As you can see, the list of exclusive auctions events is vast, each sale presenting a curated selection of the best timepieces, for which most are not available on the market, meaning the highest bidder wins all. For any watch enthusiast, it is important to look at the catalogues of each auction (usually available 2-3 weeks prior to the sale) and preselect the lots that interest you most. What makes auctions interesting is the competitive nature of such an exclusive event, so prepare to lift your paddle often if you want to take home your future prize.

For first time bidders, it is of the utmost importance to be aware of the buyer’s fee that is not included to the hammer price (so expect a 20-25% premium in addition to the final price) when you bid.
If you cannot be physically present at the event, you can register to bid online during the sale (with an eventual risk of delay in bidding due to online connections) or simply contact NOSVILLE to have our specialists physically bidding for you and guarantee you win the lot.

Without further ado, here are a few teasers of exclusive timepieces that will be available for ownership, only for the worthy.

Sincerely yours,

Ali Bedretdinov
