About Vintage Time Fine Watches

"I look forward to meeting you, and sharing our common interests of vintage time pieces.  

I enjoy the hunt of finding and bringing my customers new treasures. My specialties are vintage wrist and pocket watches. I have been collecting watches for more than 40 years, and I attend watch shows throughout the United States and Europe.

It is nice to meet some of you, on my monthly weekend trips to the Rose Bowl and Long Beach antique shows in Southern California. My passion for vintage watches is pure, and I love to see them go to people who appreciate them. Please feel free to email or text me at any time if you have any questions about the watches on my site. I have acesss to a very large selection of  original vintage watch parts, which allows me to service and repair most watches. Please let me knowif I can be ofassistance helping you find or repair the watch you love or have been seeking. "

For those of you new to vintage watch collecting I would like to share some important information with you. Vintage watches are like fine wine and vintage cars. Appreciate them with lots of care, and you will enjoy them for years to come.

  • Keep your vintage watches dry. Many vintage watches are not waterproof.
  • Please don't leave your watch near a sink, or shower, as steam is any vintage watches worst enemy.
  • NEVER wear any watch in a HOT shower, or tub, especially a jacuzzi.
  • HEAT will destroy even the very best and most costly brand NEW model of watch on the market today.

Don’t forget, when you step into the sauna, jacuzzi or shower, leave your watch in a safe place away from the heat and moisture.
