Timepieces that Transport You to a Different Era

12 November 2020 | Geneva

The fourth and final installment of Masterworks of Time is here, and we are traveling East. Watches created for the Eastern market were made to captivate, enthrall and transport – and items of this sale do just that. A diverse set of highlights include an Enamel and Diamond-set Scent Flacon with Timepiece and Carillon Musical Movement, circa 1790 that will be sure to delight its viewer; the piece does not only tell time, but it also plays music and carries a scent. To view more splendid, multipurpose timepieces, preview Masterworks of Time, Splendours of the East (12 November 2020, Geneva).
