These watches are not to be confused with normal pre-owned pieces as they were part of a collection and are genuine unworn time pieces which can only increase in value. A solid investment for a discerning buyer. These watches are on offer at not much more than the non-limited edition, new Speedmaster Schumacher Legend 4, which sells at £3320 each and would be without the kudos, desirability or provenance of these 4 certificated limited edition timepieces.
We guarantee all our watches are 100% genuine, they come with a written mechanical guarantee, backed by the British National Association of Goldsmiths
