As promised, every Tuesday I will feature two unique pieces being offered on the bay (ebay).

Omega Speedmaster 40th Anniversary (23 watch) collection!
1. An amazing collection of 23 limited edition Omega Speedmasters. This collection is one of only forty made. A similar example brought an astounding $368,900.00. This can be your at $145,000.00.

Seller's Description: The watches were made in 1997 and bought in 1998 when they were released. I am the original owner and have had them stored away all these years. They were released as a tribute to 40th anniversary of the Omega Speedmaster Professionals. A collection of 23 Speedmaster watches presented in a case fitted with a an Omega briefcase, that doubles up as a display case, fitted with genuine NASA Apollo-Space suit. Each watch in the collection is adorned with a different NASA mission patch on it's dial at the 9 o'clock position: Starting with the 1965 Gemini V to the 1973 Skylab SL-4. It also contains areplica of the original 1957 Speedmaster. This comes comeplete with all certificates and booklets.

Rolex 5100 Beta21
2. Another amazing offering: is one of the rarest Rolex's ever made.  The Rolex 5100 Quartz "Beta21". This piece is essentially Rolex's first Quartz offering. It is the Grandfather to the Oysterquartz. This piece is 18k yellow gold and is 1/1000.

Seller's Description: This is an exceptional example of a Rolex Beta 21 only 1000 of these pieces were ever produced by Rolex and is the only Rolex model to every be numbered from the factory.  What makes this watch even rarer is that the first 150 pieces came with this bracelet the other 850 came with a slightly different version.  This is one Rolex that is truly worth of adding to any collection.  This particular Beta 21 is in exceptional condition and is the nicest one I have seen, the band is tight and complete and the watch is scratch and dent free.  It was just sent to the Rolex service center for a overhaul and cleaning and comes with the box they sent back.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
