Now this is cool! I’ve posted about large diamonds like The Graff Pink going up for auction and there are often famous guitars and instruments for sale though various action houses. However, when I saw that Eric Clapton’s Patek Philippe watch was going on the auction block, it gave me goosebumps. Granted, the star of this sale will be the The Archduke Joseph Diamond, a 76.02 carat flawless diamond, but Clapton is a guitar god and we’ve been buying a lot of watches, including a few Patek Phillipe’s, so I want to showcase this one.

It’s a A 1987 Patek Philippe platinum perpetual calendar chronograph with moon phases. Estimate: $4.27 million. It will be interesting to see if this one goes!

And if you have a Patek Philippe watch that you are looking to sell, we pay top dollar for them at Samuelson’s Buyers. We also have some for sale at Samuelson’s Diamonds for a little less than $4 million! :)
