Sotheby’s Watches department offers the finest timepieces from the 16th to the 21st centuries, including pocket watches, wristwatches, tourbillons and perpetual calendars.

Sotheby's Watch auctions showcase the thriving international nature of this category. Our international team has cultivated strong relationships with the world’s most active collectors and connoisseurs, and this is reflected in the wide-ranging and intense global presence at our sales; 1,368 bidders from 66 countries have enthusiastically participated in recent seasons.

Our specialists’ combined knowledge and experience is unparalleled in the category and the department has consistently achieved benchmark prices, such as the auction record for any watch -- over $11 million for Patek Philippe's no.198.385 the Henry Graves Supercomplication. In June 2012, we set a record once again with a watch owned by Henry Graves Jr. in the Graves Fullerton Collection sale when an 18k Yellow Gold Minute Repeating Wristwatch by Patek Philippe achieved nearly $3 million. Sotheby's has also offered for sale some of the most significant collections of horology, including the most important collection ever to appear at auction: Masterpieces from the Time Museum, which realised $58.6 million.

Sotheby’s Geneva generated significant interest from across the world in 2013, when the IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Edition “Le Petit Prince” sold for CHF 173,000 ($189,600) with the entire proceeds from the sale benefitting the Antoine de Saint Exupery Foundation to contribute to the construction of a school in Cambodia.

Auctions are held in London, New York, Geneva and Hong Kong.
