Watch reviews: In the watch auction, Panerai’s performance has been not eye-catching. The reason why this ‘ordinary-looking’ PAM00396 was able to make a price close to 380,000 Hong Kong dollars is also the same as the constant criteria of ‘thinness is rare’ at auction. This is a limited edition produced in 2012. This watch is limited to 100 pieces, and its number is 67.

In addition to this attractive design, this 2523 has a well-preserved appearance (you can see from the protruding corners of the lugs that even the lightest polishing is easy to see).

Watch Reviews: For those who know the watchmaking industry, the name Philip Dufour is a symbol of classics and masters. As a modern watchmaker, Philip Dufour created many of today’s most coveted watches. His watches have clean and classic lines, and his excellence in watchmaking skills has prevented his watches from reaching mass production. The limited production also makes his watches difficult to obtain at auction.

It should be understood that, compared to round diamonds, square diamond technology is more difficult to achieve. The total number of diamonds on this watch is 5.288 carats. The impeccable design and quality of the movement are rare.

Watch Comments: At this auction, in addition to watches, several pocket watches and even clocks appeared. I chose one of the most representative pocket watches to introduce to everyone at the end of the article. A great collector David Salomon once wrote that ‘carrying a delicate Breguet pocket watch makes you feel like a genius brain is hidden in your pocket’. You must know how much benefit the genius Louis Breguet created from the horology and watchmaking skills. As the Breguet’s first self-winding pocket watch, this Perpetuel N ° 9 also has a history-changing status, so its role is self-evident.
Lot.968 Patek Philippe 1579
Basic information: 18K gold case with a case diameter of 36 mm. Equipped with a timing function, using a manual winding cal.13.
Estimate: HK $ 1.2 million–2400000, approximately RMB 1000000-2010,000.
Transaction price (including commission): 3,200,000 Hong Kong dollars, about RMB 2,700,000.
Watch Comments: Patek Philippe was launched on the market in 1943. The most striking feature is the unusual shape of the case, which collectors call a ‘spider ear’ design. The Breguet digital time scale in its dial is also the most classic design of that era. Although the Breguet-style digital time scale and hour hand design are still used in the design of watches, but who can really interpret it? What is the truth of this? You know, this Patek Philippe 1579, produced in 1952, has been more than half a century to this day. It is rare that such a good design can get such a good preservation.
