With a combined experience of over 50 years in the watch industry, it was a natural fit for friends and collectors, Jonathan Scatchard and Guy Nelson-Bolton to join forces and form the company, Investing in Time Limited.
Jonathan’s passion for Heuer watches is enhanced by Guy’s fascination and deep knowledge of Omega and its history. As prices continue to soar, the word ‘investment’ is a legitimate word to use when previously, ‘collecting’ would have been widely used to describe the interest in vintage watches.
For this reason, it is essential to spend wisely, secure in the knowledge that experienced dealers are able to offer both expertise and professional guarantees. These qualities are of huge importance to both Jonathan and Guy and they are only too happy to guide and advise potential investors.

Jonathan has worked with a multitude of brands over the years and is well-respected in the watch industry. Jonathan is renowned for his coordination of the very first Heuer-themed auction with Sotheby’s, alongside the former Managing Director of Tag Heuer (UK), Neil Duckworth. He is also recognised internationally for setting up the first Heuer website – www.vintageheuer.com
Jonathan is also the highly acclaimed author of the Miller’s Guide to Wristwatches, How to Compare and Value”, in addition to being a regular contributor to QP Magazine, International Wristwatch, Classic and Sports Car and BBC Radio Lincolnshire.
“Having struggled in the past to find a buyer to pay £450 for a new, old stock Heuer Monaco, to now see such pieces achieve figures in their tens of thousands, re-affirms the endless investment opportunities, something which never fails to excite me.”
“I have a huge list but my fondness for the original 1960s Carrera is too hard to match.”
Guy has an extensive knowledge and passion for both vintage and modern watches, specialising in Omega, Rolex and Breitling. He has built a large and extremely loyal following and is an important influence on vintageheuer’s sister site www.vintagewatchshop.com, a showcase for many quality vintage watches by other brands.
“I enjoy meeting like-minded people who never cease to inspire me and in this business, there is constantly scope to learn more.”
“It is an absolute ‘no-brainer’ for me – the Omega Speedmaster in all of its forms. A timeless design from 1957, steeped in history from its selection by NASA to be the first watch worn on the moon during Apollo 11, which remains to be one of the best horology stories ever.”
We were delighted to be invited to Tag Heuer Switzerland to a special vintage watch dealers day representing the UK. First up was a very interesting talk about the whole vintage watch market (which is booming, only the day before in Geneva several world record prices were set at auction) and the sharp increase in demand and price of Vintage Heuer watches. Tag have made a huge commitment to their vintage heritage by investing in workshops dedicated to the restoration and service of these vintage watches. We had a tour of these very impressive workshops and also the huge collection of parts, dials, bezels etc. Finally a visit to the on site museum where some of the most important timepieces from the archives are on display, including one of the Monacos worn by Steve Mcqueen on Le Mans, and even an Autavia supplied by us. The most impressive aspect of the day was the new dedication to the vintage watches which confirms the continuation of the rise of demand and ultimately ensures the investment opportunity of buying vintage Heuer watches.
