Are You A Magpie? Welcome To The Wonderful World Of Watch Collecting
Collecting watches can become an obsession. The interest in collecting has coincided with the huge gain in popularity of the pre-owned/vintage watch sector.
We met George Bamford, Founder of the Bamford Watch Department, at one of London’s finest private members club, The Devonshire, to hear his expert views on collecting. George describes himself as a ‘Magpie’ collector of vintage watches.
He has a passion for watches connected with racing and is drawn to the different colours of dials of watches from the 60s and 70s, and believes this to be the ‘sweet spot’ for vintage watch collecting.
It was a hugely enjoyable evening with lively discussion in front of a ‘sell out’ audience of esteemed collectors. Refreshments were kindly provided by our partners at Ginking London.
