A very special Patek Philippe Calatrava is making its way to Christie’s Watches Online – New York action.
The watch in question is a Patek Philippe Calatrava 570 owned by Andy Warhol. In his life, it was estimated that the iconic New York City artist amassed over 300 watches with Patek Philippe a staple in his collection. This particular example bears a double-signed dial with the Hausmann & Co. name at the 6 o’clock position. Hausmann & Co., the prestigious watch and clock manufacturer, still resides in the same premises in Rome’s historical center as it did in 1794.
The auction will take place from June 8 – 22 where this watch is expected to fetch between $45,000 – $95,000 USD.
In other watch auction news, Pablo Picasso’s personal watch sells for $270,000 USD.
