Whatever you’re doing on the 19th of October, cancel it. Why, I hear you ask? Because our friends over at Fellows & Sons are presenting a Wrist & Pocket watch auction that is not to be missed. This esteemed auction house has already proved that they are capable of delivering some truly stunning pieces, if you don’t remember you can read about September’s auction here.
Once again the highlight of this auction for me is a Rolex Cosmograph (pictured above) , however, this one is not diamond encrusted. A stainless steel manual wind chronograph, the manufacture date of the watch is circa 1970 and the model number is 6265. The auction report provides some promising further details:
“Rolex watch, movement is currently functioning and appears to be in a generally good condition. There are a few scratches and nibbling to screw heads as a consequence of past servicing, scratched numbered to the inside case back indicate dates of previous services. Movement Calibre: 727 inside Case Back Numbered: 6262 Bracelet Numbered: 357 to initial link, 7835 19 to next link model Number: 6265 Serial Number: 3046553 Serial number dates the watch to circa 1970 however dial believed to date to the earlier 6240 model issued in the late 1960′s…”
The estimate is a very healthy £15,000 – £20,000, expect a lot of interest in this one.
Don’t worry if you are working with a slightly more limited budget, there are plenty of other fantastic watches on offer, including but not limited to:
- Jaeger-LeCoultre stainless steel automatic Master Grand Reveil grand complication watch with perpetual calendar and mechanical alarm circa 2000 (my second favorite!)
- Omega Speedmaster Broad Arrow
- Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore stainless steel gentleman’s automatic chronograph calendar
- Breitling stainless steel manual wind Cosmonaute Navitimer circa 1968
There really are too many fantastic watches to list so do yourself a favor and check out the full on-line catalogue.
