The Patek Philippe watch below was sold for “only” half a million dollars, so it’s a little bit short of our usual selection criteria, but nevertheless, this is one of the most expensive Patek Philippe I’ve ever seen and in its category, this sale event certainly worth mentioning.
It is a platinum automatic perpetual calendar wristwatch with retrograde date and phases of the moon. The Patek Philippe No.1908044 Ref.5013P was launched in 1992 and is one of the most complex wristwatches ever made by Patek Philippe with a total of 515 parts.
Other recent, interesting, high-end sales in their respective category at Sotheby’s auction include:

1990 Chateau Petrus red Bordeaux wine from Pomerol, France was sold for 23,000 GBP (~$45,000)
