‘Having the time of your life’ | Money Week


Watches are some of the most personal objects we ever own. We set our lives by them. Every watch has a story and that story is as important as who made it, when and how. Collectors want to know who wore it, when and why. No two watches are ever the same – that’s what makes them so appealing to collectors.

And the auction scene has never been more dynamic. Seasoned collectors and beginners alike can view and bid on a wide range of items including vintage timepieces online at thesaleroom.com.

In this week’s Money Week magazine we give our views on the top timepieces selling at auction, and the best auctions coming up:

10 February: Fellows – The Watch Sale
18 February: Bonhams – Watches and Wristwatches
19 February: Gardiner Houlgate – The Watch Auction
