ROLEX 1930s-2010s

The first dedicated Rolex auction session

 116 lots – 55 different references – retracing watchmaking at its best

« Rolex stands for exploration, by reaching the limits of this planet, by exploring the deepest and highest points, the coldest and hottest spots, it translates to speed from 1 horse power to 500+ as well as to cultural activities. But most importantly, Rolex stands for precision in a timeless design on which people have relied on since 1905. Reasons enough to celebrate this timepiece in all its facettes by staging the first ever stand-alone Rolex auction afternoon.»

Christie’s Geneva will dedicate the afternoon session of its Important Watches auction on 15 May entirely to Rolex by offering 116 watches of 55 different references, retracing the history of this watchmaker from the 1930s to the latest models introduced to the market.

This is the largest gathering of Rolex timepieces any auction house has ever offered in one single afternoon, with estimates ranging from CHF/US$2,000 to CHF/US$ 500,000 and we are delighted to take young as well as established collectors and watch enthusiasts on a discovery tour:
