A friend just texted me -

The Patek Caliber 89 - the worlds most complicated Pocket Watch - did not make its reserve.

Even the good stuff is hurting~~~

6,500,000 was the reserve.

I remember when they were made they sold for 4 million each - only 4 were made - one each in yellow, white, rose gold, and platinum.

Obviously pocket watches are dead... Razz

Especially those which are made for giant pockets!
