Eric Clapton's Patek Philippe Watches to Hit the Auction


With rare, exceptional timepieces, one might say that the watch collection of Eric Clapton is as prolific as his music. Indeed, the ‘Tears in Heaven’ singer is also famous for collecting his fair share of ultra-rare Patek Philippe and Rolex watches, where last year saw an earth-shattering $1.4 million sale of his Rolex Cosmograph Oyster Daytona Albino Reference 6263 at an auction by Phillips.

It appears that the famous guitarist’s rare watches are making a more frequent appearance at the auctions, as three of Clapton’s Patek Philippe timepieces will be hitting Phillips Hong Kong Watch Auction on November 29. The watches will be making their first appearance at an auction, and have only been owned by Clapton. All three models have been specially customized for Clapton, and are fitted with dials with dot hour markers and a Breguet style Roman numeral 12, with official certificates from the Patek Philippe boutique in Geneva.
