Antique and Vintage Clocks and Watches.
Before the 1920's and 30's pocket watches were by far the most common form of personal timepiece, this changed when major wrist watch manufacturers began paying Hollywood Stars to wear wrist watches on and off screen, and you thought product placement was a recent phenomena. Wrist watches became the norm for personal timepieces and they continue to be so today, although they too are evolving with new technology and added functions.
Antique and Vintage Clocks, Watches and Timepieces (a Timepiece is a clock without a striking mechanism) are highly collectible and cover a vast array of types, styles and budgets. Here at Top Banana we have specialist dealers in wristwatches and carriage clocks, with such well known brands such as Cartier, Rotary and Zenith being represented amongst the wristwatches. Whilst amongst other French and American Carriage Clocks we have a late 19th Century French Petite Sonnerie Carriage Clock by Margaine and a late 19th Century Repeating Carriage Clock by Henri Jacot complete with it's original Morocco leather traveling case. Our other dealers also have examples of various other forms of watches and clocks, including pocket watches, mantle clocks and wall clocks.
