Watch out! (Sorry.) Sotheby’s Hong Kong’s Important Watches Sale 2012 will take place on Oct. 8 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center. Whole lotta watches at this bad boy.

Leading the pack (of watches) is the Patek Philippe Sky Moon Tourbillon, which is estimated at $1.03 million – $1.54 million. Watch me now! (Really very sorry.) The sale is expected to achieve a total of $11.4–$16 million before the buyer’s premium.

Charles Tearle, Head of Watches (which is a thing that exists) at Sotheby’s Asia, said in a statement:

“Sotheby’s Watch Department are very proud of creating such a diverse and impressive selection of important watches, not only from established brands such as Patek Philippe and Cartier, but also the independent manufacturers that rarely appear at auction including Gruebel Forsey, MB&F and F.P.Journe. All sourced within Asia and offered in excellent condition from private collectors, the highlights of the sale include a selection of the most important modern collectible watches available. Although the highlights very much focus on the rare and exceptional, we have included a wide variety of watches that will appeal to a broad audience.”
So: Watches! Watch for this sale come October. Get it? Heh. Ugh. Don’t judge me.
