Lot No. 335 (94th Auction)
A collection of 5 pocket watches

Jules Jürgensen, Copenhagen, Movement No. 10574, Case No. 10574, 50 mm, 101 g, circa 1866

A gentleman's pocket watch - so called "Cut Hunter" - with patented Juergensen bow setting
Case: 18k gold. Dial: enamel. Movm.: ébauche: Piguet Frères, bridge movement, gold screw compensation balance.

It is not only the fine Jürgensen watch that makes this an interesting lot – each one of the timepieces has an 18K gold case and was created by a renowned maker: Breting and Robert, both in Locle, Mathez in Tramelan and John Bennett in London (1814-1897). Sir John Bennet’s pocket watch features a stop seconds mechanism and a 1/5 seconds counter; his premises at Cheapside 65 were for a very long time one of London’s most important watch and clock shops. The front of the building was decorated with an automaton clock that featured life-size figures; it was dismantled in the 1920s and taken to the Henry Ford museum in Michigan. Old photographs that show the shop front with the clock still exist today.
