First published: 02-09-2011

A selection of rare and important watches are set to go under the hammer next month at Sotheby's auction house in Hong Kong.

The company has announced that the Hong Kong Important Watches Autumn Sale 2011 will be taking place on October 6th 2011 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

In total, 470 lots will be put up for sale, with some examples dating back as far as 1800, right up to the present day.

It is estimated that the total value of the sale will be between HK$72 million to $101 million (£5.7 million to £7.9 million), making it the largest sale of its kind in the history of the auction house on Hong Kong.

Vanessa Herrera, head of watches for Sotheby's China and Southeast Asia, said: "Highlights include modern rarities by world-revered horological masters, including the debut appearance of a truly bespoke hand-crafted timepiece by master watchmaker Daniel Roth at auction."

People in Hong Kong can also attend the Watch & Clock Fair in the city later this month.
