Our love for rare and beautiful objects isn't limited to those of the horological variety! In addition to our perpetual treasure hunt for great watches, we cast a wider net into the world of vintage objects, a practice that, since our founding, has yielded a trove of finds we happily share during the holiday season each year.
From vintage clocks to pocket knives, lighters to diving instrumentation, old-world ashtrays to desk sculptures — these are the types of mementos that heavily tug on our nostalgic heart strings and further sate our impulse for preservation and storytelling.
Unfortunately we can't keep them all...
Referred to as the “Globe Model”, these F-86 Sabre desk models were gifted to employees who worked for North American Aviation and contributed to the Sabre Jet project. Crafted in the likeness of the F-86 fighter jet, the first swept-wing American jet fighters made, the Sabre was a fast flying terror in the skies, and saw early combat against the Soviet MiGs of the era. This model is produced in a plastic resin and comes affixed to a sculpted “globe” base and measures approximately 8 1/2” x 5"x 6". This model was produced by Topping Models of Akron, Ohio, one of the most notable model aircraft companies in the industry.
