Marquis de Lafayette was an important figure in the American Revolutionary War. The French aristocrat served alongside George Washington in several battles. The two became such good friends that Lafayette named his only son after America’s first president. The upcoming auction of timepieces, presented by Hindman, offers a Jacquemart automation quarter repeater pocket watch once owned by Lafayette. The 18-karat tricolor gold open face timepiece dates back to the early 1800s. It was made in Austria around the time when Lafayette lived there in exile.
Another lot of interest featured in the event is an Avenue Classic wristwatch by Harry Winston. The 18-karat white gold timepiece is embellished with 112 round, brilliant-cut diamonds. A Patek Philippe yellow gold minute repeater open face pocket watch, retailed by Spaulding & Co., is available as well. It is crafted in yellow gold and features a monogram engraved case. Highlights of the event also include timepieces by luxury brands such as Cartier, Breguet, Rolex, and others. Visit Bidsquare to browse the entire catalog or register to bid.
