A unique Lange Pour le Merite tourbillon in platinum just hammered for an outstanding CHF314,500 (inclusive of premium) in Sotheby’s in Geneva. This particular watch, no. 22/50, has a pink dial ordered by the original owner. Based on the photos the condition doesn’t look great – oxidisation of hands and scratches on screw for example – but it is a beautiful watch. Visually this is a perfect match for the Patek 5101 Ten Day Tourbillon with copper dial.
Lange watches usually fetch respectable but not outstanding prices at auction so this is interesting. A Zeitwerk sold for a premium at a Christie’s sale recently too.
