Halls' Watch Department is headed up by our full-time specialist Jack Austerberry, where he curates monthly auctions at our Battlefield saleroom in Shrewsbury. Jack has developed an extensive network of collectors worldwide, and aims to ensure that all watches are given maximum pre-sale exposure to potential bidders.
Renowned manufacturers, including Rolex, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Cartier and Breitling often grace the pages of our catalogues and always prove popular with buyers. If you prefer the more traditional, silver and gold pocket watches are regularly consigned for both our specialist and monthly auctions.
Our tri-annual watch auction attracts both trade and private buyers and atmosphere on the day is always buoyant. Hosting two weekday viewing events together with weekend opening hours prior to sale day we cater for all potential buyers. For our buyers' peace of mind all lots with an upper estimate value of £1,000 and above are searched against The Art Loss Register database. In addition to this, all auctions are active online, providing not only prospective purchasers from around the world the chance to bid, but also providing vendors with the assurance that their items are given the maximum exposure to the international market thus enabling Halls to achieve the most competitive prices.
