Iconeek – Iconeek Summer Auction – Antiques and Watches Auctions – WorldTempus

I feel as if we were telling you yesterday about Iconeek’s second sale, yet this tiny home of vintage and used watches is back with even more delights—169 pieces to be exact—which go on sale on Sunday, June 12.

Something that satisfies all tastes

Most of the pieces come from Geneva collectors. There is something for everyone: from the most sought-after watches from Rolex, Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet, to recent limited editions making their first on the market, to rather rare watches.

Prices start at a few hundred francs and go up to six-figure amounts, making this auction accessible to everyone, regardless of collector’s class of watches.

How do they do it?

Sourcing is always one of the hardest parts of organizing an auction. Finding collectors who have a) interesting pieces, and b) interesting pieces they are willing to part with, is an art in itself. Fabian and Vanessa Chicha Malka Iconeek have over 25 years of experience in the business and have built a trusted network of watch enthusiasts who know they will receive the best service, attention and care. It is also worth noting that Iconeek is the only Geneva watch auction house that does not charge a commission, regardless of the price of the watch.

169 knots

After six months of hard work, this husband and wife duo, along with their small team of experts, have put together an amazing collection of 169 watches accessible through their online catalog, which includes all the details.

Where do you apply?

The auction will be broadcast live online on two platforms, Drouot and Invaluable, where you can bid live. If you would like to organize a telephone auction or conduct a correspondence auction, you can contact Iconeek directly via their website or by phone. For those in Geneva, there is also a physical open until Friday 10, Wednesdays from 10am to 6pm, and Thursdays and Fridays from 10am to 7pm.
