Monaco Legends watch auction set to break records

By Staff Writer - January 9, 2019

The watch auction taking place at Monaco Legends Auctions on 14 January could set records, according to GQ Magazine.

A total of 141 lots are up for auction on 14 January and lots are on display both at the auction house and online from 9 January.
