Passion for Time - An Important Private Collection of Watches and Timepieces

Sale Overview

Christie’s reputation for presenting the most spectacular single-owner private collections of watches in the world is second to none. It is therefore a great honour for Christie’s Geneva to continue this tradition by presenting to international clients and collectors this most amazing and diverse single-owner collection of the finest watches, jewels, and objets d’art. Formed over the past 40 years, this awe-inspiring collection pays tribute to the passion, dedication and determination of one discerning collector from the Sultanate of Oman, Mohammed Zaman.

Noted for his exquisite taste and unerring eye for choosing the very best watches in every category, Mohammed Zaman has built up an extraordinary and enviable private collection of some of the world’s rarest and most complicated timepieces. At one time boasting over five hundred watches, the collection has been distilled and refined over the last decade so that today, it is a formidable assembly of two-hundred-and-fifty-horological masterpieces representing the very best of the best. Among them are watches that have an almost mythical status, pieces that few collectors have ever had the privilege to see or the chance to acquire, it is even more remarkable to find a gathering such phenomenal rarities in one place at one time. Globally significant and without doubt in a class of its own, the sale of Mohammed Zaman’s collection provides collectors, scholars and enthusiasts with the privileged and perhaps once in a lifetime opportunity to view, to study and to buy unique or ultra-exclusive timepieces from this most carefully assembled and curated of private collections. A dedicated online auction of a further selection of watches from the collection is available for bidding from 721 November and is also anticipated with great excitement.
