    I can swear there was a cool little watchmaker that sold vintage right nearby the Rastababy Cafe and ganga bar I went to on Princ Hendrikkade but I dont seem to remember much about it

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    A big store with loads of the coolest vintages is called Amsterdam Watch Co and is located at the Reestraat 3 - nice for window shopping ^^

    Not sure about small shops to find bargains tho, I'd certainly try the pawnshops (a pawnshop is called 'lommerd' or 'pandjeshuis' in dutch.
