There’s nothing hotter in the world of vintage watches than old-school Rolexes these days. From Daytonas that turn up in used couches to auctions of Rolexes once owned by the likes of Andy Warhol, Jack Nicklaus, and Marlon Brando, Rolex watches are the choice of collectors who want serious horological investments. The latest “Fresh Finds” auction at Bob’s Watches showcases sixteen vintage, collectible Rolex timepiece ranging from the very ref. 6241 Rolex ‘Paul Newman’ Daytona (worth over a quarter of a million dollars) found inside a thrift store couch to the ref. 6538 Submariner worn by Sean Connery in the James Bond movies. Each one in the auction easily qualifies as a coveted grail watch, some more than others, of course. But you’d be hard-pressed to find such an aggregation of fine vintage Rolexes in one place, so prepare to spend.
