Phillips Temporarily Closes and Postpones the Auctions

"As more of our community of staff, clients and partners becomes affected by the spread of the Coronavirus, we have decided to postpone all of our sales and events in the Americas and Europe until mid-May. This includes The Geneva Watch Auction: ELEVEN, which was scheduled on May 9-10. As we continue to monitor the situation, our spring auctions in Hong Kong, scheduled for 29 May - 2 June, will proceed as planned".

The health and safety of everyone remain our top priority and our thoughts are with those of you who have already been personally affected by the virus.

We have put in place arrangements for the vast majority of our staff to work from home. For those of you who do wish to engage with us during these difficult times, our teams will continue to be available online and on the phone and we will continue to share content online through phillips.com and our Phillips app. We are closely monitoring what is happening in all of our regions on a daily basis and will keep you updated on our plans for the rest of the Spring sales season as the situation unfolds.

We hope you all stay healthy and we look forward to seeing you at Phillips when this crisis has passed".
