Tatler Asia has exclusively learned that Phillips in association with Bacs & Russo will offer a complete set of four fantastic Philippe Dufour watches at the Geneva Watch Auction: XIV in November 2021.
Dufour, who established his own eponymous brand in 1987 after spending several years as an independent watchmaker restoring antique and vintage pieces, is one of the industry’s most well-respected personalities. His creations frequently set new world records thanks to their exceptional rarity. Earlier this month, for example, a Philippe Dufour Grande et Petite Sonnerie Number 3 was sold for a bank-busting US$7.63 million by London-based dealer A Collected Man.
In addition to his Sonnerie wristwatches, which use tiny hammers and gongs to sound the time without any involvement from the wearer, Dufour is additionally famous for his Duality and Simplicity collections.
