Following meeting George Bamford in 2000 when I had my original collection including lots of “new old stock”, we have continued discussing watches we love over the years. I was delighted when his company, Bamford Watch Department, became the official customisation house for LVMH brands Zenith, BVLGARI and TAG Heuer last year. The TAG Heuer Monaco “The Dark Lord” has always eluded me and indeed over the years, I have twice missed out on owning one of these beautiful rare watches. Recently George suggested that we should come up with a design which was special to me with all that is vintage and could also add the “twist” that Bamford Watch Department is infamous for. It seemed like the perfect opportunity and with BWD’s expertise, the Monaco proved to be a perfect watch to work on. We changed the red to orange as black and orange has always been my favourite colour combination. George and his team added the perfect twist by adding chequered flag elements which feature on the hard to find original boxes. This one off piece is available for £8,500.read more
In 2000 FHM magazine ran a series of articles about unusual collections and collectors. They contacted myself because for some time, while working in a retail jewellers, I decided to look for and collect Heuer watches. Nobody displayed the slightest bit of interest in what were then dismissed as “second hand Tags”; I thought it was crazy that a 2447S Carrera would only sell for £250 so I collected any that came my way. After the article I was contacted by Neil Duckworth, managing director of Tag Heuer, who had been with the brand before the Tag takeover and therefore had quite a collection of unsold Heuer watches in his arsenal. We decided to offer both collections for sale through Sotheby’s online which in those times was a very new format of selling. The interest and publicity and success of the sale indicated that there was a greater appreciation for these fabulous old timepieces than I had first anticipated; thus inspiring the creation of vintageheuer.com which I launched 3 years later. I could never have predicted the heights at which prices have sky-rocketed to today and have no doubt that they will continue to rise. What a long way we have come in such a short time. Enclosed is a link to the press release for the original auction quoting average prices of $600 but Monacos were expected to reach $1500! file:///C:/Users/Jonathan/Desktop/heuer%20auction%202000.pdfread more
