Antiquorum is delighted to offer the Patek Philippe Calibre 89 from the Matsuda Collection - the world’s most complicated timepiece with a total of 33 complications - in our 35th anniversary sale on November 14th and 15th. As this extraordinary timepiece is rarely seen at auction, this is an exceptional opportunity for collectors to acquire one of the most important timepieces in existence. Only four unique models of the Calibre 89 were ever produced; one each in yellow, pink and white gold and one in platinum. The present Calibre 89 in yellow gold was previously sold by Antiquorum in our April 9, 1989 sale of “The Art of Patek Philippe” to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Patek Philippe; while the Calibre 89 in white gold was sold in our 30th anniversary sale on April 24th, 2004.
With 33 complications, 1728parts, and weight almost 3lbs, the Calibre 89 is no doubt the most complex watch in the world. It was created in 1989 to celebrate the 150th anniversary. There are only four available in platinum, white gold, rose gold and yellow gold.
Estimate: 4,500,000 – 5,500,000 CHF
