Mark Knopfler is a guitar virtuoso and legendary lyricist. He was a founder of the rock band Dire Straits. He also happens to like watches. Two of his personal timepieces were auctioned off for charity recently. He usually wears a Omega Speedmaster we have seen him from time to time wearing a different watch. We noted a pretty cool vintage piece on his wrist recently.
Mr Knopfler was at a charity motorcycle event The Big Bike Charity Hike, with his good friend John Illsley, who was the bass player for Dire Straits. What caught our attention was the timepiece on the wrist of Knopfler. He was wearing a vintage Heuer Autavia “Siffert” Chronograph on mesh bracelet.
