It’s time to get your hands on some rare and classic Rolexes during Christie’s’ Important Watches sale in New York on Dec. 14, where 77 different models will be crossing the block. Topping the charts are a rare and extremely fine large stainless steel automatic triple calendar wristwatch with moon phases circa 1950; and this rare stainless steel automatic center anti-magnetic Milgauss wristwatch with center seconds, honeycomb dial, and transitional case, circa 1958, both estimated at $60,000 – $80,000. The Milgauss models were designed for use in areas of high electro-magnetic fields, including laboratories and power stations, and this model is one of the rarest examples ever produced.
For sheer beauty our money is on one of the most exquisite “Paul Newman” Cosmograph Daytona models we’ve come across (pictured), dating from 1969 with just the right patina of wear as if it’s seen some real racing action, estimated at $50,000 – $70,000. Also on offer is a fine stainless steel chronograph from 1966 with silvered matte dial and subdials, estimated at $15,000 – $20,000; and a rare and early stainless steel automatic dual time GMT –Master with date, center seconds and bakelite bezel from 1958, estimated at $15,000 – $20,000
