DALLAS, TX.- A superb collection of rare watches from a highly influential tech entrepreneur will capture the attention of watch collectors during Heritage Auctions’ Timepieces Signature Auction Oct. 24 in New York City. The collection has been lovingly curated over time by the consignor and features some of the finest models from the world’s greatest horological houses.

Several important and rare Patek Philippe timepieces are being offered in the collection, but these two stand above the rest: A Patek Philippe Ref. 5013R-010 in Rose Gold, with Self-Winding Minute Repeating movement, Perpetual Calendar, Moon Phase, Leap Year Indication And Retrograde Date (est. $250,000+) and a Yellow Gold Patek Philippe Ref. 3974J Automatic Perpetual Calendar Minute Repeating Wristwatch With Moon Phases, circa 1991 (est. $250,000+).

“The timepieces in this collection are some of the best of the best. They represent the very best of what Patek Philippe were capable of at the time, with unsurpassed design and craftsmanship, and will take center stage in the new owners collection. This is a rare opportunity to acquire some of the greatest pieces from the world’s foremost makers” said Jim Wolf, Director of Fine Timepieces at Heritage Auctions. “The tech entrepreneur who meticulously curated this collection has an ultra-discerning eye and has collected only the best of each reference and we think collectors worldwide will be excited with the eminence of this offering.”

This Jaeger-LeCoultre Skeletonized Gyrotourbillon II in Platinum (est. $165,000+) is rightly considered a modern masterpiece. The watch was limited to only 75 examples in platinum and continues Jaeger-LeCoultre’s grand tradition of ultra-complicated timepieces.
