Christie’s New York has announced an exceptional watches auction which features lots with estimates in excess of $1m.

Set to be hosted on December 6, the auction offers a curated selection of 160 lots which will be predominantly fresh to market.

The auction will include a number of high-end watches, including a Rolex 18k Gold Automatic Triple Calendar Wristwatch estimated to go for $1-2m.

Patek Philippe pieces will also be among the more expensive pieces to go under the hammer, most notably a Graves-Fullerton 3448Jm which is expected to go for around $150,000, formerly owned by the Grandson of Henry Graves.
