As far back as I can remember I have had a fascination for mechanical devices. My mother can attest to numerous kitchen appliances that I borrowed to dismantle and discover what made them work. It is no wonder that later in life I attended engineering school. There I gained a great appreciation for precision design and quality.
To me, high grade old watches epitomize precision design and engineering. Multiple jewels for bearings, adjustments to compensate for position and temperature, engine turned movements, ornate porcelain dials and beautiful gold cases are attributes of fine craftsmanship. I have collected old wrist watches, pocket watches and automotive clocks for 25 years. Like many collections it has grown beyond that which I can display and personally enjoy. It is for this reason that I have constructed this site in hopes of finding good homes for some.
I hope you find the perfect watch to add to your collection.
