The upcoming Fine Pocket Watches Auction, offered by Morphy Auctions, presents a selection of timepieces from several notable brands. One highlight is a Marius LeCoultre 18-karat pink gold chronograph pocket watch with the moon phases and retrograde dates marked. Below the hand-decorated gold case of the pocket watch is the interior enamel dial with blued steel fleur-de-lis hands.
The origin of grande sonnerie watches dates back to the discovery of the chiming clock. Over the years, chiming clocks changed, and the grande sonnerie clocks resulted from extensive horological experiments. These clocks have a striking function and chime automatically at every quarter hour. Showcased in this sale is a late 1800s Swiss grande sonnerie watch with an engraved gold cover. The front of the pocket watch shows a cowboy on horseback chasing the two ostriches on the back. This auction also features a Touchon & Co. platinum open face pocket watch for Tiffany & Co., as well as pocket watches by Vacheron & Constantin, Gold Cooke & Kelvey, and Montandon & Co. Interested collectors can explore the full listings and register to bid online on Morphy Auctions.
