Sincere thanks to the amazing team at Phillips and all the enthusiastic bidders.”

While Paul Boutros, Head of Phillips Watches, Americas, added: “Phillips IAWBR was honored and proud to support HSNY’s annual charity auction. Hundreds of clients from all around the world showed interest in the seven timepieces generously donated by leading brands and dealers.
