Rolex fans, here’s one tailor-made for you:
Bob’s Watches, the online retailer of pre-owned and vintage Rolex, is hosting its first-ever public online auction in collaboration with Eric Wind of Wind Vintage from September 5-12th, featuring “12 desirable Rolex sports watches in stainless steel cases.” What’s special here is that each of these watches features original box and papers (including a 6239 “Paul Newman” Daytona and new GMT Master ref 126710BLRO), and there are no buyer’s premiums at work. While there are certainly some heavy-hitters here, there are also some more commonly available models (think vintage Subs and Sea-Dwellers) whose starting bids aren’t in the 5- (or 6-) figures.
All watches featured in the auction are from original owners or the original owners’ families and come with a 1-year service guarantee and lifetime authenticity guarantee. Here are some highlights:
GMT Master II Ref. 126710BLRO by Rolex Starting Bid $5,000
Milgauss Ref. 1019 Mk. I by Rolex Starting Bid $17,000
Cosmograph Daytona Ref. 6239 by Rolex Starting Bid $175,000
