The pre-auction estimate in USD $93,000 – $155,000 (£60,000 – £100,000) was blown out of the water just a couple days ago at Sotheby’s when this watch sold for a whopping $751,556 (£485,000)!* That’s a lotta dough, but hey, it is an amazing piece of history for more reasons than one (i.e. Winston Churchill & Louis Cottier world timer).
Expect for the bidding action to be hot on this piece — I fully expect it to surpass the £60,000 – £100,000 pre-auction estimate.
