Results From The Phillips Hong Kong Watch Auction One

The third and final watch auction presented by Phillips this year, The Hong Kong Watch Auction: One realised USD $15,189,578 after last night’s final swing of the gavel. Comprised of some of the world’s rarest timepieces, the auction saw a Patek Philippe Reference 3450 smash the record amount paid at auction in Asia for a single timepiece.
