No longer with us... (the watches)!

Post by f1colin »

Found a few pics of recently sold pieces that have made way for the CW's. Common theme in terms of the F1 backdrop!

This one I may come to regret selling last month - a Bamford PVD chrono from the very same Bamford that customises Rolexes (starting at around £10k)! When George Bamford opened his store on Sloane Square in 2009, these were made available at £275 in limited numbers - only found out via Octane magazine and went straight there as the colour combi was something different and I was after a PVD chrono. The movement was, I believe a Miyota. Really well constructed and unusual with the pale blue. Turned heads (and some stomachs) when the baby blue ostrich strap was fitted!

Pictured with Fernando Alonso's 2004 F1 helmet:

Image

Then the obligatory F1 branded watch. Nice piece with Seiko movement but got bored of it, easily replaced if I get the urge again! Sold late 2011 (pictured with Michael Schumacher's 2001 F1 helmet):

Image

Last, the Heuer stopwatch that I picked up a few years ago. Nice Leonidas 7 jewel movement. Sold to a chap restoring an original Mini Cooper S to rally spec so will be dash mounted soon:

Sadly, No photos of the Breitling J Class, Omega Racing edition, Tag Heuer's or Sicura vintage's I've moved on :(

Interesting collection of helmets, I see you've got a Damon Hill down at the bottom. Is the one next to the Heuer a Coulthard Red Bull?

Well spotted, it is a Prost '93 from his last year (and Championship). The Damon is a '96 from his winning year...

The blue & yellow had me a bit stumped - I always thought that bit of Prost's was white with red stripes......

Okay, okay, I'll get my coat.... errrr Anorak! :lol:

Are we allowed to ask which team you work for (own?) or will Bernie put out a contract on us for receiving classified info!

A general interest that has become a very enjoyable but costly passion for 20 years - particularly when combined with watches and cars! Have built up quite a network of contacts including drivers, teamsters and fellow nutcases which always helps. Watches are easier to smuggle in the house behind the Mrs though... !

PS - the yellow is the corner of the Camel sponsorship he had in 93 only with Williams...

The problem being that you could deliver Felipe's helmet... (make your own joke in this space).

Trouble is, the Massa lid would have steam coming out of it if you put it anywhere near a Hamilton helmet :lol:

I had considered a response about Barrichello & springs, but thought that might be in poor taste.... :lol: Errr, did I say that out loud? Ooops :shock:
