Christie’s announces highlights included in the Rare Watches Auction

On 13 May 2019, Christie’s will be holding the Rare Watches auction at the Four Seasons des Bergues in Geneva. Offering 254 watches spanning the early 19th century to the present day, the majority of timepieces have been consigned by private collectors, mainly from Europe. With estimates ranging from CHF2,000 to CHF1,000,000 the sale is expected to realise in the region of CHF 12 Million. The top lot of the sale, with an estimate of CHF1,000,000 to CHF2,000,000, is the exceptional pink gold Rolex reference 6062 “Stelline” triple calendar with moon phase and, most notably, the celebrated star dial. What makes this watch so special is the design and the fact that the production for the reference was extremely limited – scholars estimate the number to be around 50 cased in pink gold, however only around 10 featuring this particular star dial.
