In what the Birmingham-based auction house describes as one of the most elegant Rolex watches Fellows has had go under the hammer, an 18ct Everose gold Oyster Perpetual Day-Date is expected to be the top lot at The Luxury Watch Sale this month.
It features as Lot 134A in the auction which takes place in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter on Monday, May 16th.
Garnering an estimate of £55,000 – £65,000, the watch which is in good general condition with its movement functioning, sports an Olive-green dial with a reference number of 228235 and comes with box and papers.
