Asprey & Company Mystery Clock

2 minute read

 

This extraordinary mystery clock by Asprey & Company is absolutely captivating in both its mechanical complexity and gorgeous artistry. It was almost certainly designed for the legendary collection of the Sultan of Brunei, a man notorious for his voracious appetite for rare luxuries. An unquestionably beautiful and sumptuous design, the clock is contained within a stunning 18k white gold, crystal, and mother of pearl Pagoda-style case. Dazzling diamonds border the elegant form, while sapphires further adorn the quilted mother of pearl. A frosted glass apse serves as the clock face, where the time is told on clock hands set with sapphires.  A wonder from top to bottom, this marvelous piece is fitted with a door on the reverse to conceal the quartz mechanism and complex setting.
