Reach for the Stars! The Watches Auction, held 22nd March, offered a great mix of watches for all tastes, from Rolex to Omega, Casio to pocket watch. Lot 721, a gentleman’s diamond set Rolex was one of the stars of the evening. Following good interest during the view and a number of enquiries online, the lot was eventually sold at an impressive hammer price of £2400.

In keeping with the trend of the major brands selling well, lot 770, an eighteen carat gold gentleman’s Omega Constellation, received much interest, with telephone and internet bids battling it out. Eventually achieving a hammer price of above estimate of £1600. A current trend, noted also at the last Watches Auction also, is the increasing popularity of Albert chains and it shows no sign of stopping. Lot 777, a rose gold example, sold for an impressive £400
