On Monday November 14th the Geneva important watch sale of Christies will be held at the Hotel Des Bergues. The team of Christie’s did a great job finding some serious rare and nice examples for their sale. Besides the normal offers, Christie’s is honoring the Patek Philippe Nautilus for it’s 40th anniversary with a special sale dedicated to this iconic model designed my master brain Gerald Genta. But before I show you some highlight from that sale, I like to start with the vintage Rolex offers on sale.
