A HISTORY OF EXCELLENCE
Christie’s is honored to have been associated with some of the finest watch sales throughout the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, with many notable auctions within the last decade, including the Patek Philippe 175th Anniversary Sale in 2014, the Gordon Bethune Collection in 2012, the Millennium Collection in 2010 and A Connoisseur’s Vision, which was sold over a series of auctions from 2009–2010.

CONNECT WITH US: BUYING AND SELLING OPPORTUNITIES AROUND THE WORLD
With sales in Dubai, Geneva, Hong Kong, New York and Shanghai, Christie’s auctions provide unique opportunities for both buyers and sellers; buyers have the opportunity to acquire timepieces sourced from every corner of the globe, while sellers benefit from our auctions’ ability to command the attention of the world’s top collectors. In advance of the auctions, Christie’s produces exceptionally well-researched catalogues featuring every timepiece in the sale, in addition to exhibitions where individuals can examine and try on a wide range of watches.
At Christie’s, we recognize that collectors are often looking for a specific watch, or are seeking to sell a timepiece outside of the auction timeline. With Christie’s Private Sales, our dedicated team of watch specialists can work with you to either source or sell timepieces in the strictest confidence utilizing our global network of collectors.
