WATCHES

Ever since we began our Fine Sale auctions in Suffolk, some of our most remarkable results have been for vintage watches; particularly Rolex and Omega classic and rare models. 

 

Some of our most notable results have included:

  • a Rolex Explorer belonging to the Sir Edmund Hillary Expedition 

  • GMT Master "Pepsi" Rolexes

  • Omega Speedmaster "space watches"

  • In October 2017, we set a new British auction record for a Rolex Submariner, achieving a £230,000 hammer, this was originally purchased c.1965 with an unusual black and orange dial.
