Iconeek Iconeek Summer Auction

The Geneva-based auction house is back with its third and largest sale to date and there is something for everyone

It only seems like yesterday that we were reporting on Iconeek’s second sale, and yet this small maison of vintage and pre-loved watches is back with even more horological delights – 169 lots to be precise – that will go on sale on Sunday 12th June. 

Something for Everyone

Mostly sourced locally from Geneva collectors, this third sale has something for everyone – from the most sought-after timepieces from Rolex, Patek Philippe, and Audemars Piguet to modern-day limited editions that are making their first return to the market, along with some rather rare clocks. 

Prices start at just a couple of hundred francs and go up into the six-figure zone, making this an auction for everyone, wherever they are on the watch collecting spectrum.  

How do they do it?

Sourcing is always one of the most difficult parts of putting together an auction. Finding collectors with a) interesting pieces, and b) interesting pieces that they are willing to part with is an art in itself. Iconeek’s owners, Fabien and Vanessa Chicha, have over 25 years of experience in the field and have built a trusted network of watch lovers who know they will get the best service, attention, and care. It is also interesting to note that Iconeek is the only watch auction house in Geneva that doesn’t charge a seller’s commission, whatever the price of the timepiece. 

169 Lots

After six months of hard work, this husband-and-wife duo, plus their small team of experts, have put together a spectacular collection of 169 timekeepers that can be accessed in their online catalogue that includes all the details. 

Where to Bid

The online live auction will be streamed on two platforms, Drouot and Invaluable, where you can bid live. If you would like to organize a telephone bidding or drop an absentee bid, you can join directly Iconeek via their website or by telephone. For those in Geneva, there is also a physical preview until Friday 10th, Wednesday from 10am to 6pm and Thursday and Friday from 10am to 7pm.
