    Goodbye to an Speedmaster Ed White - suggestions?

    Folks,

    I was lucky enough to get an immaculate Ed White several years back before the madness started, with a great set of memorabilia to boot. But Iím mostly done with watches now, and this is just not getting worn. I donít fancy the whole selling on Sales Forum (or eBay) for something so valuable, and I was wondering if anyone could recommend a specialist I could sell it to?

    Cheers

    Dave

    Talk to the chaps at Fellows Auctions. I am looking to do something similar with some of my watches.

    For something like that I would also have a chat with Watches of Knightsbridge. They put together some very impressive catalogues and as a result seem to get good prices for clean watches, because their universally high standards seem to get high rollers bidding for the more approachable lots. I have not kept pace with them as people, but thy auctioned off a large proportion of an acquaintance's collection and the fees were quite reasonable (just looked it up, 15% of hammer price, inc of VAT).

    Would be interested to know what killed your interest in watches?

    Not the guy that bagged the one off watchuseek a few years ago for a bargain? Seem to remember a thread on here about an Ed white from there and it being bargain of the decade.

    Why not sell it privately? If it goes to auction and sells for £20k inc buyers premium (Iím not saying itís worth that just an example) you the seller will only see around 60% of that = £12k. It would be much better to sell here for £15k

    P.s. please can we have a photo

    That appears to be a very good price.

    Are you sure? The bracelet appears to be a 1125 so £300 odd instead of a couple of £k. Itís impossible to tell anything from the photos but the case looks good
