When it comes to wristwatches, it's all in the name and the quality of the pieces, and here at Stamford Auction Rooms we recognise the importance this plays in achieving great results.

Our specialist sales attract bidders around the world, as well as the big names, and here are a few of the most recent results in 2024:



This stunning and very sleek Omega wristwatch would be a delight to wear, of classic and subtle design, it would grace the wrist of any wearer taking it to a final hammer price of £1,000, well over the £600-£900 estimate.

Rolex is always sought after for watch collectors, although some of the earlier examples have been known to languish a little compared to their more iconic cousins, leading to a very conservative estimate of just £80-£120 on this stuning vintage 9ct gold cased example, so it was wonderful to see it find its followers selling for a fabulous £700.



Piaget are recognised for their stunning design in watches and this striking example is a prime example, soaring well over its estimate of £500-£800 to sell for £1,000.



For those in the know, Audemars Piguet is a world leading watchmaker, for subtle, wearable and classic design with precision movements it is the watch of the discerning owner, so it was no suprise that this vintage 18ct gold cased example sold for £1,800.



When it comes to watches for the discerning woman of today, few makers come close to Cartier.  The classic design, and superb movement continues to appreciate in value, and this wonderful example attracted bids from across the world leading to a final hammer price of £5,500 in today's sale.

If timekeeping is your thing, then the exquisite collection of clocks that were the finale of the sale today, was not to be missed including this rare and stunning William IV Viner & Co gilt bronze carriage time-piece.  With fierce bidding on commission, the internet and the telephone, it was a telephone bidder who finally secured this beautiful example for £4,400. 

Following quickly on its heels, the very next lot a fine 19th century Barrauds of Cornhill, London bracket clock also attracted bids from across the net on all three platforms and commission before finally selling to a different telephone bidder for £2,400.
