All our sales now take place using Internet bidding. Internet bidding is immensely popular with our customers, allowing people to bid from wherever they are when the lot they desire is under the hammer. One of our highest-priced watches went to a man taking a break from playing golf! 

We are delighted to accept telephone and commission bids, subject to terms and conditions.


Please be aware that there is a buyer’s premium of 23.5% plus VAT – total 28.2% – Please check the sale for the latest updates.

Example for Commission Bidding:

Hammer Price £100
Premium @ 23.5% = £23.50
VAT on premium (20% of £23.50) = £4.70
Total buyer’s premium = £28.20
Total price £128.20

(Buyer’s premium on automobiles is 12.5% plus VAT – total 15%)

Note: There is a 3% (plus VAT) internet surcharge – total of 3.6% for internet bidding, on top of the buyer’s premium.
