Clocks & Watches


Stamford Auction Rooms has regular specialist watch auctions that include modern as well as vintage watches. Our recent highlights include a rare Rolex Submariner wristwatch sold for £1,500 discovered during a house clearance in Oundle, Lincolnshire, a modern example by Vacheron Constantin which sold for £3,000, and an 18ct gold and diamond Cartier example reaching an impressive £6,000.

Well known watch makers tend to reach the higher hammer prices, such as Rolex,Cartier, Breitling , Hublot, Omega, Patek Philippe, Longines and many others, and our valuers advise that any original boxes, or paperwork help achieve higher results. Pocket watches from the 18th, 19th and 20th century are ever popular, as are silver and gold watches such as ladies cocktail watches.
