Christie’s auctions and exhibitions feature spectacular art and luxury goods. We encourage you to attend one of our 350 auctions and previews throughout the world. Live auction is not the only vehicle for purchase that Christie’s offers. Online auctions are available throughout the year in many categories, and you may also purchase luxury goods directly at Christie’s Watch Shop or Handbag Shop or through Christie’s Private Sales. Many of these sales, like the Private Collection of President and Mrs. Ronald Reagan and the recent James Bond Spectre sale, are iconic.
