Artcurial has amassed a stellar lineup of rare luxury watches for its Horlogerie de Collection auction on January 17.
The auction takes place in the exclusive Yacht Club de Monaco, but telephone and online bidding is expected to give the sale a global audience.
The top three pieces in the auction are all grand complications from Patek Philippe.

From 1964 comes a numbered Patek Philippe Ref. 1463A stainless steel manual winding chronograph wristwatch, also advertised with an estimate of €150,000 – 200,000.
