Provenance - The Francis Payne Collection of Pocket Watches

Francis Payne was a successful consulting and mining engineer working out of London offices in the early years of the last Century. His collection was formed mainly between 1910 – 1930, the result of what he considered to be his ‘Favourite Recreation, He developed contacts with various leading retailers and Auction Houses at the time. Several pieces offered here retain original invoices from Louis Desoutter, who also carried out some repairs. There are also interesting original invoices and letters from Breguet and others.
The collection has remained in the Payne family ever since and none of these watches will have been seen on the open market in recent times
