Immediately following the watch sale that day, and on into the next day, October 20th, will be a live-online Chic and Antique Estate Treasures Auction, featuring a curated mix of around 550 lots of fine and decorative arts spanning the 17th century to present day, including a selection of fine property from the Stanley Weiss collection and a fully restored 1962 Roman Red Corvette.
The Moment in Time sale includes a late 1940's Patek Philippe oversized man's watch in rose gold, Ref. 1543. Estimated at $5,000-$10,000, this is a unique opportunity to acquire a piece by the famed Swiss watchmaking firm. There are also a number of Cartier watches and vintage Rolexes dating from the 1920's through the 1970's, most retaining the original box and papers.
An unusual feature of this sale is the large number of excellent early "electric" watches from both Hamilton and Bulova. The Hamiltons include a gold Ventura, a gold-filled Everest, a Savitar and a gold Polaris. There is also a Bulova Accutron Deep Sea watch included in the sale.
"There is a broad and diverse selection of watches for every price point," said Charles Potters when asked about the collection, "as well as a fine selection of hard to get and unusual watch parts." Mr. Potters is serving as a consultant and expert for Nye & Company in this auction.
Headlining the Chic and Antique Estates Treasure auction is property consigned by the highly regarded Rhode Island collector, Stanley Weiss. For over 30 years, Stanley developed an eye for the early American aesthetic, from Queen Anne through the Neoclassical periods. His passion and enthusiasm for quality craftsmanship and select woods are evident in each piece he owned.
