Auctions: 9 watch ideas to treat yourself to for Father's Day


SELECTION - What if, for Father's Day, you indulged yourself by offering yourself a timepiece at auction? Direction Bordeaux this Sunday, June 20.

What could be more entertaining than buying a watch at auction for fun?

The Bordeaux Quinconces auction house is offering a sale on Sunday 20 June, Father's Day, at 2 p.m., under the hammer of Me Alain Courau and Me Maxence Mazzoni, with CEA watchmaking experts Jean-Christophe Guyon and Alexandre Leger.

The opportunity for a new generation of collectors to afford a beautiful vintage piece at a reasonable price.

For example, we can spot a Compax Sport Chronograph - Quantième Marine, (circa 1964, lot 49), a rare and exceptional Marine chronograph with triple calendar complications.

It carries a mechanical hand-wound Caliber signed Ulysse Nardin based on Valjoux (€ 5,500 / € 7,000).

Breiting enthusiasts may be tempted by a first generation Chronomat chronograph in rose gold (Ref. 769, circa 1949, lot 50).

This rare first-generation pilot's chronograph in 18-carat pink gold combines a fluted bezel and a numbered and signed clipped caseback.

A 36 mm chronograph which is an integral part of the Breitling legend (€ 4,000 / 5,000).


For Jaeger-LeCoultre, lots 9 and 10 offer a duo of men's and women's watches.

The female model, produced for the house of Hermès (Ref. 1671, circa 1969, € 1,400 / 1,800) stands out for the sobriety of its hoop fasteners and its simple steel case.

Men's steel watch Ref.

9041 (circa 1972, € 3,000 / 3,500) has basically become unisex with its rectangular case 29 x 42 mm with large hoop clips.

A piece fitted with a manual winding Jaeger-LeCoultre mechanical caliber.


Lots 21 to 24 present a very good example of creations signed Vacheron Constantin, between Classic History / Cow horn 34 mm - Yellow gold (Ref. 92239, circa 1998, 5,000 / 6,000 €), Classic Stylized horns / Petite Seconde - Gold Jaune (Ref. 6066, circa 1955, € 3,000 / 3,500), and a Patrimony Classique / Petite Seconde - Or Jaune (Ref. 92060 / 000j-4, circa 1997, € 5,000 / 6,000).

Without forgetting a Carrée Style Toledo - Yellow gold (Ref. 4963, circa 1958, € 2,500 / 3,000).


The most sophisticated collectors will perhaps be tempted by a lot as rare as it is surprising: an 8 Days Hermès Marine Desk Clock by Jaeger-LeCoultre (lot 84, € 1,000 / 1,500), from the 1950s. This desk clock in the shape of a marine pulley with porthole bezel has a bronze and gilded brass case, and is signed YCNF With its double signature Jaeger-LeCoultre and Hermès and its mechanical manual winding caliber / 8 days, it would have its place on board. a collector's boat!
