First published: 22-11-2011

A selection of fine watches and clocks are set to go under the hammer next month at Bonhams auction house.

The auctioneer has announced the fine watches, clocks and wristwatches sale will be taking place on December 8th 2011 in the city, with the sale itself simulcast on the other side of the country in San Francisco.

Highlights include the sale of 25 complicated modern mechanical wristwatches, which are being sold in impeccable condition.

"The watches and clocks in this sale span three centuries - from the earliest pendulum clock of the 1660s to fine and modern complicated wristwatches," said Jonathan Snellenburg, Bonhams US Director of Watches and Clocks.

He described the sale as being like a tour of the history of timekeeping.

Another noted auction taking place next month is the sale of the jewellery once owned by Elizabeth Taylor, which is being conducted as a special online auction by Christie's.
