Footnotes

  • First appearing in the early 1960s, this 'exotic' dial manufactured by Singer was renamed the 'Paul Newman' by collectors after the American actor wore the watch in promotional posters for the film 'Winning' and throughout his private life. By sinking the subsidiary dials and outer scale within the opaque black dial background, the dial achieves an unusual three-dimensionality and an instantly recognisable look. As such the Paul Newman has earned its place among the most coveted watches for collectors around the world.

    The current lot has been in the same family since it was purchased. Last serviced by Boodle & Dunthorne in 1992.
