Founded in 1867, Fellows, headquartered in Birmingham, is one of the UK’s most established auction houses. But it was only this week that they introduced the first of their monthly Swiss replica watches sales. The Watch Sale was officially launched on April 20 and enjoyed an exceptional 93% sale rate.
Until this week, Fellows held a specialist wristwatch sale and a specialist pocket watch sale only on a quarterly basis. Now these two auctions have been joined together to become known as The Watch Sale.
Fellows see this new monthly auction as a means by which to cement their position as a major force in the UK watch market with strong sales together with the opportunity to hold more specialist watch sales than any other auctioneer.
The first of our Watch Sales launched with an excellent Hammer total of just under 380,000 significantly above the estimate for the auction. This proves that with clear cataloguing, sensible estimates, detailed descriptions and high quality images each monthly Watch Sale is on track to be a huge success. Stephen Whittaker, Managing Director, Fellows
