Curated by a private distinguished collector with a discerning eye for excellence and the ability to acquire the rarest watches, The Kairos Collection is the fruit of years of dedicated focus and a passion for the most prestigious of provenances, with every single timepiece in absolutely pristine condition. This extraordinary collection of 128 contemporary Patek Philippe timepieces will be offered by Christie's in three parts during the spring 2022 live auction calendar.

On May 9th, 30 pieces will be presented in Geneva as Part I, with highlights including fabled grand complications such as a Ref. 5959R-001 Split-Seconds Chronograph in rose gold with black dial and a Ref. 5074R-001 Minute Repeater Perpetual Calendar in the same livery.

On May 24th, Christie’s Hong Kong will present a further 30 lots as Part II, with similarly sought-after standouts, including a platinum Ref. 5951P-012 Perpetual Calendar Split-Seconds Chronograph and a Minute Repeater Ref. 5078R-001 in rose gold.

On June 8th, the remaining 68 timepieces of the Kairos Collection will be presented at Christie's Rockefeller Center salerooms in New York as Part III, showcasing the modern evolution of Perpetual Calendar Chronographs, Split-Chronographs, Métiers d'Art artisanal techniques, World Time references and Complications – and not to be missed highlights that include several Tiffany & Co. dual-signature dials.

Impeccable Provenance, Masterful Curation, Flawless Condition

One might imagine entering a Salon at the prestigious Maison itself in Geneva: From a Ref. 5227J Calatrava to the gamut of Métiers d'Art techniques – from cloisonné to marquetry – to chiming complications and quite a few extremely rare exemplars, such as a stainless-steel Ref. 5950/1A-010 Split-Seconds Chronograph with the blue dial, The Kairos Collection recounts a thrilling narrative of contemporary watchmaking at the highest level of excellence. Each watch of The Kairos Collection is accompanied by its original Certificate of Origin and all associated product literature, presentation box and outer packaging. Each watch was stored in a transparent, protective clamshell-shaped box to both preserve its original condition and allow its unencumbered beholding.

Open to the public, these special events will offer up close views to a rare constellation of the finest modern watchmaking by Patek Philippe. The tour is scheduled from April 5-8 at London, April 30-May 11 at New York, May 6-8 in Geneva, May 13-16 at Dubai, May 15-18 at Hong Kong, May 21-24 again at Hong Kong, May 24-26 at San Francisco and finally June 3-7 at New York.
