Pocket Watches & Accessories

The final sale of 2013 brings our slew of Pocket Watch sales to a fantastic finish, with a delightful selection of items. We are happy to present our largest complicated section to date, with a emphasis on that most evergreen of complications: the chronograph. Every collector should own a column wheel chronograph at some point and there are plenty of wonderful items to choose. Beautiful watches are a usual feature of our sales and this one does not disappoint. We have a wonderfully detailed piece, full of intricate detail, in the form of an apple by Tres Wifs & Menu. There is also a delightfully re-cased movement by Thomas Mudge, in a gorgeous repoussé case showing Hope being crowned by Time in the manner of an earlier piece. Also an enamelled piece by Cartier showcases that famous firm's ability to create rich and opulent pieces. The ingenuity of the older designers are also well represented. There is a Perry Edwards pocket watch with an inbuilt key cunningly engineered by Jacot & Bovy. There is also an interesting project in the form of a repeater watch with two automata on the dial, a very involving project for those with the skills required! Enjoy the selection and we look forwards to seeing you at the sale!
