CAN YOU GUESS OUR TOP LOTS?
Closing the catalog of May 8th Geneva auction, we are thrilled to prepare our May 29th Hong Kong auction: there is only few days left to consign, before heading to our summer auctions in Forte dei Marmi and Monaco.
We can already announce that all the great names in watchmaking will be present at these auctions. Starting with Patek Philippe which, since 1839, has embodied Swiss watchmaking excellence, combining high quality standards with elegant design. Steeped in history, the company has made a name for itself by developing the most prestigious complications and by serving the highest-ranking people – Queen Victoria, Popes Pius IX and Leo XIII, Henry Graves Jr., James Ward Packard, Farouk of Egypt, the Shah of Iran ….
By combining robustness, precision and timeless elegance, Rolex has established its strong position on the watch market thanks to its technical advances, but also through the human adventures with which the brand has been associated. Beyond the social symbol, it is a brand that is perceived as a stable investment.
The idea of wearing a luxury sports watch was born in 1956 with the Rolex Day Date. But the Royal Oak, launched in 1972, is a horological revolution throughout its genius design, a few years before the Patek Philippe Nautilus (1976, also by Gerald Genta) or the Vacheron Constantin 222 (1977, by Jorg Hysek). Taste for these designer’s watches is massively growing these last few months.
