Rolex and Patek top the lots at tomorrow’s Fortuna Auction


Timepieces from Rolex and Patek Philippe are set to top the lots at Fortuna Auction in New York tomorrow.

The top piece, a Rolex ‘Paul Newman’ Daytona, is expected to fetch up to $250,000.

With starting bids of $110,000, the Daytona features a 36mm diameter and a manual wind movement and was made in c.1967.


As usual, there is a lot of excitement around the Daytona watch after a similar ‘Paul Newman’ piece went for over $17.7m in October last year.

Also on the list tomorrow is a Patek Philippe Nautilus in steel, set to go for around $50,000.

It has a starting bid of $25,000, features a 42mm wide dark blue dial and has an automatic movement.

Completing the top three is another Patek piece, with this one being in 18k carat yellow gold.

The watch is set to go for between $35,000-$50,000 and comes with a five-row brick link bracelet with fold-over clasp.

With a number of other brands featuring at the sale, including Vacheron Constantin, Breguet and Audemars Piguet, it could be an expensive day at Fortuna, with the top three pieces set to go for $350,000 alone.
