Sale Overview

A super selection of modern vintage and antique timepieces, for which a special catalogue has been prepared, offering exhaustive research and insight into a variety of truly fascinating pieces, to take the bidder on a cultural odyssey that journeys from the court of the Chinese Emperor Qianlong to the collection of the celebrated horological connoisseur Henry Graves.  Instead of being offering only conventionally desirable mid to late 20th century wristwatches the collector is invited to roam over rich horological terrain examining world class examples of the personal timepiece from the last 250 years. The opportunity to see these pieces presented alongside each other, informed, and enriched by the scholarly research presented in this auction is unique, giving the opportunity for the connoisseur to make connections between the different periods and to chart the development of luxury watchmaking over a quarter of a millennium.
