Vintage & Modern Wrist Watches
One of the star lots in our Vintage & Modern Wrist Watch auction is the highly desirable Patek Philippe Nautilus Chronograph 5980/1. the original Nautilus was conceived back in 1976 by the legendary watch designer Gerald Genta, who died earlier this year. Collectors of vintage Rolex will be spoilt for choice as we have a wide range of models including a Rolex Prince, Submariner, Turn-O-Graph, and an early chronograph. Continuing the timing theme, is a rare 1940s Breitling split-seconds chronograph offered for auction. Following his tragic demise in 2009, we are honoured to offer for sale items from the estate of Carl spencer; the world reknowned deep-wreck diver and explorer. these include his Rolex Sea-Dweller and two limited edition Doxas alongside items associated with the Titanic, the Carpathia and world water-speed record holder Donald Campbell's Bluebird.
