Our October sale comprises a diverse collection of horological and scientific curiosities. We begin with an array of American and European pocket watches, followed by a group of vintage and contemporary wristwatches; makers include Patek Philippe, Rolex, LeCoultre, and Longines. Two Tornek-Rayville TR-900 dive watches highlight the sale: a non-issued signed-dial example and a “sterile dial” with issued serial number.

Clock highlights include a wonderful Simon Willard tall clock with Isaiah Thomas Jr. printed label and case attributed to Thomas Seymour, a 17th century basket-top bracket clock by Benjamin Bell, and a Henton Brown hour-strike musical bracket clock. Also of note is a signed Walter Durfee harp-pattern timepiece.

Amongst many scientific works, two unusual collections of medical instruments follow—from 18th century trepanning and amputation sets to 20th century anatomical models. A small Massachusetts collection of Cartier and S.T. Dupont fountain and roller ball pens and limited edition lighters complete with their boxes and paperwork round out the sale.
