Stylish Watches by Rolex, Patek Philippe, Chopard and More

  • Patek Philippe. A very fine and rare limited edition white gold world time wristwatch, made to commemorate the opening of the Patek Philippe salon in Shanghai, Ref 5130G-018. Estimate $64,000–102,400 (HK$500,000–800,000).
    In celebration of the opening of Patek Philippe’s first Maison in Shanghai, China, the luxury Swiss watch manufacturer presented a special edition version of the iconic world time reference 5130. In the watch's chapter ring, which lists 24-cities each representing one of the 24 time zones, “Hong Kong” is replaced with “Shanghai.” Only twenty-five of each of the pink gold and white gold versions of this special model were produced, marking a truly historic moment for Patek Philippe's presence in China.



  • A. Lange & Söhne. A fine pink gold jump hour and minute wristwatch with power reserve indication, Zeitwerk. Estimate $44,800–64,000 (HK$350,000–500,000).
    The Lange Zeitwerk model is the first A. Lange & Söhne mechanical wristwatch to feature a digital numeral display. The time is shown using three disks: one for the hour and two for the minutes. The Zeitwerk's movement is often undervalued because of its simple appearance, however to constantly move each disc every 60 seconds requires a special escapement that provides a small burst of power in each rotation. In 2013, the Zeitwerk was also awarded with the prestigious Aiguille d'Or at the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève, the highest distinction in today's watch market.

  • Chopard. A limited edition white gold automatic striking hour wristwatch with date, L.U.C. Strike One. Estimate $10,240–15,360 (HK$80,000–120,000).
    Striking time is a fascinating watch function rarely found today. The mechanism is more commonly found in clocks, allowing them to chime every hour or so according to the design. For this limited-edition Chopard, the hammer rests at the 12 o’clock position, with an aperture that allows the wearer to view the gong being struck on the hour.

  • Tudor. A stainless steel wristwatch, Black Bay, Ref 79220R. Estimate $1,550–3,840 (HK$12,000–30,000).
    At Basel World in 2012, Tudor launched the watch reference 79220R “Black Bay,” a tribute to its first dive watch in 1954, to much acclaim. It's color scheme – a gilt dial with pink text that blends smoothly with pink gold-plated snowflake hands and burgundy bezel – add to it's vintage feel. 

  • Rolex. A stainless steel wristwatch with bracelet, Submariner, Ref 5513. Estimate $7,680–12,800 (HK$60,000–100,000).
    In the mid- to late-1980s, Rolex underwent a transitional period where they experimented with new materials and made minor adjustments to give their pieces a more luxurious feel. Due to factory inaccuracies and conditions over time, these lacquered dials sometimes crack, creating a truly unique and interesting “Spider Dial.” Depending on the particular watch, a finely cracked “Spider Dial” can be very desirable among Rolex collectors.

  • Cartier. A limited edition silver and blue lacquered fountain pen, Prestige Dragon. Estimate $3,840–6,400 (HK$30,000–50,000).
    The body of this Cartier pen has an exquisite finish with 925 sterling silver and blue high gloss lacquer covered with high gloss rhodium platinum. The twisted dragon on the cap of the pen is hand carved from sterling silver and its eyes are embellished with two green emeralds. Five white pearls also decorate the pen, a limited edition piece with only 888 created.

  • Patek Philippe. A stainless steel bracelet watch, Nautilus, Ref 3800/1. Estimate $17,920–38,400 (HK$140,000–300,000).
    Ref. 3800 was manufactured from 1981 to 2006. The Nautilus model was designed by the legendary watchmaker Gerald Genta, known for designing the Royal Oak and many other iconic models in the watch market today. 

  • Jaeger-Lecoultre. A fine and rare limited edition pink gold reversible minute repeating wristwatch, Reverso Répétition Minutes. Estimate $23,040–32,000 (HK$180,000–250,000).
    Assembled in an 18k pink gold Reverso case, this limited-edition minute-repeater wristwatch bears a movement made of 306 hand-finished pieces. The silver dial displays the ringtone regulator that controls the train rotation and harmonizes the striking time.

  • A. Lange & Söhne. A fine platinum wristwatch, 1815. Estiamte $15,360–20,480 (HK$120,000–160,000).
    This watch belongs to the A. Lange & Söhne 1815 collection, which celebrates the birth year of F.A. Lange, founder of the A. Lange & Söhne manufactory.

  • Panerai, yellow gold dual time zone wristwatch with date and 24-hour indication, Luminor 1950 8 days GMT, PAM00289. Esitmate $11,520–19,200 (HK$90,000 - $150,000).
    Panerai, a luxury Italian watch manufacturer founded in 1860, was originally created for the Italian Naval Force. Today the watchmaker continues to create pieces true to these beginnings. A Panerai watch can be easily spotted by a “sandwich dial” and oversized-yet-refined case design. This equisite yellow-gold watch is accompanied by a beautiful yellow-gold case with an 8-day power reserve and a dual-time zone function.
