HEADLINERS:
 
JUST IN BEFORE DEADLINE, A MAGNIFICENT HEADLINER:
 Above, 18K gold and amethyst Alfred Dunhill table lighter in the style of a lighthouse perched atop a rocky shore, set with 9 rectangular cut AAA quality amethysts, solid amethyst base weighing in excess of 100 lbs, lighthouse base with engraved and textured pattern to look like bricks with a small ladder leading up to a fenced ledge with a small door, the base tapers to a second fenced ledge and then onto a third fenced ledge at the top, hinged top opens to reveal a hand held gas lighter in the same brick design as the base also in 18K yellow gold, the hollow interior of the lighthouse is wired to function as a light with the top sending out a cool purple glow to compliment the base. Lighthouse measures 18 inches tall from base of ladder to top of spire x 5-3/4 inches at the widest point of the base, removable lighter measures 32mm x 154mm, amethyst base measures 22 inches x 25 inches x 7 inches at the tallest point. This particular piece was sold in Dunhill's 1985 Christmas collection for $56,000 and held the Guinness world record for decades for the most expensive table lighter in the world!
 
TWO OTHER HEADLINERS:
         
Above, Rolex Cosmograph Daytona, reference 6265, fresh to market having sat in a safety deposit box since the mid 1980s, completely unpolished with box, papers and matching hang tags.
 
      
Above, an exceedingly rare watch, one of the most impressive American watches in existence, Waltham minute repeater with split-seconds chronograph and 60-minute register, 16-17J, 16S, in very heavy 18K gold.
This is one of only two total examples of which we are aware!  The lone other example of a split-seconds minute repeating Waltham that we have encountered is serial number 3793206 (a consecutive serial number to the presently offered watch) which was sold by Sothebys in 2004, was formerly a part of the Rockford Time Museum collection, and had a case noted as "reconstructed" with "new covers, bow, crown, & stem" per Donald Hoke's "The Time Museum Historical Catalogue of American Watches."  The presently offered example is notable for its superb condition throughout including its very heavy original gold hunting case made by prestigious New York casemaker Jeannot & Shiebler.  In all an exquisitely beautiful piece, and we are thrilled to offer it in our November Live Auction Event to the collecting community!
