Lot Essay

The present watch is a very fine example of a complicated timepiece made by Louis Audemars for his faithful client, Breguet in Paris. According to the Archives of Montres Breguet, it was made in 1897, finished by Breguet and sold on 4 September 1900 for the amount of 3,600 Francs to M. Samama.

The case is stamped with Louis Audemars' shield-shaped hallmarks (see Louis-Benjamin Audemars - His Life and Work by Hartmut Zantke, pp. 182 - 187). For a comparable watch sold by Louis Audemars to Breguet in 1882 see p. 408, op. cit..
