Antiquorum Auctioneers, the world's premier auctioneers of modern and vintage timepieces, together with Mishal Kanoo, Deputy Chairman of The Kanoo Group, announced a two-day exhibition on November 1st & 2nd, 2014 at the Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel in Dubai to preview the highlights of the ‘Important Modern & Vintage Timepieces’ auction to be held in Geneva. The Dubai-based event will place the spotlight on the exceptional Singing Bird Cage Clock and an outstanding Patek Philippe Ref. 2499, Third Series in addition to featuring more than 200 exclusive timepieces.

Antiquorum will be hosting its ‘Important Modern & Vintage Timepieces’ auction on November 8th & 9th, 2014 at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Geneva. To allow collectors to preview highlights from its impressive collection, the auctioneer is holding events in cities such as Zurich, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, Dubai and Geneva.

The top highlight of the exhibition is unquestionably the Exceptional Early & Small Singing Bird Cage Clock with Automaton Jumping Bird & Automaton Waterfall attributed to Jaquet-Droz et Leschot Geneva. Made circa 1785, this is an extremely fine and diminutive, gilded-brass, automaton singing bird clock with “jumping” early-type painted bird with automated beak, wings, tail and automaton waterfall activated at will and by the clock every three hours. Collectors will appreciate the magical jumping effect of the bird, the delicacy of workmanship in the cage’s construction as well as the “ball and claw feet” that are distinctive of the workshop Jaquet-Droz.

Another outstanding highlight of the auction is the Patek Philippe Ref. 2499, Third Series retailed by Beyer (Zurich). Made in 1980 and from the property of the original owner, this is a very fine and rare 18K gold wristwatch with round button chronograph, 30-minute register, perpetual calendar and moon phases. It is accompanied by the Extract from the Archives.

Some of the other highlights from the exclusive showcase are:

This outstanding timepiece is one of the most complicated wristwatches ever made and required six years of research, development and testing before it could be presented. It is offered with a fitted wooden box, loupe, setting pin, instruction annual, Blancpain collection booklet and hand-written certificate.

Patek Philippe enthusiasts will also want to bid on the Patek Philippe Ref. 5004, made in 1998.

This remarkable timepiece is accompanied by the user manual/guarantee.

Also offered from Patek Philippe is the exceptional Patek Philippe Celestial, Ref. 5102, made in 2003.
