Buy or Sell Vintage watches London

I am the owner of Watches Of Westminster please read the about me Section on my website. I really do like buying and selling watches especially vintage models ( anything up to late 90s ) even more so when they need some rescue / repair . Its not about the money ( thats a very long story ) and you do meet the most interesting people / customers in this business .

Sadly the most prominent company in this market Austin Kaye the cornerstone of vintage / high end watch retailing for over 60 years sadly closed their shop on the Strand central London. So many people ( even me ) have now have to forgo that lunchtime browse of gorgeous want to have watches ( I even went into the shop last year and nearly bought a Speedie at retail !!)

If your heading to London and want to look at a few of my watches just let me know and I would be happy to meet you at your hotel or any other (public ) location to suit in or around London and talk watches especially if that include a PX.

Its just what I do and it is for the fun of it

Here at Watches Of Westminster we will travel far and wide to buy the right watch whether vintage or modern even if it needs a service is a non runner.

We like bringing old watches back to life and giving new watches a good home and work seven days a week giving customers fast valuations from just a few pictures. Www are happy to travel to Hertfordshire and beyond to buy and sell the right watch and can arrange a suitable time outside of normal working hours to suit our customers needs.

If you are too far away we also provide a free postal service and can send you a postal pack so you don’t have the hassle of having to find the right packaging etc for the watch.

We can pay cash or bank transfer for your watch and don’t forget we also love a Part Exchange so if you have seen a watch on our website you like and want to exchange your watch ( running or not ) we can give you a price ( either way ) to change and deliver the watch to you .

Most other watch buyers have a long and complicated buying process and won’t travel to you. We are the exact opposite and have bought many watches from people simply not willing to go through the long drawn out process.

Heres a selection of some watches we have bought recently.

Heres another interesting find just in all the way from Greece a Heuer 3648S with a rare red numbered telemetre ring. The watch is running but is off for a much needed service tonight. It arrived with one of those little loved expanding bracelets which has now been changed but I’ve kept it as in 20 years time Im sure everyone will be saying ” couldn’t give them away “!!

 

The watch has certainly seen plenty of use and there is some discolouration to the dial and a light scratch but to many and myself a vintage watch is always more wearable and interesting with “weathering” after all who buys antiques that look brand new.

Keep an eye on the web site , it may be up for sale at some point in the future !

If you want to sell your Rolex GMT then here at Watches Of Westminster we love to buy vintage Rolex “tool” watches such as The Rolex GMT Master.

A 1971 GMT

We make the process very quick and simple . A staff member from Watches Of Westminster will also travel to your home to collect the Rolex GMT in person.

The Rolex GMT master came about in 1953 when Pan American Airlines and a airline from Europe ( quite possibly an Italian one ) actually approached Rolex ( who had one of the best reputations for tough accurate watches ) to develop a watch that could tell the time in 2 time zones. The Rolex GMT simply gets its name from Greenwich Mean Time and has been copied many times by other manufacturers.

Aeroplanes were not very sophisticated in those days as they are now and knowing the time in the time Zone you flew from and were flying to was quite important !

The watch with the Pepsi bezel is now an iconic design loved by many including myself ! The 2 below are in my collection !

WHAT ARE THEY WORTH ?

Part of our collection

Depends very much on age , dial condition and existence of paperwork and boxes but if you send us some decent pictures of the front and back of the watch plus any boxes or paperwork we can give you a fixed price for the watch the same day
