Sell Your Watch 

Watches are sold in our Select Watches auctions that take place in London gallery and along with jewellery at our prestigious Edinburgh salerooms. These two focused categories allow us to place your timepieces into the auction context that will be the most profitable for you as a vendor.

Watches are marketed alongside other sales including contemporary art, whisky and, of course, jewellery, ensuring maximum exposure for all. Our watch collections are amongst the most well-travelled of the goods we sell – we have in the past viewed collections in New York, Philadelphia, Hong Kong and throughout the UK including London, Edinburgh and Glasgow - maximising viewers and competition.


Watch Auctions Online 

Our online bidding platform ensures maximum bidding participation creating an active international audience of buyers willing to pay the best prices. Our Covid 19-safe, appointment-based, in-person viewing system also allows those clients wishing to see watches in person to do so, in both Edinburgh and London. In consigning your watch to one of our auctions, you can be confident that it will reach its full financial potential.
