0.38ct. SI-J diamond pendant 3.2gr., 18 inch cable link necklace $840.00 CAD. e14265

A simple 45-degree rotation can make all the difference! This compass heading setting works perfectly for a station chain solitaire, making the two prongs that meet the chain almost disappear from view. The 0.38 carat round brilliant cut they carry is a bright SI-J, made whiter by the warmth of the 14 karat Italian-made yellow gold chain. The necklace measures a comfortable 18 inches long and has been made to last from a sturdy cable link and oversized jump ring ends and lobster clasp for easy fastening. Estate price $840.00 CAD.

Mont Blanc Heritage Spirit Orbis Terrarum 7339 World Timer $4,080.00 CAD. e14434

If you’re a watch person and have a diver’s model, a chronograph, and a classic dress piece, this is something that might interest you. Swiss-made “World Time” watches are nothing new, but the price of this one is especially appealing considering what you get. The MontBlanc Heritage Spirit Orbis Terrarum features an “in house” calibre MB29.20. While not truly 100% in house, the base calibre is a modified Sellita SW300-1, which itself is a cloned non-patent protected ETA 2892, the integrated world timer module is fully made by MontBlanc. You won’t see another version of this movement anywhere. The layered dial is constructed from thin sections of synthetic sapphire printed with a map of the world. Your local time is displayed with the hands in a regular 12-hour format along with a 24-hour display on an outer chapter ring. All the other major world cities times are displayed using the same 24-hour ring. As the day progresses from daylight hours to night hours (local time) a dark blue shadow tracks across the map east to west indicating night vs. daylight hours. No calendar, no seconds hand, Just local time plus every other time zone in the world displayed in a very clever format with some added colourful animation. This is a dial that changes throughout the day. The clear case back display window reveals the business end of the nicely detailed movement. The 41mm stainless steel case is perfect, big enough to display all the information, yet small enough to be comfortable and pass at the next dressy event. A high-quality genuine alligator strap with a deployment buckle finishes off the luxury details. Overall condition is excellent. The watch exhibits a few light dings and shallow scratches on the case and remains in its original unpolished form. Including a 1-year warranty, the watch is estate priced at $4,080.00 CAD. Stock #14434.


2021 Tudor Black Bay Heritage GMT 79830RB (brand new, never worn) $4,794.00 CAD. e14448

The wildly popular Rolex GMT “Pepsi” blue/red GMT-Master II has a suggested retail price of $11,400.00 CAD. If you’re looking for a better price in the secondary and used market, you’re in for a surprise. Asking prices for brand new, or like-new examples are more than twice that of retail. It’s currently a crazy market for certain luxury watch brands. Far more demand than supply has used watches selling for much more than new ones. The Tudor GMT 79830RB is also in high demand with waiting lists at authorized agents. Most examples on the used market have asking prices close to the original retail or more. Our latest Tudor GMT is in 100% original condition and is brand new with most of the protective stickers still in place. It was only tried on when it was originally purchased at a Canadian Rolex/Tudor authorized agent, but never worn outside of the store. The condition is perfect in every way, not a scuff or blemish to be found anywhere on the watch. In addition to offering the basic 3 hand timekeeping function with calendar, the GMT has few tricks up its sleeve. The diamond-shaped tipped red hour hand can point to a second time zone shown in a 24-hour format displayed on the blue/red bezel. The traditional hour hand (local time) can be set independently of the 24-hour 2nd-time zone hand without disturbing the actual time. This handy feature is perfect for the world traveler when moving back and forth through different time zones. The rotating bezel can be turned to temporarily display a 3rd time zone. Daytime hours are shown in red and nighttime hours are in dark blue. The 41mm stainless case is water-tight to 100 meters, protected by a screw-down crown and case-back. Large hands and hour markers contribute to excellent legibility in any lighting condition courtesy of highly luminous pigment. The snowflake hands, aluminum bezel insert, connected minute track, and “rivet” look bracelet give the Tudor GMT an attractive vintage appearance. Comes complete with everything originally supplied when purchased from the Tudor authorized agent in the summer of 2021, including the original bill of sale. The balance of the 5-year warranty will cover the new owner until the summer of 2026. This watch is estate priced at $4,794.00 CAD. Stock #e14448.
