Rolex achieves impressive hammer price at McTear's For the second month in a row, women's watches were the best-selling lots in The Watches Auction. The usual pattern is for men’s watches to sell better than women's, so it is encouraging to see that the market is broadening in this respect.

Lots 885 (a lady’s bi-colour Rolex Oyster Perpetual) was this month’s best seller, reaching the impressive hammer price of £2000. There was excellent bidding in the room and on the telephone with a busy week of viewing translating into bids.

Catching the eye during the view, lot 850 (a lady’s eighteen carat gold and diamond set cocktail watch from Piaget) reached a very respectable hammer price of £1200.

The surprise hit of the sale was lot 887 (a gentleman’s rolled gold Art Deco watch from Rolex) which soared way above its estimate of £200-£300 to sell at £650. It seems that the top names, with their history of excellence, continue to attract the bids.

The watch sale goes from strength to strength so McTear's  hope to see you at The Watches Auction on January 12th. To consign to this, or any of our future watch auctions, please contact auction@mctears.co.uk or telephone 0141 810 2880.
