NOTICE TO BIDDERS
First time bidders may be asked to supply a copy of ID before being approved to bid online.

This is an online only auction and is not part of our main auction taking place on the 20th September.

Every sale for this online only auction will be subject to a buyer’s premium of 25%+VAT (30% including VAT). This buyer’s premium includes the-saleroom.com commission.

VAT can be excluded on items shipped to outside of the EC.

All estimates are excluding buyer’s premium.

All descriptions and condition reports are solely our own opinion and made by our experts.

We aim to give buyers the most accurate information before purchase and pride ourselves off this. We only consign watches of a quality and standard that we are happy with.

PAYMENT METHODS

If we have not received payment for invoices within 5 days of the auction finishing (or at least be notified that payment or collection has been arranged) then we will charge the card registered on the-saleroom.com (plus any card handling fees as explained below). Therefore successful bidders must settle invoices via the following methods:

Streamline Debit and Credit card processing (chip & pin):
This can be done at our premises on collection. There is no additional charge for purchases made with Debit cards unless drawn on an overseas bank or deferred debit cards which will be subject to a 2.0% surcharge.

Please note there is also a 2.0% surcharge when payments are made using credit cards and a 1.9% surcharge for American Express. It may be advisable to notify your card provider of your intended purchase in advance to reduce delays caused by us having to seek authority when you come to pay.

Successful bidders will receive an email with their invoice on the Monday or Tuesday following the auction with our bank account details.

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 up to any amount (for amounts over £10,000 two forms of ID will be required).

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 of your purchases.

Watches of Knightsbridge will debit the card registered on the-saleroom.com if payment hasn’t been received or a settlement date has been agreed 21 days post auction (card handling fees will be charged if necessary). We will then hold the goods until the buyer has contacted us and have the right to request as much information before releasing the goods.

SHIPPING & COLLECTION

Please contact us for shipping quotes prior to bidding. Collection of items is preferred and we cannot guarantee that all items can be shipped.
