Rare James Bond model Rolex up for auction at Antiquorum

07-Dec-2008 • Collecting

At Antiquorum's important watch sale in NYC on Dec. 10 and 11 there are the usual passel of megabucks Patek Philippes, but we're focusing here on some of the rare Rolexes which have been much discussed lately and which represent an undeniably solid investment in this uncertain economy - reports Luxist.

The top-priced Rolex in the sale is a Comex Sea Dweller that was formerly the property of Theo Mavrostomos, the world's deepest dive record holder, estimated at $75,000 - $95,000. From a purely aesthetic point of view we're very fond of the rare pre-Daytona black dial chronograph (right) made in the 1960's, est. $60,000 - $80,000.

Also among the rare Rolex offerings: A 1956 "James Bond" model Submariner, est. $70,000 - $90,000; a 1972 British Royal Navy military issue Submariner, est. $70,000 - $120,000; and a 1973 "Paul Newman" Cosmograph Daytona, est. $60,000 - $90,000. See the gallery for pix.
