Clocks, Marine Chronometers & Barometers

English | 繁體中文

Christie's is the world's premier auction house for antique clocks. We have been selling clocks for over 200 years, with renown collections sold from; The Duke of Sussex (1843), Courtenay Ilbert (1958, sold to the British Museum), Samuel Messer (1991); Chinese market clocks from the Nezu Museum (2008, establishing a world record for a clock sale of £18 million), and the Abbott Guggenheim Collection of Renaissance clocks (2015).

Christie's Clock department is based in London and with specialists in New York, Paris, Amsterdam and Zurich. Clocks are sold in auctions around the world and throughout the year, generally in furniture and decorative arts sales. Christie’s has a truly global reach and markets to an increasing international clientele coming from Asia, the Middle East, South America and Russia to supplement established and emerging clients from the traditional centres of Europe and North America. From highly decorative works of art to precision timekeepers, the variety is huge and although we sometimes sell clocks worth hundreds of thousands - even millions - of pounds, estimates can start from £500.

If you would like to receive a confidential valuation of your clock or to discuss consignment to a forthcoming auction, please contact a specialist in your area as listed below or request an Auction Estimate online. Christie’s is also able to offer works in a private treaty sale, offering clients maximum discretion away from the saleroom.
