Philippe Dufour’s $1.5 million Simplicity 20th Anniversary Watch was the highlight.
The watch, which uses silicon on the escapement and features enhanced lume, will debut at Phillips’s December auction in New York.
The watches are part of Guy Laliberté’s One Drop auction, which includes a slew of important timepieces.
Together with the rest of the lots, the sale totaled over $28 million.
The 18-karat rose gold piece is a new creation from the master watchmaker and is number 00 of just 21 pieces.
The sale, scheduled for November in Geneva, puts the spotlight on watches made in the last 20 years.
The sale was 99% sold by both lot and value.
Four of the legendary watch executives timepieces sold for over $8.76 million. Plus, F.P. Journe rakes in more than $1.67 million.
