    Antiquorum to auction FDR, Charlie Chaplin watches
    "Geneva—Watch auctioneer Antiquorum will hold its "Important Collectors' Watches, Pocket Watches and Clocks" sale in Geneva from May 12-13.

    Included among the auction's nearly 700 lots are watches formerly owned by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Charlie Chaplin, as well as horological documents and tools, and a collection of 400 watch keys.

    Antiquorum says one of the main highlights of the sale is the rare and important platinum Patek Philippe minute-repeating wristwatch, Ref. 5033, which will take its place on the auction block for the first time. A second highlight is a make by the same manufacturer, Ref. 5016, also in platinum.

    The auction will feature a number of watches with historical provenance, including an 18-karat rose gold and polychrome enamel minute-repeating pocket watch by Le Roy and Fils, circa 1890, that once belonged to Franklin D. Roosevelt. The watch, lot 302, is estimated at $90,000-$105,000.


    An IWC wristwatch, lot 303, formerly owned by silent film star Charlie Chaplin (right), is estimated at $15,000-$18,000. Antiquorum says the center-seconds, self-winding watch in 18-karat pink gold is accompanied by the extract from the archives and a hand-written letter by Chaplin's son, Eugene Chaplin, attesting to the watch's authenticity."
