Other exclusive series will also be unveiled, such as the Octa chronographe Ruthenium, estimated €150,000 - €250,000, a limited edition of just 99 pieces whose dial is coated with ruthenium, a precious metal derived from platinum.

The "Le Temps est Féminin" (Ladies’ watches) sale, which will be held on 16th January, explores the relationship between women and watchmaking. This year it will feature an eclectic selection.

The sale will showcase the 1980s creativity of Van Cleef & Arpels, Patek Philippe and Piaget. Several pieces from an exclusive private collection will present unusual harmonies of texture.
Gold, delicately guilloché or textured, is combined with diamonds, pearls and wood. From hypnotic onyx dials to oversized lapis lazuli bezels, the sale will feature a variety of materials and genuine craftsmanship.
