But the 1933 Patek Philippe which came to be known as the Graves Supercomplication was said to be blighted by a deadly curse.

The so-called holy grail of timepieces brought a litany of bad luck for multi-millionaire US banker Henry Graves Jr throughout the years he owned it.

Now the curse appears to have struck again. Hours before an undisclosed buyer bought it at auction in Geneva for a record 23 million Swiss francs, time had already run out for the man who put it up anonymously for sale.
