The Earl of Snowdon, Honorary Chairman, Christie’s EMEA, said: “One of my earliest childhood memories is obsessively playing with a diecast Aston Martin DB5, a gift that had been brought home by my parents from the premiere of Goldfinger. From that moment on I was fascinated by each new Bond film, the special effects and stunts and Bond’s watches and incredible style. I was even lucky enough to experience the school run in my father’s DB5. The British legend that is Bond has had a great influence on my life. It is an honour for Christie’s to be partnering once again with EON Productions to present this two-part official charity sale celebrating the 60th Anniversary of Bond. The incredible landmark live and online auctions will hopefully raise record sums for all the wonderful charitable causes chosen.”
