Our favourites of the Antiquorum watch auction, Geneva

More than 500 watches make up the large Antiquorum auction on 10 May 2015 in Geneva, ranging from sinfully expensive collectables to affordable insider tip-offs. We reveal the watches we would choose…

It almost goes without saying that Antiquorum Geneva will offer the obligatory Rolex Daytona ‘Paul Newman’, for an estimated 200,000 to 300,000 Swiss Francs. The most expensive watch of the auction, a Patek Philippe Ref. 2499 / 100 from the early 1980s, is estimated at 300,000 to 500,000 CHF. Most of the timepieces in the catalogue, however, sit below the magical 10,000 CHF mark, and there are many unusual specimens which might also be of interest to beginners. How about a Rolex in the style of the Football Club of Tijuana? Or the Jaeger-LeCoultre, which once graced the wrist of General Douglas MacArthur? See all 505 auction lots in the Classic Driver Market.
