    Vintage Watches NYC

    Hello all. I've been looking around the Internet to find some good websites that sell vintage timepieces for a while now, but good ones are few and far between and many that do have a decent variety are overpriced. Additionally I'd rather buy a vintage piece in person. So do any of you know of any reputable places around New York City (five boros and maybe some of Jersey) where I would be able to find some vintage timepieces at a reasonable price (not much more than $2000) for instance. My preference is Rolex, Tudor and Universal Geneve but I am open to other good finds. Thanks in advance.

    Ah, at last!! This question has been asked before and now we have an answer! ... next visit!

    "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!

    His place is fantastic. At the back you will find lower cost pieces.
    Ask for Edward Faber, you can mention me/and Greg Hart, I think you will get a discount.

    I have both his book and his watches
