Lot No. 20 (99th Auction)
A collection of 2 Glashütte pocket watches

Wilhelm Eisenhardt / Deutsche Uhrmacherschule Glashütte i/SA, Case No. 1709, 55 mm, 122 g, circa 1906

A silver graduate's piece with original box - manufactured in quality 1A
Case: silver, monogram "WE". Dial: enamel. Movm.: 3/4 plate movement, gold screw compensation balance.

"Only very few of the surviving Glashütte graduation pieces still come in their original boxes and with graduation papers, and such sets are certainly considered special by the collectors.", comments the web page on this particular timepiece Wilhelm Eisenhardt of Hamburg created in 1906 at the German watchmaking school. What is more, it also comes in quality standard 1A (the highest level), featuring a minute wheel with screwed gold chatons and an exquisitely engraved pallet bridge - with all parts in outstanding condition. Last but not least the watch fulfils many of the criteria a collector listed for Glashütte graduation pieces when he published some photographs of the Eisenhardt watch in its original box in 2011 as part of an article in "Klassik Uhren": the name of the maker and the date on the plate, the signed dial, the engraved, steel-chatoned pallet bridge, the maker’s initials, the "DUS" (German watchmaking school) signature on the cuvette and the typical silver case,…

Unfortunately we only have a copy and not the original of the graduation certificate Wilhelm Eisenhardt of Hamburg received from the German watchmaking school in Glashütte after his training, which lasted from May 1, 1905 to May 8, 1906. A movement model made by Eisenhardt has also survived.
