three-register Carrera, with blue decimal minutes track

L2,500-3,500
E3,000-4,000
$3,900 -5,400

some collectors believe that the decimal minutes track is the "real thing" for a racing watch, as this is how time was measured in rallies; blue track on early Carreras is especially pretty

L3,000-5,000

L6,000-8,000

L3,000-4,000

L2,000-3,000
E2,400-3,600

L1,800-2,200
E2,200-2,700

L2,500-3,000
E3,000-3,600

L2,000-3,000
E2,400-3,600

Red Easy Rider chronograph, with the Jacky Ickx name on the dial

L2,000-3,000
E2,400-3,600
$3,100-4,600

a fine sample of an awful Heuer; not taken seriuosly by most serious collectors; Jacky Ickx has autographed the box, and dated it February 15, 1973

White-dialed Carrera 45 (two register), with blue decimal minutes track

L2,500-3,500
E3,000-4,000
$3,900-5,400

this Carrera is good evidence in the argument that two-register Carreras might be prettier than the three-register brothers

57

L5,000-7,000
E6,100-8,500
$7,700-11,000

new old stock is rare, but to see this one in the original box, with the cardboard sleeve is unprecedented; likely to see "premium" for this set

stainless steel Montreal, blue dial with white registers, and painted luminous markers

L2,500-3,500

L4,000-6,000
E4,900-7,300

L2,500-3,500
E3,000-4,000
$3,900-5,400

the blue dial with applied markers may be the most common version of the Montreal, but there's good reason for that; many collectors want their Montreals to be blue

81

Autavia, Ref. 1163V, 1974

"Viceroy" AUtavia, with markings indicating issuance by Israel Defense Forces; special white hands for military use

L2,000-3,000
E2,400-3,600
$3,100-4,600

IDF Autavias are rare, and there is considerable variation in the executions; the "Viceroy" style, with the bright white hands is unique, in my experience; stunning

82

Carrera, Ref. 1153N, 1971

gray/blue dialed Caliber 12 Carrera, with white registers; co-branded "Abercrombie & Fitch"

L3,000-4,000
E3,600-4,900
$4,600-6,200

the blue / gray is a pretty version of the Carrera, and the co-branding makes this one very rare

83

Autavia, Ref. 1163T, 1972

later version of the "Siffert" Autavia; brushed steel hands, with blue accents; 3-6-9-12 on the hour recorder; Caliber 12

gold-plated Caliber 12 Carrera, with champagne dial and black registers

L2,000-3,000
E2,400-3,600
$3,100-4,600

87

Autavia, Ref. 1163T, 1974

later version of the "Siffert" Autavia; white painted steel hands, with black inserts and blue tips; 1-through-12 on the hour recorder

L4,000-6,000
E4,900-7,300
$6,200-9,300

the "Albino" hands (white painted steel) are unique, in my experience, and give this "Siffert" a distinctive look

88

Carrera, Ref. 1153N, 1969

super rare "Chronomatic" version of the Carrera, gray / blue dial is more towards charcoal, while the standard production Carreras tend toward blue

L7,000-9,000
E8,500-11,000
$11,000-14,000

we have seen less than five Chronomatic Carreras, and this is the only one in NOS or mint condition; this is one of the stars of this auction, in an understated way

89

Carrera, Ref. 2547N, 1968

Carrera 12 Dato, with black dial and white registers; blue accents (date numerals and crescent tip of date hand)

L4,000-6,000
E4,900-7,300
$6,200-9,300

the collectors' favorite version of the Carrera 12 Dato, and for very good reason; condition described as "excellent"

90

Skipper, Ref. 15640, 1974

Carrera 15 Skipper, with blue bezel

L1,000-1,500
E1,200-1,800
$1,500-2,300

91

Verona, Ref. 110.215N, 1978

black-dialed Verona in steel case, with gold-plated bezel; gilt and white-edged hands

L1,800-2,200
E2,200-2,700
$2,800-3,400

92

Carrera, Ref. 150.573B, 1974

barrel-shaped Caliber 15 Carrera, with two-toned striped blue dial, and black register

L2,000-3,000
E2,400-3,600
$3,100-4,600

93

Verona, Ref. 110.213N, 1978

black-dialed Verona in steel case; white hands with luminous inserts

L2,500-3,500
E3,000-4,000
$3,900-5,400

the jet black dial makes this the most dramatic execution of the four Veronas

94

Autavia, Ref. 1163T, 1969

rare "Chronomatic" version of the Siffert Autavia (white dial with black registers); has original box and sales receipt from August 1969

L10,000-15,000
E12,000-18,000
$15,000-23,000

perhaps the most exceptional watch in the entire auction -- the earliest-dated sample of the Chronomatic that we have seen in the collectors' community, with the original box and store receipt

95

Silverstone, Ref. 110.313F, 1974

fume (brown) Silverstone, on original graduated steel bracelet

L4,000-6,000
E4,900-7,300
$6,200-9,300

viewed "in the metal", this Silverstone is nothing short of stunning; the tone of the dial changes at every angle, from silver to brown, and all shades in between

96

Carrera, Ref. 1158 CHN, 1972

18 karat gold automatic Carrera; champagne dial with black registers and black date disc

L7,000-9,000
E8,500-11,000
$11,000-14,000

the 18 karat automatic Carreras have been "hot" over the past year, but we have not seen any that are New Old Stock

97

Camaro, Ref. 73345T, 1970

two-register Camaro, in gold plated case; tachymeter track on the dial

L1,400-1,800

$2,200-2,800

98

black-dialed manual-wind Monaco, in black PVD case

L10,000-15,000
E12,000-18,000
$15,000-23,000

there are probably 20 of the black PVD Monacos in the collectors' community, but we have only seen one or two in New Old Stock condition

the "Steve McQueen" Monaco; Caliber 12 automatic; blue with white registers

L7,000-9,000
