ROLEX JACKPOT AT AUCTION
The first auction of the new decade proved to be Hannam’s Auctioneers greatest, with nearly 3,200 items being auctioned off over three days and fantastic results in all categories. With bidders in the room, 6918 approved registered bidders online, and 81 telephone bidders, there was plenty of competition and excitement in the Selborne auction room.
Two privately consigned Rolex’s from an estate near Ropley gained a lot of interest ever since the auction was posted online in December, with collectors coming to the saleroom to bid on the two pieces in person. The 1950’s GMT Master ‘Pepsi dial’ wristwatch sold in the room for £11,000, whilst the 18ct Oyster Datejust wristwatch sold to a separate bidder in the room for £5,500.
Another clock, also locally consigned from a collector, was a beautiful Viennese silver and enamel four-sided clock. It was purchased via a European telephone bidder for £13,500, who will be flying over for Hannam’s next three-day auction in February, as more clocks from the private collection will be consigned.
With strong sales in the clocks and wristwatches at Hannam’s in the last twelve months, we recommend the free valuation service offered, and also the 0% sellers commission for all wristwatches consigned for Hannams specialist one day monthly auctions.
Hannam’s can also assist by providing a comprehensive professional probate valuation of an estate. They can take the worry out of your hands by helping you value an estate and settle the affairs. Their valuers will provide a professional researched detailed report following an appointment to attend the estate. Some insurers may require or recommend that you have a professional valuation document to support any claims for an item, should something unexpected happen and Hannam’s Auctioneers can offer these insurance valuations. Alternatively, you may wish for a formal valuation of items in your home to ensure you apply the correct insurance policy via the right provider.
Throughout the year Hannam’s will be hosting one-day auctions in between their three-day monthly auctions. These will be available to view the day before and the morning of the sale, and as always, online. The next auctions shall be a one-day auction on 5th February, followed by a three-day auction on the 24th, 25th & 26th February. For free valuations and consignment entries please visit their Selborne saleroom, or for further information please visit the website www.hannamsauctioneers.com or call the office on 01420511788.
