A budget vintage watch collection - Page 6

post #76 of 83
Beautiful watches. I thought it couldn't be done in that price range, but you have proven me wrong and have inspired me to start one of my own

Thanks for posting some really beautiful watches.

EBay aside, can anyone offer any good recommendations on where to find similar watches? I need a "Buying and Selling" forum for vintage watches.

I don't own a watch but I do love the vintage look of the Omega semasters and some of the other one's posted on here. How do you know they are authentic when purchased through websites/ebay?

Late to the party here. There's some absolutely gorgeous stuff here--in much better condition than the stuff I'm seeing on ebay. Do you guys take it in/clean it up after purchase, etc? Or wait for the ones in excellent condition?

great story..

"Omega Seamaster De Ville automatic, gold bezel on steel monocoque case, ca. 1960. Used to be my grandfather's, until he took it in to a shop for repair. The shopkeeper proceeded to tell him that nothing could be done, offered to throw it away for him, and sold him a Timex. He left the watch there. I heard about it a couple of weeks later, drove down to the shop with smoke coming out of my ears, and found the watch, repaired and nicely cleaned up, in the shop's glass counter. I asked to try it on, explained the situation to the man, and told him I would be leaving with the watch. He locked the door and threatened to call the police. I then volunteered to stay and explain the situation to the law, the press and the local chamber of commerce. After an uncomfortable silence, he unlocked the door, and I left."

whats the name of the store??....perhaps you can prevent other people from making the same mistake with this shop

Woow! great watches here I do not own a watch but to be honest there is a real deal here that can easily lure me. For the prices I again say that this is a real deal. Just wondering where to get them from London, anyone with an idea?
