The last opportunity to acquire the extremely rare Howard, Davis, Dennison #3 22 size 8 day complete and all original watch sells for $300,000 at the JH auction today in NH.

Opening at 70K the bidding was fast and ferocious and settled in at 300K TO AN UNKNOWN PHONE BIDDER.

This is the all time publc auction sale record for an American watch!

Does Walter Prendel's Tourbillon count at all as an American watch? I know it is kind of an aberration and I don't know how much of it was made in the US.

I agree but was any of it made here or did he make it before he came over. I just don't know.

So, from the research I have been able to do, Prendel's watch was built during the time from 1927-28. He came to the US in 1929 so the watch was not made in the US.

John

You were 1/2 way there.

It is cited by Timezone to be the most expensive GERMAN pocket Watch ever sold for a price of $739,939 USD.

It is the basis for the angled tourbillon WW's being made today.

I wouldn't mind owning it. Very Happy

How about the Patek Caliber 89?

Well...the 89 is the auction king but I will never own it so I will aspire to a simple Patek 5204 perpetual calendar, split second chronograph wrist watch.
