Fellows has their next watch auction lined up for 22nd June, with a varied range of classic watches on offer. We spotted a very nice Tudor Grantour auto, 42mm, black dial model by the way.
Interestingly, at the top end of the auction market Sotheby’s has reported that they’ve been taking over $1 million a week at their specialised luxury watch auctions. Some record prices have been set, but things may well be different at the lower end of the collector market, especially when the free furlough and business grant cash begins to run out in the UK.
