A Stellar September 2018 Auction Calendar

Ask any car enthusiast and they will tell you the Goodwood Revival is just around the corner; and of course the annual Revival sale and all of the commotion and anticipation that comes with it. It’s a truly English affair in the automotive space this month; expect Goodwood and RM Sotheby’s: London to dominate the car sales.

It doesn’t stop with luxury cars. Scroll down to discover a host of jewelry, watch and fine art sales along with our featured auctions to wet your appetite:

RM Sotheby’s: London

5th September – London, England


RM Sotheby’s hail this as one of the most successful sales on the European calendar since 2007, and for good reason. The sale is set in the stylish and affluent area of Knightsbridge and features an array of modern supercars combined with highly important and desirable classics. The top lot falls into this category and sees yet another Aston Martin set to fetch millions.

The 1961 Aston Martin DB4GT has silver screen prowess after being the star of the British comedy crime caper, the Wrong Arm of the Law (1963). Peter Sellers is believed to have been the owner and it is one of only 75 DB4GT’s originally built. However, a car of this rarity and provenance does not come cheap. It is expected to go under the hammer for between $3.8-4.3 million.

Bonhams Goodwood Revival

8th September – Chichester, England

After RM Sotheby’s classic gem, the Goodwood Revival sale features a modern beast as its top lot. Goodwood Revival is easily one of the biggest dates on the calendar for motoring enthusiasts and draws crowds from near and far. Typically in the motor industry, such a spectacular event comes with an auction to match and the Goodwood Revival certainly lives up to that notion.

So what is the aforementioned beast featured as Goodwood Revival’s top lot you ask? The jet black 2017 LaFerrari Aperta is described by Bonham’s as the ‘ultimate evolution of the ground breaking LaFerrari.’ It is one of just 210 examples made worldwide, giving it limitless investment potential as a collectible for the future. It is offered in pristine condition, with just one owner and less than 510 kilometers on the clock. All of these factors contribute to a price estimate of between $6.4 million – $8.3 million.

Bonhams Watches & Wristwatches

11th September – London, England

Here we see yet another featured auction coming out of Knightsbridge. From Rolex’s to rare Tag Heuer’s this sale incorporates a diverse array of timepieces for collectors and horologists to get excited about. Judging from the auction preview the standout piece will be the Faberge limited edition platinum and titanium manual tourbillon wristwatch.

Production of the limited edition version was limited to 30 pieces, 15 of which were platinum; leading Bonham’s to describe the timepiece as ‘fine and rare’. The Faberge also comes with a matching pair of 18K white gold and diamond cuff links. The sale is estimated to fall between $38,000 and $51,000 when the hammer falls on the 11th September.
