Now is the time to invest in one of these exquisite watches—they're some of the most luxurious ones on the market.

Calling all watch collectors. On December 10, a very special auction titled Game Changers will take place on Park Avenue in New York. Famed auction house Phillips will be hosting one of the most exciting timepiece auctions of the year, featuring some seriously legendary wristwatches.

Attendees can expect fine pieces from Patek Philippe, Rolex, URWERK, Omega, and Breitling, to name a few. Among the highly valuable watches will be vintage pieces, like two of the first watches to ever bear the Daytona name on their dials in 1963, as well as a new old stock TAG Heuer Monaco from 1969. Three of the watches (including a rare pink-gold moon phase from Patek Philippe, and an Automatic Master Clock from Upwerk) will be auctioned for over $1 million. But not all watches are expected to reach seven figures. The collection also offers a variety of watches that are expected to go for between $15,000 and $30,000.
