Those lucky enough to attend The Watches Auction on 26 February witnessed McTear’s once again making auction history
Lot 754, a very rare Tudor Monte Carlo homeplate wrist watch, sold for £20,000 including fees. It went to a telephone bidder based in the south of England after strong competition from a Hong Kong-based internet bidder. This is the highest price achieved at auction for this particular model, beating the previous hammer price record by £1500. Tudor are a sub brand of Rolex but many of their now rarer vintage sports watches regularly surpass the prices achieved by comparable Rolex examples. This example came with a rich history of use, from diving to car racing, a history that only added further to its desirability. This important auction also featured one of the coveted early Speedmaster watches by Omega.
