A Rolex watch that sold at Richard Winterton Auctioneers

The latest auction on 30th November saw more than 1,000 lots go under the hammer, including a Rolex watch that fetched £6,000.

Auctioneer Richard Winterton said:

“As well as being our biggest-ever one day sale, our November records and the average price per lot in a single day sale were both smashed.

“We are delighted that all our measures and adapted ways of working are working so well for our clients.”
