Trading safely on

Ebay since 2003

Thank you for looking. Before we go any further we would like to make it absolutely clear that we have a fabulous and well established business here and we are not desperate to sell, nor are we interested in any silly offers that would suggest that we are. We are regular people who are considering early retirement and possible new life abroad, that is all.

At this stage we are merely dipping our toe in the water and should the right buyer come along then so be it. If not then we shall happily continue in business as we have done for years. We invite viewing and SENSIBLE OFFERS from serious business people with the genuine means to own such a business...

We are extremely proud of what we have achieved over the years, our reputation and our standing within the industry.

The business is based in East Grinstead, West Sussex which is situated mid-way between Brighton and London. Our business (Items of Beauty, East Grinstead Watch Company Ltd) is totally independent.

We have been in the fine watch and jewellery business since 1975. For the last ten years our business has been mainly online (hugely established company website) and we also sell here on Ebay (Please review our feedback) and more recently a High Street shop to compliment our online sales.

The move into the High Street was made with a long term view so that we could offer any potential purchaser of our business something more tangible than just an online presence, albeit a hugely successful one.

The business is thriving and takings up virtually every month. We have a very high Google ranking and we are very well known and highly regarded within the Watch and Jewellery industry.

The business is totally DEBT FREE and all of the stock belongs to us and there are no third party financial interests.

The basics:

  • Two hugely successful websites, one very well established with more than 2,500 unique high quality visitors daily.
  • A beautifully decorated and nicely situated High Street shop (rent currently £7,000 PA) paid until August 2012. (Lease is yearly rolling to suite the tenant, landlord is amazingly friendly or longer term easily negotiated).
  • Rates around £1200 PA and paid in full until August 2012.
  • Mailing list of quality, proven clients.
  • Fully Air Conditioned shop and environment
  • High end decor, that includes top-end security features and complete shop set up.
  • Basement with on-site watchmaker for repairs etc. (Watchmaker is self employed and generates his own income whilst adding to yours) and is a former Breitling Service Manager.
  • In situ staff capable of running the store if you want to be a sleeping owner.
  • All Debit & Credit card facilities in place. Company and VAT registration, etc.
  • Credit facilities (new feature that should increase business by at least 20%) Consumer Credit Licence in place. No need to apply, ready to go...
  • All goodwill and required trade suppliers / contacts to ensure continuity.
  • Free car parking for owner.
  • £50,000 alone recently spent on decor.
  • We buy in gold, antiquities, watches etc.
  • Takings and financial details supplied only to those that show a genuine interest but we guarantee that you will be impressed. The figures are based on our rather modest opening hours of Mon-Fri 10am-4pm and Saturdays 10am-5pm.
  • If you are a keen watch enthusiast and have always wanted your own business, here is the chance to acquire a ready made and highly proven establishment which is risk free.

The Sale:

The sale price advertised is for our entire business (excluding stock) Shop fully kitted out and ready to go, fixtures and fittings, along with our company website and all other internet sales points.

The Stock:

We carry a large range of used Rolex watches, Jewellery and other antiquities, but the core of our business is quality used Swiss watches with a fast turnover. 

There is no need to worry about stocking the shop. Our suppliers are regular and reliable and we have dealt with most of them for more than 20 years. All trade contacts will be introduced and relationships honoured with continuity.

We are very honest and reasonable people and are happy to listen to ideas and proposals.

If we have missed anything then please just ask. We are VAT registered  and a UK registered Company.

Experience in the industry will be a distinct advantage but is not absolutely necessary as our staff are fully trained and can run the shop & online businesses without your daily input.

This business is perfect if you want either a hands on, or, a hands off situation...

Experience within the retail industry is important, and a knowledge of how to use the Internet is a must.

We are not interested in selling our business to anyone that might destroy years of hard work or our carefully guarded reputation. Any enquiries should be from those with genuine entrepreneurial skills.

A message from the Items of Beauty Proprietor


A keen watch enthusiast myself, I sold my first Rolex way back in 1975. I spend much of my time travelling around the UK and Europe to source and carefully select the watches that I’ve been successfully selling here on eBay since 2003 and I use every bit of my 30+ years of experience when doing so.


I honestly feel that I know exactly what my customers want for their money because I’m very careful when it comes to spending my own hard earned cash.


Remember that before you invest in one of my watches, I’ve already invested my own money into it – which says a lot for any watch because I am known within the trade as a very fussy buyer indeed.


I’m fully aware that any potential customer will look around to compare condition and prices but I am confident that you will come to the conclusion that my watches are quite easily the best value for money that you’ll find anywhere on ebay.


My philosophy has always been "customer service and quality goods means your customer returns" and this has worked very well for me now for many years. Many of my clients are regulars who return again and again.


I always remember one particular positive feedback that I received a couple of years ago that simply read “This seller really does try to please” – and I hope that sums up my business perfectly as I continue to strive to supply beautiful quality Rolex watches at sensible and affordable prices.


Many people are naturally dubious about spending a large amount of money on eBay for something that they haven’t actually seen in person. This is quite understandable of course, but I offer a no quibble seven day money back guarantee with everything that I sell ensuring that my customers can buy in the knowledge that their money is 100% safe.


When you choose to deal with me you are dealing with a consummate professional who prides himself on giving his clients the very best on-going customer service.


I thank you for your time and I look forward to serving you soon.
