We feel watches are first and foremost investments and secondly, works of art. For example, Rolex historically goes up 18% per year in the spring. If you bought a 1972 Rolex in 1972—your money has gone up 10 times. A watch you buy from us today, has the potential to double in price in the next five years. Not bad for being able to wear a piece of art. For us, it is better to have 100 watches in the safe than money in the bank or stock market.
We take pride in pricing each piece based on the rarity, quality and restoration. Our prices are generally higher. There is good reason for that. Watches are not taken in and sent out. They are inspected, repaired, restored when needed and timed out. 100% satisfaction is guaranteed at collectorvintagewatches.com. We want you to be thrilled by your collector watch.
We wish for this to be fun for all parties. Life is way too short to make a job out of such a delightful thing as collecting watches. We are a team of three; dad, daughter and son-in-law. Dad is the collector, repairman and studier, and would rather be working on a watch or just finding the very best watch possible than doing just about anything else. Daughter is the one that keeps all the pieces in the air, and the son-in-law is the artful photographer and jack of all trades.
We hope you enjoy browsing our vintage watch catalog and seeing what we feel are not only works of art, but pieces of irreplaceable history.
