The day after the records set at the Rolex Daytona “Lesson One” auction, Christie’s set yet more records with its “Important Watches” sale in Geneva. The two auctions together raised almost US$44 million, making this the most lucrative series of auctions ever.  The Lange Double Split in steel, the only one of its kind ever made, hammered for SFr461,000, which works out to US$501,769. That sets a record for a Lange watch. The result is an even richer price than the unique 36 mm Pour le Mérite tourbillon sold by Dr Crott last year. The rest of the “Important Watches” results are available from Christie’s, including a hammer price of US$2.16 million for a pink gold Patek Philippe ref. 2499. – SJX
