Cherry picked by vintage Rolex watch collectors Daniel Bourn and Eric Ku, over 30 pieces of vintage Rolexes and Patek Philippe watches circa 1930 to 1990, have now been brought to Lane Crawford IFC and are, for the first time, available for sale. All watches are selected from Bourn and Ku’s personal collections, and are approved by watch companies Vintage-DB and 10pastTEN for their pristine and exceptional conditions. While the whole collection includes more than 50 watches, only 30 pieces are now on display in the women's shoes and accessories department.
Some of the highlighted pieces in the collection are the 1980 Rolex Men’s Big Red, the 1936 Rolex Men’s Chronograph and the 1982 Rolex Ladies’ Datejust Malachite Dial, each boasting a high collectible value. As all of the watches are one of a kind, each purchase, we’d imagine, means there’s one less rare gem in the market.
