Christie’s sells Andy Warhol’s Patek Philippe for 75,000 USD

During its online-only Time for Spring sale, British auction house Christie’s sold a Patek Philippe wristwatch formerly owned by legendary artist Andy Warhol for 75,000 US dollars including premium…

Warhol’s love for the Cartier Tank was well documented; less so was the fact he had a canopy above his bed that was home to a broad collection of watches, many of which were Patek Phillipes. The 75,000-dollar example bought online yesterday during the Christie’s auction was Ref. 2503, an 18-karat gold classic with an original black lizard-skin strap, applied numerals and bunny-ear lugs – all of which combined to portray a classy yet whimsical character that perfectly echoed that of its original owner.
