The George Daniels Spring Case Tourbillon sold for over $4 million at Phillips while a Richard Mille raked in over $3.6 million at Christie’s.
Pieces from names like Masahiro Kikuno and Daizoh Makihara are as good as it gets.
The coveted timepieces will go on display before Philips sells them in Geneva this November.
Both will be offered as part of a new spring watch auction in New York City.
A George Daniels Pocket Watch, Ralph Ellison’s Omega and a Rare Rolex Will Lead Phillips’s New York Auction
The December sale will follow the house’s record-breaking $74.5 million Geneva auction earlier this month.
And the new brands that are carrying on the legacy.
The pocket watch by the late modern master will be on display in London for the next three years.
The pioneering watchmaker famously described the timepiece as something you’d want “on your package tour to Mars.”
The auctions took in a whopping $82.2 million in total sales.
