Lot 4227shape watch: Museum enamel brooch "tortoise" with a built-in clock, visible balance-wheel, and a rich diamond trim, attributed to Piguet et Capt, Geneva, circa 1810
Approximately 72 × 42mm, approx. 51g, Gold, version of the stones of silver, a brooch worked as a turtle, on the shell of the 8-square bezel of the watch with a rich diamond trim, surrounded by blue enamel, the entire upper side of the turtle with exceptionally large diamonds, the structure of the dial, typical for a work of Piguet & Capt, in the upper area of the small Enamel subdial for the time, including the visible, diamond-balance wheel, and below the small seconds hand, bottom of the turtle brooch, under a hinged flap on the hidden movement with sliding lock, including four-square for equality, Elevator and regulatory, very nice condition, factory complete with swinging balance wheel is, however, a Service is needed. The clock is a Museum rarity, with great probability, from the house of Piguet et Capt, Geneva, circa 1810. Similar objects are known, however, to the best of our knowledge, none of the stand which is occupied only approximately so precious with diamonds. Gold/enamel objects with similar watches achieve in auction high 6-digit amounts, e.g., a fan, also a Piguet & Capt attributed to 386.000 CHF (source: https://www.cortrie.de/go/WKW).
