68 Lots Retracing the Amazing Panerai Odyssey

Chapter I of The Panerai Encyclopedia is now live for bidding on Christies.com, a treasure trove of some of the most desirable watches to bear the name of the legendary Florentine Maison, founded in 1860, that revolutionised the dive watch when it became the official supplier to the Italian Royal Navy around the turn of the century. Today, Panerai’s distinctive and unique aesthetic drawn from its military past is admired by collectors of high horology the world over. This carefully curated auction of 68 pieces impresses with the sheer diversity of pristine-condition models. The Panerai Encyclopedia – Chapter I, an online auction, marks part five of the series of themed watch sales from The Champion Collection, the horological journey which began in November of last year.

 Alexander Bigler, Vice-President & Head of Watches Christie’s Asia Pacific, shared:
“As parts I, II and III have shown so far, The Champion Collection comprises a variety of timepieces never before curated for auction, and never before offered under one roof. The record-breaking success of the three sales to date attest to the remarkable quality of this single-owner offering. The Panerai Encyclopedia – Chapter I proposes 68 rarities of the highest order, showcasing an iconic watch whose functionality and aesthetic have made it a legend in its own time. I can’t imagine a more captivating deep dive into contemporary sport chic than into the realm of Panerai’s elegantly distinctive watches, offered here in an amazing diversity of exclusive models and limited editions, all in pristine condition. Christie’s Hong Kong is honoured to continue the journey of The Champion Collection and excited to offer these exemplary Panerai highlights to collectors around the world during this exclusive Watches Online: The Hong Kong Edit event.
