Phillips Auctions Personal Collection Of Chronopassion’s Laurent “Pack Rat” Picciotto In Hong Kong And There Is Much Treasure Within
Quill and Pad
On the heels of the very successful Geneva Watch Auction: FIVE, in which Phillips under the auspices of Bacs & Russo once again set multiple world records, the Geneva-based auction house department now announces its Hong Kong Watch Auction: FOUR.
The records set in the 32 million Swiss franc Geneva sale included the highest price ever paid for a Rolex (Reference 6062 Bao Dai: CHF 5,066,000) and the highest ever paid for a Rolex Daytona (a Paul Newman, only one of three known, went for CHF 3,722,000).
The Phillips/Bacs & Russo Hong Kong Watch Auction: FOUR takes place on May 30, 2017. While it includes a large number of Rolex and Patek Philippe models as well as a disarmingly beautiful array of bejeweled timepieces by Cartier and Piaget, most important for me is the 43-piece subset of watches belonging to Chronopassion watch retailer Laurent Picciotto.
