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.

WATCHES OF WESTMINSTER SPECIALISE IN MAKING THE SELLING OF YOUR VINTAGE OMEGA SPEEDMASTER WATCH AS SIMPLE AS POSSIBLE.
Here at Watches Of Westminster we love buying Omega Speedmasters especially vintage models and we can complete purchases the same day.
Here is a Omega Speedmaster we recently bought. Its totally original and having just been serviced it is running perfectly. You can get more details from our watch sales page .
All Speedsters are special and there are a huge variety of them including price ranges . If you want an investment watch that you can wear and pass on then a Speedmaster is a good candidate. The pre moon watches are getting very pricey these days but M11’s can still be found for reasonable prices but as ever do your research and if buying remotely pay via Paypal !
If you like the super accurate timing of quartz watches Omega also made a digital Speedmaster ;
The old adage of buying the best you can really does apply and unless you have a good idea of what you are doing its best to buy from a High St store or a well known seller who has their reputation to look after.
To make it more interesting why not buy yourself a birthdate watch , they are available from 1957 ( very very expensive ) up to present day. Why not buy a new model to mark the birth of your son or daughter. It will be a daily reminder of that joyous moment in time.

The Bovet watch name is not so well known to some watch buyers but the company has a long and prestigious history starting in 1822 but its founder Edouard Bovet ( 1797 to1849 ) was in fact the son of a watchmaker and he went to London to study watchmaking ( don’t forget England was the centre of watchmaking ( a long story for another blog )) and he started the Bovet watch company in 1822 seemingly to capitalise on the export market to China ( how things change ).
As ever the Chinese market dived ( 1855 ) partly due to counterfeits ( just shows theres nothing new in watches !) the company was purchased in 1888.
The following is an extract from Wikepedia
In 1901, the Bovet trademark was sold at auction in Paris to Cesar and Charles Leuba, sons of Ami Leuba. Jacques Ullmann and Co., another successful production of watches for the Chinese market, purchased the Bovet brand in 1918. After Jacques Ullmann went out of business in 1932, the Bovet name was bought by Albert and Jean Bovet ( some family connection ?) , who were successful watch makers and registered several patents for chronographs, such as the mono rattrapante—a device that would pause the second hand for a reading while the mechanism continued to run. The company Favre-Leuba purchased the name and manufacturing facilities from the Bovet brothers in 1948.
This therefore leads us to this really attractive watch we have recently purchased which as 34 mm is a pleasant size on the wrist and one of the prettiest chronographs I have seen for some time.
We would love to buy more Covets so if you have one please let us know.
If your interested in this watch here is our advert for it.
Take a look and contact us for more details.

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.
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 ?
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
