Moving from Rolex to Patek Philippe, there is certainly this ref. 1563 split-seconds chronograph that exists within three examples The other two examples, one of which was Duke Elligton's personal watch, have already sold, and this is the final example we know to exist. That this one also has luminous cartier pasha replica Breguet numerals and sword hands sets it apart from its two sister watches too. It is Lot 193, is estimated between $850,000-1,500,000, and you can see our full hands-on look at this watch here. While we're talking about unique Patek, we can't forget Lot 108, the only known Cartier-signed ref. 2499 on the planet. This yellow gold third series 2499 was produced in 1966 and sold in 1968 through Cartier New York. This watch comes with a certificate of authenticity from Cartier, something completely necessary with a watch like this that is so unusual and interesting. There are Cartier breitling SuperOcean replica serial numbers under the upper left lug, and even beyond the Cartier provenance this is a great 2499. It's tough to look at this watch without smiling a little. The estimate here is $530,000-840,000 and this is one serious collectors are going to be watching. Finally, we have one of the more impressive pocket watches we've seen in a while. Lot 377, this watch has a complicated backstory. It is a collaborative creation of Dürrstein & Co., Glashütte Uhrenfabrik Union, and Audemars Piguet that was started in 1891 and sold in Budapest in 1893 to a family of Hungarian nobles. There are 13 complications in total, including a perpetual calendar, moon phase, split seconds chronograph, flying 15ths of a second, petite and grande sonnerie, minute repeater, and others. This is some very serious horology. Sure, you can't wear it on your cartier Ballon Bleu replica wrist, but with an estimate of $370,000-680,000, this watch offers a lot of amazing watchmaking for the money. Christie's is hosting the Important Watches sale in Geneva on Monday, November 11th beginning at 10am. For a complete look at the catalog, visit Christie's online.
