Notes

The ATMOS clock was invented by NEUCH TEL engineer JEAN-LÉON REUTTER (1899-1971). From his youth, he wanted to produce a clock that could be wound by atmospheric fluctuations, and in 1928 he succeeded. Reutter’s patent was first licensed to a French company who exploited it until 1935. Subsequently, it was purchased by JAEGER LECOULTRE. After difficult early years, by 1979 there were half a million such clocks which quickly became popular and prestigious gifts for the important heads of states during their visits to Switzerland.

All lots are sold "as is" according to their condition at the moment of the fall of the Auctioneer's hammer. Buyer acknowledges that it is the responsibility of buyer to fully inspect each lot before bidding and hereby represents that the amounts bid for any lot are based solely on buyer's own independent inspection and evaluation of that lot.
Antiquorum has included in the catalogue estimates of the value of the lots to be sold. Such estimates have been developed using such experts, tests and other methods as Antiquorum has deemed in its sole discretion to be appropriate under the circumstances. Antiquorum shall have no liability whatsoever relating to estimates of value attributed to the lots and all participants in the auction shall be responsible for reaching their own conclusions as to the value of the lots. Neither Antiquorum nor the consignor is responsible for any errors and omissions in the catalogue or any advertisements or other written material, it being understood that any description or statement therein does not constitute a warranty or representation and is provided for identification purposes only.
Unless specified in the catalogue, lots are subject to reserve price which is a confidential minimum amount the consignor is willing to accept. If the reserve price is not reached, the Auctioneer may withdraw the lot from the sale. The Auctioneer may open bidding on any lot below the reserve by placing a bid on behalf of the consignor. The Auctioneer may continue to bid on behalf of the consignor up to the amount of the reserve, either by placing successive or consecutive bids for a lot, or by placing bids in response to other bidders.
Except for the limited warranty, contained in section 2 below, all lots are sold without any representations or warranties by Antiquorum or the consignor as to merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, rarity, importance, the correctness of the catalogue or other description concerning the author, maker, origin, period, age, attribution, authenticity, provenance, weight or condition of any object.

3.THE AUCTION
The auction will be conducted in French but the bidding may be translated also into English.
The purchase price payable by a buyer will be the sum of the final bid price plus the buyer's premium, together with any applicable sales or compensating use tax. In addition to the hammer price, the buyer's premium is payable as follows: 25% of the hammer price on each lot up to and including CHF 100,000, 20% from CHF 100,001 to CHF 1,500,000 and 12% from CHF 1,500,001.

His/her decision is recorded in the sale report which is conclusive.
Bidding shall generally be increased in increments of 10%, however, the Auctioneer may modify bidding increments from time to time at his/her absolute discretion. The minimum bid is communicated during the auction. Any person bidding for the account of a third party is fully liable for any obligation assumed by such person relating to the sale. This liability includes, without limitation, the verification of the condition and valuation of lots and the payment for lots purchased. Although Antiquorum, in its sole discretion, may execute absentee bids (written bids left with Antiquorum prior to sale) or accept telephone and internet bids as a convenience to clients who are not present at auction, Antiquorum is not responsible for failing to execute such bids or for any errors or omissions in connection therewith.
High value lots (identified by Antiquorum in its entire discretion) may, unless otherwise agreed, be bid for only by prospective Buyers who have completed pre-bidding registration for the high value lot category.

4.PAYMENT
Title to the offered lot passes to the buyer upon the fall of the Auctioneer's hammer and the announcement by the Auctioneer that the lot has been sold, subject to compliance by the buyer with all other conditions of sale, including full payment as required hereunder. Buyer shall have no right to revoke acceptance of any lot after the fall of the hammer.
The buyer thereupon assumes full risk and responsibility for the lot. The buyer shall immediately pay the full purchase price, buyer's commission and all applicable sales and other taxes in Swiss francs using a method of payment acceptable to auctioneer (including Swiss currency, bank wire). Payment in foreign currencies is accepted at the rates of exchange of the day of sale as determined by Antiquorum. Lots are delivered to the buyer only upon the full payment of all such amounts. Shipping and packing arrangements and charges are the sole responsibility of the buyer. After payment has been made in full, Antiquorum may, as a service to the buyer, arrange to have the purchased lots packed, insured and shipped at the buyer's request and expense. In this event, the buyer agrees that all said packaging, handling and shipping is at the sole risk of the buyer and that Antiquorum shall have no liability for any loss or damage to the purchased lots. Antiquorum may move the property to an off-site storage at the risk of the buyer. Buyer will be required to pay all applicable taxes, or fees levied by any authority (unless Antiquorum receives satisfactory proof of exemption, to be determined in Antiquorum's sole discretion).
A 7,7% VAT is applicable to each sale. VAT will be entirely refunded upon receipt of an export declaration validated by the Swiss Federal Customs Administration.
It is expressly agreed that consignor shall only receive payment for a lot provided Antiquorum has received full payment from buyer, including such lost commissions and administrative and handling charges.

5.REMEDIES, APPLICABLE LAWS AND JURISDICTION
To the extent that any other information or provision set forth in this catalogue is inconsistent with the Conditions of Sale, the Conditions of Sale shall be controlling.
If the buyer fails to comply with any of these Conditions of Sale, Antiquorum may (in addition to asserting all remedies available by law), (i) hold such defaulting buyer liable for the purchase price; (ii) cancel the sale; (iii) resell the property without reserve at public auction or privately on seven days' notice to the buyer; (iv) pay the consignor an amount equal to the net proceeds payable in respect of the amount bid by the defaulting buyer and then resell the property to a third party without reserve at public auction or privately on fifteen (15) days written notice to such buyer; or (v) return the lot to the consignor, provided forty-five (45) days have elapsed and no payment has been received from buyer; or (vi) take such other action as Antiquorum deems necessary or appropriate. If Antiquorum resells the property pursuant to clause (iii) or (iv) above, the defaulting buyer shall be liable for the payment of any deficiency between the purchase price and the price obtained upon resale and all costs and expenses, including administration, handling, insurance, warehousing, the expenses of both sales, reasonable attorneys' fees, commissions, incidental damages and all other charges due hereunder. In the event that such buyer pays a portion of the purchase price for any or all lots purchased, Antiquorum shall apply the payment received to such lot or lots as Antiquorum, in its sole discretion, deems appropriate.
Any buyer who fails to comply with these Conditions of Sale will be deemed to have granted Antiquorum a security interest in, and Antiquorum may retain as collateral security for such buyer's obligation to it, any property in Antiquorum's possession owned by such buyer. This security interest secures the principal amount of any such claim and also any outstanding or accruing interest, commissions, costs and all other fees as well as any and all damages suffered by Antiquorum. Antiquorum is entitled, but not obliged, to realize freely the security interests without further formalities and without previous notice to the buyer who is in default of payment on his debt or in the fulfilment of any other obligation hereunder. In any event, Antiquorum will be entitled to realise its security on a private treaty basis. For this purpose, Antiquorum is not bound to comply with the the formalities of the Federal Law dealing with actions for debt and bankruptcy proceedings ; in addition, Antiquorum may choose to institute or proceed with the usual proceedings witjout having beforehand sold the secured goods and without having moreover given up its rights to them.
Payment will not be deemed to have been made in full until Antiquorum has collected sufficient funds. In the event the buyer fails to pay any or all of the total purchase price for any lot and Antiquorum nonetheless elects to pay the consignor any portion of the sale proceeds, the buyer acknowledges that Antiquorum shall have all of the rights of the consignor to pursue the buyer for any amounts paid to the consignor, whether at law, in equity, or under these Conditions of Sale.
The buyer's sole and exclusive remedy against Antiquorum and the consignor shall be the rescission of the sale and the refund of the original purchase price paid for the lot. This remedy shall be in lieu of any other remedy which might otherwise be available as a matter of law, and neither Antiquorum nor the consignor shall be liable, in whole or in part, for any special, incidental or consequential damages, including, without limitation, loss of profits.
By bidding at the auction, whether present in person or by agent, by absentee bid, telephone, internet, or other means, the buyer shall be deemed to have consented to the following: this agreement shall be interpreted and enforced according to Swiss law by the Courts of the Canton of Geneva and the buyer hereby irrevocably and unconditionally submits to the exclusive jurisdictions of the Courts of Geneva, subject to appeal to the Swiss Federal Court, over any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this agreement. The buyer hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waives any objection to the laying of venue of any such suit, action or proceeding brought in any such court and any claim that any such suit, action or proceeding brought in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum. The buyer agrees that a final judgment in any such suit, action or proceeding brought in any such court shall be conclusive and binding upon the buyer and may be enforced in any other courts to whose jurisdiction the buyer is or may be subject, by suit upon such judgment;
• No waiver, delay, modification or breach of any provision of this agreement by Antiquorum shall constitute a waiver of any preceding or succeeding breach of the same or any other provision hereof.
• If any part or provision of this agreement is, for any reason, adjudged unenforceable, such adjudication shall in no way affect any other part or provision of this agreement or the validity or enforcement of the remainder of this agreement, and the part or provision affected shall be curtailed or altered only to the minimum extent necessary to make it conform to the applicable law.
