In association with Bacs & Russo, Phillips announced details of their inaugural auctions dedicated to fine collectors’ watches that will take place on the evenings of 9 and 10 May 2015 at Hôtel La Réserve, Geneva. Highlights from the auctions will be available to view in Hong Kong (3 to 6 April), New York (10 to 14 April) and London (22 to 26 April) prior to the pre-sale exhibitions in Geneva (7 to 10 May).
The auction on Saturday 9 May is dedicated to Rolex’s most prestigious model, the Day 4 Date, and will offer 60 of the rarest examples, including unique models and watches with royal provenance, all carefully selected with the assistance of Pucci Papaleo, among the world’s most renowned Rolex scholars. The auction on Sunday 10 May will offer approximately 160 watches of the highest quality, including exceptionally rare examples and timepieces with fascinating histories.
The outstanding highlight is a particularly rare and desirable Patek Philippe stainless steel single button chronograph wristwatch, one of only two of ever made; the other is now a highlight of the Patek Philippe Museum
(estimate: Sfr.1,000,000 to 2,000,000).
Phillips is also pleased to announce the upcoming launch of a micro-site dedicated to watches where collectors and enthusiasts can register for updates and learn about our watches, news and results: www.phillipswatches.com
