LOS ANGELES, CA.- Admirers of the late best-selling author, Jackie Collins, will be offered the chance to own the very watches which inspired, and appear in, her scandalous tales of sex, seduction and the sizzling LA heat. On 16 May, 29 watches owned by Jackie, who sold over 500 million copies of her 32 novels, will be offered as part of a sale of the contents of her Beverly Hills mansion, an auction comprised of more than 800 lots including sculpture, furniture and jewellery.

Some of the world’s most celebrated watchmakers are represented, including Harry Winston, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, Rolex and Chanel. Leading the collection is a Patek Philippe fine and rare platinum and diamond wristwatch (US$15,000-20,000), an understated yet glamorous dress watch worthy of the most refined of Jackie’s characters.

Harry Winston is a name synonymous with the diamonds adorning the rich and famous, and the fine 18k white gold and diamond rectangular wristwatch with date (US$5,000-7,000) is a perfect timepiece for those who believe that beauty need not be sacrificed for practicality, whilst the Chanel ceramic and diamond automatic wristwatch with moonphase and date (US$3,000-5,000) is a stunning example of the monochromatic chic for which the French fashion house is so renowned.

Other highlights include:

• An 18k gold large ‘Calatrava’ wristwatch by Patek Philippe (US$5,000-8,000)

• An Audemars Piguet fine 18k gold automatic wristwatch with perpetual calendar and moonphase (US$8,000-12000)

• A Patek Philippe 18k yellow gold rectangular wristwatch (US$6,000-8,000)

• A Harry Winston fine 18k rose gold and diamond rectangular wristwatch with date (US$4,000-6,000)

• A Chopard fine 18k yellow gold and diamond lady’s wristwatch (US$2,000-3,000)
