    Alain Silberstein, the French watchmaker, is best known for his funky, eye-catching and unusual designs. This group lot of 14 watches was made to commemorate the French revolution, as the case back is engraved "Bicentenaire de la Revolution Francaise 1789 1989". These watches were created to celebrate the 200th year of the French Revolution in 1789. Each watch has a different 'theme', from 'Musica Rock' to 'Amore', all the way to 'Liberte', a concept which the French Revolution was based on. All of the watches are inscribed 'Fabriquée en France', which is a hallmark of Alain Silberstein's, and something the watchmaker is incredibly proud of.
