Bonhams Sale 16805 - Watches & Wristwatches

Bonhams are having another sale - here are some pieces that caught my eye


Lot No: 1
Cabrier. A fine and rare silver and underpainted horn triple case pocket watch
London Hallmark for 1794

Estimate: £800 - 1,200

Very nice calligraphy / typography on the dial, loving that sweep on the 'L'!


Lot No: 112
Patek Philippe. A rare integrated Electronic Master Clock System with independent minute and seconds comparators in a five-piece tower
Circa 1975

Estimate: £4,000 - 6,000

hmm not sure I have the space for this, but I love some of the detailing on it , why for example would they use wood on the side panels which (I assume) wouldn't be visible ? I guess if you're going to be buying an integrated electronic master clock system that you should go for a Patek, just for details like that.


Lot No: 109

Corum. A limited edition stainless steel automatic centre seconds wristwatch together with fitted presentation box and papers

Estimate: £1,000 - 1,500

I don't love the design, but the hour and minute hands have something quite special about them, I always like a cut-through indicator hand. Incidentally the seconds hand is supposed to be a voodoo pin.
