Highlights from the upcoming May watch auctions in Geneva

In the coming days Geneva will host a number of important auctions of fine timepieces from Christie's, Phillips and Sotheby's.

The number of lots is huge so here we can only highlight a few pieces - not necessarily the most important - and provide you with the links to the detailed on-line catalogue of each auction.


On May 12, Phillips will hold Daytona Ultimatum, a thematic sale offering 32 very rare Rolex Daytonas , including a vintage white gold Cosmograph Daytona, reference 6265, also known as “The Unicorn” for being the only known Cosmograph Daytona cased in white precious metal.


Rolex Daytona 6265 "The Unicorn" on sale at the Daytona Ultimatum Geneva watch auction

This rare model was manufactured in 1970 and delivered in 1971, made upon special order for a German retailer. The crown, which is a different colour to the case and pushers, is made from stainless steel, not gold. The bracelet is not the original one.

Expected to make in excess of Swiss Francs 3 Million, this Daytona will be sold for the benefit of Children Action, a foundation dedicated to helping the lives of youth around the world. Suggested reading: "The history of the Rolex Daytona".
