Bob’s Watches will be holding its Spring 2024 “Family Jewels” auction which dives into the elegance of yesteryears - a curated selection of preowned luxury watches that encapsulate the essence of time itself.

On March 8, 2024, at 9:00 am PST, enthusiasts and collectors alike will have the unique opportunity to acquire pieces from an exquisite collection that spans the illustrious histories of Omega and Rolex.

Each of these collectable timepieces comes from the original purchasing families, hence the name “Family Jewels” auction.

Each lot has been meticulously selected to represent the pinnacle of vintage craftsmanship and design, offering a tangible piece of horological history.

“One of the best parts of my job is finding these watches and talking to the original owners and original families about them; I love hearing the stories firsthand,” said Brandon Frazin, Director of Vintage at Bob’s Watches.

“The 5513 in the sale is coming from the wife who got it for her husband on their wedding day,” he said. “She picked the Sub because they were divers, and she had the caseback engraved to commemorate the day.”
