Bonhams brings 18th century pocketwatches and modern day bestsellers together in February auction


Bonhams Knightsbridge holds the first of its Watches and Wristwatches auctions on February 19, and has curated a broad mix of historic and vintage pieces that collectors looking for uncommon pieces at affordable prices will enjoy.

The sale is already accepting online bids ahead of the saleroom auction for lots ranging from 18th century pocket watches to modern vintage pieces from the past 50 years made by today’s blockbuster brands.

The beauty of Bonhams Knightsbridge sales is that they offer a large range of pieces at the more affordable end of the scale than the auctioneer brings together for its Bond Street events.
