We are delighted to announce the sale of a historically important and previously unknown Rolex Submariner Ref. 5513 owned and worn by Steve McQueen. Given by McQueen to his personal stuntman, Loren Janes, and inscribed on the caseback «TO LOREN, THE BEST DAMN STUNTMAN IN THE WORLD. STEVE», it was thought to have been lost in a fire. With its absolutely fascinating provenance, the watch was owned until recently by the late Loren Janes himself, and its remarkable tale of survival, the watch comes to auction as the single most important watch associated with Steve McQueen to ever appear publicly. It will be sold in New York on October 25, with a pre-sale estimate of $300,000 to $600,000. Full story, written by Michael Solomon, on @Forbes. Link in the bio.
