Dials are only believed to be original if stated in the condition report. We do not speculate on the originality of hands, nor the originality of the luminous material on the dials & hands, nor the originality of polishing to cases.
All descriptions and condition reports are solely our own opinion. If a lot cannot be viewed in person then additional images will be provided on request. Bidders should therefore satisfy themselves on condition & originality prior to bidding.
The Art Loss Register is the world’s largest private database of lost and stolen art, antiques, watches and collectables. The ALR provides Watches of Knightsbridge with a due diligence service for every catalogue. This involves searching all items with an upper estimate value of £1,000 and above against its watch database (www.thewatchregister.com) to determine whether any item has been reported stolen or subject to claim.
We do not automatically charge the card registered online (unless payment has not been made within 2 weeks of the auction date), therefore successful bidders must settle invoices via the following methods:
Debit or credit card - This can be done at our premises during/post auction or online through the Payment section of our website. We do not take card payments over the telephone. We accept Mastercard, Visa & AMEX (There is no surcharge for card payments).
Bank transfer - If transferring from a foreign currency, the amount we receive must be the total due in pounds sterling (after currency conversion and the deduction of any bank charges).
Sterling cash - We accept cash payments up to £8,000.
Sterling cheque - Made payable to ‘Watches of Knightsbridge Ltd.’. It will be necessary to allow at least six working days for the cheque to clear before collecting or shipping your purchases.
