Sotheby’s has another prestige watch sale happening this week. Here are some highlights;
The Royal Oak Quantieme Perpetuel (header images) combines an iconic sports watch design with the most classic horological complication: the perpetual calendar.
The collection first launched in 1983 as the Reference 5554. The model was originally dressed in a 39 mm case and has since seen over 90 variations in style and size. Today’s rendition is upgraded with a large 41 mm case, new extra-thin in-house movement, and a multi-dimensional ‘Grande Tapisserie’ dial.
Rolex Daytonas Aplenty
This silver dial Daytona (pictured) has a cal. 727 mechanical movement, stainless steel Rolex Oyster bracelet with folding clasp and a 37 mm diameter case. Estimate is about $65,000 on that one. In fact there are several nice Daytonas, all on sale scheduled for the 4th September. Plus the usual Submariners, GMTs etc.
We also got envious over a Patek Philipe Calatrava with white dial and white gold case from 1966. Got some wear, but a classic watch that will probably only rise in value.
The auction is online and bidding closes on 4th September 2020 – you can bid now.
