This happens to be my fathers watch which I inherited and handed over to Fellows for auctioning. I did watch the live auction but contrary to what was said and video's on my mobile phone, it did not sell as it had a reserve of £6,500. I'm waiting to hear back from Fellows with an explanation. One other issue with Fellows relates to the pictures of an unattached strap at the 6 o'clock lugs. Unfortunately they broke the strap when trying to open the case but I knew nothing of this until seeing the catalogue pictures. I'm toying with the idea of re-listing it with them at a lower reserve or simply having the watch back and maybe getting it serviced by TAG Heuer in Switzerland and the glass polished but not sure if this is a wise move. PS - Jeff: the second picture is a different Skipper.
