Horology: The Estate of David G. Newsom

This collection is the result of a lifetime of learning and passion for the art of timekeeping. From simple time-only watches to grand complicated minute repeaters with perpetual calendars, from the most interesting and sought-after makers, these pieces were purchased and pursued throughout the world: Switzerland to Germany to the States, via auctions or private dealers or collectors?there is not a watch or timepiece that was not highly regarded. The collection features some of Abraham-Louis Breguet?s finest accomplishments, including a rare No. 2835 astronomical quarter-repeating watch that George Daniels described and illustrated in his book The Art of Breguet, and Breguet?s No. 2729 ?Une Minute? tourbillon watch, for which it took Newsom, a close friend, and the Breguet Depuis 1775 firm five years to correctly reproduce the engine-turned 18kt gold case, chain, and key as they had been lost decades ago. The presentation from Michel Parmigiani of his ?Meccanica I? Unique Object Reference U1140 to David and his wife Carol is a testament to the fact that David was a true collector of fine timepieces from any century.
