T o coincide with the upcoming Luxury Week at Sotheby’s in Paris, exceptional property from across four sales will go on display at the Bucherer flagship store in the heart of Paris. This innovative partnership is a celebration of the shared values of heritage, trust and expertise and the very latest trends in luxury collecting, spearheaded by two brands with both a legacy of historical excellence and an eye on the future of trends.
The Luxury Week September sale series will present the very finest examples of fine jewelry, fine watches and specially designed pieces. Alongside these more traditional pieces, will be exclusive handbags and sneakers from our fastest-growing luxury categories, forging new paths in the sector and reflecting the most exciting property being brought to market today.
For the occasion, Sotheby’s and Bucherer will extend their partnership, uniting the auctioning world with the luxury business world.
At this point in time, the worldwide demand for second-hand luxury watches is reaching unparalleled levels. Expertise and authenticity – two core values shared by Sotheby’s and Bucherer – have become decisive criteria for these clients. The partnership represents an unprecedented opportunity for collectors seeking to purchase pieces certified by Bucherer.
Some 90 watches presented in the Paris auction were produced by the greatest manufacturers (Breguet, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Cartier and Rolex). Those entrusted by Maison Bucherer have all been authenticated, inspected and certified by the Bucherer experts. A two-year “Bucherer Certified Pre-Owned” warranty is included with the purchase of each one. Highlights from our Fine Watches auction include a yellow gold Royal Oak chronograph by Audemars Piguet and a self-winding wristwatch by Patek Philippe, reference 3945.
Among the leading lots presented at Bucherer are a limited-edition Hermès Birkin Faubourg handbag and an exceptional Lamouche brooch: a one-off featuring kingfisher feathers from a Chinese hairpin dating back from the Qing dynasty and set with a tanzanite cabochon.
Last but not least, aficionados of colored stones will be excited by elegant pieces such as a pendant adorned with an extraordinary emerald of more than ten carats.
