Announcement    Watchfinders wants to be your source for value priced vintage watches delivered to USA destinations. We do not ship outside the USA. We still sell on eBay and at various watch shows. We will strive to see that you are satisfied with your purchase.

Your purchase will be shipped insured, online tracked with delivery confirmation in the United States, SO PLEASE CONTACT ME if you are outside the United States before trying to purchase. In the event of a return under our refund conditions we do not pay return shipping. We accept Paypal for credit card purchases, check, or money order.

The following statement conveys our true feeling about watches...

A mechanical wristwatch, if manufactured with a certain level of quality, is a vital feature of human culture and craftsmanship.

A quartz watch, on the other hand, is an element of technology. Because technology is always changing, eventually the quartz watch will disappear. That is why we relate to a watch as an element of culture rather than an element of technology.

Collecting Mechanical Timepieces

I have been collecting watches since 1998. I have also had an online presence since that time. I was fortunate enough to meet a master watchmaker in the year 2000 and studied under this man to learn mid level watch repair. He has now passed on, but I am forever grateful for the time spent and patience exhibited along my journey. It has allowed me to perform many repairs on the vintage watches that I buy, however I still send some watches to a watchmaker for more intricate repair like you would typically find with more complicated watches like chronographs.

    I have been collecting, buying and selling vintage watches since 1998. It is a passion I have based on a deep fondness of the detailed and individual manufacturing process undertaken by skilled craftsman of earlier days.
