On June 15, 2022, Sotheby’s will hold a “Precious Watches” auction in New York. The star items of this auction are the Rolex Paul Newman Daytona “John Player Special” watch and the F.P. Journe Tourbillon Remontoi D’egalite constant force tourbillon watch.
This watch is called “John Player Special” because it is similar to the racing car of the Lotus team sponsored by John Player Special in the 1970s, and it uses a contrasting black and gold color scheme. The original bracelet and certificate accompany the watch. It is not only rare but also well-preserved. The pre-auction estimate is 600,000 to 1.2 million U.S. dollars. Rolex knockoff.
Then there’s the F.P. Journe Tourbillon Remontoi D’egalite constant-force tourbillon, produced in 1999 and a rare early example of the brand’s sought-after “Reference T” collection.
Released at the Baselworld in 1999, this watch was not only F.P. Journe’s first mass-produced watch but also the first to use a constant-force mechanism, demonstrating the brand’s sophisticated skills—in-depth knowledge of functional watch design and technology. Tag Heuer replica watches.
The Tourbillon Souverain series was initially equipped with a 1498 rhodium-plated brass movement and then switched to a 1403 gold movement in 2004.
In addition to the above two watches, other highlights of Sotheby’s New York “Precious Watches” auction in June 2022 include the F.P. Journe Chronometre, a Resonance watch, which is estimated at $200,000 to $300,000 before the auction; Vacheron Constantin Ref.80251 Wristwatches, estimated at $200,000 to $300,000 before auction; and Richard Mille RM 005 watches, estimated at $100,000 to $150,000 before auction.
