Eric Clapton’s Patek Philippe Platinum – $3.6 Million (2012)
Not only is Eric Clapton a legend in music, he’s also a known watch connoisseur and collector of rare Rolex and Patek Philippe watches. One of the watches he owned was a rare Patek Philippe ref 2499/100 in platinum – one of only 25 vintage platinum Pateks known to exist, half of them in the hands of Patek Philippe themselves.
The rarest of Patek Philippes, owned by one of the greatest rock stars ever, sure rocked the auction block. It sold for $3.6 Million in 2012 at an auction in Geneva.
