On Saturday July 25, 2009, Skinner hosts their Science, Technology & Clock auction. Many of the lots deal with maritime technology, but there are also some fine pocket watches scattered throughout. Above is a trio of “three dollar” watches made by Ingersoll of New York. One of them is inscribed “St. Louis Worlds Fair, 1904,” another “Souvenir Pan American Exposition 1901, Buffalo, NY, USA.” The third watch is the “Eclipse” model with a blue dial. Excellent pieces of Americana at a fair valuation.
The auction will be held in Marlborough, MA. View the catalog at Skinner.
