These rarely come on the open market these days and this is a fine example with the dial, case and movement all properly marked and is estimated at £6,000-8,000.” Commented the Charterhouse watch expert Matthew Whitney. “However, there are also other watches in the sale which are estimated from just a hundred pounds and below so there is something for anyone who has an interest in watches or is looking for a present to be treasured and enjoyed.”

The watches form only a small part of the Charterhouse August auction which has had to be spread over two days due to the volume of business. First up, on the morning session of day one on Thursday 14th August is a specialist sale of Beswick and Royal Doulton. This is then followed on the afternoon with their sale of wine, port and spirits. Then, on the second day, Friday 15th, is the sale of silver including an early 18th century York silver chalice £5,000-8,000, jewellery such as a large Victorian five stone diamond ring £5,000-7,000 and the selection of watches including Rolex Prince already mentioned, a US market Rolex GMT Master £3,000-4,000 and a ladies 18ct yellow gold Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust at £2,000-3,000.
