Fellows Vintage & Modern Wrist Watches auction on Monday 17th October was always going to be an exciting sale with such a strong selection of rare lots from military classics to modern masterpieces.
One auction highlight that certainly didn’t disappoint was a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner wrist watch that fetched a show stopping £26,000 and was bought by a gentleman in the saleroom.
The interest in the Rolex timepieces didn’t end there. The highly anticipated 1960’s Cosmograph Daytona, described as ‘the vintage sports watch to own’, was sold under the hammer for a fantastic £11,000.
Other auction highlights included an 18k gold Patek Philippe wrist watch, which was estimated £3,000 - £4,000 and reached a staggering £6,900 from keen bidders determined to take home the exquisite timepiece. Those who were looking to secure a rare purchase were also on tenterhooks, as a very special Omega Railmaster was auctioned. So called for Omega’s association with railway specialists, it is one of the rarer watches in the Omega collection and reached an eventual hammer price of £1,300.
