The previous record for a Rolex at auction was set in May when the Bao Dai Rolex sold for more the $5 million, also by Phillips.

“Many people are saying this is the greatest watch on the planet,” said Geoff Hess, a vintage Rolex collector and CEO of Analog Shift. “This watch transcends watch collecting, it transcends the watch community,” he continued.

Record set for Diamond sale

Tuesday’s sale breaks the record previously held by the Oppenheimer Blue diamond, which sold for $57.5m at Christie’s in Geneva in May last year.

Prior to the sale David Bennet, Sotheby’s worldwide chairman for international jewellery, who presided over the auction, said: “The extraordinary size of this 59.60-carat diamond, paired with its richness of colour, surpasses any known pink diamond recorded in history.”
