An extremely rare watch auction featuring sought after Rolex watches have already skyrocketed in price due to rarity with only 24hrs to go.

“This auction really provides the opportunity for people to buy and own a watch they have dreamed of now and not have to wait several years on a waitlist,” said Mr. Lee Hames Chief Operations Officer for Lloyds Auctions.

“We are an independent auctioneer and have no affiliation with Rolex, Audemars Piguet or any other prestige watch brands which allows us to offer a completely independent auction that is not subject to wait lists or predetermined criteria,” Mr. Hames continued.

“One example of this from our auction is the Rolex Submariner Date LV model also known as the ‘Hulk’ which some customers suggesting is over 5 years,” Mr. Hames continued.

“The current bid of this watch is sitting at $20,000 which shows that people are willing to invest in these rare, luxury watches to own them now rather than risking what they would have to pay in 5 years’ time,” Mr. Hames said.

“Another extremely rare watch we are offering is 1 of only 250 in the world an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watch, and as with all of our watches the bidding started at $1 and we expect this watch to fetch a 6-figure price tag,” he continued.

“The amount of enquiries we have had pouring in not only Nationwide but Internationally has been incredible since we published the auction online a few weeks ago,” continued Mr. Hames.

Whether people are buying one of these watches celebrating a very special milestone, a memory or purchasing a gift, the classic design and versatile watches in this auction justifies and certainly explains the current prices being achieved at this auction.

Other series of watches on offer include Rolex Submariner Date, Yatch-Master II, GMT-Master II, Cosmograph Daytona, Sky-Dweller & Day-Date 40.

Rare and collectable Whiskeys are also part of this auction including single and blended malt varieties aged from 12 to 18 years distilled from all across the globe featuring brands such as Hibiki, Yamakazi, Macallan, Bowmore and more.

The Watches and Whiskey will go under the hammer this Wednesday the 13th of November at 7pm (QLD Time) as part of the ‘Rare Watches & Whiskey Auction’. Bidding is available now online at
