This is the pride and joy of my collection, unfortunately I rarely get to wear it living in London, for it is instantly recognisable and I would be shot or stabbed for it! I wear this only to special events/occasions to which I travel to by car.
I had this watch iced in South Africa in 2007 at a cost of around 70,000 Rand (£7000) this included the stones and the workmanship.
The watch was originally bought from a Unclaimed Pawn Auction and I paid £4,700 for it (18ct Gold) which was cheap. The watch now stands me at £11,700 but with 12 carats of diamonds and the price of gold at what it is, this baby is currently valued for insurance purposes at £35,500 due to the diamond quality.
A good investment and another watch that will eventually end up with my Grandson. He loves watches now at 3, so by the time he inherits my collection, he will have a passion for them. (at least that is what I am hoping for)
Going back to S.A in December and taking a friends Breitling out there to get iced - bezel & case 45,000 rand (£4000)
