    Patek Philippe Aquanaut & Platinum Rolex Day-Date Lead NY Elizabeth’s 2336 | Fine Watches Auction

    The Patek Philippe Aquanaut created a sensation when it was launched in 1997. It offered something unexpected and modern with its youthful new look. Its case was a rounded octagon inspired by the sea creature Nautilus. The Aquanaut sported a “tropical” composite black strap ultra-resistant to wear, salt water, and UV radiation. The strap was made of a new composite material by Patek Philippe. An 18-karat rose gold Patek Philippe Aquanaut with tropical black rubber strap is leading the upcoming 2336 | Fine Watches Auction, presented by NY Elizabeth. It has a 40mm case size with automatic movement. Watch collectors can also consider a titanium Bulgari Octo Finissimo Perpetual calendar.  Dates and days are essential, according to Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of Rolex and Tudor. The Rolex Day-Date is instantly recognizable because of its unique design. Since its launch in 1955, the Day-Date was the only watch with a semi-circular window at 12 o’clock displaying the day of the week in full.

    1800s Burlwood Jewelry Caddy Leads 2333 | Decorative Arts Sale by NY Elizabeth

    An 1800s burlwood jewelry caddy is among the highlights of the upcoming 2333 | Decorative Arts Auction, presented by NY Elizabeth. This handmade set is beautifully decorated and has an aged look. Inside this antique jewelry casket are two French opaline bottles. These rare bottles were most probably designed by Portieux Vallery. The glasses are adorned with little gilt gold stars on a white body. They can be used as perfume or apothecary bottles or simply as decoration. This museum-worthy piece is said to be the only kind in the sale. Another notable French opaline item on offer is a white glass pitcher with a noticeable neon green handle. Both items were acquired from the Palm Springs Estate of Jerry Anderson and Ray Howard in London in the 1970s. From Asia, a notable lot in this auction is a large green glass vase with a Japanese cherry blossom motif. The cherry blossom is enameled in gold, white, and red. Clear glass production in Japan dates back to as early as the Kofun period (around 300 to 538 CE), but it remained incredibly rare, difficult, and costly up until the Edo period (1603 - 1868) when new techniques and expanding consumer culture allowed glass manufacturing to flourish. While many of Japan’s most instantly recognizable traditional crafts center on materials like ceramics and textiles, glass products produced in Japan are famed around the world today.

    Fine Art by Fantin-Latour, British Impressionist Painters Available at NY Elizabeth

    Henri-Théodore Fantin-Latour made a name for himself in 19th-century England for his flower still lifes.

    Henry-Theodore Fantin-Latour’s Mystical Depiction of Daphne & Apollo Leads British Fine Art Auction

    A rare Napoleonic War-era portrait thought to be of Juliette Récamier is coming to NY Elizabeth’s upcoming auction of British Fine Art. It is an 18th-century French Napoleonic portrait of a lady seated in an interior believed to be painted by Ingres, Simon, or Gerard. Juliette Récamier, born Jeanne Françoise Julie Adélaïde Récamier in 1777 Paris, was a beloved French socialite during her time. Numerous paintings and sculptures were modeled after her modest beauty and mannerisms. As a salon leader, she was a host to notable artists and literary and political figures of her society. In popular culture, because she loved reclining, furniture was termed after her as the récamier. Another legend is brought to life in a 17th-century oil painting. It is believed to have been painted by an Italian Old Master from the Bolognese School. It depicts Diana, goddess of wild animals, and her hound perched on her lap. The Bolognese School was the epicenter of Italian painters of great caliber, and many were heavily influenced by Christianity and saints, giving rise to the Baroque style. One of the most notable lots in the auction is a 19th-century Classical Impressionist scene of Daphne and Apollo by Henry-Theodore Fantin-Latour. The two nude mythical figures, bathed in the moonlight, represent sensual, unattainable love in a beautiful nocturnal woodland scene. Find the listed items and more online auctions on Bidsquare.

    From Rolex Sea-Dweller to Air-King, NY Elizabeth Presents Luxury Watches

    The watch that conquered the deep ocean is coming to 66 | A Collection of Assorted Timepieces auction at NY Elizabeth. It is the Rolex Sea-Dweller Automatic in stainless steel with a 40mm case. The Rolex Sea-Dweller is waterproof to a depth of 4,000 feet (1,220 meters). The first Sea-Dweller was launched in 1967. This watch is the ultimate manifestation of Rolex’s leadership in divers’ watches and the result of decades of collaboration with diving professionals. From deep sea divers to aviators, Rolex has made watches for record makers and breakers over decades. Other collector’s watches from Rolex like the Air-King, Oyster Perpetual 41, and Datejust are also available in the auction.  Apart from Rolex, this auction offers the world’s most famous reversible watch, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Reverso Grande Night & Day. It is an 18-karat rose gold watch with a 27.50mm case and automatic movement. The story of its origin begins in the middle of the 19th century in Manipur (India), where the Manipur royals and locals played “sagol kangjei,” translating as horse hockey. The players on horseback hit a ball across a rectangular field. British Lieutenant Sherer reported his observations to Captain Robert Stewart, and the two began playing the game that is now known as polo. In 1930, during a visit to India, Swiss native César de Trey encountered polo-playing British officers who sought a robust timekeeper for use during the game. That resulted in the Reverso– a wristwatch that had a case primarily of two parts, one of which was a swiveling capsule that could be pivoted 180 degrees on a hinge.
