Dear Sabine Kegel just emailed me to inform all of you that the Christie’s Geneva Watch Auction for May 11th 2015 is online now. You can view all offered lots in detail over here. To start with Patek Philippe this time, there is a great White gold 3448, a NOS ( New Old Stock) ref 2499/100 and a probably unique platinum with diamond Nautilus. Then from the modern pieces, a white dialed Sky Moon with an estimate around 1 million euro. Then the top lots on vintage Rolex are the steel Oyster Paul Newman 6263, the crisp gold monobloc 3525, the Qaboos Seadweller 1665, Kampfschimmer 3646, several Comex and Military, a tropical bakelite GMT Master 6542 and many more you can see already down here. I’m looking forward as always to examine the offered lots in detail during the preview and meeting up with the many watch friends that are always in Geneva during the auctions!

Military Ref 5513 is strongly estimated euro 85-130.000. These references have gotten a boast during last auctions, something we don’t see in the open market imho. Let’s wait and see what this one will go for.
