Sale Overview

Watch Video and Press release of The OAK Collection Part I

The Oak Collection is an acronym of ‘One of a Kind’, and a significant number of the watches to be offered here are indeed ‘one of a kind’. Such timepieces are the most eagerly pursued by collectors due to their unavailability to all but the most exalted and loyal of a brand’s clients. This auction provides collectors, and those individuals for whom only the most exclusive artworks and objects are considered, the singular opportunity to possess watches that will not be seen on any other wrist. Moreover, every watch in this extraordinary collection is in truly perfect condition, the majority being either new or virtually unworn and regularly serviced.

In the Oak Collection, each and every watch can be considered a highlight. Of course some pieces stand out even among such distinguished company, one of these is a Patek Philippe reference 1436 Rattrapante split-seconds chronograph with black dial, of which only 59 yellow gold examples are known and only a handful of those sporting the ravishing black dial. More diverse highlights are a remarkable ’new old stock’ Universal ‘Nina Rindt’ chronograph; the Breguet triple calendar chronograph once owned by French actor Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jack Brabham’s Breguet Type XX chronograph of 1959. Awe-inspiring watches by independent makers include Akrivia’s SS AK-06 ‘Cadran Spéciale Bleu’ and Kari Voutilainen’s stainless steel GMT 6 for ‘Only Watch’.

Globally significant and without doubt in a class of its own, the sale of the Oak Collection Part 1 provides collectors, scholars and enthusiasts with the privileged and perhaps once in a lifetime opportunity to view, study and buy unique or ultra-exclusive timepieces from this most carefully assembled of private collections.
