Fans of the Moonwatch will also be eager to bid on a 1969 Omega Speedmaster Professional Mark II (est £800-£1,200).

Also going under the hammer is a rare early 20th century Russian chronograph pocket watch by August Ericsson made for the Russian Imperial Navy with a Longines signed dial (estimate £400-600) and a 1970s Hamilton W10 (estimate £100-200).
