To date, we have sold close to 2000 pocket watches for the family. There are 4 remaining auctions [for this Estate] to take place the 1st Wednesday of the month through May 5, 2021.

DO THEY RUN?
Each of the watches are in working order, unless it is stated “does not run” in the Lot Description. Please refer to the Lot Description for additional watch information and notes regarding working condition or remarks. All watches are sold as-is. We do the best we can to provide you enough information to make a confident bid. We use pocketwatchdatabase.com for some information.

Lots are sorted by Size (smallest to largest), then Manufacturer, then Serial Number. Total by Size: (1) 0s, (2) 6s, (12) 12s, (1) 14s, (11) 16s, and (13) 18s. Total by Jewel Count: (4) 7J, (2) 11J, (1) 15J, (1) 16J, (18) 17J, (5) 19J, (6) 21J and (5) unknown.

There is a 10% Buyers Premium added to the final bid. There is no credit card surcharge.

For those without internet or the means to bid online, we do allow a “floor bid” to be placed through our office (instead of bidding online). It is suggested you inspect the watches before leaving us a bid.

Please read the terms & conditions for additional bidding information found on the bidding platform richardaolson.hibid.com. See terms regarding shipping. We bubble-wrap and ship USPS Priority Mail with insurance and tracking numbers.
