The latest in a long running series looking at vintage Speedmasters that are featured in a sale by Watches of Knightsbridge. Previous tomes here, here etc. Remember the buyers premium is 24% and if you choose to buy via The Saleroom, add another 6% for their fees. Generally, WoK have been pretty good at estimating their lots and they usually sell for at or higher than their low estimate. Their photography skills are still a bit meagre though, but they often have lots more photos they'll share if you ask. Full catalogue is on here and contains lots of other interesting watches (including a Gemini IV LE Speedmaster), but for now, we're looking only at vintage Speedmasters. Lot 140 - 105.003-65 Ed White - est £5,500-6,500 Hammer price £5500 (inc premium, £6820 - $8798 - €7979) Not a fine example by the look of it, though only photo so who knows what the case back/movement etc is like. Bezel is too far gone for my liking unless it's bargain basement territory (bearing in mind that low estimate would put it at the "Running" price point for a head-ony Ed White according to Speedmaster101). Hands are replaced and it looks like it wants servicing too. Lot 141 - 105.012-63 with Soleil Dial- est £20,000-30,000 Hammer price £24000 (inc premium, £29760 - $38390 - €34819) Well you don't see these very often. @Spacefruit has the authority here in my experience. The dial looks good (short index, non-Professional though it is...) and it's got replacement hands and crown. No interior shots but described as havng scratches to the back. Is it worth £30K+? If so, it's all about that dial... Has an extract but not photographed and the full serial no is not disclosed. Lot 142 - 105.012-66 CB - est £5,500-6,500 Hammer price £5500 (inc premium, £6820 - $8798 - €7979) Not bad. Bezel's a little dented between 75 and 80 and otherwise not in amazing condition but there are a lot worse. Dial looks evenly-coloured with creamy lume (is that original, or a relume? It's very even...) and has teh slightly dirty look that a lot of collectors want. As long as the dirt isn't hiding case corrosion or anything nasty. Lot 143 - 145.012-67 - est £6,500-7,500 Hammer price £9000 (inc premium, £11160 - $14396 - €13057) Looks good to me. The dial and hands match well, bezel might well just be in need ot a careful clean, and the watch comes with original 1039 bracelet and an extract. Has the case been polished in the past? The lower right lug does look very shiny... For me, this is the pick of the Speedmasters unless you want to go exotic with blue, or gamble with unusual configurations such as the next couple ... Lot 144 - 145.022-69 ST brown dial - est £6,500-7,500 Hammer price £6500 (inc premium, £8060 - $10397 - €9430) This will be an interesting test - will a not-particularly-even brown coloured dial with an 861 movement behind it, be valued the same as a nice AML black dial with a 321, as in lot 143? Otherwise, looks like a nice watch. Lot 145 - 145.022-69 ST with 220 misprint bezel - est £3,500-4,500 passed - presumably bidding didn't make the low estimate? WoK must have some logic that says if they're only going to pocket <£1,000 in fees from selling a watch, it doesn't deserve more than 5 minutes being photographed, as the above is the only photo published. Looks OK, though the hands do seem a bit too white for the most part, but that could just be harsh lighting. If you want a 220 misprint, go for it. Lot 146 - 145.022-69ST - est £3,500-4,500 passed - presumably bidding didn't make the low estimate? It feels like we're getting to the dregs a bit here. Dirty, washed-out looking dial (though again, that could just be the lighting), and presumably offered by a dealer who's value-add was to take the watch head and stick it on a cheap new NATO. And that's it. The cheapest way into a Tritium-dial Speedmaster on lot 147 might be worth a look [Hammer price £2000 (inc premium, £2480 - $3199 - €2902)], or there's the frankly grubby-looking Gemini IV with extract but no B&P and an estimate of £5-6k on Lot 149, (or $8-9.5k including commission - Hammer price £5000 (inc premium, £6200 - $7998 - €7254). Compared to @Hijak's much nicer example that spent the summer on the FS forum, that feels like a strong estimate.
