Phillips will showcase timepieces from the upcoming The Hong Kong Watch Auction: One on Singapore and followed by Taipei, before the sale on December 1.
Led by Sam Hines and Aurel Bacs, the auctioneer’s inaugural watch sale in Asia takes place on December 1 in Hong Kong, with 357 lots on offer. The Hong Kong Watch Auction: One will take place less than a month after Phillips‘ Geneva auctions, which saw several records set, including that of the most expensive wristwatch ever sold at auction. A significant number of highlights from The Hong Kong Watch Auction: One will be in Singapore and then Taipei, Taiwan. The Singapore preview will be in Windows West on the 20th floor of the Four Seasons Hotel located at 190 Orchard Boulevard. The exhibition is open from 11:00am to 6:30pm on November 14 and 15. And the Taipei leg will be in Residence II on the ground floor of the Grand Hyatt Taipei at 2 Song Shou Road, open from 11:00am to 6:30pm on November 21 and 22. The sale itself takes place in Hong Kong on December 1, at the Four Seasons Hotel, with previews daily on the preceding three days. Auction information and the full catalogue for the Hong Kong sale is also available online.
