Useful Information

Many of our watches never make it onto our web-site before they are sold to waiting customers, so, if you are looking for a specific watch, please remember to email us at or directly though the web-site and we might have it already or we can source a superb example for you.

We will also buy your vintage watch from you at a very competitive price or take it in part exchange for one of ours, even if yours is no longer working. Please call on 01963 359352 or 07949 190 301 for a quote or send us an e-mail with your telephone number and we will call you. We will consider any vintage watch and offer very good prices for watches even if they are not already featured on our site or not working.

If you see a watch that you like in our "Previously Sold" section or are after a particular watch, we may be able to source another the same or similar for you.

All our watches are serviced, where necessary, by our very experienced watchmaker before they are offered for sale. All missing or broken parts are replaced with original parts only, where possible. Our watchmaker was Chief Watchmaker with Garrard's, the Queen's Jewellers, one of London's most prestigious stores, from 1949 until his retirement in 1994 and has over 60 years experience in watch repair!

We believe that our watches are the best examples of their particular models and are in absolutely superb condition even better than our photographs can show when you get them in your hand. All our watches are guaranteed to be in perfect working order with all functions working excellently and all our watches are ready to wear.

We offer a free twelve (12) months mechanical Warranty from the date of delivery on all the watches that we sell (see Warranty and Guarantee section).

Crucially, we also offer you an on-going after-sales service for any mechanical problems that you may encounter with your watch after the expiry of this warranty period, so you never need to worry.

Please treat your vintage watch with care and respect, they are highly engineered pieces and are not guaranteed water-proof or shock-proof (even if they once were) and are not to be worn, for example, in the shower, humid environments or swimming-pools or whilst playing sports.

Please allow three full winds and run-downs for your watch to settle after travel. 

All dials are original factory finish unless expressly stated as "restored".

All watch diameter measurements are excluding the winding crown unless specified.

We ship all our watches overseas using DHL Couriers, fully trackable all the way to your door.
