The “Effinger” clock dated from 1783 and signed Jaquet-Droz, has been sold at CHF 256,000.-, which is more than three times the starting bid of CHF 70,000.-, during the Koller auction on March the 31st 2022.
With this auction, Jaquet Droz continues with its exceptional sales momentum such as at Only Watch (where the Grande Seconde Tourbillon Only Watch, estimated at CHF 160,000.-, was sold for CHF 200,000.-), Christie's (with a pair of historical watches estimated at CHF 50,000.-, finally sold for CHF 250,000.-) and Shanghai Jia He (where the piece accompanied by its NFT version, priced at CHF 250,000.-, was sold for CHF 530,413.-). Jaquet Droz once again demonstrates the sustained interest in its timepieces, both “Disruptive” and “Legacy”.
