The Custom Gold Watch Stirling Moss Wore For 38 Years Is Headed To Auction

Often referred to as the “greatest driver never to win a World Championship,” Stirling Moss is unequivocally one of the most celebrated drivers in motorsport history, with an illustrious career that included more than 200 race wins and four runners up spots in the championship, amongst numerous other noteworthy feats. Sadly, the International Motorsports Hall-of-Famer passed away earlier in 2020, and as a result, for the first time ever, a number of items belonging to Moss are headed to auction.

The sale boasts ex-Moss-owned items such as the last race suit he ever competed in, a handful of race-used helmets, dozens of signed rally plates and photographs, and several watches gifted to Moss over the years. The most sought-after item slated to cross the auction block, however, is undeniably a bespoke gold Jaeger-LeCoultre watch famously owned and used by Stirling Moss for 38 years. Worn by Moss in more than 200 races, this solid gold watch was custom-designed for the racer in 1954 by his go-to jeweler, Schindler of London, and features his initials engraved into the clasp. This unique piece of motorsport history will be available at Silverstone Auctions’ upcoming “The Sir Stirling Moss OBE Collection” sale.
