Sotheby’s to Auction Rare Patek Philippes Owned by Henry Graves Family

In December 1999, Sotheby’s made watch-auction history. The auction house sold the so-called Henry Graves Supercomplication — a pocketwatch originally commissioned from Patek Philippe by noted watch collector Henry Graves, Jr, and which featured 24 complications — for an astounding $11,002,500, still the world record for any timepiece at auction. Last week, Sotheby’s announced that it will hold a single-owner sale on 14 June 2012 in New York that will include more rare watches from the collections of Graves and his grandson, Reginald Pete H Fullerton, Jr, a noted collector and connoisseur in his own right — via redwolf.newsvine.com
