The Piaget Haute Joaillerie watch features over 400 diamonds

The watch features a total of 236 baguette cut diamonds, equating to a total weight of 30.6 carats, and 192 round brilliant cut diamonds making up a combined weight of 15.4 carats.

It was manufactured in 1984 and features mechanical lever movement along with a pave-set diamond dial.

A Breguet 1801-2001 anniversary watch made $97,500 against an estimate of $60,000-80,000 - up 22%.

Breguet Hunter Anniversary
The 1801-2001 Breguet anniversary watch was made to celebrate 200 years of the tourbillon

The watch was designed to mark the anniversary of the invention of the tourbillon by Abraham Louis Breguet, the company's founder.

The half hunter case is made from 18k pink gold, and the watch is powered by an eccentric silver engine-turned display - revealed by pressing a button on the crown that lifts the hinged cover.

A one-minute tourbillon carriage is visible through the dial.

Last year, a Duc d'Orleans Breguet Sympathique made $6.8m at Sotheby's in New York, becoming the most valuable Breguet timepiece ever sold at auction.

A Blancpain 18k pink gold limited edition Quattro model, featuring an automatic perpetual calendar and a flyback chronograph tourbillon, realised $93,750 at the present sale - up 17% from an estimate of $50,000-70,000.

We offer this Longines Men's Olympic Series watch for just £950 (approx $1500).
