2020 STAFF FAVORITES
This year was challenging for everyone, but we were fortunate to be able to continue our online auctions throughout the year to the delight of our friends and clients. Many commented that our watch lots were a source of true enjoyment of the hobby during a time that the NAWCC and other watch shows had to shut down.
We were again honored to sell an iconic watch this year, a Waltham minute repeater with split-seconds chronograph and 60-minute register, in very heavy 18K gold hunter case. This is one of only two total examples of which we are aware! It sold for $100,000, making it one of only three American pocket watches to sell for $100,000 or more at public auction. We have now sold two of those three watches!
