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.”

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
