Christie’s Will Auction ‘hai Selassie Patek Philippe Black Ref. 2497 Black Plate Watch’ Again

Time back to November 9, 2015, at the Geneva auction held by Christie’s, a Patek Philippe Ref. 2497 black gold-plated dial watch has attracted widespread attention in the collectors. This is the Ref. 2497 watch with a black gold-plated dial, making its debut in the auction market, with an estimated value of 500,000 to 1 million Swiss francs. The watch was originally owned by Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie, who later gave the watch to a friend.

Haile Selassie Ref. 2497, a rare Patek Philippe watch, will be auctioned at Christie’s this May

   The auction was originally scheduled, but due to disputes over ownership, the watch was withdrawn at the last minute of the auction on November 9, 2015. On May 15 this year, the Patek Philippe Ref. 2497 watch, once owned by the Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie, will return to Christie’s Geneva auction. The ownership dispute has been resolved after confirmation.

Ref. 2497 on the back of the watch is engraved with the name of Emperor Haile Selassie

   So, back to this watch, why is it so special? Ref. 2497 succeeds Ref. 1526 and is one of the early perpetual calendar models produced by Patek Philippe. The production cycle of Ref. 2497 is from 1950 to 1963. It is equipped with a Caliber 27-SCQ manual winding movement, a thick case and a stepped bezel design. The Ref. 2497 watch participating in the auction is particularly special, most notably with a black gold-plated dial, which is very rare in Patek Philippe antique timepieces. In addition, the combination of gold-plated printed time stamps and Arabic numerals is also quite unusual and has rarely appeared in auctions before.
   So where does this watch come from? In fact, it was given to Haier Selassie by Italian entrepreneur and pilot Federico Bazzi in 1954. Then, Haile Selassie gave it to ‘a well-known figure in Africa’, who passed the watch to future generations, and finally commissioned Christie’s auction. As we know, tracing the origin of a watch is not easy, so this type of information can be very helpful for auction sales. All in all, I am very glad to see this Ref. 2497 watch return to the auction, after all, it was deeply regrettable that it was abandoned halfway through.

2014 Market Review Emerging ‘golden Country’

In terms of international trade volume, Swiss watch exports are far less than mainland China and Hong Kong. In 2013, the global production of watches and clocks was estimated at about 1.2 billion pieces, of which 635 million and 332 million were exported from mainland China and Hong Kong, and only 28 million were exported from Switzerland. However, in terms of export value, the situation is exactly the opposite. The total value of the 28 million pieces of watches and clocks exported from Switzerland is as high as 23.6 billion U.S. dollars, which is more than double the total value of exports of watches and clocks in Hong Kong and Mainland China (10 billion and 5.6 billion U.S. dollars respectively). In other words, the Swiss watch industry dominates high value-added watch products such as mechanical watches. This can be seen from the price of watches and clocks: According to the figures in 2013, the average price of watches and clocks exported from Switzerland reached US $ 791, and the exports from Hong Kong and China were only US $ 19 and US $ 3, respectively.

   Since 2000, the Asia-Pacific region has become a major exporter of Swiss watch products, which plays an important role in the development of the Swiss watch industry. While the economic development of the Asia-Pacific region has created wealth, it has also spawned a group of people with high purchasing power. Judging from the number of Swiss watch exports, we can know a little about the opportunities it brings to the fine watchmaking industry: In 2000, the total value of Swiss watch exports to mainland China was only 50 million US dollars. The top 20 export markets do not include mainland China. By 2005, that number had rapidly risen to $ 394 million, and in 2010 it had further climbed to $ 1.23 billion. Last year, the relevant figures reached US $ 1.62 billion, second only to Hong Kong and the United States, and higher than Germany and Italy.

   The same trend is also reflected in the entire Asia-Pacific region-from 2003 to 2013, Swiss watch exports to the Asia-Pacific market as a destination increased by 254%, totaling US $ 8.82 billion. Over the same period, the overall growth of Swiss watch exports was 122%. Strong demand in the Asia-Pacific region has restructured the international watch market: Asia (excluding Japan) accounted for Switzerland’s total watch exports from 24% a decade ago, rising to 38% today, ranking first, surpassing Europe (30%) And North America (11%).
