Accordingly, prospective purchasers should familiarize themselves with relevant customs regulations prior to bidding if they intend to import this lot into another country..Pre-Lot Text.Determining the longitudes, chronometry and observatory trials, a brief historical introduction.We thank Arnaud Tellier, horological expert, former director and curator of the Patek Philippe Museum, Geneva..With the invention of the pendulum in the late 1650s, then of the balance spring in 1675, horology could claim the status of an exact science. This considerable progress is due to Christiaan Huygens (1629-1695), Dutch mathematician, astronomer and physicist..In the early eighteenth century, the improvement of the adjusting of timepieces became obvious, nevertheless, it was also true that the search for absolute accuracy was just at its beginning..The precision of clocks and watches is essential since, once embarked on a ship, they can be used to determine the longitude, that is, to finds one's position in the middle of the ocean. The maritime nations of the time - England, Spain, France and the Netherlands - were dismayed by the disasters caused by errors in longitude. For example, the loss of the squadron under the command of Sir Cloudesley Shovell (1650-1707), which shipwrecked on the Isles of Scilly (or Sorlingues) while believing they were in the English Channel (1707), had such a strong impact that years later the British Parliament organized a contest for any method of defining the longitude at sea, offering as incentive 10'000 for a result not exceeding 1 degree of error, 15'000 for 40 minutes and 20'000 for 1/2 degree or less. This was the famous contest of Queen Anne in 1714..In London, the work of Henri Sully (1680-1729), George Graham (1673-1751) and John Harrison (1693-1776) marked the beginning of the eighteenth century. It was in 1735 that Harrison won the contest with his H1 chronometer, but only in 1751 was he able to obtain the first part of the award presented upon the construction of a fourth version. Later on, in 1773, the support offered by King George III (1738-1820) helped him receive the second half of the award for his fifth chronometer. It should also be noted that in 1757, in London, Thomas Mudge (1715-1794) developed the first watch equipped with a lever escapement which since then has been universally used in horology..In France, the watchmakers were equally concerned with the longitude issue. In 1766, Pierre Le Roy (1717-1785) presented in Paris his first chronometer. He built it on entirely new principles that were preserved as the basis of the modern chronometry (detent escapement, isochronous spring, self-compensating balance equipped with adjustable compensation weights, temperature compensation with mercury). He also presented a bi-metallic compensation balance and established the Pierre Le Roy rule stating that for each spring there is a length that makes it isochronous. In 1768, his great rival, Ferdinand Berthoud (1727-1807), completed the first of his marine pieces and also invented a compensation balance. In 1770, Pierre Le Roy was awarded the two prizes offered successively by the Royal Academy of Sciences for the best way of measuring time at sea..In 1772, John Arnold (1736-1799) built in London his first bi-metallic compensation balance based on the principles established by Pierre Le Roy, later on, in 1790, he improved the spring detent escapement. Another British watchmaker, Thomas Earnshaw (1749-1829), developed a marine chronometer so advanced and perfected that its basic principle remained unchanged until the advent of quartz clocks. The rivalry between the two watchmakers was as strong as the one between Le Roy and Berthoud..Chronometry developed in England of the eighteenth century to the point of becoming an industry, while in France it also grew to be an important manufacture under the guidance of Pierre-Louis Berthoud (1754-1813), Ferdinand Berthoud's nephew and disciple, who invented his own pivoted detent escapement..The siècle des Lumières is the time when the marine chronometers were tested in long and perilous journeys. The nineteenth century was when the tests in the astronomical observatories helped verify scientifically several chronometers at once..As early as 1766, the Greenwich Royal Observatory, near London, organized sporadically the first precision contests. In 1823, the British Admiralty created a contest with 300, 200 and 100 Pounds Sterling in prize money, hoping that this way it will acquire for its fleet the best chronometers. Similarly, and at the same time, the French Royal Navy paid 2400 Francs for the award winning chronometers..In 1790, Geneva witnessed the first precision contest among chronometers held at the Society for the Advancement of the Arts. Later on, in 1816, the Astronomical Observatory of Geneva hosted the creation of a trial, which subsequently was conducted only occasionally. It was not until 1879 that this type of contest became an institution. The precision level of the watches is evaluated through a points system set at that time by Emile Plantamour (1815-1882), Director of the Observatory. This system with prizes (1st, 2nd and 3rd prize, then honorable mention or without) and different classes (marine chronometer, deck or pocket, with or without special features), was shortly after joined in 1884 by the Astronomical Observatory of Kew and Teddington in Great Britain and, in 1885, by that of the Astronomical Observatory of Besançon, in France. The contests organized by the Neuchâtel, Hamburg and Washington observatories also enjoyed greatest consideration. Unfortunately, it hasn't been possible to standardize the tests between the different countries, so today it is impossible to compare their results. In addition to publishing the rankings in the official publications, the award winning time-pieces also received an official certificate of accuracy and a gold, silver or bronze medal..Patek Philippe and the Timing Competitions.Patek Philippe watches participated with remarkable success at many of the trials which soon became very important events, nationally and internationally. In 1884 and 1895, the Geneva manufacturer managed to also win the prestigious series prize for the five most precise pocket watches. Between 1900 and 1939 - the year when the firm celebrated its centennial - it won 764 prizes in Geneva, of which 187 were first prizes, this represents more than half of the prizes awarded during that time..Between 1943 and 1966, Patek Philippe presented 480 times to the Geneva Astronomical Observatory movements (simple, with no complications) from the D category (format not exceeding 30 mm in diameter or 706.86 mm2) and 27 times movements with a tourbillion regulator. As these movements could be presented on several occasions over the years, it would be difficult to determine the exact number of manufactured wristwatch chronometer movements. Moreover, many of them would never be sold and are currently preserved in the vaults of the manufacturer and the company's own museum..Patek Philippe did also compete in contests abroad. This is particularly the case during the 1960s when the manufacturer received the highest British distinction, the Craftsmanship Test, introduced in 1951. Only twelve watches can claim to have won it, amongst them the Patek Philippe pocket watch with tourbillon, No 198'423, having furthermore achieved the best results ever. The Observatory of Geneva tests were interrupted in 1967, with the arrival of quartz watches..The COSC.Today only COSC (Contrôle Officiel Suisse de Chronométrie the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute) performs accuracy testing and issues certificates. A law dated November 6th, 1886 on testing the accuracy of the pocket watches at the Geneva Observatory, set the conditions, certified through an official engraved hallmark, where the Geneva quality is applied to certain watches. This stamp has the same value as an official accuracy certificate and allows qualifying the watch as a chronometer. After several amendments and additions in 1891, 1931 and 1955, made necessary by the technical progress, the regulation on testing of the mechanical watches received its final form on April 5th, 1957..View.Lot Notes ›
