This auction features exciting fresh-to-the-market vintage and contemporary wristwatches—some with wonderful provenance. Pocket watches include late 19th and early 20th century “complicated” movements and a number of fine American and European time-only examples. American clocks range from early patent timepieces or “banjo” clocks to tall clocks by revered makers such as Willard, Cummens, and Abiel Chandler, as well as “hall clocks” by Walter H. Durfee.
Highlighting the sale’s scientific portion is a live steam model of a Boston and Albany 4-6-6 “402” locomotive, circa 1945, with extensive documentation. Also on offer is a small collection of French luxury pens and lighters by S.T. Dupont and Cartier, and the private collection and remaining inventory from the Camera Craftsman store and workshop of Boston, Massachusetts.
