The pieces set to be included in the auction will be exhibited from Sunday, 16 March at Jumeirah Emirates Tower Hotel until the sale date on March 20 at 7.00pm.

Price estimates will range from $1,000 to $350,000, insiders said.

Frederic Watrelot, Christie’s regional watch specialist, commented: “The success we experienced in Dubai with the re-launch sale in October 2013, as well as the very dominant Middle Eastern bidding in the established watch sale in Geneva in mid-November, was a clear indication of the appetite among our clients in the region for exceptional, unique and vintage watches.”

The number of lots offered in the sale this season has more than doubled from 2013’s 48 lots. Watrelot credits this to the growing number of Middle Eastern watch collectors and in response to the demand Christie’s  has witnessed among this group throughout their international watch sales.
