Start Stop Reset – Exquisite chronographs to be offered in Geneva

A chronograph is an essential item in the classic driver’s inventory. On 14 May in Geneva, Phillips will offer 88 exquisite chronographs at its Start Stop Reset sale. These are our favourites…

In the beautifully presented catalogue, you’ll inevitably find brilliant examples of classic chronographs such as the Omega Speedmaster and the Rolex Daytona, in addition to a number of other intriguing – and lesser-seen – pieces. 

While the tropical-dialled 1969  ‘Paul Newman’ Daytona is among the most collectable Rolexes in existence (and at 750,000-1.5m CHF, priced accordingly), there are watches to suit all budgets. We particularly like the PVD-coated Heuer Monaco (est. 25,000-50,000 CHF) and the colourful Tudor ‘Monte Carlo’ (15,000-30,000 CHF) – both timepieces that illustrate the scope of 1970s style. You can find the entire catalogue for Phillips’ Start Stop Reset sale listed in the Classic Driver Market.
