Auction Description

Clocks, Watches & Scientific Instruments by Skinner
Preview by appointment only by contacting us at 508.970.3201 or clocks@skinnerinc.com. Visit our notification page for up-to-date schedule information: https://skinnerinc.com/about/covid-19/ 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. This auction is available only over the internet. Log in or create a new account on the Skinner website to participate. Contact Us 508.970.3201 clocks@skinnerinc.com Read more
