Does anyone know where you can find antique watches that have been refurbished and are in good quality?

I feel that antique watches are the epitome of class.

I would like to know others' feelings....

There are numerous places, I'm sure. In what city are you looking? Here in LA, I like "Wanna Buy a Watch?" on Melrose. My personal preference is also for antique watches. I don't believe that there is a single "epitome of class" in the watch dept."”there are some excellent contemporary mechanical watches, as well"”but I do feel antiques offer the most class for the buck, if such a thing is measurable.

pstoller,

I'm interested in checking this place out while I'm in L.A., but am worried about buying something and having it break once I go back to D.C.  Have you been satisfied with the quality of the watch(es) you have purchased from this establishment?

Yes, I have been. I bought my fiancÃ
e a beautiful watch there, after spending a very long time making a choice with the help of an unflaggingly patient saleswoman. When I had a problem with it losing time, they fixed it immediately. (It turned out one of the hands was bent slightly downward and was catching on the numbers; the mechanism itself was fine.) Since then, it has run flawlessly. Likewise, when Tricia wanted to get a watch for me, she couldn't decide which of two to get, so she picked up one model (an Illinois "Manhattan") first. Then, we went back to the store together, and when I preferred the "Beau Geste" model, they made the exchange without a hitch. I haven't had a single problem with it, and I wear it every day. If you're interested in vintage watches at all, you should check out their web site: Wanna Buy A Watch?
