Magnetism in mechanical watches and even in quartz watches
appears to be on the increase. This can cause a watch to run either
fast, slow or not at all.
There are a number of common problems, mostly caused by shipping
that can be resolved without having to send the watch back. Go here to read more about this.
If you are having problems or trying to regulate or time your watch you should read this page in
We have a very good selection of new and vintage watch chains and new

If you want to
know what we do to prepare a watch to be listed on this website for sale go

preparing a watch for sale.
We move watches to the sold page soon after a sale, so you may have to

Vintage watches are like everything else that is old.
There can be unexpected and unexplained problems, this is just part of
being a vintage anything collector. We will work with you to the best of
our ability to resolve problems, please read this entire page for
details. If you are first time buyer of pocket
watches or have very little experience with them please read the
information on the pocket watch page.
We offer a five day return policy should you not be satisfied with
your purchase. If problems surface after the return period we will work
with you to resolve them, but there is no warranty or guarantee of any
kind and purchase price refunds will not be made. When repairs do not require parts there is no
charge other than return shipping and we usually even pay the return shipping
for 90 days after sale. When parts are needed it will depend on the
part. For example if the mainspring would break a month or so after
purchase we will replace it for free*, if the balance staff is broken we
would charge for that repair. The difference being the prior cannot
normally be caused by how the watch is handled and the latter usually
is. The option to charge for repairs or not is 100% our choice and will
be determined by what we find wrong with a watch. It simply is not
possible to offer any warranty or imply any warranty on vintage
timepieces. Many parts needed to repair vintage watches are not
available so some repairs are not possible irrespective of what we find.
Please read all of our policies on this page of
the website. Do not take any watch you may want us to work on under
the terms of this paragraph to any other repair shop or jeweler without our prior agreement in writing (email). If you do it voids everything
in this paragraph.
Because of the high
shipping cost and import taxes "International
Sales" make returns for any reason challenging. These
complications can result in hard feelings on the part of the buyer that
I would prefer to avoid.
international purchase is made the buyer will be contacted by email and
must agree by return email to the following: I will understand if a
buyer does not want to agree and if payment was made with PayPal I will
refund that payment.
The following applies to
international sales only, Canada excepted.
If PayPal does
offer seller protection for the destination country the watch must
be paid for by Western Union cash transfer. A 4% discount on the
purchase price not including shipping cost will apply to offset this
cost to the purchaser.
Shipping cost are not
refunded under any circumstances on international sales.
The buyer agrees to
accept the 5 day inspection period and agrees that after that period
as determined by the USPS tracking documentation the sale is final
and that no refund or return will be requested of the seller for any
The seller is not
responsible for any custom fees or duties on any purchase for any
When a watch is
returned for repairs the buyer agrees to pay for shipping both ways
and to pay any additional custom fees that may result. Import taxes
may be charged on returned repairs and even though it is wrong once
charged these fees are very difficult to get refunded. Repairs may or
may not be charged for at the sole discretion of the seller.
When a watch is
returned for any reason for a refund and the seller in its sole discretion
determines the watch is damaged cost of repairs will be deducted
from any refund.
The buyer agrees that
no claim of any kind will be made with PayPal or any associated
credit card company for any payment made to the seller for any
The buyer agrees that
the watch will not be taken to any other person or shop for repairs
without the written consent of the seller.
We will do everything
we can to make every purchase a satisfactory experience, but the cost
associated with international shipping and very thin margins makes it impossible to do so at
our expense like we do on many domestic sales.

business hours but do retire at about 10:00 pm eastern standard
