Sixth-generation family auction house Fellows will be holding its next watch sale tomorrow (November 29th) at its Birmingham saleroom. An expansive and varied range of timepieces is on offer, from a brace of Paul Newman Daytonas to a more modest Swarovski crystal-set TW Steel. Revolution went to see what’s on offer and found five lots to shout about:
Lot 20, Blancpain Fifty Fathoms.
While vintage Blancpain Fifty Fathoms are highly collectable in their own right, military issued examples are noticably more desirable. This example, issued to the Polish Navy, features a “no radiation” dial and a caseback engraving indicating its provenance as a military watch. Its estimate is £7,000-9,000.
