London & New York, 19 November – 13 December



Christie’s is the destination for luxury this season, with a series of auctions taking place in New York. Highlights include rare timepieces formerly owned by writer Ernest Hemingway and astronaut Wally M. Shirra, a collection of Château Lafite-Rothschild, spanning vintages 1960 through 2016 in various formats, and jewels from the Rothschild Family. From the largest selection of Supreme skateboards and accessories to ever come to Christie’s to ‘The DuPont Ruby’ and ‘The DuPont Emerald’ from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, stunning examples will merge in a global showcase from the Jewellery, Watch, Wine and Handbags & Accessories departments.

We welcome you to our viewing beginning 6 December in New York.
