There was a good buzz in the Geneva auction hall over the weekend (May 14-15) as Antiquorum's Important Modern and Vintage Timepieces sale got underway.
With an impressive variety of both antique and recent wristwatches, pocket watches and clocks from watchmaking legends going under the hammer, there was something for everyone on offer.
As expected, one of the big hits of the sale was a Breguet silver carriage clock with 10 complications. This was one of his silver humpback carriage clocks of which only a few were ever made, (1812). The complications include moon phases and equation of time.
Accompanied by the original Breguet gold-tooled red morocco travelling case, Breguet silver key and certificate, it sold for CHF205,000(currently equivalent to $230,000) - in the upper half of its estimate range. It will make someone an excellent investment.
With double perpetual calendar for both Julian and Gregorian systems, as well as minute-repeating, two time zones and a chronograph, it had been expected to sell for CHF100,000-150,000 but likewise reached CHF205,000 ($230,000).
