Patek Philippe's first self-winding wristwatch

Hong Kong | 7 April

Sotheby’s is honoured to present the famous and historically important self-winding wristwatch, made in 1952 and sold to the renowned collector J.B. Champion. This wristwatch was the first self-winding wristwatch made by Patek Philippe and is arguably one of the most important vintage watches to appear on the market for many years. We are thrilled to be given the opportunity and the trust to offer this highly historical and important time-only watch, an important milestone not only in Patek Philippe’s illustrious history, and in the history of watchmaking.
