It's the time of year when the auction houses are getting all their timepieces prepared for the start of an exciting season.
We've said it here many times before, vintage watches — and gently used newer, collectible watches — hold their value and even gain in value. The auctions are evidence of that. In fact, this fall, we will see top lots coming from Christie's, Sotheby's, Antiquorum and Phillips Auction houses, as well as from a few smaller auctioneers.
Antiquorum Auctioneers has just announced its October sale of “Important Modern & Vintage Timepieces” to be held on October 8th at The Roosevelt Hotel in New York City. There will be 324 outstanding timepieces up for bid, including an impressive selection of A. Lange & Sohne, Patek Philippe and Rolex watches, as well as other prestigious brands, such as Audemars Piguet, Girard-Perregaux and Jaeger-LeCoultre. Also represented will be a host of very unusual vintage names.
Phillips in Association with Bacs & Russo has also announced its November sale: FOUR, which sees a host of important brands up for sale, including several watches that have never sold at auction before. We will keep you posted of auction results, but want to remind our watch lovers that a watch can be a true investment item.
Stop in any time to talk to us about vintage timepieces.
