Catawiki Prestigious Watch Auction February 11th 2018
Omega De Ville Tourbillon Ref. 5133.30.00
Up for auction is this red gold Omega De Ville with central tourbillon movement, caliber 2600. It is a numbered edition watch, with a hand-guilloché silver dial. The number of the watch (02 in this case) is indicated on the dial. Two sapphire discs rotate the hour and minute hands. This transparent disc also enables the wearer to have a glance at the central tourbillon mechanism.
This Omega De Ville Tourbillon reference 5133.30.00 has a diameter of 38.7mm and comes on the famous Omega brick bracelet in red gold. This bracelet was inspired by the original Constellation Grand Luxe from the early 1950’s.
Catawiki auctions this watch on February 11th and estimates it between €60.000 and €78.000. We feel that this estimate is relatively high, as there are no papers with this watch. However, only few have been auctioned in the past, so who knows.

Richard Mille – RM016 – Automatic Extra Flat
Up next is the Richard Mille RM 016, their first attempt for a rectangular (extra flat) case. A case that requires 202 separate machine operations, and which took about 18 days of machine adjustments before they could even start. The base plate of this movement, even as the bridges and balance-cock are made of titanium. The screws that go into the titanium case are also made of Grade 5 titanium, allowing better control of the torque when these are mounted. Richard Mille creates these high-tech watches that are inspired by motor sports and yachting, using state-of-the-art materials for all parts of the watch.
This watch measures only 8.25mm in height (L49.8mm x W38mm) and comes on a rubber strap with titanium folding clasp. Catawiki’s descriptions mentions this is a full set, with box and papers. They estimate it between €38.000 and €50.000. It was originally bought in 2014 at Gassan and according to the seller only worn a few times.

Rolex – Daytona Reference 116505
A watch that virtually needs no introduction is the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona. Catawiki’s Prestigious Watch Auction offers this 18 carat Everose gold version, reference 116505 with pink panda dial. This 40mm gold chronograph has Rolex’ in-house manufacture caliber 4130 movement and comes on an Everose oyster bracelet. Everose is Rolex’ own alloy for rose gold. Where rose gold tends to turn yellow over time (and wear), Everose will always maintain its rose gold color.
This Rolex Daytona 116505 is dated 2017 and still comes with the full 5 years of warranty. Rolex warrantees an accuracy of -2/+2 seconds deviation per day on average, with this chronometer movement. Although the retail price of this Rolex Daytona is €34600, Catawiki estimates it between €28000 and €37000, probably due to the high demand for the Daytona.
This is a full set and the watch has never been worn.
