London International Watch Fair to take place Nov 13
LONDON, August 3, 2011 – The first so-called “London International Watch Fair”, a selling event which will bring together watches aficionados and dealers, will take place on November 13, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m..
Samuel Olsson, organiser of London International Watch Fair
The event, to be located on Berkeley Square in central London, will be an opportunity for contemporary collectable watches as well as more established brands to be presented to collectors, organiser Samuel Olsson told Jewellery Outlook.
A preview for selected dealers, collectors and media will take place at the venue on the evening of November 12.
“The common thread is that the watches will be collectable,” Olsson said.
“We hope to put together the best of collectable horology today. We want to offer watch aficionados the opportunity to buy a little bit of ‘time history’ and promote the investment in time as a commodity.”
Price points are expected to range from some 2,000 pounds upwards.
Vintage Rolexes, Pateks and Vacherons are expected to be on show.
