Fine gold Patek Philippe wristwatch sells at Freeman's

Last week, Freeman's auctioneers held a sale of watches and jewellery.

The undeniable stars in the auction were a pair of gold Castellani earrings which sparked some astonishingly frenetic bidding and left their estimate of $6,000-8,000 far behind to leave the stage for $169,000.

However, there were also some lots of interest which stayed close to their entry-level prices, notably some which would be of more interest to collectors of fine timepieces: Watches from impressive designers including Cartier and Patek Philippe.



In particular, one fine piece: a mens' 18 karat rose gold world time Patek Philippe wristwatch which originally belonged to a Florida Gentleman was a very attractive piece at its listing of $18,000-22,000.

The subtle rose gold cased circular face of guilloché enamel is signed by the maker. The outer chapter ring of the timepiece displays twenty-four hours is divided against a silvered and midnight blue background and the outer ring displays forty world cities.

Accompanied by its original box, the attractive piece was pushed up to $23,040 - above its estimate by still likely to prove a good investment.
