around the globe
Our forthcoming Quarterly Specialist Sale on

complicated Self-Winding ‘Padellone’ wristwatch. Padellone is Italian
for large frying pan and the nickname derives from the unusually large
38mm case for the period.
In the same family from new, the watch was the
property of a British diplomat domiciled in Monaco. Made between
1949-52 this 1950/51 example is no. 036 and has an 18ct gold case,
triple date and moon phase, the dial inscribed ‘Officially Certified
Chronometer’. In good original condition the watch carries a
pre-sale estimate of £22,000 - £28,000,
