This auction features a diversity of fine timepieces covering several centuries. A French pocket watch by Roth, encased in a clear case revealing the extraordinary and decorative movement, dates from the 1700s. Another gold pocket watch appears quite simply elegant, but chimes the time to the minute when a lever is pressed.

Nearly a century of Cartier watches is represented in the Important Jewels Auction. There are two Cartier Art Deco watches from the 1920s. Three models of Pasha are available, including a Seatimer. The classic gold Panthere in a woman’s size is to be offered, and the larger Tank Americaine. A Santos and a barely ever worn Rotonde rounds out the Cartier offerings.

Patek Philippe, always a name to make bidders pay attention, is represented by three lots in the auction. There is a classic Calatrava in white gold, a very stylish square model with an integral gold mesh strap, and finally, an Annual Calendar in platinum that really makes a statement.

LOT 288: A Fine and Rare Gentleman’s Platinum Annual Calendar Wristwatch with Moon-phases and Power Reserve, Ref 5056P, by Patek Philippe

Blancpain, a long established and highly regarded name in fine timepieces is found on two timepieces in the auction. There is a Villeret Split Second Chronograph in a striking platinum limited edition model. The other is a stainless steel L-Evolution Moonphase 8 Days, a very modern, barely used timepiece with its rather substantial box.

One very interesting and rather unusual timepiece is a Piaget watch that is hidden inside a gold coin. The distinctive case for this pocket watch has a very cleverly concealed button to open the cover. The watch-case is constructed from a real coin. Another Piaget watch is a large chain bracelet featuring a watch with a striking tiger-eye dial in the centre of one link. The Piaget Polo is a classic model, and this auction provides you with an opportunity to bid on a Piaget Polo that is fully encrusted with diamonds.

The June Important Jewels Auction features a wide choice of other fine timepieces including ones by Vacheron Constantin, Franck Muller, Breitling, Bulgari, Omega, and Chopard, to name a few. It’s time to look at your watch wardrobe, and take this perfect opportunity to fill any gaps you might notice. A timepiece is the perfect accessory.
