A perennial favorite among collectors, “World Time” watches and clocks indicate time in all 24-hour time zones. Along with dual-time watches, these timepieces are particularly relevant in this era of global interaction and dependency. For its June 15 sale in New York, Patrizzi & Co Auctioneers plans to present a captivating selection of “World Time” men’s and women’s wristwatches, pocket watches and clocks, along with other collector-level timepieces.

More than 200 timepieces, including the World Times, will be offered in the auction, with two sessions at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. in the company’s gallery on the sixth floor of 595 Madison Avenue. A three-day Silent Sale of an additional 150 to 200 watches will be held from Saturday, June 12, to Monday, June 14.

“World Time clocks and wristwatches eloquently capture a geographic history of the world,” said Osvaldo Patrizzi, president and chief executive officer of Patrizzi & Co.

“These timepieces preserve the evolution of timekeeping and international capitals, going back to the magnificent clock from 1630 that we sold last summer in our Renaissance Clocks auction in Milan.” World Time watches and clocks in this auction date from circa 1940 to 2009, including models from Patek Philippe, Breguet and Vacheron Constantin.

For the first time, the auction collection will preview in Shanghai where Patrizzi & Co has established a new office.
