Watch out at Barbara Tipple

Barbara and David are introducing fine vintage watches to their beautiful shop in Marmion Road.’We plan to showcase the watches and discuss their fascinating history several times over the next 12 months’ explained Barbara.

Alan and Sue Poultney will be presenting these evenings. They have been dealing in fine vintage watches for many years. Their main inventory includes PatelPhilippe, Rolex, Vacheron Constantin, Jaeger le Coultre & Heuer, other manufacturers are also available on request.

Alan and Sue tend to specialise in pre 1979 watches as, in their opinion, they are much better crafted, although of course there are some honourable exceptions. In addition, fewer watches were produced, creating a scarcity factor and most of the watch manufacturers were independent rather than being part of a larger parent company, as is very much the case nowadays.

‘Watches are as personal as any item of jewellery, some people like rectangles some prefer rounds, others only like certain brands. As with most items, you should buy what you like, what you can afford, from people you trust’ said Barbara.

Alan and Sue will provide specific information about each of the watches on display. There will be no obligation to buy, but should you wish to purchase a particular time piece, either at the time, or at a later date Alan will be happy to discuss this with you.

All of the watches come with warranties, each of them professionally serviced and, in some cases, lovingly & sympathetically restored.

There will be limited spaces to these events, please call if you are interested in booking a place
