TWO watches are set to sell for up to a combined £10,000 when they go up for auction in Dorset next month.

Charterhouse in Sherborne will auction a 1960s Omega Seasmaster and a 1990s Rolex Submariner on February 4.

The Omega was found by the auctioneers in its leather box whilst clearing a Dorset cottage and is estimated at £2,000-3,000.

The Rolex Submariner is also a stainless steel watch. It not only has its original box, but also its tags and outer boxes and is estimated at £4,000-6,000.

"The market for watches, silver and jewellery remains strong at auction. With our auctions continuing ,online buyers can see exactly what they are bidding on. This combined with multiple images and plenty of demand results in high prices despite the national lockdown" said Charterhouse's Richard Bromell.

Charterhouse is accepting late entries for the online auction of watches, silver and jewellery on Thursday February 4 and wine, port and whisky the following day.
