General Information: Manhattan is a combination
piece containing a clock, a relief car, and the Manhattan Skyline,
all combined together in one unique design. This piece actually
came in 3 versions, depending on the color of the clock's faceplate.
This piece is generally considered an integral part of any Daum
Automobile collection that includes the relief cars. This is a very
striking piece that is generally a favorite of anyone who has it.
The Daum car is smaller than other relief cars. See pic below. I
am currently lucky enough to have 2 Manhattan pieces, one with a
gold clock and one with a silver clock. The piece with the silver
clock is an "EA" piece that
was signed by Xavier Froissart, and is
serial number 2 EA. See pics of original box below and included
clock warranty booklet. Also note that the clock is removable and
see pic below with clock missing.
I have now verified the actual edition size of the Manhattan, with
some help from people in high places! A total of 209 Manhattans
were actually produced and sold by Daum, making this piece in the
same rarity level as the convertibles.
