Very interesting inaugural sale Phillips is coming up at their first watch auction in Geneva, May 10th 2015. When you browse their virgin catalogue you will notice it’s pretty impressive to say the least. Lot’s of rare and special Rolex, Patek Philippe and others. To find the necessary pieces is already difficult, to find them in great condition is ultra rare and to find them for sale is even harder I can tell you. Without having the offered lots inspected up close, the images Buddy Paul Boutros made speak for them selves, not photoshopped or colored afterwards, pure as the watches are, that is the way to do it, well done team Phillips, my compliments! Watch the whole catalogue over here up close.
A ultra rare Albino Daytona, estimated € 500.000 – 1 million, formally owned by Eric Clapton.

Download your Phillips Catalogue over here and enjoy all offered lots, their description and estimate. I’m looking forward in seeing all friends, collectors and dealers again in Geneva. It looks like the vintage watch market is having a high quality new auction house rumbling during the Geneva watch sales. Let’s wait and see what Christie’s, Sotheby’s and Antiquorum has to offer us quality wise. Check out the micro site that just went online at www.phillipswatches.com…

Take your time to read Mr. Bacs introduction and mission statement of the Phillips watch auctions. The market is more then ready for top quality no matter the importance of the reference, many collectors are interested to buy honest and unrestored original examples now so much knowledge has been shared.
