Yesterday, our own Cara Barrett joined watch auction impresario and H10 alum Aurel Bacs for a live Zoom webinar covering some of the most exciting lots at the upcoming Phillips Geneva Watch Auction: XI. We’ve gone ahead and saved the video from the virtual event so that you can check it out here today.
This weekend’s Phillips Geneva Watch Auction: XI has some genuine heavy hitters of its own, including pieces owned by another H10 alum, Jean-Claude Biver, which you might just recall from his appearance on Talking Watches. Cara and Aurel walk through these and several other of the auction’s highlights, among them not one but two Explorer-dial Submariners. One is a ref. 6200 with a pretty incredible story behind it. You may remember when an example of this grail Sub appeared on Talking Watches 2 with John Mayer.
If you weren’t able to join the webinar live, we think you’ll really enjoy the video – lots of wonderful insights into watch collecting, fascinating answers to questions from readers (including hints on spotting fake tropical dials), and a ton of passion for watches and watchmaking from the guests.
The Phillips Geneva Watch Auction: X1 will take place at 2 PM CET (8 AM New York Time) June 27 and 28. For more information and to follow the auction, visit Phillips.
