Baselworld welcomes an auction house for the first time

At the next edition of Baselworld, the Phillips Auction House will make its debut. In association with Bacs&Russo, it will display to the public a selection of the most prestigious watches from its spring, modern and vintage sales, as well as a selection of extraordinary timepieces loaned by private collectors for the pleasure of sharing them with the greatest number of enthusiasts. The exhibition space that will be exclusively reserved for the auction house will benefit from a privileged location in Halle 1. Michel Loris-Melikoff, CEO of Baselworld, said: "By welcoming Phillips, Baselworld will offer its 80,000 visitors a unique opportunity to discover and admire exceptional watches that have marked the history of watchmaking. I am particularly pleased to welcome the prestigious Phillips Auction House and to warmly thank Aurel Bacs and Alexandre Ghotbi for their confidence in embarking on a new journey together."
