Pocket Watches & Accessories

Products of the American manufacturers feature prominently in this sale, from the very exceptionally rare gold-cased high-grade Hamilton 947 Extra (Lot 110) to an octagonal stainless steel-cased example by Waltham (Lot 162). We are also delighted to present for sale an Elgin Veritas with power reserve indicator (lot 6). All showcase the variety and quality available from the makers of the United States; quite often overlooked in favour of European watches by collectors. Talking of which; we have a veritable smörgåsbord of watches from Europe, from a complicated quarter repeater by well known English maker Edward John Dent (Lot 5) to plainer dress watches from the oldest Swiss watch houses such as Vacheron Constantin(Lot 175) and from elaborate enamelled pieces representing the highest levels of craftsmanship (Lots 22 and 23) to tool watches used by the military by makers such as Rolex (Lot 220). New for this sale, we also present movements and parts for those looking to restore or repair watches, helpful for those after a rare movement or a project. We hope you enjoy the selection and look forwards to seeing you at the sale!
