Parmigiani's Historical Viewpoint

This fall, about 50 pieces from the Edouard and Maurice Sandoz Foundation collection will venture out of Switzerland for the first time, taking up temporary residence from October 26 by way of November 26 at A La Vieille Russie, a Manhattan gallery that has specialized in uncommon performs for 160 many years. The exhibit will showcase masterpieces by the Russian master jeweler Peter Carl Faberge, furthermore to a number of horological treasures which includes pocket watches, a perfume spray gun, automaton watches, cages with songbirds, snuffboxes, and automaton animals.

To celebrate the event, the foundation's official restorer, Michel Parmigiani, whom Sandoz backed in launching his own brand, will unveil two new wristwatches inspired by pieces in the exhibition. A circa-1800 oval-shaped Vardon and Stedman pocket watch was the impetus for any wristwatch ($100,000, restricted to 300 pieces) with telescopic hands that stretch and contract to the contours of its oblong case. Along with the new Toric Minute Repeater wristwatch ($600,000, limited to 3 pieces) using a sector display references a signed Perrin Freres pocket watch dating towards the early 19th century.
