First Look: Christie's Introduces Private Sales Department In New York

Christie's Private Sale

When you think of Christie's, auctions are probably the first things that come to mind. And not just any auctions - legendary replica watches like Eric Clapton's 2499 and other such madness have appeared on the block at Christie's over the years. But this week Christie's New York has launched their Private Sales program, letting you get your vintage fix between auctions with all the usual perks that come with buying from Christie's. Here's a first look inside Christie's Private Sales.

Walking into the atrium of Christie's New York headquarters at 20 Rockefeller Center, surrounded by Basquiats and Warhols, it's difficult to not be impressed. Around a corner you'll now find a series of vitrines filled with vintage watches, labeled "Christie's Private Sales." To fill the desire for replica watches between its six yearly auctions (two each in New York, Geneva, and Hong Kong), Christie's has launched a small scale retail program beginning in New York.

Coming on board as Director of Private Sales is Reginald Brack, who has been involved in the fake watch community for years as a collector, auction consultant, and private collecting consultant. This is a guy who really knows his stuff, and with the resources at his disposal at Christie's, he has been able to bring together a pretty great first collection for Private Sales.

While the logistics of buying at auction can be a bit intimidating, Private Sales is like purchasing at a retail location - you come in, chat with Brack, take a look at watches, and buy if you are interested. No pre-registration and all prices are clearly marked along with all the reference and service details on little cards placed with the replica watches in the vitrines. And, best of all, these prices are the final prices, meaning you're not paying fees, buyer premiums, etc. on top like you would at auction.

And, best of all, you're getting the full force and weight of the Christie's fake watch department standing behind all sales. The same people who investigate and authenticate pieces hitting the auction block are validating the Private Sales watches. This takes a lot of the stress out of the buying process, where you always have to be a little skeptical to protect yourself.

Alright, so on to a few highlights from the current lineup available at Rock Center:

Patek Philippe 150th Anniversary Watch

The 150th Anniversary Patek Philippe Caseback

Patek Philippe Stainless Steel Calatrava (Ref. 3718) - This fake watch was exclusive to the Japanese market and was produced to commemorate Patek's 150th anniversary in 1989. It has a stainless steel case and a cool ivory dial. You know we're suckers for anything in steel from Patek Philippe and this one is priced at $14,500.

Jaeger-LeCoultre 18k Rose Gold Triple Calendar

Jaeger-LeCoultre 18k Rose Gold Triple Calendar - These is a really cool fake watch dating back to the 1940s. This was the heyday of the triple calendar and this example has a rose gold case and the date, tip of the date hand, and French day/month windows are all accented in bright red. This example is selling for $7,900.

Double Red Replica Rolex Sea Dweller

Double Red Replica Rolex Sea Dweller (Ref. 1665) - For something completely different to the JLC above, there is this Double Red. It has a Mark III dial and dates to circa 1972. At $28,000 it doesn't come cheap, but this is something that serious Replica Rolex collectors can sometimes spend years hunting for.

Heuer Carrera With Tachy Dial

Heuer Carrera With Tachy Dial - Dating to the 1960s, this early Carrera has a black-on-black dial, which is harder to find than the typical white-on-white combination. You'll also notice that tachy scale right around the edge (instead of on the flange or a bezel) and inside is a Caliber 72 movement. The price is $5,800.
