In anticipation of Christie’s 250th anniversary and Christie’s Hong Kong’s 30th anniversary, the Hong Kong watch team has assembled a carefully curated selection of traditional and cutting edge timepieces as a homage to the core values that have governed both Christie’s and the watch industry through the centuries. This sale celebrates tradition and heritage, as illustrated by the unrivaled repertoire of complications from Patek Philippe, while upholding the spirit of innovation and pioneering, as can be seen in the technological advances and designs of independent watchmakers such Richard Mille and Greubel Forsey. Emphasis on artistry and expertise is the essence of the success of Christie’s and the many renowned watch brands by offering the best in the industry. From the dazzling diamond-set Lord Kalla wristwatch, to the amazing Girard Perregaux “Jackpot” timepiece, Harry Winston’s Opus II and III in platinum, and a group of rare and complicated wristwatches from Audemars Piguet as well as prototypes from Jaeger-LeCoultre, these timepieces aim to highlight the exceptional combinations of artistic and mechanical prowess of watchmaking excellence. In addition, as a tribute to 2016, the year of the Monkey, on offer is a Cartier Ballon Bleu wristwatch with a special cloisonné enamel and gem-set dial featuring an adorable monkey amongst green foliage.
