Sale Preview: September 23rd
Michael Bowman’s 2pm auction at Chudleigh Town Hall next Saturday 23rd September will feature a collection of modern Rolex watches including examples of an Explorer II and a Yachtmaster. Prize of the day, however, is likely to be the stainless steel & gold Daytona Cosmograph, which comes with its original guarantee card from when purchased new in Plymouth in 2017 and hopes of £12,000-15,000.
An expansive selection of jewellery is led by an exquisite art deco emerald & diamond platinum bracelet which looks for bids in the region of £12,000-18,000. A 2.6 carat Burmese sapphire & diamond ring, might appeal to those with a more modest budget. Burmese sapphires often exhibit a rich, vibrant blue and are more highly prized than stones from Ceylon. A London Lab Report confirms the natural origins of the sapphire, which shows no evidence of heat treatment. Bids of £1,500-2,000 are invited.
The sale is on view at Chudleigh on Friday evening 22nd February 4pm-7:30pm and from 10:30am on sale day. For catalogues & enquiries contact Michael Bowman on 01626 324071 www.michaeljbowman.co.uk
