    Dirty Dozen - a complete set.

    Up for sale at Watches of Knightsbridge - estimate 35-40k

    Strong money especially when you add in the Buyer Premium.

    https://auctions.watchesofknightsbridge.com/auctions (lot 94)

    Maybe, but for someone with money who doesn't want the hassle of chasing after the watches individually they may view this as a golden opportunity. Also, some of the rarer watches do command high prices these days. Be interesting for someone with their finger on the pulse to guesstimate how much you would expect to pay for a full set. I've certainly seen some at 6k - 7k, but I'm sure others are cheaper.

    I wouldn't want to buy a ready made full set. The thrill of the chase is most of the fun of it.

    The rarest is the Grana. You'll be looking at 8K for a good one, maybe more. The IWC is probably about 5k. The Longines is getting up to 4k now. Best bang for buck is the Cyma as it's a Stainless Steel case, a more contemporary size at about 38mm and a relatively modest price at about 1k.

    I'd have put the full set at about 30K. That's before adding the buyer's premium from the auction house.

    Here's my full set plus a couple btw

    A stunning collection.

    It'll be a lucky buyer that gets those.

    This is the difficult one to get but by no means the best of the 12. There's just not that many of them:

    This is the prettiest. imho.



    It didn't look so good when it was found buried in a Welsh field by a guy using a metal detector! Above photo was taken on the Gower peninsula.
