Antiquorum is taking over the Monaco Yacht Club tomorrow to auction £21 million worth of luxury replica watches uk, including pieces from the holy trinity – Patek Philippe, Rolex and Audemars Piguet – as well as two of the hottest independents in the pre-owned market: F.P. Journe and Richard Mille. The live auction takes place on 19th July. There are 373 lots, the majority of which were sourced from three collections in Switzerland, Monaco and the Middle East. The total estimate of the Swiss made fake watches is from 15 to 25 million CHF.
The top replica Patek Philippe lots are, not surprisingly, both Nautilus references. One is a Ref. 3800/001 in platinum with an original platinum bracelet, and the other is a Ref. 3700/1 in 18-karat yellow gold that comes with a matching set of cuff links. Both are estimated to sell for between around £170,000 and £340,000. Another Patek Philippe fake for sale growing in popularity is the vintage Calatrava, and this sale includes a Ref. 565 in steel, double signed by American retailer Black Starr & Gorham, with an exotic leather and metal strap. It is likely to fetch somewhere between £42,000 and £67,000.
Key Swiss made replica Rolexes in the auction are also the usual suspects, including two Paul Newman Daytonas, one a Ref. 6263 in steel (estimated at around £250,000 to £420,000) and the other in 18-karat yellow gold, a Ref. 6264, estimated at £590,000 to £1 million.
The two main independents in the sale, F.P. Journe and Richard Mille, are hot tickets on the secondary market right now. According to a review of the AAA replica Rolex Daytona UK auction market in 2021 by The Mercury Project, there were 1,052 watches sold in the six-figure category in 2021, which accounted for 43 percent of total sales. “As usual, copy Patek Philippe comes out on top with 40 percent of the lots (417 timepieces), but it is followed by a core trio of brands: Swiss movement fake Rolex, with 188 pieces, Audemars Piguet with 134 pieces and F.P. Journe with 110 pieces. All other watch brands contributed 20 percent, including Cartier (27 lots) Richard Mille (24 lots) and A. Lange & Söhne (23 lots).”
