Results for JLC super complications at auction and an unsold IWC

JLC Gyrotourbillon 1 in white gold

A couple of days ago the Antiquorum sale in Hong Kong (which had its preview in Singapore cancelled with no notice) saw the sale of a trio of JLC super complications.

The Gyrotourbillon 1 in white gold hammered at HKD2,420,000 or about USD312,000 (including buyer’s premium), while the Reverso Gyrotourbillon 2 sold for HKD1,820,000 which is equivalent to about USD235,000.

The Reverso a Triptyque sold for HKD2,540,000 or about USD328,000. All the JLCs sold for a bit above the estimates and in line with past prices.

And the other notable complication at the sale, a piece unique IWC Destriero Scafusia in platinum, went unsold. As I noted in my earlier post pre-auction, the USD220,000-270,000 estimate for the IWC seemed ambitious.
