Birmingham auctioneers releases online catalogue for latest antique watches sale

The online catalogue for the latest wrist and pocket watches sale from a Birmingham UK auctioneer has been released.

Fellows & Sons has 472 items for sale in Birmingham, UK, on Monday 22nd October 2007.

It puts on four similar sales a year and has seen the interest from buyers across the globe rocket, since putting all items online.

The 131 year old business also accepts bids for its modern and antique watches online, and even provides a live audio feed so buyers can keep track of what’s happening.

Managing partner Stephen Whittaker said: "The internet is becoming a key part of our business, and it makes sense when you look at the items we are selling."

"We attract a lot of high level items such as Rolex, Breitling and Omega watches. There is a huge market for these in the UK, and an even bigger one with collectors across the world."

Some of the items for sale include:

A lady’s 18 carat gold manual wind wristwatch with an integral bracelet, diamond bezel and gold coloured batons and hands.

The watch has a 17 jewel movement signed Beuche Girod.

And it’s valued at £700 to £1,000.

A gentleman’s 9 carat gold two piece cushion cased manual wrist watch from 1947.

It is hallmarked Birmingham and comes complete with the original box and invoice.

The watch is expected to sell for £120 to £180.

A gentleman’s 1940s Longines 9 carat gold manual wind wrist watch.

It has a 17 jewel movement and is fitted to a 9 carat gold link bracelet with locking clasp.

Fellows’ experts have valued it at £150 to £200.

Fellows & Sons does its sales in modern auction rooms in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.

Thanks to a heavy investment in internet technology, anyone across the world can listen to a live audio feed of auctions, and make live bids.
