This website is unique among all others offering vintage watches for sale online in the sheer amount of detail that it supplies for each item shown. In every instance, the watches are analysed to the most in depth extent, with assessments made as to the condition of their cases, dials and movements. A vast amount of background detail is given with each listing, with everything from model references to serial numbers right through to case maker’s addresses included. There is no caveat emptor approach here, and the customer can be absolutely sure of what he’s buying.
None of the text on this site is regurgitated material, cut and pasted from other sources or plagiarised from any of the reference books that are available. Everything here is original work, written specifically for use on this site, and has been painstakingly prepared by sifting through literally thousands of period adverts, tracking down employees of long closed factories, studying articles in industry publications from half a century or more years ago, often in languages other than English, and a whole host of other sources.
Watch journalism or, if perhaps more appropriately named, watch archaeology, takes up a huge amount of time. Every description used on this site required somewhere between four and seven hours of research and writing time, which is a reason why, realistically, only a fraction of our stock will ever be featured here, despite an attempt being made to add several new watch listings each week. This isn’t the easy way of selling vintage watches, but it certainly is the highest quality approach and the result is something that we are extremely proud of, which rather brings us to the crux of this article.
We deliberately have an extremely friendly attitude to business and will always go out of our way to assist people in any way we can, whether they are one-off buyers, regularly purchasing collector customers or simply the interested general public at large. If we can help, we unhesitatingly will do so, and there is even a specific section of this site aimed at those in the media industry who may require assistance with vintage wristwatch related articles they are producing. But the one thing that will have us becoming far less amiable, very quickly, is the unauthorised use of our text and pictures. Watch descriptions of this standard take, collectively, many thousands of hours to produce and if we see our text or photographs appearing elsewhere online, including use in internet auction and forum contexts, we will immediately take legal action via a specialist copyright lawyer located in the country of publication. There are no exceptions to this policy.
