Our Story

KibbleWatches is where you come to buy and sell watches, regardless of budget, brand, age or requirements. Situated at our office in Clerkenwell, London we are a small team of watch enthusiasts. Starting from humble beginnings in Leicester buying and selling on eBay.

James Kibble, our founder, moved through retail with high-end jewellers and auctions gaining experience and knowledge. During this time a seed was sown and a move to London pushed James on to create KibbleWatches into a full-time thriving business.

At the end of 2021 we moved into a bigger office in Clerkenwell. It has a welcome feel, where you can experience the watches first hand through our appointment system. We handle watches from a few hundred pounds to multiple thousands, specialising in the unusual and unique watches that you wouldn't normally see for sale. Our watches are sourced from collectors who care passionately about watches as we do.

Through our website KibbleWatches.co.uk you can easily search for a watch, with the use of high detailed macro, lifestyle photography and descriptions giving details not only of the watch itself but a brief history of the brand, giving you confidence that you are buying and selling through a reputable dealer.

Our presence over December 2020 in Savile Row at "The Service" really encapsulated our professional credentials, finding new friends and customers with the same passion for watches, it was an exciting and beneficial adventure for the business.

As a company we participated in the London Watch Show in August 2021 and March 2022. These were in fact great opportunity to have face to face contact with existing customers and spread the word to reach new and future clients. We had a wide range of watches on display to show the variety of which we cover and will participate in more events and shows like this across the country.

As our reputation has continued to grow, we have been encouraged and supported by watch brands in the UK, one such brand is Fears Watches, who have the same aspiring enthusiasm and professionalism as we do. As an authorised dealer for Fears Watches we offer a unique experience in London for the respective buyer/collector, enjoying a chat and a coffee whilst trying on the Fears collection. We are proud to be a stockist for The Strap Tailor, a British brand. Whilst having a constant range of our personal favourite straps in stock, we can help our customers get their own custom strap to complete their watch.

Our friendly and approachable personalities create an atmosphere, where you can be assured of excellent service and attention to detail.
