Watches Highlights from 19th August’s Jewellery, Silver & Watches auction

We take a look at some of our favourite watches from the day

On the 19th of August, Dawsons held a wonderful Jewellery, Silver, and Watches auction.


Often, when people join us for our Jewellery, Silver & Watches sale, they will keep an eye out for a unique Rolex.

Rolex watches are known worldwide as the standard in luxury watchmaking, and we can't wait to show you the excellent timepieces that came up at our more recent sale. 

The Rolex Submariner is always a hit with bidders, and this item was no different. An exquisite Rolex Submariner Date stainless steel wristwatch with a black dial and luminous indices set in 18 carat white gold and a black ceramic rotating bezel was undoubtedly a head-turner.
