At Christie’s, we recognize that collectors are often looking for a specific watch, or are seeking to buy or sell a timepiece outside of the auction season. Christie’s Private Sales is a tailored and bespoke process through which our dedicated team of watch specialists work one-on-one with you to either source or sell timepieces in the strictest confidence, utilizing our global network of collectors and dealer relationships.
Christie’s specialists are available for appointments and hold private selling exhibitions worldwide, displaying a wide selection of the finest vintage and modern timepieces from Patek Philippe, Rolex, Audemars Piguet and Vacheron Constantin, among others.
We invite you to contact us for confidential discussions should you wish to purchase a specific timepiece, or sell watches through our Watches Private Sales team.
