Jewellery and Watches Valuation Day

Duke’s Auctioneers annual Taste of Luxury auction of 10th December will feature jewellery, watches, and designer accessories.  What a sale it will be – and all just in time for some seasonal shopping on the run up to Christmas. 

At Duke’s last Taste of Luxury auction in December 2019, a Rolex GMT Master 2 Oyster perpetual date 18 carat gold gentleman’s bracelet watch with automatic movement lead the pack, selling for £22,500 (including buyer’s premium).   The GMT series was designed with world travelers in mind as a navigation device displaying two time zones, making it especially collectable.

 

A further strong price was realised for a rare Omega Speed Master gentleman’s chronograph stainless steel bracelet watch, selling for £8750 (including buyer’s premium).  This lot was accompanied by original case, invoice and registration card – always popular with Omega watch collectors.

A 19th Century coral Etruscan style Parure, comprising a necklace, bracelet, brooch and earings, was a highlight of the Jewellery section, it sold beyond estimate for £15,625 (including buyer’s premium).  The attractive form of graduating coral scarab beetles, suspended from a single flower head attached to a rope effect yellow metal necklace caught the eye of a number of passionate bidders.
