Sotheby’s are delighted to present our September sale of fine timepieces including masterpieces by the greatest watchmaker of the late 20th and early 21st century, Dr. George Daniels.
To have four pieces by this important British watchmaker come to the market is an extremely rare and momentous occasion. These wonderful pieces document Dr. Daniels’ journey in watchmaking perfectly and includes the iconic Space Travellers’ watch. This stunning timepiece with Daniels’ independent double-wheel escapement and solar and sidereal time indication was part of his personal collection and often worn by the master of horology.
The sale also includes a wide selection of vintage and modern pieces by leading manufacturers such as Patek Philippe, Rolex, A. Lange & Söhne and Cartier to name but a few. With a vast array precision timepieces, the auction offers the perfect opportunity for connoisseurs of horology to acquire watches that will either compliment an existing collection or initiate the start of a new passion.
