Monaco Legends watch auction set to break records

Monaco Legends watch auction items - Jan 2019

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

In its first big auction of 2019, the auction house offers many unique timepieces. The style magazine says “January has traditionally been a fallow month in the world of high-end auctions, not least because many of the world’s super-rich are busy in their favourite alpine playgrounds or soaking-up some winter sun.

“But now that the internet has made it easy to view lots online and bid ‘any time, any place, anywhere’ the importance of when a sale is held and its ‘live’ location is becoming increasingly irrelevant.”

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.
