Jean-Marc Vacheron was closely associated with leading figures in the French Enlightenment, including Rousseau and Voltaire. Using their scientific and liberalist ideas, Vacheron started expanding his work in mechanical watchmaking. After 258 years, Vacheron Constantin continues to be the oldest operational watch brand still in existence. Some of its patrons include Queen Elizabeth II, Napoléon Bonaparte, John D. Rockefeller, Harry S. Truman, and the Wright brothers. The upcoming High Jewelry, Watches, and Fine Jewelry Auction, presented by Morton Subastas, offers a Vacheron Constantin Overseas watch with a diamond bezel, set in 18-karat yellow gold.
Launched in 1955, Audemars Piguet’s Millenary Collection was named in honor of the impending third millennium. To give their watches a three-dimensional depth, the company introduced an elliptical case and off-centered dial designs, making Millenaries one of their boldest collections. Featured in this sale is a Millenary watch in an 18-karat pink gold case. This sale also includes timepieces from Cartier, Rolex, and Bell & Ross. Montblanc pens, cufflinks, and diamond and gold jewelry will be presented as well. Explore the full listings and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
