Leslie Hindman Auctioneers to sell Andy Warhol's Cartier wristwatch
Mr. Stickelber acquired the timepiece at the 1988 Sotheby’s auction of The Andy Warhol Collection.
CHICAGO, IL.- On November 8, 2012, Leslie Hindman Auctioneers will sell Andy Warhol’s personal timepiece, an 18 karat yellow gold Cartier Tank Solo with a black crocodile strap. The watch, estimated at $1,500/2,500, is part of the house’s auction of Property from the Estate of David Stickelber of Kansas City, Missouri.

Mr. Stickelber acquired the timepiece at the 1988 Sotheby’s auction of The Andy Warhol Collection. Warhol’s six-story Manhattan townhouse confirmed what many of his close friends already knew: he was a legendary hoarder. The ten-day auction of the contents of the home included everything from Jean Emile Puiforcat silver and Pierre Legrain console tables to bags of costume jewelry and cookie jars, many of which had never been unpacked after Warhol’s move to the house in 1974.

Mr. Stickelber displayed the watch in an illuminated shadow box frame with a copy of the catalogue for the Jewelry and Watches auction of The Andy Warhol Collection. The frame also includes its original lot sticker and tag from the auction preview. Preview exhibition of property from the Estate of David Stickelber will be held November 3 through November 7 at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, 1338 West Lake Street, Chicago, Illinois.

“I don’t wear a Tank watch to tell the time. In fact, I never wind it. I wear a Tank watch because it’s the watch to wear.” -Andy Warhol, 1973.
