Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, Day-Date Moon Phase, in Stainless Steel Ref. 25594s, circa 1990, self winding wristwatch.
Blancpain Fifty Fathoms, rare reference 3234, in Stainless Steel from 1960. Over the past decades, the Fifty Fathoms has grown into a highly-sought after and collectible mid-20th century watch. Extremely robust and reliable, it was truly designed by military professionals and was quickly selected by other armies around the world for their diving units, including the US Navy. The watch combined cutting-edge features such as an anti-magnetic and water-resistant case, screw-down caseback, ‘double O-ring crown system’, automatic movement and rotating bezel.
Cartier, a very rare Day-Date in Gold from 50’s. This magnificent and unusual Cartier watch was ordered for the Cartier Paris boutique in 1950, and as history recalls, the Jaeger LeCoultre caliber and the European Watch & Clock Co. back cover the beauty of the watch and its magnificent dial.
Rolex Daytona, Ref. 6241 with “Paul Newman” Dial and Steel bracelet the same owner from more than 2o years. This model features a very bright ‘Panda’ dial, correct for the pump pusher references. Extremely attractive, the dial has been preserved in very good general condition by its last owner for over 20 years.
Rolex Daytona Ref. 6241 with “Paul Newman” John Player special Dial, in 14K Yellow Gold and bracelet from the first owner. The reference 6241 was produced approximately between 1966 and 1969, it seems that less than 300 examples were set in 18 carat yellow gold, and even less in a 14 carat variant as in this model presented. Since the 1970s, always jealously kept by the same owner, they have made this watch a very rare piece of great interest to connoisseurs.
