The Sales Buzz Continues with the November 2017 Auction Calendar

We’re now well into the busiest season for the art market and the big-name auction houses have ramped up proceedings for the penultimate month before Christmas. Although art is the principal focus, there are also some blockbuster dates in the November 2017 auction calendar for luxury cars and watches that are not to be missed for the avid collector.

Borro’s Highlights for November

Sotheby’s Important Watches on November 12th

Sotheby’s are set to host another of their infamous ‘Important Watches’ sales in Geneva, the home of all luxury watches. The lot has an array of classic names such as Pateks, Rolexes and Audemars, but the title for most expensive and potentially the biggest highlight of the auction is the Vacheron Constantin collection. The set features four automatic wristwatches with day, date and engraved miniature mask dials, all produced in 2008. The lot is estimated between 260,000 — 430,000CHF (£201,535-£333,308).

Bonhams Post War and Contemporary Art on November 15th

Bonhams have placed some serious value in their Post War and Contemporary auction in New York with fine art works and sculptures from artists such as Ed Ruscha and Alfred Leslie. However, the lot that looks set to steal the show will be world renowned American artist Andy Warhol’s Puma Invader (Positive), set to fetch between $1,200,000-$1,800,000 (£910,000-£1,400,000) when the hammer drops later this month.

Set to take place at the prestigious Mercedes-Benz World in Weybridge, England this is surely not to be missed by any classic car enthusiasts and collectors. Specialist classic and sports car auctioneers, Historics, are set to auction off a fleet of 31 cars in total, with production years ranging from 1929 right through to 2010.

It appears that age indicates value in this auction, with the 1929 Bentley 4.5 litre Open Tourer in the Vanden Plas Style estimated to fetch between £750,000-£875,000. This estimate is more than double that of the next most expensive car featured in the lot.
