Next month, Sotheby's Australia are hosting their Important Jewels Auction in Melbourne, with a catalogue that includes a small collection of watches. The focus of the offering is obviously heavily on jewellery, however it is great to see a large local auction house include a few interesting watches, too. After passing the catalogue around the office this morning, there are a couple of standout pieces that were T+T team favourites. Felix (Editor) HEUER AUTAVIA AUTOMATIC CHRONOGRAPH "JO SIFFERT" The classic, cushiony case and panda dial with just the right amount of pop. The motor sports legacy doesn't hurt either. Emma (Marketing) CARTIER SANTOS 100 REF 2656 I'm loving this Santos' bold beauty for its dramatic contrasts of gold, steel and oxblood red *it's a striking variation of a Cartier icon. Nick (Writer) CARTIER TANK AMERICAINE REF 2483 Cartier are known for their timeless design language, but the Tank Americane is a standout for me. Yellow gold and dress watches go together like vermouth and gin.
