    Has anyone ordered from ThoseWatchGuys?

    They are in Massachusetts and have a small but interesting selection and a social media presence (Instagram, Facebook). http://thosewatchguys.com

    I can say this about them - I just ordered a vintage Hamilton Thin-O-Matic (Linen dial - totally love them!) and inquired about how long it would take to ship given that I'll be out of town over the holidays and I get an immediate reply.

    We'll see how this vintage thing goes - my only other vintage watch is Soviet (assembled in Poland) and so far I can't find anyone who is willing to work on it...

    Any feedback on these two guys?

    Just had a look at their watches- some good pieces, they don't seem to overprice them, although they've sold some truly awful stuff at outrageous prices too, like these:
    An $700 Omega redial...Omega Seamaster Salmon Dial — Those Watch Guys

    Really, that much for a Cimier with a Lapanouse pin-lever?
    Cimier World Timer — Those Watch Guys

    But besides these two specimens from their archive, their offer seems OK to me.

    That Hamilton is a nice piece and the microtor movement is ofcourse a cool bonus. Do you know if they offer their watches serviced?

    I don't know about "full" servicing. The website claims that each piece is lubed and working. The return policy states that the watches they sell are in running condition, acknowledges the limits of vintage timepieces, and states that if the watch is off by more than 4 minutes a day they'll take it back within 7 days for full refund.

    Re: Has anyone ordered from ThoseWatchGuys?

    Thanks for the comments and the questions guys. I understand this model is tough to work on and wears easily and it may (in the future) be difficult to find servicing. Perhaps I should have spent even longer looking around before pulling the trigger. But I figured someone would scoop up the watch quickly if I didn't act. Paid $275.

    Oh man, sorry I guess! I will definitely let you know how it works out. There are two very fine Omega linen dials out there for $800-900 that I've seen recently. My wife is *exceptionally* freaked out about my instant watch obsession so it seemed like this would be a price & commitment level that would fly.

    I will definitely report on the watch when it arrives on Friday-ish.

    I can say this for the shop - their email communication is superb so far.

    And there was a gorgeous Tudor with a linen dial (exact same shade of silver/gray) that sold here on this site today I think. About $1200.
