Phillips Watch Department will be holding a special sale in Geneva on May 14 2015. The title of the auction is Start – Stop – Reset The spirit was to propose a thematic on stainless steel chronographs, knowing that every kind of chronograph is worthy of interest (whether it is worth 1000, 10’000 or 1’000’000 CHF)
The approach of PHILLIPS in that matter is to consider every interesting timepiece and dedicate the same level of interest to every one – guarantying most of all an uncompromising approach to quality (understand condition, provenance) – the aim is to open the world of collecting to a wide audience, and to consider particularly the level of interest and passion, of the buyer but the seller as well!
Start, stop, reset is also an oblique reference to the world of sports, which has a lot in common with Phillips’ core values such as : healthy competition, expertise, uncompromising approach to optimal results, performance, team spirit!
At the rostrum will be the auction maestro Aurel Bacs.
