Watch containing world’s oldest rum to go on sale at auction

Gold Rum Watch

Birmingham-based auction house, Fellows, will be selling a Speake-Marin gold Rum Watch in its 30 October Watch Sale.

It contains a droplet of the world’s oldest rum and represents the second piece by the watchmaker that’s gone under Fellows’ hammer this year, following the sale of a titanium Rum Watch for £14,000 in July.

Fellows’ watch specialist Michael Jagiela said: “After the success of the titanium Rum watch, we are delighted to offer an even rarer, 18ct rose gold example.

“This particular watch is limited to only 10 examples and we are certain that it will create plenty of excitement in the saleroom.”

The latest 18ct rose gold version is estimated to make £10,000 – £15,000 when it’s sold at the end of this month.

The rum element is incorporated into the watch via a droplet of 1780 Harewood rum, certified by the Guinnes Book of Records as the world’s oldest, on the 11 hour mark.
