The auction for the important modern and antique timepieces was held by Antiquorum on May 12th. Before the auction, the perfect fake Patek Philippe has caused a heat and many professional watch collectors have estimated the final price of this model.
The black dial copy watch was auctioned by the high price which is 8 times of the original estimated price. The estimated price of this model before the auction was only 50,000-80,000 Swiss Francs. But the final price was reaching to 401,000 Swiss Francs.
Why is it so popular? The timepiece was released in 1996. The words of “PROTOTYPE” and “LABO” are designed on the dial and movement, meanwhile, the Comet power reserve indication has been designed on this model which is also the iconic feature of Nautilus Ref.3710/1A.
