What a way to start the New Year! Patrizzi & Co’s have decided to delight collectors of wristwatches, pocket watches, and clocks by offering over 150 pieces under the hammer and into your precious collection! Headlining the auction is a classic 1929 gold-and-nephrite Cartier table clock with grande sonnerie chimes. This beautiful tab top watch is one of the two most complicated technologies made by the company to date. The rare chronograph comes with a large Comet clock featuring a grande sonnerie, moon phases, and calendar. Encased in a 14carat gold case and a nephrite base and side panels, the enamel face portrays phases of the moon.
It was owned originally by Hugh L. Grant, the youngest mayor of New York City, 1889-1892. The prices available are on request.
