The time is nigh. We shall bid large sums of money on tiny wristwatches, COVID-19 be damned. Or, rather, some of us shall watch other people bid large sums of money on tiny wristwatches, and watch from afar, and admire said watches.

Phillips' Geneva Watch Auction: XII is taking place live from November 6th through 7th at Hôtel La Réserve in Geneva. For those who won't be bidding, a perusal of the catalog and a gander at the auction results is still a fine way to learn about significant watches both vintage and new.

Below are some of our favorite lots — not the star lots, mind you, but some watches that may fly under the radar, and shouldn't because they're so damn cool.
