Introduced in the early sixties, Daytona watches were designed to assist with timekeeping for racing drivers. Furthermore, Daytona models have become some of the most sought-after in the world of horology.

Both watches at Fellows were in a great condition and they received multiple bidders both over the telephone and via internet bidding platforms.

The Auction

They sold in the Luxury Watch auction – our most prestigious, bi-monthly auction of watches. Brands such as Rolex, Omega and Tag Heuer featured heavily in the auction which attracted hundreds of bidders, registering to take part from around the globe.
