The Auction Hammer – The Golden Understatement

The upcoming Antiquorum auction in New York offers once again an interesting array of watches, including stunning pieces like the Audemars Piguet – Maserati Anniversary Millenary MC12 with toubillon and chronograph, a vintage Rolex with full calendar (ref. 6062), a Vacheron Constantin Grande Complication and a… Festina!

Yes, you are reading this correctly, a Festina. A very unusual brand to be auctioned amongst so many high-end competitors and an Antiquorum first. Of course this Festina is not the average Festina, that you can pick up from your local retailer. The case is made of 18k pink gold and inside ticks an ETA 2892-A2.

This watch will for sure, offer its future owner an understatement around the wrist! This spectrum of the Festina collection has not yet gotten the praise, that for example Seiko received for its Grand Seiko collection. With an estimate of 3,000 to 4,000 USD the expected hammer price is most certainly not an understatement.
