Sell fine, luxury, vintage watches with us

At RR Auction, we are recognizing that watch sales at auction are trending as one of the highest-grossing growth items in the collectibles world. We’re excited to apply our expertise to selling this category, and invite your consignments to our fresh venue. When you sell fine, luxury, vintage watches with RR, you get in front of our international audience of elite buyers and collectors.

Timepieces have shot to the top of the “must-watch” list of auction categories, with several high-profile sales in the last several years. Whether it’s a wristwatch worn in the past by a celebrity (famous or infamous), a notorious gangster, the leader of a nation, or the trailblazers of space exploration, RR Auction achieves record prices and international press attention.


Cross-category appeal

It’s not just collectors of fine, luxury, vintage watches and jewelry that are fascinated by these high-ticket-item offerings. RR Auction has seen firsthand how watch sales at auction cross categories.

We’ve had remarkable success selling watches owned by astronauts to our Space collectors. Moonwalker Dave Scott’s flight-worn Bulova wristwatch (shown above – complete with scratched face and dirt/debris from its time on the lunar surface!) sold at auction for $1.625 million – at the time, it was the most expensive American Space artifact ever sold at auction.

In 2017, two of our Space Top 10 items were watches: Alan Shepard’s Apollo 14 Vacheron Constantin watch achieved a price of more than $81,000. We also sold cosmonaut Gennady Padalka’s flown Omega Speedmaster Pro for nearly $40,000.
