About Catawiki's clock auction
The keeping of time has been a crucial part of human civilisation for thousands of years. The ancient Egyptians divided the day into two 12 hour periods and developed water clocks known as Clepsydra. Since then, technological advancement has increased the accuracy of timekeeping devices, with the world’s most advanced clock being the Strontium Lattice Clock. This device is an atomic clock so precise, that it neither gains nor loses a second in five billion years. In addition to being highly practical objects, clocks are also been things of beauty, with fine clocks fetching large prices around the world. One of the most expensive clocks to sell in recent years was Patek Philippe’s “The Magpie’s Treasure Nest Clock”, which sold in 2013 for $2.31 million.
