Hommage to Heritage
What is it about the past that continues to inspire and inform our present? Do we look to the past for creative inspiration because it’s the easiest option available to us, or because iteration is innovation? When does something become passé or eternal – and who makes that decision?

Tiffany To, Alex Ballmer and Douglas Escribano sit down with Antia Porchet to better understand the Dome Clock to be offered in Hong Kong Watch Auction XII, through the eyes of the Master Enameller herself.
Phillips Perpetual86 watches for sale
Model: Multi Scale Chronograph limited edition of 400 watches.
Effectively a one minute chronograph in conjunction with the multi-scale dial to measure either speed (tachymeter scale), distance (telemeter scale) or heartbeats (pulsometer scale). The fact that such an utilitarian complication is found on such an elegant watch, and an Anniversary piece in addition, betrays a surprising amount of irony, quite unusual considered the brand. Complete with full accessories and found in superb overall condition.
Model: Cosmograph Daytona
An outstanding full set example of one of the most prestigious and desired steel sports watches, this Cerachrom bezel Daytona features the crisp white dial. Powered by the revered self winding Calibre 4130 with its 72 hour power reserve, waterproof and incredibly good-looking, it is arguably one of the worlds most sought after watches. The present example remains under Rolex international warranty until 2024.
Model: Logical One BTG limited edition of 5 pieces
An original owner example of the instantly recognizable Romain Gauthier Logical One, in this instance with a case treated in amorphous diamond like coating and fitted with a fired vitreous enamel dial, with skeletonized, dagger-shaped hands for the hours and minutes. Classic hallmarks of Gauthier such as the distinctive balance wheel are all visible. Complete with International Guarantee and box.
