Bonhams encourages customers to bag vintage watch bargains at its May 21 sale

Bonhams May

Bonhams will hold its next Watches and Wristwatches Sale at its Knightsbridge sale room on Tuesday, May 21.

Customers can also register online to place bids.

Watches and Wristwatches sales have more affordable pieces than the major auctions Bonhams holds at its Bond Street premises, and are pitched as an ideal entry point for people feeling their way into buying pre-owned watches.
