Watches you may be looking for? 

It may be that you are looking for that special model of Rolex which is not listed on our website, and not all of our watches and products are listed on the website as these are at our holding bank. Please contact us by email or call and let us know what you are looking for with a budget figure and we will aim to help you. We have a vast network of contacts that allow us to source most Rolex models both modern and vintage if we do not have what you are looking for.


We can also showcase your watch for sale on our site at an agreed commission rate. All you need to do is send us the watch details; once these have been received we will contact you and arrange for either collection or delivery by an approved method. Once we receive the watch we will clean and photograph and detail the specifications ready for sale. Of course we will have agreed a sale price, less commission.  

If you are thinking of any of the options listed above, we request that you email us or call us to arrange the relevant forms for either of the options listed, as to ensure you are aware of our policy, terms and conditions.

Please be aware we can only sell authentic watches that are owned by the seller and therefore require proof of the seller’s details.
