Watch genius Severin Wunderman indeed lived life king size. After all he is the man who built the Gucci watch brand. His eight-bedroom townhouse in the Chelsea part of London grabbed headlines last year. And haven’t we heard so much about his Corum and other interesting images that he possessed. Come September 30, and his collection of furniture, paintings and several obejects from his house will go on sale at Bonhams London.
All this is being done for a good cause as the proceeds will be directed to the Severin Wunderman Family Foundation that supports research on incurable diseases.
Wunderman had a very fine taste in life. He would collect a range of things from walking canes to images of Napoleon to even skulls. As a matter of fact, one of the rooms in his townhouse is actually referred to as the Napoleon room. Interested buyers will also let you take a peek at all the stuffs in Wunderman’s drawing room. We have taken a likin to the Charles X style walnut and parcel gilt day bed that is supported by swans. The estimated price is between €810 and 1,200.
