In case you haven't noticed, we're now in the thick of watch auction season where all the top houses are rolling out the bounty in autumn sales and other special exclusives. There is so much going on. Phillips Auctioneers just broke another record when it closed its Geneva Watch Auction: Eight at CHF21 million; Panerai has collaborated with Sotheby's in an online exclusive sale of three unique prototypes – the Lab-ID, the Mare Nostrum, and the Radiomir Firenze; Bonhams Hong Kong has also returned to the scene after a short hiatus with seven watches never-before seen at any auction. Want a piece of the action? Easy. Book a flight to Hong Kong and check yourself into The Upper House.

Why The Upper House? Because this gorgeous luxury hotel has just collaborated with The WatchBox, which is one of the newest and most well stocked pre-owned timepieces online store. Together, The Upper House and The WatchBox have crafted a unique experience for the watch aficionado who wants the VIP experience to extend beyond the hotel room. As the Asia Pacific region's number one watch hub, Hong Kong has a lot to offer but to get the best deals, you've got to know people or risk making mistakes. This exclusive package by The Upper House and The WatchBox is designed to help you navigate the (oftentimes) murky waters of buying watches in cutthroat Hong Kong.

Travel in comfort from the hotel to The WatchBox's Asia showroom for a private consultation where you can also make inquiries on something you're interested to buy, or get a valuation on watches you wish to sell.

Available from now till February 2019, The WatchBox room package at The Upper House is priced at HK$5,000 per night. Guests staying for two consecutive nights or more will receive HK$500 House credit per day, The Upper House signature suit bag, 1,000 Asia Miles per day, transfer to the WatchBox Lounge for a complimentary private consultation and valuation session, HK$2,000 WatchBox voucher to spend on the platform, amenity, and an extended 15-month warranty for all purchased watches, as well as invitation to WatchBox and The Upper House private events.

In the mood for swankier digs? The Upper Suite can be yours from HK$20,000 per night, with additional privileges including upgrade to HK$1,000 House credit per day, 2,000 Asia Miles per day and a HK$4,000 WatchBox voucher.
