Christie’s presents the Geneva Luxury Sales (27 October-19 November 2020), a season composed of live and online auctions, featuring three Jewels auctions, one Watches sale and a Rare and Fine Wines auction. Over 1400 lots will be available via both of our sales channels as well as a selection of international upcoming luxury sales highlights will be on preview in Geneva. The public preview (7-8- 9-10 November), as well as the live auctions (9-10 November), will take place at the Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues.

Join Christie’s Jewellery, Watches and Wine specialists on 5 November at 4.00pm CET / 3.00pm GMT / 10.00am EDT during a one hour zoominar, as they explore the history of celebrated 1970s jewellery designs, identify the most iconic watch inventions from the decade, as well as discussing the most collectible wines from this period (invitation to follow).

Magnificent Jewels 10 November Live Auction

Leading the Magnificent Jewels auction are a wide selection of exceptional diamonds and coloured stones ranging from 1 to over 100 carats; including a rare 3.96 carat Fancy Deep Blue diamond, a superb 28.88 carat Fancy Vivid Yellow diamond and an exceptional 107.46 carat Fancy Yellow diamond brooch, by Graff. 

The auction features a curated selection of historic and modern jewellery from all periods as well as the most famous jewellery houses such as Boivin, Boucheron, Bulgari, Cartier, JAR, Van Cleef & Arpels and many more. 

Christie’s is delighted to present the Estate of Mireille and James Levy consisting of more than 60 jewels. Over the course of several decades, the couple acquired jewels that Mrs Levy enjoyed wearing regularly, from a gala in New York to a wedding in Italy. Mrs Levy’s collection showcases the best Maisons around the world, from David Webb and Harry Winston in New York to mystery-set jewels by Van Cleef & Arpels, as well as avant-garde pieces by René Boivin or Marina B. Further jewels from the collection will be offered in the New York Jewels auction on 8 December 2020. The proceeds from the sales will continue their legacy of extraordinary philanthropy.

Magnificent Jewels Online – 27 October - 11 November

This season Christie’s will host alongside the Magnificent Jewels live auction two additional Jewels online sales. The afternoon session of the Magnificent Jewels live auction has been transformed into an online sale, running from 27 October until 11 November, offering approximately 150 lots with estimates ranging from CHF100 to CHF100,000. Christie’s are thrilled to include a charity element to benefit the Fondation privée des HUG Hôpitaux Universitaires de Genève. 15 Geneva based members of the jewellery trade have each generously donated a piece of jewellery for which both Christie’s and the hospital are incredibly grateful: Boghossian, Chatila, Faeber Collection, Golay Fils & Stahl, Jahan, Lancon SA, Manuel Bouvier, Margaret Jewels, Nicola-Jane P., Orpheo, F. Torrini SA, Valdieu Fine Arts and anonymous Donors.

To conclude this exciting sale week, Christie’s will offer 43 extravagant parures by Marconi. Each lot consists of a matching necklace, bracelet, earrings and ring. Joseph Marconi, who joined the industry over 30 years ago when he moved from Italy to Geneva, opened his own jewellery house over a decade ago. The sale will open for bidding on 3 November and close on 17 November.

Watches Online: The Geneva Edit – 5-19 November

Christie’s Geneva will present the most important online watch auction the firm has staged to date, with over 200 lots spanning from the 18th century to recent days, made by the world’s most celebrated watchmakers. The majority of the watches have been consigned by private collectors.

For lovers of vintage Rolex, Christie’s has once again sourced a superb steel ‘Paul Newman’ Daytona. This reference 6262 has been consigned by the family of the original owner and is sold complete with its original bracelet, certificate and brochure – an exciting new discovery estimated to realise between CHF150,000 and 250,000.

From the contemporary watchmaking genius F.P. Journe comes one of the most sought-after early examples of the reference ‘T’ platinum Tourbillon Souverain wristwatches with Remontoir d'Egalité. The model was F.P. Journe’s first production watch and the very first wristwatch ever to use a constant force remontoire, a mechanism devised to improve timekeeping. Consigned by a private collector, it was made in 1999 and is estimated between CHF200,000 and 400,000.
