If you live anywhere between Devon and London ( a route I often travel for work purposes) and you have a vintage watch you want to sell then simply go to our valuation page.

Send us some decent pictures and a description and we can give you a same day valuation.

If you prefer you can simply send me some images by text or Whattsapp on 07768316371 and I can get straight back to you.

Any valuation will be subject to seeing the vintage watch you want to sell but the valuation rarely changes once the watch has been inspected.

The whole inspection process takes no more than 10/15 minutes and you can be paid by bank transfer , cash or Paypal.

It really is as simple as that and a process we have carried out almost a thousand times since 2015.

Watch memorabilia and old stock can also be of interest including old shop window displays . In fact anything connected to vintage watches is of interest.

Here at Watches Of Westminster we will travel far and wide to buy the right watch whether vintage or modern even if it needs a service is a non runner.

We like bringing old watches back to life and giving new watches a good home and work seven days a week giving customers fast valuations from just a few pictures. Www are happy to travel to Hertfordshire and beyond to buy and sell the right watch and can arrange a suitable time outside of normal working hours to suit our customers needs.

If you are too far away we also provide a free postal service and can send you a postal pack so you don’t have the hassle of having to find the right packaging etc for the watch.

We can pay cash or bank transfer for your watch and don’t forget we also love a Part Exchange so if you have seen a watch on our website you like and want to exchange your watch ( running or not ) we can give you a price ( either way ) to change and deliver the watch to you .

Most other watch buyers have a long and complicated buying process and won’t travel to you. We are the exact opposite and have bought many watches from people simply not willing to go through the long drawn out process.

Heres a selection of some watches we have bought recently.

Heres another interesting find just in all the way from Greece a Heuer 3648S with a rare red numbered telemetre ring. The watch is running but is off for a much needed service tonight. It arrived with one of those little loved expanding bracelets which has now been changed but I’ve kept it as in 20 years time Im sure everyone will be saying ” couldn’t give them away “!!

 

The watch has certainly seen plenty of use and there is some discolouration to the dial and a light scratch but to many and myself a vintage watch is always more wearable and interesting with “weathering” after all who buys antiques that look brand new.

Keep an eye on the web site , it may be up for sale at some point in the future !

The old adage of buying the best you can really does apply and unless you have a good idea of what you are doing its best to buy from a High St store or a well known seller who has their reputation to look after.

To make it more interesting why not buy yourself a birthdate watch , they are available from 1957 ( very very expensive ) up to present day. Why not buy a new model to mark the birth of your son or daughter. It will be a daily reminder of that joyous moment in time.

The Bovet watch name is not so well known to some watch buyers but the company has a long and prestigious history starting in 1822 but its founder Edouard Bovet ( 1797 to1849 ) was in fact the son of a watchmaker and he went to London to study watchmaking ( don’t forget England was the centre of watchmaking ( a long story for another blog )) and he started the Bovet watch company in 1822 seemingly to capitalise on the export market to China ( how things change ).

As ever the Chinese market dived ( 1855 ) partly due to counterfeits ( just shows theres nothing new in watches !)  the company  was purchased in 1888.

The following is an extract from Wikepedia

In 1901, the Bovet trademark was sold at auction in Paris to Cesar and Charles Leuba, sons of Ami Leuba.[7] Jacques Ullmann and Co., another successful production of watches for the Chinese market, purchased the Bovet brand in 1918. After Jacques Ullmann went out of business in 1932, the Bovet name was bought by Albert and Jean Bovet ( some family connection ?) , who were successful watch makers and registered several patents for chronographs, such as the mono rattrapante—a device that would pause the second hand for a reading while the mechanism continued to run.[7] The company Favre-Leuba purchased the name and manufacturing facilities from the Bovet brothers in 1948.[7]

This therefore leads us to this really attractive watch we have recently purchased  which as 34 mm is a pleasant size on the wrist and one of the prettiest chronographs I have seen for some time.

We would love to buy more Covets so if you have one please let us know.

If your interested in this watch here is our advert for it.

Just in at Watches Of Westminster is this fantastic Omega Speedmaster Rattrapante 354050 Limited Edition with the superb black dial.

This is a rare Omega Speedmaster and was more expensive than the standard Omega Speedmaster model back in 1998 and differed to the X-33 in that it had 3 pushers. It was available with a leather strap or stainless as shown above.

At the time, this Omega Speedmaster was  futuristic looking watch with a carbon fibre dial and 3 rounded off rectangular pushers. One  pusher was to  start/stop the timing, the second to reset the chronograph hands and the third at 10 o’clock position would operate the split-seconds function

The heart of the watch ( the movement ) is a Omega Cal 3600 which is  based on the ETA / Valjoux 7750 movement but modified to become the split second chronograph that it is today. IWC did a very similar thing for their Double Chrono Fleiger.

Here is our page for the model we are selling

All Speedmasters are great but this model has a unique appeal and will certainly become a collectors piece in the future as has the the 125 and X-33 , its just a matter of time.
Given the good value they are at the moment ( ensure you go for original boxes and papers ) its a much better buy than any new watch and will always be a interesting timepiece whether on your wrist or in your collection.
If you have any model of Speedmaster  and want to sell it please contact us at Watches Of Westminster and we will give you a fast response.
We make the process of buying and selling as simple as possible and specialise in either coming to you or using the great UK postal system.
We also buy and sell abroad and will always consider a part exchange.
