Are you ready to Invest in the Future and Recycle the Past ?

Every item that we use and then throw away has a footprint on the planet.  

Here at Boldon Auction Galleries we can see that buying at Auction - second, third, fourth hand and more is one of the solutions to help create a huge positive impact on our environment and go a long way to saving the planet.

The motto we use time and again is "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" and whilst reducing the amount of pollution produced from new items and diverting them away from landfill you are saving a lot of money at the same time by buying items at Auction.

Sounds good?

Have a look at our next Auction to see for yourself and remember "One man's trash is another man's treasure".  

We look forward to welcoming you to our saleroom.

A Watch for War

A Gents Cyma W.W.W. ‘Dirty Dozen’ World War II Military Soldier’s Wrist Watch, inscribed on reverse W.W.W., P25591, 30591.      Estimate £150 - £250     For Auction 28th July 2021

The British Ministry of Supply for the Military commissioned 12 watch makers to manufacture a basic but carefully specified model wrist watch for members of the British Armed Forces.  Cyma produced 20,000 such historic time pieces.

These manufacturers (Buren, Cyma, Eterna, Grana, JLC, Lemania, Longines, IWC, Omega, Record, Timor and Vertex) later came to be known as ‘The Dirty Dozen’ in the mid 1960s, after the release of the popular war film of the same name. 

Each watch was commissioned and manufactured with similar specifications and, as military issues, were hard-wearing, highly legible and water-resistant with stainless steel or nickel plated cases, shatterproof crystal and fixed lug bars.
