Fine Watches 9–21 December 2021 • 2:00 PM CET • Geneva

S otheby’s is thrilled to announce the December Fine Watches sale, the final sale of the year to take place in Geneva. Whether you are just beginning your collecting journey, or looking to add to a seasoned collection, this sale offers watches extending the full breadth of the horological spectrum including some of the most important brands and desired models in the watch world.



When it comes to the world of luxury watches Patek Philippe holds a weight few others other can, and perhaps even, will. Founded 182 years ago in 1839, the manufacture has dedicated itself to producing only the finest quality timepieces with exquisite attention to detail. The house epitomises luxury not only through its demonstrable skill and craftsmanship but also through its underratedness.


Started in 1848 Omega is renowned the world over as a manufacture of the highest quality. Testament to its excellence Omega holds many accolades though few surpass the production of watches for NASA’s space missions, including Apollo 11 the first men to land on the moon, both of whom were wearing Omega Speedmasters. From astronauts to secret agents, Omega is also the watch of choice for James Bond 007 who has, since 1995, worn the brand’s well known Seamaster.


Perhaps one of the most interesting elements of horology is that it represents an area of continual development, striving constantly to improve and in so doing discovering things along the way. The innovation that has manifested from this of course takes many shapes but one of which are complications.

Now complications take many forms too, some improve accuracy, some improve functionality and others convey startling levels of information. They engage the wearer, they are playful and interesting to observe, and beyond this they demonstrate an astounding level technical prowess. This sale is delighted to showcase a host of different complications from tourbillon to chronographs to automaton, perpetual calendars and power reserve indications.
