“It was a great pleasure and honor to welcome once again our bidders online for our May auction in the great Hotel Beau-Rivage Genève. I am immensely proud of our team for accomplishing yet another auction in special circumstances and for putting together such an amazing selection, achieving great results including three world records.”

As testified during Sunday’s auction, Rolex remains a leader in the vintage watch auction market, but lots from brands such as A. Lange & Söhne and Daniel Roth also produced great results, proving that brands that are less common on the auction scene garner immense interest amongst collectors. Other notable leaders in the auction were brands such as Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, Cartier, and F.P. Journe.
