 This landmark move signifies a moment of growth and evolution for Phillips’ Watch and Jewels categories. The decision to transition to the illustrious Hotel President Geneva comes amidst a period of expansion and increasing convergence between watch and jewellery collectors. 

Celebrating its 10th year of watch auctions in Geneva, Phillips reflects on a decade of remarkable achievements. Since its inaugural auction in May 2015, Phillips Watches has garnered an unparalleled market-leading total of $1.3 billion in global watch auctions, underscoring its enduring impact on the industry. 

Following the resounding success of Phillips’ inaugural The Geneva Jewels Auction: ONE in November 2023, this move signifies an exciting chapter of expansion for the Jewels category. 

Phillips will unveil an awe-inspiring 500 square meters of daylight-flooded exhibition space on the pool terrace of Hotel President Geneva, featuring a glass structure with stunning views of Lake Geneva.

This captivating venue will host the full auction previews from 8 to 13 May, with The Geneva Watch Auction: XIX taking place on 11 and 12 May, followed by The Geneva Jewels Auction: Two on 13 May. The auctions themselves will take place in the grandeur of the Wilson Room, spanning approximately 1,000 square meters.
