Switzerland based Antiquorum Auctioneers will soon be hosting the 13th edition of their “Important Modern & Vintage Timepieces Auction” at the Mandarin Oriental in Geneva. Displaying 603 exceptional watches, the highlight of the show will be a recently rediscovered Patek Philippe set in 18-carat pink gold. Made in 1894, this keyless pocket watch features a perpetual calendar, chronograph, lunar phases and calendar and was originally sold to a Monsieur E. Hoesch of Naples, Italy. At the time of production, the piece cost ₣3,750 ($4,250). However, on the auction block it is expected to fetch between ₣200,000 and ₣300,000 ($226,700 and $340,160).
