I must make a confession

The final hammer price was above what I would have paid for it so I am not too disappointed Nico  smile

I also participated the bid and dropped out when the hammer price went beyond my budget.

and just saw your post to chip in the discussion. I totally agree with you that Phllips is generally conservative in their estimate and Christie’s is more realistic. It’s just different auction tricks.
If i remember correctly it’s already the second time we bid on similar auction items - very close taste!

Oh wow! What a coincidence

or is this not a coincidence?!! smile  In which case, I hope you will be bidding at the Christie's auction in New York where two more AP minute repeaters will be of offer. Again, both in platinum and again both John Schaeffers. I am just wondering if all these watches have all come from the same collection. All the best in your bidding!

I noticed them. But i think in NYC in live auction they may go beyond 45K

Moreover after losing the AP bid I spent my budget on other watches so I won’t participate this time sad

My budget was well exceeded months ago!

But with you not bidding for the APs in New York, I might even stand half a chance!!  smile

Only 40k for one of the minute repeaters!

But I did not wake up for the auction - 6am Kuala Lumpur time! smile

i saw the results. I prefer the jumping hour way more but that one as I expected went to 53K [nt]

A friend of mine called it

'The man in the iron mask'!!  Limited to 3 pieces, that was going to sell for a high price!

Fine, then. [nt]

The auction started at 6am Kuala Lumpur time and I am glad I slept through after last week's indulgence at Patek smile

Your choice puts you in good company and I will bid as much as I can afford!  smile

Good luck on your bid. Hope you win it, then 1 more reason to brave the mad traffic in KL to meet up for coffee. [nt]
