  • British Military IWC Mark 11 RAF pilots wristwatch issued in 1952. The Mark 11’s are one of the most famous Royal Air Force issued watches and known for their high quality even by today’s standard. These watches were far superior to any commercially made civilian watch at the time which shows the importance of the British Military contract for IWC. The watch features a robust manual wind cal. 89 movement with “hacking” seconds function engraved with the military arrow. The movement is housed in an antimagnetic iron cage including the dial. Overall this example remains in excellent original condition with a few minor battle scars to the case.

Crafted for Connoisseurs The Rake x Watches of Knightsbridge

Earlier this year, after an exclusive launch event hosted by Alessandro Palazzi at The Dukes Hotel Bar, saw the beginning of a new partnership between The Rake and Watches of Knightsbridge.

The family’s flair for trading objets d’art started over 50 years ago at No. 91 Portobello Road, the antiques shop owned by Morris Sutton. His son, and co-founder of Watches of Knightsbridge Simon Sutton initially pursued a career as a professional downhill skier, but soon followed his father into the antiques trade. However, it was Simon’s passion for rare timepieces, that in his 20s led to him branching out as a watch dealer. And his son, Toby shares the same enthusiasm for vintage watches, together founding Watches of Knightsbridge in 2011.

A successful auction house, with an impressive showroom, Watches of Knightsbridge has also built a worldwide reputation when it comes to curating exceptional vintage timepieces for direct sales. Trust is key in a market that is often unregulated – and with each watch coming with a guarantee of authenticity certificate and the watch register certificate – it provides the buyer with solid protection.
