Originating in the antiques quarter of Portobello Road over 50 years ago, this family business has grown and evolved to find its niche in the watch industry – specialising in fine modern and vintage timepieces, based in the heart of Knightsbridge.
Watches of Knightsbridge auctions are conducted in a traditional way by auctioneer Edward Rising, while running a dual live internet bidding service through the-saleroom.com and liveauctioneers.com. This provides a great auction platform for both buyers and sellers. WoK have a specialist knowledge and experience in the industry, spearheaded by expert and director Simon Sutton. The aim is to help collectors source timepieces, give advice on starting a collection and guidance to individuals looking to invest in watches. The Watches of Knightsbridge App features the full collection of current and archived auction catalogues. This is an important library of information for many types of watch lovers and collectors. The auction catalogues can be downloaded for offline viewing and are fully searchable, with pinch, tap and zoom control. The catalogues consist of a wide range of fine and rare timepieces, with detailed descriptions and professional photography.
The App is an important tool for serious watch collectors to be able to value their collections with current auction prices. Users can allow notifications of forthcoming auction dates and published catalogues to be sure that they are always kept up to date.
