Dial, movement and deck box signed. DECK BOX 15.3 cm.x 15.3 cm.x 100 cm. INNER DIAM. 94 mm. Invented by LONGINES in 1938, the "Siderograph" measures GREENWICH (0 longitude) SIDEREAL or CIVIL TIME in hour angles, minutes and minutes of arc, and can be considered the final evolution of the marine chronometer. These timepieces allow the user to navigate at night as well as during the daylight hours more accurately than the WEEMS AND LINDBERG systems for nocturnal navigation that were heavily reliant on radio time signals. The "Siderographs" were based on the CHRONOMETER CALIBRE 2129 which was at the time Longines's most accurate movement. The caliber was modified with the addition of the split-seconds mechanisms and anti-magnetic beryllium pallet fork. The movement was then cased in a heat-toughened aluminum case.This is a non-magnetic, light, non-ferrous material suited for use for use in: AERONAUTIC and MARITIME applications. The present lot is one of a handful of examples known to exist in a GIMBALLED DECK BOX, an indication it was intended for use aboard a ship.

DIAM. 57 mm. Granted a US patent for its movement design in 1884, the GIRARD-PERREGAUX three golden bridge tourbillon is the most iconic and inarguably the most visually appealing tourbillon movement ever designed. From the few original examples that have appeared publicly, all featuring minor variations, it can be assumed the movements were built by hand to order and each one could be considered as a unique creation. Of the pocket watches using the Girard-Perregaux three golden bridge tourbillon movement, the most legendary example is perhaps No. 168230, known as the LA ESMERALDA. Sold by the important jewelry and watch retailer La Esmeralda operated by HAUSER ZIVY & CIE in Mexico City, the piece is known to have been owned by the President of Mexico, PORFIRIO DIAZ (1830 -1915) and later by his descendants. The movement, housed within a highly ornate gold case finished by a renowned engraver FRITZ KUNDERT, was awarded a bulletin at the Neuchatel Observatory in 1889, and subsequently winning a gold medal at the Paris Universal Exposition later that same year. The watch now rests within the Girard-Perregaux museum. The present lot with NO. 189119 represents one of very few examples to use the same Perregaux calibre movement with the earlier pivoted detent escapement design identical to the "La Esmeralda". In research, this is the only other example with the same movement/balance combination sold by the same retailer to appear at auction in recent years.
