Sacha Davidoff's Preview from the Geneva Auctions - PART IICHRISTIE'S GENEVA AUCTIONFollowing my writeup on the Phillips watch auctions the other day, my cousin (Roy) and I took a look at Christie's upcoming auction catalog and had the pleasure of viewing the replica watches with Thomas Perrazi in Geneva. Thomas along with the team have focused on vintage versus modern in recent auctions carrying out a global trend from collectors. With regards to the team, additionally we had the pleasure of seeing Marie Stauffer at Christie's as this lady has just moved over from Sotheby's (component of a pretty common bet on musical chairs among auction houses). In addition to Sabine, Marcello and Richard, the Christie's Geneva watch department team is solid and contains put together a terrific catalog with a large selection of brands and models. On the side note, we discovered the modern Christie's watch department policy that lots estimated under 10'000 Swiss Francs are automatically without reserve since 2016. In the event anyone was wondering why dozens of lots come in red.RARE WATCHES INCLUDING IMPORTANT PRIVATE COLLECTIONSThe Christie's watch auction, that can position on Monday May 16th in Geneva, includes 276 lots. It is deemed an ideal size for any catalog simply because it keeps the balance between your high-end 'record setters' as well as the more democratic pieces we could imagine on our wrists. Outside the 276 lots, there are 70 Rolexes, 47 Patek Philippe and 25 Omegas, this means the other one half of the catalog offers variety. Variety is fantastic!Small dedicated sections for brands like Piaget, Heuer, Longines, Breguet and Omega Speedmasters are neatly organized to make browsing a pleasure solid gold rolex . Inside catalog, you can also find two major private collections mentioned previously from the title in the auction. One is Breguet collection including 6 important pieces from the local private collector and the other can be a Rolex sports model & Patek Philippe collection. Moreover, we usually don't concentrate on pocket replica watches, just one Breguet pocket watch, which coincidentally is just not portion of the private collection lots, but alternatively excellent timing around the seller's part, stood out to all of us as particularly stunning: Lot 121, an 'osmior' case art deco jumping hour pocket watch which has a rich provenance. Osmior can be a term to have an antique gold alloy containing osmium and which shares much the same aesthetic to platinum.Here are a few from the interesting wristreplica watches we enjoyed and chose to share:LOT #42 Rolex 5512 Explorer Dial, 1962As with all brands using radium dials in the 1950's, the AEC (Atom Energy Comission) began imposing norms for acceptable radiation levels noisy . 1960's. In the transition from radium to tritium, in 1962, Rolex dials' luminous material was adapted with lower radiation along an 'exclamation mark' lume plot to signal this alteration. Afterwards, dials with even lower radiation levels only using tritium were marked using an underline to signal the lack of radium in 1963-1964. Then, dials with T stamped in it replaced the old SWISS only dials entirely with out longer needed the underline. With regards to a pointy crown guard 5512 with the Explorer dial is definitely rare, the exclamation mark indication causes it to become also. We know there are a few difficulty with this watch, however it has been through service many times whilst still being looks just the thing for wear and tear.Estimate CHF 75,000 - 120,000 LOT #91 Rolex 6543 Milgauss, 1955We are most informed about the 6541 Milgauss reference from the 50's, but this rare 6543 reference incorporates a different case construction with the integrated anti-magnetic caseback in comparison to the separate soft metal cover perfectly located at the 6541. Sadly, no lightning hand for this reference either. Having only seen most of these during our time here on this planet, that it was a nice surprise to view one out of this auction. Again, we can easily speculate about the information the bezel as well as the caseback, etc., nevertheless it includes a Rolex service invoice and we as if it.Estimate CHF 80,000 - 140,000 LOT #131Breguet Triple Date Moonphase, 1952It is smart which i have not had one of these simple in this little wrist because, in accordance with the records, only about 5 were ever made. The problem is superb, the triple matching number (No 1039) on the dial, case and movement is astounding and most importantly, it's really a stunning watch on the wrist. Thinking about the rarity of Breguet complicated wristreplica watches versus Patek, Vacheron and AP, look for this to become a fascinating and engaging vintage wristwatch.Estimate CHF 15,000 - 25,000 LOT #171Patek Philippe 530 signed Astrua Torino, 1938There is really a lot of chatter about this watch and particularly stirred in the debate on the distinction redone and restored. So, here's the sale: You can find 10 known Patek Phillipe 530 chronographs in steel. The sphere dial version, which curiously has .5mm larger case at 36.5mm, makes up only 3 of those known examples. Sadly, all 3, for example the one in this sale also have some work completed to their dials. The initial, that has been last seen at Sotheby's during the past year experienced a dial entirely restored by Patek. In November 2014, for the Patek 175 sale, Christie's auctioned one off that has a redone dial that's even also damaged. This current example may be the only known metal 530 sector dial having a retailer signature (double signed) Astrua Torino, an Italian retailer and t is also the earliest from the three known to be produced. The question is, then, once we every other watch expert keep saying "condition, condition, condition" how come these rare pieces look like exempt? They are certainly not. Appears to be original, pristine and untouched 530 in steel with sector dial surfaces (we presume there are several higher productivity there somewhere) it will be worth considerably more.Estimate CHF 500,000 - 800,000 LOT #203Patek Philippe 3574 Blue Dial, 1974I imagine you didn't expect this to be our picks, but may it's the overlooked watch which might be by far the most charming. This stainless-steel hand-wound Patek is possibly unique which consists of blue dial with 'waffle' engraved hour markers and hand-engraved hands. They assert 'possibly unique' because it is alone recognized to date using this type of configuration, but maybe a different one can come up throughout the next blue moon. watches The watch comes with original papers from Japan and this also an excellent package on an interesting and rare wristwatch which has a relatively fair estimate.Estimate CHF 5,000 - 8,000 LOT #222Longines 5415 Two Tone Dial 13ZN, 1948A nice 37.5mm steel Longines 13ZN flyback chronograph is now harder to get than the usual would think. Of course this case has a compressor snap back plus the screw down version is a lot more preferred, the steel case, good diameter, great condition and beautiful movement are typically here. With the time period and the quality, it's no surprise that these Longines chronographs continually go through the roof. Competition among buyers for vintage steel chronographs gets fierce, especially Longines.Estimate CHF 20,000 - 30,000 LOT #233Omega Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz, 1976We did our very best and keep our promise not to mention Speedmasters, but promises are meant to be broken. The historic and successful docking on the Apollo & Soyuz spacecrafts in 1975 marked get rid of the Space Race between rival nations. Per year later, in 1976, Omega released a commemorative special for this event to the Italian market. This has been the initial stainless numbered edition released by Omega and also the just one single ever produced that does not mention Speedmaster about the dial. This limited edition features a special commemorative case back, unique wider 5.5mm pushers (rather than 5mm usually) as well as an Omega 'Oyster' style bracelet reference 1168/633. Overall, a great deal interesting details make this a wonderful collectible!It is just a special and rare watch and thus, very few appear on the market, specially in original condition and quiet a couple of collectors are trying to find the irreplaceable 5.5mm pushers. The caseback was polished and small selection of was very hard to see, this is why it isn't mentioned inside catalog. My pal and i also investigated with the kit of gadgets and both agreed it is number 103.Estimate CHF 20,000 - 30,000 A big Many thanks to Sacha Davidoff for contributing his thoughts on the upcoming Geneva auctions this month. high quality swiss replica watches We used his name within the title of his article (he didn't do this himself) to produce his mom even more proud (she complained about the credits when i was in a smaller font in the earlier article).Click here for the Christie's website
