June Exclusive Watches2019 Sales
Fortuna June: Exclusive Watches auction offered an exciting selection of important vintage and contemporary timepieces. Sale highlights included a Universal Geneve Ref. 881101 Tri-Compax “Eric Clapton” Chronograph in Steel, which achieved $17,000 with a starting bid of $9,000. Universal Geneve’s Tri-Compax is a mechanical tour-de-force, combining a chronograph with triple date and moon phase in a surprisingly legible format. The 881101 takes this paragon of watchmaking and gives it a decidedly sporty look, including a fixed tachymeter bezel and twisted lugs harkening to the manufacturer’s Polerouter model. This reference was famously photographed on the wrist of musician and legendary watch collector, Eric Clapton.
