Retaining an interest in the world-famous second-hand bazaar, Portobello Market, Notting Hill, the Sutton Family are now the preeminent pre-owned watch dealers, with an auction house to boot in Knightsbridge.
The family’s flair for trading objets d’art started over 50 years ago at No. 91 Portobello Road, the antiques shop owned by Morris Sutton. His son, and co-founder of Watches of Knightsbridge Simon Sutton initially pursued a career as a professional downhill skier, but soon followed his father into the antiques trade. However, it was Simon’s passion for rare timepieces, that in his 20s led to him branching out as a watch dealer. And his son, Toby shares the same enthusiasm for vintage watches, together founding Watches of Knightsbridge in 2011.
