Bonhams Watches’ first sale of the year takes place tomorrow, February 18, with 240 lots spanning much of the history of timekeepers, starting with a circa 1900 pocket watch made by Baume & Co and ending with a 2018 Bremont GMT (pictured above).
Today’s most prestigious watchmakers might affix a six figure price tag to a gold watch with a perpetual calendar chronograph with minute repeating grande sonnerie and moonphase.

Other key lots, with estimates and descriptions from Bonhams, include:
