Auction highlights

Patek Philippe Nautilus Ref. 3700/11

Original owner Patek Philippe Nautilus Ref. 3700/11 – complete with original cork box and certificate, one of the most sought after vintage pieces. Rare to find in this original unpolished condition.

Estimate £70,000 to £90,000.

IWC Mark 11

Very rare IWC Mark 11 “White 12” – the IWC Mark 11 is known for being one of the best quality british military watches ever issued.

Delivered in batches between 1948 and 1952, this is from the first batch that featured a slightly different dial to the other batches and has a 12 as an Arabic numeral instead of the luminous triangle. The type of nuisance that collectors go crazy for.

Estimate £10,000 to £14,000.

Rolex Sea-Dweller

With the recent launch of Rolex’s new titanium Sea-Dweller, this example we have in auction is one of the very first Sea-Dwellers commercially in 1971.

This is not only very rare featuring the thin case and mk2 dial but also in collectors condition in terms of originality.

Estimate £22,000 to £28,000.

Tudor Ranger

This very rare Tudor Ranger is the exact specification and reference 7995/0 that inspired the recent new model Ranger M79950-001. Excellent original condition should attract a lot of interest.

Estimate £4,000 to £6,000.

Rolex and Cartier broach

Co-signed watches are a big thing in watch collecting these days, what two names could be bigger than both Rolex and Cartier coming together to create this stunning broach watch. Circa 1970s and extremely rare.

Estimate £5,000 to £7,000.

IWC Portugeuese

This IWC Portugeuese is arguably IWC’s most successful model over the past decade. This example will attract the attention of watch collectors and film fans as it is one of 50 piece limited edition made to celebrate the film Miami Vice, most of which wear most likely given to actors and film crew with the remainder sold to IWC’s top clients in the US.

Estimate £10,000 to £14,000.
