Christie’s Dubai March Sales bring together two significant auctions: Important Watches and Middle Eastern Modern & Contemporary Art. Leading the season are a possibly unique steel Rolex ref. 4500 tropical dial with a Joyería Riviera signature and a superb group of oil paintings and drawings by Ramsès Younan. Other highlights include contemporary minute repeaters, rare grand complications, a 1964 Rolex Daytona 6241 with the coveted cherry logo and exceptional works by Nabil Nahas and Farhad Moshiri.
Ahead of the sales, a selection of fine timepieces will travel to Mumbai, Singapore and Bangkok before returning to our Dubai saleroom at the Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel, with viewing open from 19–23 March. We look forward to welcoming you to our global previews and auctions, to be held on 22 and 23 March.
