7. Vacheron Constantin rectangular bracelet watch Lord Kalla
Horological complications and auction debuts aside, the Christie’s auction is marked by a series of bejeweled sparkling attractions as well- the jewelry watches. From Rolex to Vacheron Constantin, the list includes a range of names, whose breath taking time pieces have combined horological know how and jewelry design in the most innovative package possible. The spotlight on this category of watches remains undoubtedly on the Vacheron Constantin rectangular bracelet watch-Lord Kalla. Shiny and attractive, the piece is set with 309 diamonds, weighing 55 carats (approx) in total. Rolex, which has featured prime in a majority of Christie’s auctions back through time, brings the next dazzling jeweled watch. Called GMT MASTER II “ICE”, the watch, according to Christie’s sources, is in excellent shape. The Spring sale marks the item’s debut before an auction crowd. Estimated to sell for $80,000-$120,000, the Rolex beauty brings back fond memories of most expensive Rolex watches sold at auctions.
Aside from the important watches section, the Christie’s Hong Kong Spring Sale 2012 will feature works of valuable art. Coming back to watches, the leading auction house, let us inform you, has enjoyed unprecedented leadership in the category for eight long years. And when it comes to Asian markets, Christie’s has always been particularly lucky. They have featured prominent in the list of gale bangers for the most expensive items sold at Asian auctions. Asia, on the other hand, is being seen as home to a new breed of rich and intelligent collectors with a penchant for all things classy and elegant. All aspects considered, the important watches sale can sure be expected to lead the way for more such events in future.
