    Rolex, Daytona 'Paul Newman', Stainless Steel Chronograph Wristwatch with Bracelet, circa 1970
    Estimate £95,000–190,000

    One of only 19 built to Le Mans racing specification and a two-time entrant at the historic 24 hour race, this car, spectacular in its presentation and flawless in its provenance and history, is one of the most unique and dynamic modern racing Ferraris.

    The Daytona’s original name being Le Mans, this highly celebrated chronograph stands out as the perfect match to this exceptional car. The Paul Newman dial reinforces the racing feel as the legendary actor himself would trust his beloved Rolex Daytona whilst racing.

    Rolex , 'Monoblocco', Stainless Steel Chronograph Wristwatch Former Property of a Member of the SAS Regiment, circa 1946

    A beautiful example of one of Porsche’s purest sports racing cars, complete with an extensive dossier of historic paperwork, and completely restored to concours presentation. This model is fully eligible for the world’s most prestigious historic motor racing events around the world.

    Lovers of vintage mechanics and timeless elegance will appreciate this rare Rolex ‘Monoblocco’. Boasting a lovely early Oyster case, constructed as a single piece of steel, this timepiece is the perfect companion to endure shocks and record lap times during a spirited drive.

    Fp Journe, Chronometre Bleu, Tantalum Wristwatch, circa 2011
    Estimate £10,000–15,000

    The ultimate iteration of the famed ground-breaking modern Bugatti supercar. Often classified as the very pinnacle of French Heritage and Italian Engineering, this particular example shows less than 1,000km from new and was one of just 30 originally built.

    An equally intricate conversation piece, the FP Journe Chronometre Bleu is encased in Tantalum and conceals a movement made from gold. It shares the Bugatti's exceptional mechanics and pioneering vision to combine unusual design cues with a variety of materials, making an absolutely delightful ensemble.

    The earliest motoring example in the Paris auction represents an outstanding example of Edwardian design and French engineering. This fully-restored, London to Brighton-eligible four-seater is powered by an impressive 16 horsepower four cylinder motor, combining refined elegance with ample power and seating for the purist fan of vintage touring.

    It did not take long for our watch specialists to think of the Frodsham pocket watch from 1873 to match this car. Both pieces share some gold detailing, utmost elegance and pure functionality.

    In many ways, this model is the ultimate, quintessential Ferrari sports cars of the late 1960s. Further rarefied by its fully-restored, Ferrari Factory-certified condition and outstanding provenance with previous long-term single ownership.

    The ideal 1960s timepiece for a distinguished gentleman looking for something special to match with the car is the present Rolex 1675. Its tropicalized brown dial completes the luxurious feel of the leather interior, while the rare Eagle Beak crown guards complement the Ferrari aerodynamic design. Furthermore, the exclamation mark dial adds yet another level of exclusivity to this elegant duo.
