Royal Oak Perpetual Ceramic sells for 10x low estimate at Only Watch @ChristiesWatch
The big sales keep piling up here in Geneva. The latest big one to drop is CHF 800,000 ($803184.75 at the time of publication) paid for an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar in ceramic. It's one hell of a watch, and an expensive one. Back when this reference came out at SIHH 2017, its retail price was announced at $85,000. When AP announced that they'd made a unique blue-dialed version of this guy for Only Watch, the estimate was CHF 80,000-120,000. Boy, was that number way off!
