Buyers and sellers of collectable watches in San Diego will be interested to hear that Antiquorum (the world’s premier watch auctioneer) has opened a Los Angeles office due to an expanded clientele on the West Coast, reports National Jeweler Magazine. The new office is located at 468 N. Camden Dr. in Beverly Hills, and adds to a U.S. presence that already includes headquarters in New York City. Clients will be able to inquire about auction estimates for their watches, consign to upcoming auctions, and ask for advice on timepieces.

Charles Tearle will run the Los Angeles office. Tearle is a veteran of the watch industry and specializes in wristwatches from the 1920s to the 1970s. He recently joined Antiquorum as director and watch expert with a particular interest in Patek Philippe, Cartier, and Rolex sport watches.

Tearle began his distinguished career in horology at Somlo Antiques (a prestigious vintage watch store based in London). He became a watch specialist at Bonhams London in 2004, and two years later was asked to open a watch department for Bonhams in the United States. He is a regular guest on the television series Antiques Roadshow.

About Antiquorum

Antiquorum recently celebrated its 30-year anniversary, after having successfully carved its own unparalleled niche in the auction world. Established in Geneva in 1974, the company has cultivated a thriving collector’s market for timepieces worldwide. In 1994 it added its New York affiliate Antiquorum USA, and since then has continually realized the most impressive world records for sales of watches, clocks, wristwatches, regulators, and marine chronometers at auction.
