The Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime, the world’s most expensive watch, has been sold at a Christie’s charity auction in Switzerland for £24.2million.
The watch was expected to sell for around £2million but smashed the previous record of £13.5million held by a Rolex Daytona once owned by Hollywood star Paul Newman which sold in 2017.
The Patek Philippe watch, one of the most complex timepieces ever crafted, was won by a private telephone bidder at the Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues in Geneva on Saturday.
The watch features a patented reversible case which can be turned to show two dials, one in rose gold, the other in black ebony.
