Christie’s to Auction off ‘Important Watches’

If you are in New York City in the middle of December, you might want to know about Christie’s “Important Watches” auction. The Gordon Bethune Collection of Fifty Exceptional Wristwatches is a rare medley of top-quality timepieces, including representation from Patek Philippe, Rolex, Vacheron Constantin, and Cartier.

The former chief executive officer of Continental Airlines is a noted watch connoisseur. His collection, estimated at $3 million, is the keynote of the day-long auction to be held on December 14, 2012.
