    This item is part of the HSNY Vault Collection. These items were bequeathed to the Horological Society of New York over 40 years ago, where they were consigned to a vault and forgotten. The current board has re-discovered these treasures, and through deliberation has decided to use them to commence with a new annual charity auction tradition to begin and support the HSNY Endowment Fund.
