If you haven't reviewed the offerings in this just-concluded auction, you probably should. Almost every watch offered for sale was very interesting (as probably almost every clock offering was too, but I don't collect clocks). https://www.sothebys.com/en/auctions/2019/masterworks-of-time-l19077.html The lots generally were offered in chronological order, earliest first. The 143 lots sold for an average of 44,056 pounds each (not including the 25% buyer's premium), although the first two lots described below brought in 2/3ds of the total sales amount. Many lots went unsold. Among the most expensive pocket watch lots were: Lot 143, which sold for an astounding 3,615,000 pounds, plus buyer's premium. This was a circa 1982 George Daniels, gold double wheel escapement watch, with mean solar and sidereal time, annual calendar, age and phase of the moon, and equation of time Lot 67, a circa 1778 gold and enamel George Margetts pair case cylinder with a tidal dial, annual calendar, and astronomical indications, which sold for 615,000 pounds, plus buyer's premium Lot 132, a circa 1903 gold S. Smith grande and petite sonnerie, trip minute repeater with perpetual calendar and rattrapante, which sold for 218,750 pounds, plus buyer's premium I only bid on one item, Lot 141, a V&C "chronoscope," but I was significantly outbid. It went for 11,000 pounds plus buyer's premium. I would appreciate your views on any of the watches offered for sale, the prices any fetched, and the watches that failed to sell.
