"Men's luxury watches are on fire right now," said Ethan Miller of Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd. "We are consistently producing the kind of 'estate fresh' wristwatches that collectors want. All vintage luxury watches in this sale surpassed our expectations. The Rolex Explorer stole the show. It's a rare model. 'Tool' watches like the Explorer and Submariner were often bought by professionals to use and abuse, and often were used and abused. This one was a rare survivor."

The stainless-steel Rolex Oyster Perpetual Explorer, from 1966, was the auction's top lot. It boasted a matte 'frog's foot' dial with tritium hour markers and original creamy luminous hands. The caseback was engraved to the previous owner. The Omega Speedmaster, from 1962, was the sale's runner-up top lot. It featured "DON" (dot-over-ninety) bezel and alpha hands, caliber 321 movement, and a non-Omega steel band. The caseback was also engraved to the previous owner.
