No, we are an independent, family-owned business which has been established since 1970. This allows us to carry the very best stock and leading brands without restrictions. It also allows us to be flexible and competitive to meet your needs. We carry stock which we are happy to take back in part exchange which is a major benefit.

All watches which are taken into stock are carefully examined and are serviced if required before being made available. All watches come with a minimum of 1 year full warranty. This is not include accidental damage or misuse.

When ordered with us (either on the phone or online prior to 3pm) your goods will be dispatched on the same day via our fully insured courier. This will mean in the vast majority of cases sent to a UK address, you will receive your order the next day. International customers should expect delivery to take longer and we can advise you on this for each specific country.

All watches are checked in-house and by fully accredited service centres and watch-makers. We offer a full guarantee of authenticity.

All watches are located at our Hull store where they can be viewed daily during regular store hours. If more convenient, we can have specific watches sent to our Mayfair branch for viewing (by appointment only) at a time to suit you including weekends.

Yes, in some cases, we would be happy to accept pre-owned jewellery as a part exchange. This is always subject to quality, brand, condition and value of the specific piece.

We are happy to consider a watch against a part exchange of our stock. However, we only consider buying watches we would be happy to sell ourselves and hence usually only the brands that we sell.

Delivery

Please note if you live outside of the UK you may also have to pay import duty or other taxes, fees or charges applied by customs or other authorities in the country of receipt. You must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the goods. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; we have no prior notice of  how much these charges will be.

If the date isn’t indicated on the Rolex Certificate or it is missing you may be able to date your watch with its serial number. It isn’t possible to date modern Rolex watches. Please see our guide for more information.

Often Panerai papers are undated by the Authorised Dealer when they originally sell but by using the serial numbers on the back of your watch it is possible to date your Panerai. See our Guide on Panerai serial numbers to find out how.
