You might be looking at your watches wondering just how long it’ll be until spring time will be upon us. Well there are two official beginnings for spring; the astronomical and meteorological.

Have you ever given someone a watch as a present? Perhaps you chose a timepiece for a loved one, a family member, or your children. Have you ever thought past the initial notion that it’s a nice gift that will be received well and questioned what it means to different people to be given a watch, whether it’s antique pocket watches, vintage wrist watches, or a ‘my first watch’ style movement?
As sellers of fine antique pocket watches for sale, UK antiques dealers, Pieces of Time, like to keep a keen eye on other elements of the antique industry, with great appreciation it has to be said. And as such we would like to offer our congratulations to the new Society of Fine Art Auctioneers & Valuers (SOFAA) recently appointed chairman, Mr Clive Stewart-Lockhart.
