I guess its the rarity value also. Roger doesn't make many watches 10 a year I think between him and his apprentice.
Still rather have a RS watch than a Rolex any day irrespective of price. I would like to know why Roger picked the Isle of Mann to manufacture his watches and not London.
Indeed. That's the one. They were an unlikely pair, I must say. For both of them I admire the fact that it's not just about keeping time, but keeping time with elegance. Having said that, I knew their watches would be expensive but had no idea just how expensive. Yikes! :-)
A friend of mine has this Omega watch which belonged to her aunt. On the back of the case is the engraving, "1947-1972 Presented to <aunt's name> by <company name>."
And also "14K gold." There's 2 small diamonds on the front.
The watch has been in a drawer for 10 years, but winds up and appears to work fine. Any ideas what the value on this might be? I'm guessing just sentimental value, but who knows.
