Welcome to my site. I began collecting watches some years ago and, like a great many of my friends with the same passion, I soon found myself selling items to fund another ‘must have’ purchase. As a result I became, for want of a better description, a part time dealer. Part time being a relative term of course! I realise buying online can be a daunting prospect which is why i built this site. I’m a real person with a real showroom and a passion for dealing and meeting with like minded people. So drop me a line if you would like to view anything in person as I’m happy to welcome you to my showroom in south cheshire anytime.
This website reflects me. I am a real person and would happily meet every single person who wants to buy a watch from me. That’s why i have a showroom in south cheshire and you are more than welcome to visit any time to view a particular piece or collection. I realise for many of you that might not be practical given I have sold watches as far afield as the USA and Canada as well as Brunei and continental Europe. So to make the experience as genuine as possible I have invested in this website and spend a small fortune on high quality photography to present to you completely unedited, genuine pictures of my actual collection. There are no library shots of product on this site. Just the genuine article, in all their glory. Having said that once people see the product in person they are always surprised by the quality on offer which is far and away the best outcome. It goes without saying though that every purchase comes with a 14 day money back guarantee and a personal 6 month mechanical guarantee. I think it’s as risk free a purchase of a vintage watch you’re ever likely to get.
So why do I do this?
Over the years I have had many conversations with collectors and it appears we all share one thing above anything else and that is the thrill of the chase, acquiring that beautiful piece to finish our collections even if, in reality, we all know those collections can never really be finished. For me it’s as simple as that. I love what i do and i think that love will come through on this site. I love being able to pass on items to people i know will appreciate them. It also enables me to continue to source great items that i can, in turn, cherish for a while and pass on again. I have come to believe that a private collection sat safely in a deposit box in a dark vault somewhere is a waste of the mechanical and design genius of these items and the stories they can still tell.
I am delighted to have met some of the most genuine people I know through my ‘hobby’ and now i am lucky enough to have been able to take my interest and expand it through this web site. I hope and trust you will enjoy your visit and please feel free to drop me a line with any comments and feedback, even if it’s to point out any obvious flaws and ways to improve things!
