Sometimes we see things we didn’t know existed.

As a pocket watch collector this combo makes my heart sing and the box, well, that’s a true rarity.

Cheers Kent

Truly something I never would have thought to have existed! yes I imagine it was a specially made case, perhaps by a dealer?  I have a CR, but not the CG. Thanks for sharing this! Best Regards, Dan
Very impressive, Kent!

That's a pity, Kent, however...

I enjoyed sharing this most attractive combination with you. It's surprising what a keen pair of eye's can spot. Well done!! Best wishes Tony
I wonder if they were subscription watches?

Perhaps this pair was offered together in the lottery subscription scheme of Gondolo & Labouriau in Rio de Janeiro!  Unfortunately the auction site doesn't reveal if a merchant's name is present frown but states "sold in their original box"....hmmmm.  They offered the Patek from 1902 and according to VC, Campos Jewelers, also in Rio de Janeiro, begat the Chronometre Royal subscription in 1907, but who's to say they didn't collaborate... What would certainly add to this lovely pair would be a gold-cased Waltham Chronometro Supremo, that also competed in the South America around the same time.
