Birmingham auctioneers Fellows has sold a limited edition 18ct rose gold ‘Rum’ watch for £16,588.
Made by Speake-Marin, the watch was one of two ‘Rum’ watches sold at Fellows’ 30 October Watch Sale, the other being a titanium version for £14,674.
This meant that, combined, the ‘Rum’ watches sold for a total of £31,262.
The watches contained 1780 Harewood Rum on the 11 hour mark, which was certified as the world’s oldest by the Guinness Book of Record.
Michael Jagiela, watch specialist at Fellows, said: “We are thrilled to have sold two of these fascinating watches this year. Speake-Marin create the most amazing watches and it is no surprise that there was a lot of interest in them both. The fact there were only 59 ever made and we have sold two of them is a privilege. They both sold for way above their estimates and the buyers of these watches have got themselves a stunning timepiece.”
