and even the original customs declaration. They were his private pleasure and his discreet nature kept the fact that he owned these watches out of the public’s eye. Now, the watches will find their next generation of caretakers on the morning of June 14, when they will be offered to the public for the first time.
