Five of our Best Vintage Watches

Amongst our wide range of exceptional timepieces, we have managed to select five of our best vintage watches. High quality investment pieces; only the very best for all of our clientele.

Rolling in Rolex

This extremely rare set of Rolex timepieces date back to 1979; both watches A and B have an original matte black ‘’COMEX’’ Pisani dial with original hands and the date at 3 0' clock. This stunning pair come with a stainless steel bi-directional rotating bezel with a black bezel insert, a brushed stainless steel oyster bracelet with an oysterlock deployant clasp and plastic glass. They are the only automatic movement watches in our top 5!

These rare timepieces are both in immaculate condition and have consecutive serial numbers; which is incredibly hard to come by; they are both provided in a Rolex presentation pouch. Also accompanying this set is a letter of authenticity from Mr H Hudson himself; the now retired general manager of Rolex UK. Dated May 2008, the letter confirms that both watches were first issued to the Comex Organisation in September 1981; such a letter is rare with regards to authenticity. Also, no other 1665 Sea-Dweller Comex watches are believed to be in existence with consecutive serial numbers, so it would most definitely make an absolute once in a lifetime addition to any watch collection.

Jubilant Jaeger LeCoultre

Ladies, adorn yourself with this gorgeous Jaeger LeCoultre & Bvlgari 18k white gold rare vintage Tubogas wristwatch, which consists of a silver dial with applied index batons, a polished 18k white gold snake bracelet and plastic glass.

This 1960’s timepiece is in exceptional condition and one of our best vintage watches for ladies. Our certificate of authenticity and 12-month warranty are provided, dressed in a presentation box for maximum care.

And it was all yellow…

Yellow gold has a feel of classic elegance and sophistication to it. This luxurious Cartier 18k yellow gold diamond set timepiece is a particularly rare ladies’ wristwatch; with a cream dial, index batons, an 18k yellow gold foxtail bracelet and box clasp; a timepiece that is still in incredible condition considering it dates back to the 1930’s.

Designed with blued steel hands, a gold hinge case set with 22 round brilliant diamonds and mineral glass, this stunning vintage timepiece comes with a Cartier box, our certificate of authenticity and 12-month warranty.


Phenomenal Patek Philippe

Gents can pull off yellow gold just as well as the ladies! This is a beautiful example of a vintage Calatrava gent’s wristwatch with exquisite rare flame lugs; it's a true statement piece. The silver dial with applied 18k yellow gold hour markers, Arabic number 12 and small seconds at 6 0’clock; is set into a beautiful 18k yellow gold case with a gold fixed polished bezel, an original black leather strap with a gold plated pin buckle and plastic glass.

Again, it's another one of our best vintage watches in great condition. A presentation box is supplied, along with an Extract from Archives- confirming its original date of sale as March 1953.

Roses are gold; Diamonds are bold

Rose gold is back, bold and beautiful. This particular watch, from one of our favourite brands Vacheron & Constantin, has been created in 18k rose gold with a rare hour glass case, a silver dial with applied index batons, small seconds at 6 0’clock, an 18k rose gold fixed polished bezel and an unusual plastic faceted glass. A brilliant design in excellent condition, this purchase comes complete with a Vacheron & Constantin Box and Papers dated November 1958.

All of our vintage watches promise to look amazing. Our best vintage watches are rare designs that are a must buy for any watch collector, or perfect if you just want to own a statement timepiece.
