We are delighted to offer an appealing selection of important and interesting timepieces on 15 November in Geneva. The selection features a large variety of watches from makers such as Patek Philippe, Rolex and Audemars Piguet to name but a few. Highlights include an important and rare yellow gold wristwatch by Patek Philippe, ref. 2438-1. It is one of the most iconic and sought-after pieces ever created by the celebrated manufacturer, as it is the first water-resistant perpetual calendar wristwatch produced in series by any watchmaking company. Furthermore, we are excited to offer a selection of pieces from a private collection which features attractive and exciting watches.
