Objects of Desire is delighted to offer for sale two items of formal dress wear.
There are few items that a gentleman can wear to discreetly show his style but an ultra slim gold pocket watch and
cufflinks with matching dress shirt buttons are all that is needed to reflect this and the elegance of the occasion.
The pocket watch is by Vacheron and Constantin, the oldest watch makers in the world, established in 1755. The ultra slim case is 18 carat yellow gold with an 18 jewel manual wind movement, the silvered dial with elegant poker hands and subsidiary seconds dial. The pocket watch is displayed within its original burgundy leather presentation case.
Diameter: 48 mm
These ultra slim pocket watches are rarely seen on the open market but there is one that we have found – please click HERE to view.
Objects of Desire is pleased to offer our Vacheron & Constantin Pocket Watch at a competitive price of £5,500.
The perfect complement for a formal occasion to an ultra slim pocket watch is the English, Art Deco, 18 carat gold, diamond and mother of pearl cufflinks with four matching dress buttons and two studs. All presented in their original red leather and gold tooled case with Garrards Co Ltd, Goldsmiths and Crown Jewellers to H.M. The Queen printed in gold on the inside of the white silk covered lid.
The case is in perfect order.
N.B. The original shirt button fixing loops are not gold
Of course these items can be purchased separately but if they were to be sold as the perfect evening wear set then we would accept £7,000.
N.B. There are two similar sets for sale which we have found but neither are by the well renowned jewellers, Garrards Co Ltd., and are therefore not of equal quality. These sets are priced between £2,164 and £2,213.49 so we believe that £2,250 is a very fair asking price for this superior set, retailed by the Goldsmiths and Crown Jewellers to H.M. The Queen.
