Collectors vied for the Montre Ecole (school watch) from the Naissance d’une Montre project, that was sold at auction by Christie’s in Hong Kong. The hammer came down at over triple the low estimate.

On 30 May 2016, the Montre Ecole, the first watch to be created as part of the Naissance d’une Montre project, sold for 1,461,507 USD (low-end estimate of 450,000 USD) at the Christie’s auction in Hong Kong. This marks a new milestone for the Naissance d’une Montre – Le Garde Temps project and represents a validation of the combined efforts of Robert Greubel, Stephen Forsey and Philippe Dufour to safeguard and transmit traditional watchmaking knowledge and skills. This watch has recently received a never before seen 100/100 points by the independent critic’s guide The Watch Enthusiast.
