Sale Overview

Christie’s Hong Kong is proud to present the inaugural international watch auction of the 2023 season. This meticulously curated online sale offers timepieces by the world’s most illustrious watchmaking brands including Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, Rolex and Cartier. It will impress both the seasoned collector and new private buyer with not only the sheer variety of models but also the impressive condition of most of the watches. Entitled ‘Top of The Time’, this auction showcases some truly world-class complicated modern wristwatch models of the very highest caliber. Among these incredible timepieces are two of Patek Philippe’s greatest masterpieces, each one of the five most complicated wristwatches ever made by the company – the incomparable and magnificent 12-complication reference 6002G ‘Sky Moon Tourbillon’ with blue champlevé and cloisonné enamel dial; and the exceptional self-winding ‘Grande Complication’ reference 5208 minute repeater single-button chronograph with perpetual calendar. Regarded as one of the most formidable achievements in modern watchmaking, the ‘Sky Moon Tourbillon’ has been described as representing the culmination and ultimate realization of over 400 years of watchmaking knowledge, perfectly capturing the enduring relationship between humans, the Earth and the Universe. Both reference 6002G and reference 5208 are virtually impossible to obtain on the open market and almost never seen at auction. We are delighted to be able to offer to international clients and collectors not only both of these superb Patek Philippe Grande Complication models but also a fantastic selection of exquisite rarities from the other great manufacturers of the watchmaker’s art.
