Launched in 1956, the Day-Date was the first self-winding and waterproof chronometer watch by Rolex. Designed by the founder Hans Wilsdorf, the Rolex flagship model has a built-in calendar that displays the full day and date. It is popularly known as the “Rolex President” due to its symbolic bracelet and association with many eminent American leaders, including Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, and Lyndon B. Johnson. The upcoming auction, presented by Hampton Estate Auction, features a Rolex President Day-Date diamond wristwatch. The 18-karat gold watch has an oyster case and a winding crown that ensures a double waterproof system. Also featured is a Piaget Polo chronograph steel limited-edition watch. This luxury men’s watch has a black guilloché dial, a black rubber strap, and a changeable calfskin strap.
Another highlight is a Tiffany & Co. Peretti Diamonds by the Yard 18-karat gold necklace. Designer Elsa Peretti’s first collection for Tiffany was a commercial success and also elevated silver in luxury jewelry. Peretti’s Diamonds by the Yard collection is a fusion of delicate, thin chains and bezel-set gems that offer a different perspective for the use of diamonds in jewelry. Also featured in the auction is a David Webb ruby and emerald bracelet, as well as a gold, sapphire, and diamond brooch pendant by designer Andrew Clunn. The Fine Jewelry and Watches Auction will offer timepieces by Buccellati, Chopard, and Patek Philippe, in addition to jewels by Loree Rodkin, Beaudry, and Cartier. Interested collectors can explore the full listings and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
