For many years I have enjoyed collecting Fine Swiss Watches and Vertu. Through forging friendships with fellow collectors and buying I have developed a great deal of experience and knowledge. With this in mind I hope to make this accessible to everyone online. Indeed this is the reason for developing the Gentleman Watch Collector – a Public domain for guiding would-be and existing Collectors of Fine Luxury Items. I feature many photos of mine, useful data in my Blog and Servicing/Polishing/Restoration Guidelines for no cost.

As a Private Collector I also offer a function to Purchase outright your Fine Watches, Jewellery and Vertu at top CASH prices in a Safe, Fast and Assured transaction at a time to suit you. I have offered this for many years and welcome you to peruse my Website, Testimonials page and Social Media pages by way of research. I also sponsor a Racing Team.

When I found myself wanting to sell I was insulted by aggressive dealers who insisted on offering one price when enquiring but upon them receiving my item(s) or me visiting their stores they would cut their figure considerably. Statistically a seller will accept the lower price when at the Dealer’s Store or when the Dealer has received the item in the post.

Poor Customer Service, harsh buying practices and delayed payment by cheque or bank transfer were sadly regular experiences too. Those who have dealt with the major Online Buying Services will be able to vouch for this account.

I explored selling items Privately through classifieds and online Auctions. However I found especially with High Value Items it is incredibly common for people posing as genuine buyers actually planning to deceive sellers in a multitude of ways. On some platforms like eBay for instance one must offer Paypal as a payment method rather than cash or bank transfer creating huge liability for the seller (just Google for thousands of such examples).

With all of these experiences in mind I decided to start the Gentleman Watch Collector a Reliable, Safe and Pleasant experience offering excellent Instant Cash sales to Genuine Sellers of High Quality Genuine Rolex, Bvlgari, Breitling, Chopard, Cartier, Audemars Piguet and Vertu items.

If you have an original example of any Modern and Vintage Rolex, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet & Cartier watch/item of jewellery or Vertu phone that you are looking to SELL or simply require a valuation for, please either complete the relevant form or email gent@gentlemanwatchcollector.co.uk

I am a major buyer of Modern and Vintage Rolex, Patek Philippe, Breitling, Audemars Piguet & Cartier watches, jewellery and Vertu. I pay the best prices and am not a broker but an outright buyer. I treat each purchase as a relationship that will span years.

Whilst I do spend some money on advertising campaigns in the best Publications in the UK the chosen method for publicity remains word of mouth and industry recommendation. I also have an exemplary reputation with many active and established users on Watch Collecting Forums worldwide.
