Swatch & Art From the Dunkel Collection at SothebyÕs Hong Kong

by swisscham in Business

This spring, SothebyÕs Hong Kong is delighted to present Swatch & Art from the Dunkel Collection, one of the worldÕs largest Swatch collections in private hands ever known (estimate upon request). Comprising more than 5,800 elements collected over 25 years by Mr Paul Dunkel, a passionate European collector, this superlot encompasses exclusive prototypes, limited and special edition Swatch watches from 1983 to 2007, and collected artwork relating to Swatch designs. Swatch & Art from the Dunkel Collection will lead the Important Watches Spring Sale taking place on 7 April at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. Mr Paul Dunkel, owner of the Collection, says, ÒCollecting both the Swatch and the artworks is like having an intriguing marriage that works perfectly well, affording people the luxury of admiring art objects on their wrists. What I enjoy the most about Swatch is that everybody can relate to it: regardless of age, origin, colour, culture, job and taste, most of us have had a Swatch in our lives. Over the years I have built an encyclopedic collection comprising nearly every model of Swatch produced in their first 25 years. I would like to thank SothebyÕs for the opportunity to share them with the world and I am looking forward to passing the legacy on to the next owner.Ó
