Chrono24, World’s most visited and popular market platform for luxury watches with over 50 million page views per month and Auctionata – who offer live stream auctioning of objects via internet in HD quality to bidders all over the world – are about to auction 29 very exclusive tourbillon timepieces. On November 8th at 6pm CET, 25 lots – 29 timepieces in total – are being offered live from the auction room in Berlin.
29 tourbillon watches from brands a Breguet, Cartier, Girard-Perregaux, Glashutte Original, IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Vacheron Constantin, Zenith and some more are being offered on the special website of Chrono24 and Auctionata (click here) where you can find all their details, starting bids and estimates.
Our personal favorite timepieces are the Breguet Brevet du 7 Messidor An 9 „Tourbillon Nr. 033“, Ref. 3450 from ca.1995 with an estimate price of 30.000 Euro (excluding additional auction costs). We think that this 30K Euro is on the low side for this 18ct red gold and platinum cased tourbillon piece.
Another favorite is this Girard-Perregaux Bi-Axial Tourbillon from 2010. This 18ct red gold watch has a beautiful combination of brushed visible bridges and bezel and polished parts such as the lugs and hands of the watch. The starting bid is set to 90.000 Euro and the estimate is 180.000 Euro (excluding additional auction costs).
This auction offers a 25 year guarantee on the authenticity of the pieces being auctioned. This would have saved a lot of people in the past buying expensive pieces from certain other auction houses. A valuable guarantee in our opinion. If you want to participate in this auction, you can use the internet to bid on the watches but also ‘old fashioned’ methods like telephone or by live presence are possible of course.
The auction is only 8 days away from now, so have a look at the official Chrono24 & Auctionata ‘The Fascination of Tourbillon‘ website for more information.
