Pictured above is a Boucheron art deco table clock from about 1921. The clock is in gold and black enamel on mostly rock crystal (very hard to cut). This piece is estimated to go for 80,000 - 100,000 Swiss Francs at auction. Other notable lots include a yellow gold Patek Philippe Ref. 5024 minute repeater from 1997 (estimated to go for 250,000 - 300,000 Swiss Francs), and a yellow gold Patek Philippe Ref. 2438-1 from 1953 (also estimated to go for 250,000 - 300,000 Swiss Francs). The auction results will be testament to the current strength of the watch collector market.
