Luxury Week

First Look: Patek Philippe World Time Minute Repeater Watch

New York | 9 June

Released in 2017, this important modern reference was first introduced to celebrate The Art of Watches Grand Exhibition, Patek Philippe’s 10-day New York retrospective of works old and new. In honor of the occasion and the location of its hosting, the manufacturer fitted 10 total examples with cloisonné enamel dials created by the celebrated artist Anita Porchet depicting two versions of New York’s iconic skyline in day and night time colors. This present lot is fitted with the “New York by Day” dial seen on just 5 of the produced examples, which is traced by a rose gold 24-hour indicating disk, along with a city disk crafted from German silver.

The Patek Philippe World Time Minute Repeater Watch will be offered in the Important Watches Auction on 9 June at Sotheby’s New York as a part of Luxury Week.
