‘Fashions in watch collecting have changed over time – through the scholarly pursuit of pocket watches, the desire for vintage dress watches, and the craving for contemporary complications. We have now reached a point where the ‘tool’ watch is king. The other categories have their place and attract their aficionados, but the keen interest now is in non-precious metal watches with an air of adventure and excitement, whether as divers, flyers or racers. This neatly intersects with another genre of watch collecting: the military watch, which is able to deliver on that ‘tool’ watch aesthetic and stirring backstory, often at a very affordable price.’ – Adrian Hailwood, Senior Watch Specialist We have a fascinating group of military watches in our auction of Watches and Pens on 12 February. Pictured are lots 208, 209 & 213. View the collection via our website. #dreweatts #donningtonpriory #watches #militarywatches #watchauction #longines #longineswatch #jaegerlecoultre

Here we have an intriguing Rolex, Oyster Perpetual Bubble Back from 1945. Inscribed on the back is the name ‘J. R. Stoop’. With some research we discovered this to be ‘Dickie’ Stoop, a Flight Lieutenant in WWII. He was one of the first men to race at Goodwood, driving MG around the perimeter track while it was still RAF Westhampnett. Post-war Dickie Stoop became a test pilot but also followed his passion for motor racing, competing at Le Mans, the Mille Miglia, at Spa and at race tracks throughout the UK driving a Frazer Nash and later a Porsche.Watches and Luxury Accessories | On View from Sunday, 10am-2pm#dreweatts #donningtonpriory #watches #rolex #vintagerolex #oysterperpetual #watchauction

A highlight from our upcoming Watches and Luxury Accessories auction. Lot 195, stainless steel chronograph wristwatch is part of a private collection of vintage Heuer watches which will be on offer. The smart watch of its era, this model combines a slide-rule calculator with an automatic chronograph. The watch was marketed to engineers and scientists as clients who would most benefit from the timing / mathematics combination. An impressive piece at 45mm, the matte finish to the bezel makes it surprisingly subtle on the wrist. #dreweatts #donningtonpriory #watches #heuer #vintageheuer #auction #heuervintage #vintagewatch
