Marie Antoinette’s Watch: Adultery, Larceny & Perpetual Motion

Watch Time

On August 16, 2006, Zion Yakubov, a small-time antiquities dealer in Tel Aviv, met with a lawyer representing an anonymous American client who needed some old watches authenticated.  The lawyer handed Yakubov some poorly packed boxes containing 40 old watches, among which a stunned Yakubov found the most famous watch ever made: Abraham-Louis Breguet’s 160, which had been stolen and missing for the last 23 years.
