Auction Report Sotheby’s To Offer A Patek Philippe Caliber 89 In May At The ‘Important Watches’ Geneva Auction
Sotheby’s has just announced that it will offer a Patek Philippe Caliber 89 in its Important Watches sale in Geneva, on May 14th 2017. The Caliber 89 was originally created by Patek Philippe to celebrate the company’s 150th anniversary and was when it was revealed, in 1989, it was the most complicated watch in the world. There were only four made, and it wasn’t until nine years later that the other three were completed. Those three had rose gold, white gold, and platinum cases; the Caliber 89 offered by Sotheby’s is the first one completed, in a yellow gold case.
