Right behind the Pasha was another Cartier beauty: a Diabolo Tourbillon wristwatch, a rarity produced in limited numbers through the mid-to-late-1990's that's only been going up in value as watch collectors scramble to add unique pieces to their collections. This example was serviced and refinished by Cartier in Switzerland in Dec. 2018. It sold for $29,500.

In all, 215 lots came up for bid. They included wristwatches, pocket watches, rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings and pins. Following are additional highlights from the auction, in which 267 registered bidders placed 5,576 total bids. All prices include an 18 percent buyer's premium.

The auction's runner-up top lot was a stunning platinum 15.45 carat diamond cocktail ring with a claw-set marquise-shaped cut diamond, fancy yellowish brown, weighing 4.32 carats, VS-1 clarity, plus 32 claw-set round brilliant cut diamonds having an approximate total weight of 5.93 carats.
