  • Catalogue Essay

    Launched in 1990 replacing the fathomed ref. 5513 initially introduced in 1962, the ref. 14060 is a transitional model and featured an arguably desirable dial without a date function, which received mixed feelings from collectors as some believed that the addition of the Cyclopes lens broke the perfect symmetry of the dial. Furthermore, the ref. 14060 featured the last “pre-super” case, hence the absence of “Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified” on the dial giving the dial an uncluttered and clean appearance.

    The present example preserved in attractive overall condition is double signed and retailed by Tiffany & Co. heightening the rarity for the present example. Furthermore, the present example is the first Rolex ref. 14060 double signed Tiffany & Co. to ever appear in a PHILLIPS in Association with Bacs & Russo auction. The present example is accompanied by a Tiffany & Co outer packaging and presentation box and a Rolex Japan service guarantee.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1905

    Founded in 1905 England by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis as Wilsdorf & Davis, it soon became known as the Rolex Watch Company in 1915, moving its headquarters to Geneva in 1919. Like no other company, the success of the wristwatch can be attributed to many of Rolex's innovations that made them one of the most respected and well-known of all luxury brands. These innovations include their famous "Oyster" case — the world's first water resistant and dustproof watch case, invented in 1926 — and their "Perpetual" — the first reliable self-winding movement for wristwatches launched in 1933. They would form the foundation for Rolex's Datejust and Day-Date, respectively introduced in 1945 and 1956, but also importantly for their sports watches, such as the Explorer, Submariner and GMT-Master launched in the mid-1950s.

    One of its most famous models is the Cosmograph Daytona. Launched in 1963, these chronographs are without any doubt amongst the most iconic and coveted of all collectible wristwatches. Other key collectible models include their most complicated vintage watches, including references 8171 and 6062 with triple calendar and moon phase, "Jean Claude Killy" triple date chronograph models and the Submariner, including early "big-crown" models and military-issued variants.
