Event Date6 November 2022 | Live auction 21862
This remarkable auction of Legendary and Unique Watches is an entirely unique phenomenon. It represents unquestionably the most important grouping of significant timepieces from many of the great watchmakers and brands over the past 30 years including momentous historic landmarks of, among others, Richard Mille, François-Paul Journe, Girard-Perregaux and Audemars Piguet.
The overwhelming theme of the auction is the world of high performance motor racing, in particular Ferrari and Formula One. Indeed, many of the watches directly reflect the world of motorsport and have direct links to the great names in Formula One, including Michael Schumacher. The selection is particularly rich in unique pieces and prototypes, often specially made and dedicated by the makers themselves. One of the chief glories of this auction is one of the most important groups of Richard Mille early prototype wristwatches ever offered at auction, many of which have never been seen publicly before.
Collectors have the unique opportunity to acquire awe-inspiring entirely one-off timepieces from the great watch houses, many with unbeatable and spectacular provenances.
