The Salon Privé sale to auction Sixty Four Thousand Pound Patek Philippe

Patek Philippe 5960P-016 Annual Calendar Chronograph donated by Boodles


A magnificent, very rare Patek Philippe 5960P-016 Annual Calendar Chronograph donated by Boodles, goes under the hammer at The Salon Privé Sale on Thursday 4th September at 6PM, with all proceeds going to the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity.

This spectacular watch is as exclusive as it is desirable – it is also one of the final pieces to be made from this production run. The watch’s RRP stands at £64,150.

This men’s timepiece from Patek Philippe is dark and sophisticated. The watch’s case is made of platinum and features a black opaline dial that displays the standard hours, minutes and seconds indication alongside a reserve power indication located at the 12 o’clock, the watch also features date apertures, a chronograph function and day/night indication. The case back is transparent and the strap is a fine black crocodile leather with a deployment clasp. Lastly, this piece is water resistant to 30m / 100ft.

Salon Privé has supported Rainbow Trust since 2010 and to date has helped raise over £650,000 for the charity. This money has helped support lots of families like Charlotte’s, whose daughter Emma was just three years old when she was diagnosed with leukaemia.

Rainbow Trust’s Family Support Worker, Steve, provided support to Charlotte’s family for almost two years and was there for them when Emma died. Charlotte says:“You have no idea how important their bereavement support is.  After the death, life goes on and friends disappear back to work.  Rainbow Trust is still there, providing whatever my family needs and helping us keep some sort of normality.”

The three day Salon Privé spectacular includes the Chubb Insurance Concours d’Elégance (Wednesday), Boodles Ladies’ Day and The Salon Privé Sale (Thursday), The Royal College of Art ‘Concours of the Future’ design exhibition (Thursday), The British Supercar Show (Friday), EFG Art & Luxury Fair (every day), Luxury Retail Village (every day).

Salon Privé is a boutique automotive Garden Party which opens on Wednesday 3rd September with the crème de la crème of classic cars from around the world competing in the internationally-renowned Chubb Insurance Concours d’Elégance.
