Invented in 1931 by Swiss watchmaker Louis Cottier, the Worldtime wristwatch displays all 24 time zones in a single timepiece. Patek Philippe was the first company to launch this watch through its Worldtime collection in 1939 after entering a partnership with Cottier. The upcoming Hindman auction features an 18-karat pink gold Worldtime wristwatch by Patek Philippe. It has a matte silvered dial with central guilloche engraving, a dark blue revolving diurnal and nocturnal chapter ring, and applied gold baton numerals. An 18-karat pink gold watch by Patek Philippe is also among the leading listings. The Calatrava wristwatch has a brown leather strap, matte silvered dial, and gold numerals. A dress watch line, Calatrava is best known for its elegant looks and simple design.
The catalog includes an 18-karat yellow gold and diamond Oyster Perpetual Day-Date wristwatch by Rolex. The brand developed the Oyster line of waterproof wristwatches in 1926. In the following year, the British swimmer Mercedes Gleitze endorsed the model by wearing an Oyster in her necklace while swimming across the English Channel.
