The Watches Department

Phillips in Association with Bacs & Russo is the watch department at Phillips auction house, dedicated exclusively to the world's finest collectors' watches. Launched in November 2014 by Aurel Bacs and his partner, Livia Russo, the department was established in response to the ever-increasing need for today's collectors to easily access scholarship, guidance and quality across the board. The team of specialists at Phillips Watches is dedicated to an uncompromised approach to quality, transparency and client service. With multiple world records, including for a Rolex wristwatch, vintage Patek Philippe wristwatch, and Omega wristwatch at auction, Phillips has become the undisputed worldwide market leader, and in 2019, the auction house opened Phillips PERPETUAL, a private treaty program with physical and digital storefronts that offers a highly curated selection of watches sold at fixed prices.
