Swiss manfucturer Patek Phillipe has the world’s most complicated wristwatch ever to his credit. And this exclusive luxury watch called the double-faced Sky Moon Tourbillon is to go on sale on October 7 at Patrizzi and Co.’s Madison Avenue showroom. The estimated price tag, we are told, lies between $1.1 million and $1.3 million.
You must be wondering what exactly does makes this timepiece complicated. Well for starters, it is a rare combinaion of 18-carat yellow gold that has a black dial display for a perpetual calendar and minute repeater. Again, there is a cool tourbillion escapement too. And if that wasn’t complicated enought, then turn to the reverse side of the dial that shows a sky chart and sidereal time.
Since we know how traditional this auction if going to be, it will also sell two limited-edition sets by Patek Phillipe. So far a total of 150 watches are lined up to be auctioned off. These include a set of four platinum watches with Barques dials, a set of four white gold Birds of Paradise wristwatched. The watches will be opened for public viewing only on Saturday, October 3 till October 6.
