Sotheby’s – Important Watches

April 15th, 2011 by

Sotheby’s Evening sale of Important Watches at the Hotel Beau-Rivage in Geneva on Sunday, May 15th will take collectors on a journey through five centuries of watch history, from 1580 to the present day.  The sale, which features 280 lots, will bring together an impressive range of antique timepieces, pocket watches and wristwatches including a 16th-century German tambour watch, highly rare Rolex sports watches – models like Submariner, Sea Dweller, Explorer – and various versions of the Daytona.

Patek Philippe will also be present with very rare complicated watches such as the Ref. 2499 second series with magnifying glass.  Part of the sale will be devoted to pocket watches with three sections showing enamel timepieces made for Indian, Turkish and Chinese markets.

Finally, this sale will include watches that have witnessed man’s limits and accomplishments such as the collection of Rolex from Dr. Janusz Kurbiel, the Prince Troubetskoy racing driver timepieces, and the Ulysse Nardin split seconds chronograph that made history with official time keeping of Fausto Coppi’s legendary Cycling World Hour Record.
