The Hammerman Brothers – Benjamin, Bernard, and Hyman – were the descendants of an Eastern European craftsman. After their service in World War II ended, the trio set up a jewelry manufacturing company. As they expanded their business, they acquired the Bermont Diamond Company, securing an in-house supply of gems. An 18-karat gold, diamond, and pearl necklace by Hammerman Jewels is one of the leading lots in the upcoming Fine Jewelry and Watches auction, presented by Hampton Estate Auction. Another highlight of the sale is a Patek Philippe Aquanaut steel watch (ref 5167 1A) designed with a black embossed dial, white Arabic numerals, and a self-winding mechanical function. The Swiss luxury watchmaker is known for manufacturing some of the most complicated mechanical watches in the world.
The auction will also feature a Rolex Yacht-Master II blue bezel steel watch. Designed to be a sports watch, the Yacht-Master was first introduced in 1992. The company released the Rolex Yacht-Master II regatta chronograph watch in 2007. It is known to be the world’s first watch equipped with a programmable countdown from 1 to 10 minutes and a mechanical memory.
