18th October 2007 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Cartier watches attract attention to auction

Two Cartier watches with a possible combined value of up to £5,500 are attracting attention to an auction in Birmingham, UK

The wrist and pocket watches auction is being put on by 131 year old auctioneers Fellows & Sons, on Monday 22nd October 2007.

There are 472 modern and antique watches for sale with many highlights.

Two of the pieces currently attracting a lot of attention are the gentleman’s Cartier watches.

Cartier is well recognized as one of the leading brands in high quality jewellery and there is always a strong following for their watches.

The first watch (illustrated) is valued at up to £3,500.

It’s a gentleman’s 18 carat gold Roadster chronograph automatic wrist watch with black Roman numerals and hands with luminescent hour and minute hands.

It has an 18 carat gold Cartier link bracelet with hidden butterfly clasp.

Amazingly, looking at the watch’s value, it’s in poor condition. There are many wear and tear marks, it has a build up of moisture in the case, and the watch isn’t currently running.

The second Cartier watch is in much better condition, and is valued at £1,500 to £2,000.

It is a gentleman’s steel cased automatic Santos 100, and has a large square face with stylised Roman numerals.

It is fitted to a Cartier black leather strap with a butterfly clasp, and comes with a box and papers.

Fellows & Sons holds its auctions in Birmingham, and opens them to buyers across the globe using the latest internet auction technology.

The 131 year old firm has a comprehensive online catalogue available, and encourages online bidding during sales.
