Catalogue Note

With its cleanly retained lines and attractive stepped sides, the present lot is a true pleasure and beauty to behold. It is rare to find a piece nearly a century old in such excellent condition, and often rectangular watches have suffered extensive polishing over the years. Not so with the present example; indeed, it is hard to imagine that it was worn much at all. Our only evidence that it was worn is the charming and historic father-son image of director Josef von Sternberg wearing the watch with his baby son Nicholas on his shoulders, on location in Kyoto filming Anahatan in 1953.
