The Omega watch company have been in existence since 1848 and have built up a very fine reputation throughout the world for high quality watches.
Some of the history of the Omega watch includes:
Today watches are not only an item to be worn for the practical purpose of telling the time but they have become so much more than that. Quality watches are now a fashion accessory and are now regarded as a status symbol giving some perceived indication of the wearer’s style and wealth.
The watch brands, models, material used in the construction, exclusivity of the watch, reputation, age and the movement all contribute to establishing if a watch will appreciate in value in the coming years.
Throughout Omega’s watch making history, their main competitor has been Rolex and although Rolex watches are highly desirable and collectable, they generally have a different set of clients; maybe younger with a not so ostentatious look. Omega has in the last 50 years focused a huge amount of its attention on the branding and marketing of their watches using high profile celebrities to promote their watches worldwide.
Omega is, without a doubt, a very fine luxury watch brand that originated in Switzerland and is now owned by Swatch. Their watches are highly regarded in the watch and collectors market place and if you are sensible with your choice after doing some research, then you will have a purchased a luxury watch that will appreciate in value year on year.
Omega watches are a well-respected and high quality stylish timepiece brand that over the years has moved with the times developing its range but not compromising in anyway on its quality and desirability.
In order for the purchase of an Omega watch to be a sound investment, it is important to understand that if you are purchasing a new watch from a retail showroom, the value of the watch will disintegrate immediately. This is not a poor reflection on Omega watches but it is just the norm on generally all watch sales. Vintage watches are where you will earn your money. Firstly before you purchase a vintage Omega watch, do your research. An original vintage Omega watch is what all self-respecting watch collectors are looking for. Along with the watches original box and papers and the watch being in good condition. These are all the hallmarks of a solid investment.
Here at Watches of Westminster, we specialise in Vintage watches of all brands and have a number of vintage Omegas for sale. Feel free to browse our second hand and vintage watch sales page and if you have a watch to sell or Part Exchange just get in contact.

We specialise in buying vintage watches that are in need of some TLC. so if you have a broken vintage watch please let us know.
A broken vintage watch has often been left in the back of a drawer or handed down through the family but have not been serviced for many years or are in need of repair.
Sometimes these watches do make it to the local repair shop who can’t repair them ( watchmaking is a dying art ) or they ( the so called watch repairers ) simply want to send them away for a very expensive overhaul. This can often cost as much as the watch is worth and quite often the watches value is ruined by the original hands or dial being changed ( DONT DO IT !! ).
We are happy to look at any interesting or high end vintage watch you have in any condition even if not running as we love rescuing once great time pieces and giving them a new home.
We can also look at your old watch and PX it against one of our more modern watches or even a newly serviced vintage watch. Theres nothing we won’t consider. Just contact us via the web site or even call us on 07768316371 and ask for Simon.
This is an interesting watch I recently bought from my watchmaker ( he is great at vintage watch repairs ) ! he had to change the glass and free up the bezel but other than that its now become my daily wearer and is in effect a rescued broken vintage watch. Yes even quartz watches can be vintage and asI forget to wind my watches up wearing this watch is not a problem.
Not all broken vintage watches can be repaired as many of the parts are not available ( Rolex will not stock or sell parts ) so its often a waiting game until the parts come up normally on Ebay.

At Watches Of Westminster we pride ourselves on our fast and personal service.
Unlike all other watch buyers we will travel to you for the right watch and can meet you at your bank to arrange a transfer or we can by prior arrangement pay cash or even by Paypal if you live a great distance from us .
We can inspect the watch when we meet and then and confirm our valuation and make price and payment.It is very rare that having seen a watch our valuation changes in fact , I cant remember the last time that happened other than when I met a chap with a watch that was working when he left home ( and I believed him ) but just didn’t want to run when we met. In the end I could see that the watch was just needing a good service and was vey gummed up inside so there was no problem in completing the deal.Just below is the watch I bought and I even drove 200 miles to pick it up as the seller preferred p
Some good quality pictures are usually all we need although our valuations are based on being able to inspect the watch at a place of your convenience. We travel all over the UK.
Here are some pictures of watches we have recently purchased , if you have anything similar please let us know by visiting the web site or simply calling us on 07768316371 and ask for Simon.
Theres no risk and no obligation !

Pawning your vintage watch ?
If you want to sell your vintage watch in London it can be a relatively simple process if you know where to go.
We’re not talking about your average high-street pawnbrokers. These sorts of establishments should be avoided if you intend to really get your goods back.
Unfortunately, when you bypass the local Cash Converters next door to a chicken shop for a more reputable pawnbroking business, you’re trading in your precious time and patience for only a fractional decrease in funding costs.
A solution then, is what’s needed.
Fortunately, here at Watches of Westminster we offer a watch buying service that combines the best of both worlds.
As we are a small and honest online business and you need not worry about the indignity of daylight robbery, nor the frustrating rigmarole of waiting three weeks only to be told that your watch is of no interest.
Instead, we are perfectly happy to come to your home or at work ( for the right watch ) provided your watch fits in with our buying guidelines ( we specialise in vintage watches between five hundred and ten thousand pounds especially if they need some refurbishment ) , and will inspect and evaluate what’s on offer then and give you a valuation free of charge !
We can buy your watch on the spot or if you prefer give you the value in cash or bank transfer and then give you 4 weeks ( 28 days ) to repay the purchase price and get your watch back as part of our buy back program.
This is in effect a interest free loan but we are not pawnbrokers so don’t have to make our money from charging massive interest rates.
So why not contact us on 07768316371 or email@example.com to start the fast and simple process to receive some money for that watch in your drawer or the unwanted gift gathering dust !
Here are some of the vintage watches we have recently bought but we will consider any interesting brand/watch.
