Rolex awarded to Peter Croft could sell £10,000 at Fellows

A Rolex watch awarded to former professional sports shooter Peter Croft, after he finished third at the 1983 British Olympic Trap Grand Prix, could sell for £10,000 at Fellows Auctioneers.

Croft represented the country in various international competitions, including the 1984 summer Olympics, the 1982 commonwealth games and the 1990 Commonwealth Games.

This Rolex model was in production for eight years until 1988, and it features a “stainless steel case with a calibrated bezel”.

Fellows’ Luxury Watch Sale will be a live auction that takes place at its Jewellery Quarter saleroom, beginning at 11am starting today (26 October).

Laura Bishop, watch manager at Fellows Auctioneers, said: “To add to the already incredible selection of watches available in our upcoming sale is this brilliant Rolex GMT awarded during the 1983 British Olympic Trap Grand Prix. 

“The watch has an amazing history as it was awarded to Peter Croft for finishing third in the trap shooting competition.”

She added: “Peter smoked his last 100 clays straight in order to finish third and acquire this alluring item, which we expect will generate a lot of attention in our Luxury Watch Sale.”
