Top Lots from the May 16 Christie’s Rare Watches Auction in Geneva
With barely enough time to clear my head of all the grand steel chronographs on the block at the Phillips Start, Stop, Reset auction this weekend, I soldiered on to yet another important auction preview with the folks from Christie’s. This time around, my inner collector geek faced an even greater challenge. This is not a theme-driven auction, nor does it revolve around any particular brand, era, or genre of any sort. Instead I came face to face and caseback to wrist with some seriously rare pieces of hardware to be left with the same mighty question of what got my heart beating and palms sweating. This time around, there are a couple extra notable pieces that require a mention before we move on to my personal hit list.
