Natasha Davis, Watch Specialist at Fellows Auctioneers, has picked out some highlight timepieces for ladies, ahead of the– taking place on Monday 19th April.
I really adore this lady’s Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso watch. Not much has changed since its original 1930’s design, from the reversible face to the art deco style geometric and uncluttered dial. It’s incredibly stylish, especially with the yellow gold banding through the steel bracelet. It would make a great addition to anyone’s collection.
It’s always exciting to get a Limited Edition watch designed for ladies in our auctions, especially when there were only 180 pieces produced. This Hublot Big Bang ‘Crown of Light’ watch is rather special because of the unique cut of diamonds set in the bezel. Instead of the usual 58 facets, there are 90 facets, thus allowing a greater amount of light to enter the stone creating an incredible brilliance. It’s certainly an eye-catching piece, and something with a little more sparkle than the traditional diamond set Big Bang.
This is a classic Rolex Lady-Datejust in 18ct gold from the early 1970’s. The vintage gold has a beautiful depth to it and works so well with the warm grey tones in the dial. The President bracelet is incredibly smart and just looks so elegant on the wrist. The condition is great considering the watch is around 40 years of age too.
With an unusual Ferrite stone dial, this Rolex 36mm Datejust really stood out to me. The combination of the detailing on the stone dial with the gold Roman numerals is striking, and works so well. The watch dates to the 1980’s and is in really beautiful condition. It’s not a style that we see every day, and is certainly more of a statement piece.
I was initially drawn to the size of this Tag Heuer Lady’s Formula 1 watch. With a case diameter of 41mm it is certainly on the larger size for a classic lady’s watch but it looks smashing on the wrist and wears so well. The black ceramic combined with the subtly set diamonds to the dial and bezel add an elegance to the watch, and the added chronograph function provides a sportier and more traditional touch.
