NEW YORK, NY.- Christie’s Watches Online: The New York Edition (8 – 22 June) achieved a total of $2,372,125 with 82% sold by lot, 100% sold by value, and 112% hammer above low estimate. There was global participation with bidders from 30 countries and over 33% new registrants.

Also highlighting the auction was the Patek Philippe Calatrava, ref 570, 18k yellow gold wristwatch, retailed by Hausmann & Co, and owned by the pop art icon and watch collector Andy Warhol, which sold for over three times its estimate achieving $150,000.

Additionally, strong prices were achieved for design icons including a very rare and highly craved Cartier Crash in Pink Gold that sold for $137,500; a highly attractive iconic Patek Philippe Nautilus, reference 3800, steel with blue dial and diamonds indexes, designed by legendary Gerald Genta, which realized $52,500; and a very rare Rolex reference 6036, steel triple calendar, oyster chronograph, anti-magnetic wristwatch, part of the celebrated ‘Dato-Compax’ or ‘Jean-Claude Killy’ family, that sold for $187,500.
