On April 2019 one would assume that buying an item from an auction held by one of the major houses – Sotheby’s or Christie’s for example – would be as good as buying it from the original artist or manufacturer. Unfortunately, according to recent news, this still isn’t the case.
A Philippe Dufour watch valued at HK$ 1,200,000 was recently listed in Sotheby’s April 2019 auction, that had been stolen from an individual in England at some point in the past 3 years. While the registration number on the watch was different, an investigation by the manufacturer confirmed that this was the watch that was stolen.

Hong Kong has a fairly solid reputation for being a safe place – especially for expatriates. Crime is, for the most part, extremely low (and this could be even more true depending on your home country). The everyday wariness of crime which exists in other parts of the world isn’t prevalent in Hong Kong – most of us live in apartment buildings with 24/7/365 security! Why on earth should we be worried about someone breaking into our apartments? How is that even going to happen when you’re on the 25th floor with a steel gate in front of your door?
Unfortunately, this isn’t as unlikely as we’d like to think. And while overall crime rates are down in 2018, since the start of October there have been a series of break-ins, burglaries, and robberies across the city.
