The sale will be highlighted by watches created by two leading brands: Harry Winston and Patek Philippe. The example of Patek Philippe's iconic reference 5971 is possibly one of the best kept secrets within this family. In fact, unknown within the collector's community and fully confirmed by the certificate from Patek Philippe, the present emerald-set reference 5971 is a true landmark as no more than 10 pieces have been manufactured. Fitted with 42 emeralds weighing approximately 3.33 carats, this watch is unworn and has a price estimate of $280,000 - $350,000
