The auction house boasts many exciting sales in the past few months, including an in-house record for watches being broken following the sale of a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss for a total price of £139 400 (including buyer's premium) in November 2017. Then in December of the same year a Fancy Intense Yellow Diamond Ring by Graff Diamonds for £1 307 600 (including buyer's premium). The sale of the Graff ring was the top price in the UK for a regional auction house in 2017 and the first seven-figure bid from a regional saleroom since 2012.

In November 2017, Professional Jeweller analysed auction houses’ reach based on their UK ranking. They placed Fellows at fifth place in the UK, with a stronger reach than every other regional auction house and with more popular social media accounts than some of the national, London-based auctioneers.

Stephen Whittaker, managing director at Fellows Auctioneers, has responded to the recent successes of the company. He said: ''The past twelve months have been fantastic for Fellows, and we hope to continue growing. We simply couldn’t do it without our supportive clients and our excellent staff. We’ve sold some incredible items over recent months, and the combined effort of everyone connected to the company is great to see.''

To build on the success of 2017 wasn’t enough for Fellows, we have already sold a fascinating piece of history in January 2018. An extremely rare and historic Second World War Panerai military Diver watch sold for a total price of £52 316. The alluring timepiece came into the possession of a British soldier during Operation Market Garden in the Netherlands - a critical point of the Second World War.
