Our specialist Watch department is always looking for good quality items for our Wrist Watch & Pocket Watch auctions held throughout the year.
Fine and rare pocket watches or wristwatches are what we like to see. We are always interested in the prestigious, classic makers such as Omega, Rolex, Tag Heuer, Patek Philippe & Jaeger Le-Coultre, although our scope doesn't stop there; it spans far and wide so that we include watches to suit every personal taste.
Pocket watches that prove popular tend to be the earlier watches (Georgian, Victorian and early continental) such as verge fusee watches and watches from the reputed watchmakers. Gold watches are always good sellers especially with current gold prices.
Our wristwatch section of the auction continues to achieve fantastic prices as demand for quality watches remains high. By offering live bidding via www.the-saleroom.com for our watch auction, we are able to attract international buyers and buyers from further afield in the UK who have the opportunity to purchases watches from the comfort of their own home. We are happy to provide condition reports on watches and we will endeavour to provide a response within 2 working days.
Brands of watches which are proving very popular include:
- Omega, Tag Heuer, Patek Philippe
- Jaeger Le-Coultre, Rolex, Hamilton
- IWC, Breitling, Longines
- Bulgari, Piaget, Cartier
- Vacheron Constantin, Rado, Maurice Lacroix
- Movado, Perregaux, Oris
- Bulova, Panerai, Raymond Weil, Seiko
If you are looking to sell an individual watch or a collection of watches, we can provide a no obligation auction appraisal. Please e-mail us the details of your watch and we will come back to you with a valuation. Following the appraisal if you would like to place your watch into auction then we can possibly arrange collection or you can have the watch sent through to us.
Please note that although we can provide condition reports for watches, we cannot guarantee the accuracy or reliability of movements. We encourage all buyers to try and view watches on the auction viewing days where possible as we cannot accept returns on watches (except for reasons specified in our terms).
We recently sold a collection of over 100 wrist and pocket watches for a collector who had bought these over the last 20 years. We realised a total in excess of £20,000 for the vendor, who was exceptionally pleased with the service that we provided, from collecting the items in person from his house in Yorkshire, to the swift payment by bank transfer shortly after the sale.
