This Patek Philippe Ref. 1436 rattrapante (double) chronograph watch sold for about $1.12 million at an Antiquorum auction. Incredible price for a steel watch. Granted, they are highly rare with just two known to exist, the price indicates a clear resilience to the economy for passionate collectors of Patek Philippe and other fine watch brands. In all, Patek Philippe watches are always strong at auction so expect to be surprised again.
