A unique collection of more than 30 erotic watches and system objects are among the timepieces Antiquorum offered on March 27 here as part of its “Important Modern and Vintage Timepieces” auction.  The highlight of this collection was a repeating musical watch with four actions and a concealed erotic automaton. Dubbed “Musique d’Amour” and made in 1810, the watch is believed to be the work of Genevan watchmaker Henry Capt, and which was expected to fetch around $90,000.

A Google search of images under the keywords “erotic watches” turned up 4,500,000 images.   So I guess, given this large number of images, erotic watches are very popular and here to stay.    And probably good investments.
