Watches and Pocket Watches

The wristwatches auctions, organised in two different monographic sales every year, are linked to a sector of great interest to Cambi Auction House. And it is no coincidence that the sales of collectible and luxury wristwatches have given us great satisfaction in the past years. The watch sector is one that has seen a growing and marked increase for over a decade.

Created to meet the needs and requests of the numerous collectors of rare, vintage and collectible luxury watches, the Department that organises the auctions of wrist and pocket watches manages to win over fans of this sector who thus transform their passion for watches into a real and important investment. It is precisely on the basis of these highly profitable investments that a new figure is born - the collector investor, or rather the highly experienced collector. The passion for watches is therefore intertwined with the strong competence and knowledge of watches accumulated over the years, which allows investors who are passionate about luxury watches to increase their earnings in a truly exceptional way. Undisputed icons of style and concentrates of elegance and distinction, luxury watches thrill and very often represent objects of men's desire.

Our watches sales manage to fulfil the dream of owning a particular collectible watch that sometimes lasts for years, a tangible reality.
The pocket watch has created a rather niche market suited to a more classical type of watch lovers and collectionists that wish to own an object that has become a rarity, often relegated to formal occasions.

The catalogues of luxury watch auctions are variegated selections of rare and exceptional pieces, rich in men's and women's watches that bear the signature of prestigious brands, but also include affordable pieces. The latter are, in fact, perfect objects for those who do not wish to invest large sums of money to start their own watch collection or, why not, buy the watch they have dreamt of for a long time. The great attention to the selection of watches included in the catalogues makes each watch auction organised by Cambi Auction House a real event for the sector, awaited by collectors, enthusiasts and investors of collectible chronographs.

Certainly, some brands are more sought after and appreciated by collectors, especially names as Rolex, Vacheron & Constantin, Patek Philippe, Omega, Jaeger leCoultre, Baume & Mercier, Zenith, Chopard, Bulgari, Cartier, Audemars Piguet, Panerai, Longines, Omega, Heuer , IWC and many others.
Over the last few years, Cambi has recorded numerous and important sales in the watch auction sector, including the very refined Patek Philippe in platinum embellished with diamonds, never worn and still sealed, sold at the end of 2019 for € 143,850, the rare example Rolex Oyster Superlative Chronometer from 1986 ref. 6265/8 Daytona in 18k gold with CRS caseback, sold for € 93,850, and again the Patek Philippe with rose gold case and printed leather strap Ref 5970 R - 001 sold for € 95,000.

From the watch auctions organised in recent years by Cambi Casa d’Aste there are also some important sales of pocket watches such as an Audemars Piguet in 18K rose gold sold in 2015 for € 106,350.
