We have been serving vintage watch collectors for over 35 years. The first nineteen years (1973 - 1992) saw the operation of a vintage watch retail location in West Los Angeles, California. From 1992 to present we have been operating by appointment only and the internet with WATCHCOMPANY.COM. Yes, I guess you could refer to me as "an old timer" in this business. In 1973 I was a corporate employee and a clock and watch collector. It all began with an interesting idea.
In 1973, I would purchase huge quantities of watches & clocks at NAWCC conventions and sell them at a local flee market. That was the Westwood Village midnight flee market located in California next to the U.C.L.A. Campus. I sold buckets of watches in as is condition publicly for what ever cheap price the market would bear for the next four years. It was a hobby gone public! A vintage watch industry that became international a few years latter was born right there! Yes, I love doing this, because every watch has a unique history and represents the most important and expensive personal object a man owned in it's day. Yes, I am addited to the business of collecting vintage watches, however, I do not compete with my clients. We have sold over 3000 watches on E-Bay since 1998 with over 99% positive feedback. You can buy from us with confidence. I am here to serve my collector client friends! Good hunting, and please consider bookmarking this site. Regards, Lance Thomas/watchcompany.com
