Auction Report Three Audemars Piguet Watches That Stole The Show In Geneva
This week’s auctions brought plenty of big results, many of them pretty predictable. The Rolex ref. 6062 “Bao Dai” sold for over $5 million, Haile Selassie’s Patek Philippe ref. 2497 sold for $2.9 million, and even this weird Submariner set a world record. But there were some surprises too, especially on Audemars Piguet’s side. Royal Oaks continued to do well (again, not that shocking), but pre-1972 AP did so much better than the usual suspects. Here are three lots that blew us, and the bidders, away.
