Patek Philippe Celestial 5102G watch
‘Celestial’ The astronomical concept was first born in Patek Philippe in 1933 at the request of a customer to create a pocket watch with 24 complex functions. It wasn’t until the launch of the Caliber89 pocket watch with 33 functions in 1989 that the title of the most complicated function watch was made.
Star Caliber 2000 introduced in 2000. The Patek Philippe Heavenly King 5002 ‘Sky Moon’ watch that was subsequently launched, the simple version of the 5102 represented by this Lot, and the 5106 special edition specially launched for Only Watch, all adopted this concept. Patek Philippe 5102G is a frequent visitor to major auction companies. Compared with the 5102J in the gold case, the platinum version is on average 10% higher.
In the first half of this year, the transaction price of Patek Philippe 5102G fluctuated around 1.7 million Hong Kong dollars. This also reveals a feature of Christie’s valuation strategy from the side: attracting expressions through lower valuations, and then relying on the fiery atmosphere of the scene to raise prices point. The end result is that, for seemingly undervalued important lots, the final transaction price is often higher than the normal price.
Those who often linger in the world’s major watch auction houses must be proficient in this approach, so for a certain number of ‘estimated prices’ that have been used as auctioneer chips, they are often dismissive. Individuals who have been tempted to increase their prices in the end due to the temptation of the bottom valuation, and finally make a high-price transaction, should be happy when they spend a few extra dollars to buy a few minutes. After all, this is also one of the fun of playing watches.
Estimated price: 1.11 million to 1.37 million
