Rolex, an Oyster Perpetual Submariner, 1959

Rolex, an Oyster Perpetual Submariner, 100m = 330ft, gentleman's stainless steel wristwatch, circa 1959 with tropic dial and hands, fitted with steel and early jubilee bracelet, model number 6536-1, case number 399410, bezel believed to have been replaced 30 years ago, running (note the case number of lot 213 is 399402). History. This watch was used in a Rolex advertising portfolio c1960. It is one of two submariner wristwatches (lots 212 and 213) given to Stanley Sayer by Rolex and has been in the family since. Stanley Sayer was a film cameraman working for Technicolour, he set up a special effects company, and also worked on several film sets including Superman and Star Wars. He was a keen diver and inventor of the minisub. The minisub enabled divers to move underwater effortlessly, steer a course and to light their way ahead. Although he himself did not patent the design, it attracted widespread interest. Around 1959 Rolex were interested in using Stanley and his machine in their advertising portfolio and took a number of photos with him in action wearing one of their watches for publication. In payment for his services, he was invited to keep the watch that he wore in the press shoot (this watch lot 212) and also given a second Submariner, which he then gave to his son in 1961. He wore the watch daily until he passed in April 2000. The watches have been consigned by his son.

Beryl Cook (1926-2008) a rare double sided painting, ‘French Tango’ and ‘The Expedition’

Beryl Cook (1926-2008) a rare double sided painting, 'French Tango' and 'The Expedition' oil on board, framed, 113.50cm x 88.50cm. Signed on one side. "It’s not just the faces, but the whole of Beryl’s paintings that have a ‘look’. She fills them with bold, clear designs that immediately cheer you up. Her description of the tango bar is very telling. She was uncomfortable when the bar was empty, except for a frenzied couple dancing, but when many more customers arrived she was happier, stopped laughing nervously, and ‘everything settled down’... When you look closely at her compositions you can see that everything in them, every movement, mass, look and shape is balanced or echoed, one by another, until the whole picture seems to dance together." Julian Spalding in Beryl Cook Happy Days, 1995.
