It tells time for 40 different cities at once.

A Patek Phillippe World Time wristwatch from 1949 – the headliner of the Sotheby’s Important Watches auction in New York City on Wednesday – is expected to sell for $1.2 million, according to Robb Report. The article describes the watch like so: “Integrated into an 18-karat yellow-gold case, the rotating bezel bears the inscription of 40 cities. Once the local time is set (by aligning the name with the 12 o’clock position), the recessed 24-hour indicator will automatically adjust to concurrently display the time for all other locations, as well as a two-tone reference for day and night. And gold roman numerals, baton indexes, and lys hands present the hours and minutes.”

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
